I don't see anyone talking about this game really. I think I read someone said don't bother buying this for the single player. Is that true? If multiplayer is awesome, then that would probably be worth it.

So, what's up?

The multiplayer is incredible if you get in a squad. The single player is sub par.

I wouldnt call the single player sub par. I love every bit of this game so far, I cant wait to get all the weapons and other interchangeable shit so I can fully customize my mech biggrin.gif Im so glad I got this game.

For everyone who bashed this game rent it and play it on live its so damn fun, needs some graphical improvements, like crashed hounds, and terrain damage, but other than that I love this game. I'm so glad I got it. Worth every penny, and not to mention the weapons packs that sega promises to keep rolling out. It just gets better.

I have probably sat in the lobby tweaking my hounds for over 10 hours. I just cant stop making new ones. But at the same time I have over 65 hours of gameplay on it too. About 10 on the single player, and the rest fighting on live. Its such an awesome game. I really hope they can make a second installment of this game somewhat soon (next year or so) with some improved textures, thats about it, maybe a little more damage effects and less scripted building destruction. But honestly I dont even notice that shit when I'm in a battle, it would just be a nice addon. I love this game.

Had a go on this for the first time today and was hooked. Always loved the old Mechwarrior games on my PC and this was excellent. Still havent had a go on Live yet but loving the single player game so far.

It's great if you can ever actually get into a game.

Oh, and if it doesn't fry your 360:

I'm gonna buy it.. but I'm afraid of it killin my 360 (Warranty dies in a few days).

I guess if it freezes once wihle I'm playing, i'll just take the disc out.. From what I've read on the internet, the more you reboot the game, the more frequently it crashes, and if you do it alot of times, the crashing spreads to other parts of your 360 and then eventualy gives you the red error lights.. O.o We'll see.

I love the game. Theres so much to do.

Online, youre basically fighting a real war. You pick one of the 3 countries and join a squad (like a clan) and fight in certain areas to try to take over enemy land or reclaim your own land. You can play against computer or human opponents. You can also do solo missions online to earn cash to buy mech parts, and you can do free battle against other human opponents, typical deathmatch, team deathmatch, etc. type stuff. And of course, theres the whole mech customization bit. Each country sells their own variety of parts with different traits. Its so great!

Wow, I just picked this up after hearing that the multi was great. I played only the first training mission and then went online. It takes a bit to get used to the online as it's got a few screens to learn, but once you've learned it it's easy. I'm fighting for the blue team (forget the name, but it's american) and joined a clan last night. People in my clan are great and helped me to learn a few things like setting my mech up, how to join clan games and such. Overall I had a really fun time with this last night. Unfortunatly we didn't get to fight any human players last night, but only CPU players (it was 12am EST when I started, so not the best time to find alot of ppl online).

Only dislike I really have about the game is the already mentioned explosions. The explosions look great and the fire is awesome, but the wreckage disappears in 2 seconds. Really, if there is alot of smoke when it's gone the destroyed mech is nowhere in site. Not a big thing, but they could definatly improve that.

Can't wait to get home and play this biggrin.gif

Also thanks for giving this great reviews, I'm happy I picked it up. wink.gif
