Just posting to let anyone know that was considering picking up this baby, that it is well worth the $$. By far the best mech sim i've ever played, the graphics are very realistic (except for the human models, but you only see them for like one scene in the game) and this controller is amazing, i built a custom table for it and the pedals so i could slide it around the room as needed. It does have a learning curve, and is far more complicated than mech assault, but once you learn it, it'll be all you want to play.

only downside is that it's not live enabled, had it been it would have been the greatest videogame in the history of the planet. (even better then river city ransom)

yea, slick and his gang took over the school and kidnapped your girlfriend. so you and your brother go and kick some ass. you upgrade your stats by buying sushi, etc. and you can learn new moves by reading tech books. the guys that you fought were from diff cliques, like the jocks and frat guys.
it was made by the same people that did dodge ball. it was actually a whole high school rivalry series. volleyball, world cup soccer, dodge ball, and then crash and the boys was like olympic stuff. there was even a sequel that was released for the snes in japan. i only briefly played the rom, though.

oh and when you killed the bad guys, they'd say things like 'barf.' that's classic.

geez.... back on topic...


Maybe no one else except this first guy has seen this game

A mech game with ordinary graphics that was made for a HUGE stupid monstosity of 40 button propritary controller, with indiv buttons for functions like fire extinquisher, eject, lights, bla bla bla

But dont worry, only a true nerd would take interest in somthing like this, developers will still make cool games, dont panic

To who ever made the first post... sorry, but this game is for lame lame kids, save yourself and go get mgs2/splintercell/a gf/dog/UC/ANYTHING to keep you away from this

btw its WAY geek-ier then Never winter nights OR morrowind

Yes, I have it... it is cool, but after you play it awhile the novelty wears off and you have to rent an extra apartment just to keep the controller out of the way. BTW the controller FEELS MUCH CHEAPER than it looks. Go out to Best Buy or Circuit City and feel the CHEAPEST flight stick they have... well, it's worse than that. Yes, there are a lot of buttons... yes, most light up, but, damn, it feels like shit. Luckily the cool factor, and graphics... and even gameplay make up for it a little. The pedals aren't too bad, though...

Just make sure you have a place and a way to set it up. It does NOT work on your lap... you must have a desk OR a table to set this on.

If you aren't DYING to play this... wait a little while after it comes out, and buy it at Funcoland or something.

its sad people like you exist, a game doesn't have to me 'extreme' and "to the maxx" to be good, just because something's technically sound, and not based on porn stars on BMX bikes doesn't make it bad. But alas, the game is great and i just wanted to let you guys know that. also there's nothing wrong with being a geek, though morrowind was utterly horrible in my mind, you labeling me a geek makes no difference one way or another.
