However, tension rises when a U.C.S. orbital elevator is destroyed by unknown forces. Dylan Ramsey, a young engineer, finds himself quickly caught in a swirl of destruction, conspiracies and crumbling alliances in a new war brewing between the O.C.U. and the U.C.S.

this is an awesome game
really fun gameplay with solid controls
just don't use a gamepad (or even have one plugged in) during the on foot segments (it'll crash often if you do)
still an amazingly fun game though
good mech customization as well

To be completely honest, I believe this may be the Strongest Ground Base Mecha Game on Steam today.
Despite the fact that this game has came out on 2010, it's core mechanics are Solid .

In combat, you will have four places to target in enemy Wanzers (otherwise to us, Mechas). The torso, each respective arms, and the legs. While the torso represents the main health, each other part will contribute to your Combat Abilities. You break them, your ability to fight will become that much more crippled.
Now this will mean you need to play smart. Seriously smart. I won't joke around when I say Mobility is a Key factor in this game.

Your Wanzer's ability to Skate around is your most powerful tool the Controller can utilise.
That being said, if your Legs (aka, your Skating Mobility) gets destroyed, you'll be crippled like a horse missing a leg. You're gonna have a bad time. So better get looking for a health pack!
The main reason why I emphasize the importance of Mobility is because you can Quite Literally, dodge Everything.
'Oh, are those a trail of Machine Gun Bullets aimed at me? Let me keep dashing to the side!'
'Huh, is there a shower of Mortal coming down from the sky? Better Skate out of the way!'
'Grrr, is that a suicide brawler after my ♥♥♥? Better Kite backwards while shooting!'
'Ah, is that a series of Homing Missiles Locked onto me? I think I should Stutter-Step left and right!'

On top of that, anytime during the game, when you realize that a certain Arsenal of Weapon Choice isn't working out and frustrating you, You Can Change It Midgame.
Yes, I said that right; you can ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ change your Loadout during the middle of the mission without restarting it.
As a gamer that enjoys trying each type of weapon available, I can't emphasize how grateful this Privilege the developers have implemented into the game. It shows a great understanding for perspective on our behalf.
Gone are the days where you need to restart the game to change your playstyle! … Oops, I forgot that Triple A Developers now Suck Again Q.Q

☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆
But there are some few problems…
Generic Characters. Linear Story. Cut Paste Voice Acting. Companion Battle Ai Non-existent. Lack of NG+.
Bosses can get sometimes infuriating at some OP things (but the game does its part in stepping stones to teach you how to overcome it.)
The Core Item Drops of Energy refills are missing for 95% of the game. I believe the flexibility of the Game could’ve improved so much more if that was available.
Multiplayer is dead. Q.Q I want my achievements pl0x!!! No other Single Player Options besides the Campaign too (least give me Survival Mode or something).
☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆
Now back to the good points!
Did I mention you can Customize the look of your Wanzer?! :D Not by a lot doh.. A nice touch if I do say so myself.
Did I mention that you feel like you’re in an actually 60-Feet Suit of Metal and Armor? You can actively Crush things beneath your feet! (Sure there’s isn’t much to even step on…) But still! The fact that you have only a few destructible debris is so trilling! (Although I’m srlly peeved at how I’m able to Crush Cars when I walk over them but my 16”Caliber Guns can’t leave a dent… oh well #2010problems)
The Intro and Final Cutscenes were just really Cool in the perspective of a Mecha Anime Watcher. The Orbital Tower Defense Laser was really awesome to watch. The Big weapon that took it down was also really cool to see (despite we never being able to see it again later). While the ending thing really reminded me of the one scene from Gundam Seed (Destiny?). Quite Touching, really. Cue Kimi Wa Boku Ni Niteiru.
So although you don’t quite feel like Jesus Yamato from the Gundam Seed Series.
I did quite feel like Suzaku Kururugi from Code Geass (Season One) with the excellent Mobility of the Knightmare Frames.
☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆
Conclusion:
Mecha Fans will really like this. But to fully understand the Gameplay, you need to play Smart and keep your Cool.

I actually like the game, those who are complaining about it basically being a high-graphics, robotic beat-em-up are right...and its great :D.
I'm not really sure what everyone was expecting, but the controls work smoothly, weapon options with the DLC (even the base weapons were pretty dynamic) allow you to spec your Wanzer easily to your play style.
Personally, I'm having fun with it.

This game is so generic it should come in boxes of 48 at Costco. Never before has a game made me feel so much like "yes, this is a video game that exists." pretty barebones gameplay meets shallow customization, and a plot pieced together from the tvtrope giant robot page. This is where I would usually recommend a fair price for a game, but I got my copy of FMe for free and feel like I was still ripped off.

ok here is a very simply review in bullet point form my opinion i LOVED IT mainly because i love mechs i love robots i love transformers i loved this game

and these score only apply when the game and dlc are on discount for at least 15$s

*the story:
The story is ok and is engaging the characters are ok and nice the voice acting is ok : over all the whole story is a 7/10

*cut scenes:
They are bad ♥♥♥ and awesome I loved them I rate them 10/10



*the gameplay:*

Missions: the missions are fun and kool to play with a good amount of verity in 3 parts on rail shooter with the mechs in a transport aircraft, 3rd person shooter part, and a course the mechs game play I rate it the game play a 7/10

Bosses: bosses get progressively harder in huge steps *from the first boss battle* with the last two being insanely hard it is recommended *by me* to play this game on lowest difficulty setting because of this they get a rating of 5/10 very unforgiving ***ALLMOST LIKE dark souls***

conclusion if you are a fan of shooters, robot, mecha, customizing, transformers esk robots, space and syfy in general this is the game for you and it gets a solid 7/10 from me only is on for at least 15$s if any higher the rating drops

TLDR; A excruciatingly mediocre game.

The gameplay starts off bad, piloting/designing a mech is extremely basic, the combat is dull and the AI presents no challenge what so ever. After playing the first two levels you will have seen all of what the game has to offer. It only gets worse from there though with a poor attempt at "variety". Turret sections and then still worse is on foot sections that feel like what i'd expect out of a mobile game from 5 years ago.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=637472065

If you stick with it what you're in for is a cliched story, poor music, graphics, voice acting and absolute crap level design.

Only square enix could think it would be a good idea to put all its marbles on expanding the franchise by turning the series known for its turn based strategy elements/depth into a shallow outsourced one off failure of a action game that desperately tries to appeal to a western audience.

This is one of the worst handled franchises by square enix, even though most of the games never came to the west they ended up being fan translated. FM: Gun Hazard (snes) spinoff from 20 years ago offers far more compelling story/gameplay/mech building then this game does.

Only reason i even powered through this is because i had a morbid curiosity of seeing how bad this abomination was and what killed off front mission for good. It wasn't worth it.

I am a big fan of the Front Mission series, however this game takes the Front Mission setting and makes a game that is... basically worse than the Front Mission strategy gameplay in all aspects. It should really be called "Front Mission Devolved".

Youd think that they would put in some effort to justify switching Front Mission to a third person shooter, but it just feels like a cheaply made game.

The plot is laughable - the voice acting is very uneven (a lot of the characters are emotionless when they should show emotion, and ALL the emotional scenes fall completely flat) and it is just poorly written and generic. A major theme of the game is the incredible power of the "EDGE System" which supposedly makes you into a superhuman mech piloting machine, but gameplay wise EDGE is pretty terrible. It only slows down enemies slightly for a few seconds and I hardly used it at all. The one badass female character turns into an emotional wreck halfway through the game just from seeing someone who scares her. The main character is as boring as you can get, with no real motivation besides "revenge!" And the villains have massive plot armor, even after you fight them in a half hour boss battle their wanzers don't get a scratch.

The game's very hard to control with a controller so I would suggest using mouse and keyboard - ESPECIALLY in the (boring) on foot segments which will always crash if you use a controller. Even then however, the animations feel pretty stiff during combat. The on foot sections feel tacked on and even more like an attempt to make the game appeal to "westerners".

The graphics are also pretty poor. Even for the time they came out they were dated. The graphics look like a launch Xbox 360 game from 2006.

The music is of course generic without any of the incredible tracks such as the ones Yoko Shimomura made for the original Front Mission. While it's not horrible, it's also pretty forgettable.

All in all it would have been better if they just ported Front Mission 4 or 5 to Steam (and probably made more money too). The Front Mission series was merely the victim of executive meddling thinking a shooter would appeal more to Westerners. That may be the case but it certainly didn't result in a better game, even as far as third person shooters go.

If you actually bother (don't) to make it to the end of this game (don't) and watch the shockingly long credit sequence (don't), you'll see several Quality Assurance teams listed from around the globe.

Take Armored Core and the Xbox MechAssault games, throw them in a blender, then pull down your shorts and squeeze out some chunky diarrhea to top it all off, blend for 60 seconds, garnish with pubic hairs, and you have this game.

In case that was somehow unclear, I am not recommending this game.

Download PCSX2 and grab a Front Mission 5 rom + the fan translation patch instead, then laugh maniacally at all the money Square Enix has literally thrown away over the years by not localizing their *good* titles in English, thereby forcing fans to pirate roms to use translation patches instead.

Fun acting, driving a mech is fun, for whatever reason this game didn't resonate with me. I've never been the mech-driving kind of gamer. I got this in a bundle. But if you like this sort of thing, give it a try.

Summary:
Front Mission Evolved is a third-person mech action game published by Square Enix. Overall it's something I'd expect from perfectly average game. Graphics and sounds are ok, whole action part is just about shooting and punching tanks and big mechs while controlling a big mech (except the on-foot parts). It's not a bad game but it doesn't deserve a recommendation at all as there are so many better games in TPS action genre.

Pros:
- Average gameplay. Don't expect something to get really excited at, just shoot or punch everything and try to enjoy it as much as you can.
- Modify your mech. More assault rifles, more rocket launchers,... or just a better design, spray mechs like your cars in Need for Speed style! Or if you just don't want to customize your mech, you can select a premade one.
- Steam achievements.

Cons:
- Partners' AI. Don't expect much help from them, enemies will even focus on you anytime. They don't die, they don't help. They want to watch and make you feel like you are not alone.
- Story. Just expect cringeworthy and really uninteresting story, this game is based on action.
- Dead multiplayer.
- Linear campaign progress. That wouldn't be bad if it wasn't so obvious. You just see that's always "beat those enemies to move to another sector".
- Average gameplay. You can spend your money better, buy this only if you are really bored and there's nothing better on sale.

I just finished the single player campaign and came away pretty dissappointed.

1. The story is the most cliche'd nonsense conceived. Things happen, no real believable development and it sounds like an 80s cartoon with so much focus on the gameplay gimmick, all wrapped up in your standard pretentious references. The acting is bad, but ....given what's there.. can't be expected to be better.

2. Given it's essentially Armored Core lite, you would think they would stick with the gameplay in the former series, but nope.. not a chance. The part selection is rather shallow, the AI is somehow dumber than in the former series, your partners aren't good for anything and the most serious fault is the on foot sections. Why include the onfoot sections? They are an interesting idea, but the execution is like an afterthought. The control/feel for the on foot section is really bad. You could call the overall mech game weak, but the onfoot sections are terrible. At least the aiming in the mech sections is forgiveable.

3. The sound effects in this game is straight out of Transformers the movie. It is terrible, nonsensicle and has such a presence that I was annoyed from start to finish. The music is generic "epic" and forgettable.

4. I played through the campaign and resolved to uninstall it right away, so I have not tried the multiplayer. The mech sections were not that compelling, so I don't think whatever community happens to be there would be worth my time.

While this game was a bit of an experiment that didn't really work out as far as the series went, it's still a fun, stompy 'mech game. The gun types are varied enough that you have a selection of how you want to fight, the customization is pretty solid, and the graphics aren't bad, considering it's a 5+ year old game. Plus, there's still some people playing multiplayer.

The story for the single player game is more or less ignorable...but you will never find a more Gundam storyline than this game. Not even Gundam is as Gundam as this game. It blows right past the point where the mecha anime genre cliches are annoying to the point where they're so damned hilarious you can't help but chuckle to yourself. Take a shot every time you spot one. Or not. That way lies alcohol poisoning.

I used to love Front Mission, when it was a tactical RPG. Now, it's just a simple shooter.
Even if it's still a good game, it's not a real Front Mission for me.
If you've never experienced the "real" Front Mission, it's OK.
But if you know what the Front Mission games are, you'll scream !

I'm an avid Front Mission fan and I knew before playing that this game was bad, but I had hope that it wasn't as bad as it was made out to be, but wow, just wow.

TL;DR
Believe every negative review about this game, it's bad. Don't buy if you liked old FM.

Pros
- The wanzers for all they're worth are really nicely rendered.

Cons
Bugs
- Crashes, a lot. It's 2015 (at the time of the review) the game was created in 2010 and it still crashes because they didn't bother to fix its bugs forcing you to replay missions especially on foot sections.

Story
- The story is bottom barrel garbage. It's like an extremely incoherent version of the worst Gundam story mixed with a poor interpretation of Front Mission: Gunhazard's story mixed with a heavily Americanised story akin to modern FPS at the time. Instead of crafting a compelling side story in the universe of Front Mission we've come to know, we get the "it's a reboot" trope with everything starting in New York like in the movies, I'll let that sink in. It has no saving grace.

Sound and Audio
- The sound and audio are mediocre at best nothing stands out. The game's score has that Hollywood feel which you'll recognise from the start screen and is extremely generic and lacklustre. It doesn't have the inventive score capacity displayed in the prior entries.

Weapons
- Wanzer weapons feel so underpowered, either that or the enemies are enormous bullet sponges.

Customisation
- Customisation is garbage whether you're an old Front Mission fan or a newcomer. You earn money in levels to buy parts to customise your wanzer so it should be great and a saving grace right, wrong. Before buying parts you'd normally select the parts, see how it looks on your wanzer then look at its stats against what's currently equipped. Well you can see the stats but you don't get a preview of the part, all you get is a picture with poor resolution under the stats. So if you want to view it on you wanzer you'll have to waste money purchasing it and once you buy it there's no way to re-equip your previously equipped part unless you repurchase it...I'll let that sink in as well.
- You can now paint each part(limb) separately, it sounds nice until you realise how much of a hassle it is. Each part can be coloured differently via a colour picker however it's rather fiddly and doesn't remember colours when you want to recolour other parts so if you want to use the same shade of a colour throughout your wanzer good luck remembering and finding the colour.

AI
- Why do you even have companion AI partners if they're going to be utterly useless? Your partners basically do nothing throughout the game. Sure they can shoot the enemies but what's the point if they do no damage and I mean no damage at all. Here's an example, missiles do a decent amount of damage, 4 missiles can reduce basic enemy health by a 1/4 however when one of your partner fire their missiles full barrage of 4 the enemies take no damage...I kid you not. I stood behind a building (so that the enemy wouldn't agro on me) in amazement as my partner fired barrage after barrage and watched its health and it stayed at full health regardless.
- Enemy AI is even worse than your partner's and I'm not taking in a dumb kind of way, I mean in an unfair kind of way. If there's a fire fight between your partners and enemies, the enemy AI's aim is potato but once you get into the picture their aim goes to pin-point laser assisted. Also they become affixed on you no matter what, disregarding your partners altogether.

On Foot Sections
- The on foot sections are so generic, under developed and buggy I wonder as to why they were even included. When you dismount you're equipped with an assault rifle and a rocket launcher which can take down enemy wanzer with 4 shots Now you might be saying "4 shots that seems overpowered" and it is considering it takes 16 missiles while in wanzer to destroy basic enemy wanzer. Before anyone says "But, you could've dismount in FM3 and Gun Hazard" while true once you'd dismount you either had to run for your life or find an unpiloted wanzer as you're squishy and only eqipped with a pistol which did 1 point of damage. If it takes 4 rockets to take down a wanzer what's the point of being in wanzers to begin with.

Out of place Wanzer Designs
- The wanzers designed specifically for this game do not match the current long standing design the series has or is known for and come off as being out of place when compared. What you get is some more akin to concept sketch or anime with unnecessary sharp edges, curves and skulls as opposed to the rectanglular or circular constructs.

Verdict
You know you're in for a rough ride from the beginning cutscene where they pronounce wanzer as wanzer instead of vanzer. I tried to like it but it's a terrible game with or without the FM series applied biases. It brings nothing new to the table while poorly accomplishing everything which existed prior. Everything about this game is a let down, from the incoherent story, poor customisation, forced game sections, on foot sections, generic audio offerings and unlikeable characters. Square-Enix should've had more confidence in itself and released a turn-based tactics game with the improvements which FM5 made as that was the most perfect version to date.
Can I recommend this game to long-time FM fans who may think "that it's not that bad, right?", no. Can I recommend this game to mech fans hoping for a new game to play, no. This game has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. If you're looking for a FM game to play do yourself a favour and play FM:Gun Harzard, FM3, FM4 or FM5 instead.

Alright, let's talk about a game I bought because it was cheap and I based only on the screenshots. NOTE: I never played a front mission game before, I know its more of a strategy game but I am basing it off what I was presented with ingame.

Gameplay: The combat in my opinion is VERY satisfying, explosions are loud, your enemys explode violently and their husks ragdoll to the ground. You can dismember enemies to weaken them or just shoot the center mass to kill them outright. I am pretty sure when you dismember them you weaken their overall armor but I only noticed this with the boss fights. Combat is pretty tough, I died 22 times throughout the campaign on normal You can also skate around like every japanese mech game ever which is basically when you slide around using jets and somehow not scraping up your mech's feet. Combat is somewhat on the faster pace with the skating with you and enemies and the general low health of both parties. Also the game does a good job making it feel like you are controlling a mech, with your mech stomping around when you are not skating and the screen shaking (not the bad shaking where aim is crap, the good shaking where your crosshair does not move) Most of the guns feel powerful aswell. Customization is fun and not that restrictive. You make a 'Wanzer' (from the German word "wanderpanzer"; wander for "walking, and panzer for "armor") using differant arms, legs, torsos, weapons and backpacks. I must admit I am disappointed at the lack of digitigrade legs and tank treads, but their is plenty of parts to choose from.

Graphics: The graphics are nice, characters look like humans and the mechs look like mechs. Cities are detailed and blah blah its a game from the modern age all games look amazing nowadays. Enemies can lose limbs (well you blow off the armor to reveal the inner workings, which looks cool as hell)

Sound: The sound is good, the guns sound cool and explosions are loud. The voice acting sounds a bit weird at some points of the game, but its not that bad.

Story: Alright time for the story, you play as Dylan Ramsey as an engineer working to make wanzer prototypes and while going on a test run, some major sh!t goes down in New York. Time to head into battle with little thought! You mainly are looking for your father but its kinda dangerous because enemy wanzers, troops and tanks want you very dead. That's about as far as I will go with story because I don't wanna ruin it. The story was not the best in my opion but it kept me intrested all the way through, course it has everything from violance to romance (lots of ♥♥♥♥ blocking, may I add. (why is that word blocked? What if I use it in a non vulgar way such as setting up a gun for firing?)) I also will add that the bosses are puss!es and run away alot, BUT when you do kill them its sastifying.

Conclusion: I went in with low expectations, but I was pleased. The game is fun and I played all the way through in one go. The game is 6 (My profile says 5.9 so I am rounding) hours long, this includes retries from death. I do have a complaint for the story, difficulty spikes and some cliche crap here and there, but I had fun, that's all that matters, right? I never played Front Mission before and I know this game is very differant from all the others as the others are turn based strategy and this is a thirst person shooter. I can see how fans of the series can be disappointed but I say, atleast give this game a chance. I give it an 8/10.

I played the previous Front Mission games and they were brilliant! none of them failed to entertain me. However I can see they've tried something new, a real time action game. Being a fan of the previous series, I bought this game. It's an okay game, but its very repetitive and gets boring. The graphics aren't the best either and the weapons variety is very low. Weapons look the same... and I was looking forward to the FV-24B vulcan from the previous games. I did not see it unfortunately :(. Ah wells... I can see they're trying a new thing, but it hasn't gone well and the Front Mission series has officially been announced. Over.

Well, this game turned out to be a disappointment.

I bought it remembering the amazing experience I had with Front Mission III on the original PlayStation. Sadly, this can hardly be compared, let alone even be called a FM game. While FM III was a turn strategy RPG, FM Evolved is a third-person shooter - a rather huge step away from the franchhise's original concept. However, this alone would not bother me that much, provided that the game was enjoyable. Sadly, this was not the case. Here's a list of 10 things that in my opinion make this game a failure:

1. Generic plot - insert "save the world" template here and supplement it with a handful of overused cliches.
2. Boring characters - a yet another bunch of two-dimensional cliches you couldn't care less about.
3. Unconvincing voice acting - there is more emotion in the sound of a flushing toilet than in the voices you hear in this game.
4. Failed customization - even though there is a variety of wanzer models and parts to choose from, the default model is so OP in comparison that you will always go for it.
5. Annoying enemy AI - this game should be called "Dylan must die" because every single enemy is hellbound on targeting you. It doesn't matter how many allies you have in the mission or how much closer they are to the enemy than you - every single hostile unit will aim and shoot at you regardless of the distance or circumstances.
6. Failed role system - because of the enemy AI, you basically cannot play as anything other than mid-to-short range brawler. Wanted to play as a sniper? Forget it - the enemy will never leave you alone, regardless of the difficulty level.
7. Annoying bosses - fighting bosses is almost entirely luck-dependent as most of them have one or two ridiculous attacks that you can either hardly avoid and/or survive.
8. Failed ally AI - your allies are useless. Completely and always.
9. Human mode glitches - when running around as a human, prepare for some uncooperative controls and random kicks to Windows.
10. Lack of a save option - the biggest failure this game has to offer. You simply cannot save by yourself and are subject to the mercy of the autosave and elusive check points. You will have to replay a lot when the game kicks you out to Win, and trust you me that it freakin' will.

Not worth your time.

FME is a great game. The single player is great, BUT the multiplayer? If you are getting this game for multiplayer prepare to face... nobody. if you want to play with your friends tell them and then you can play a LAN game, but other than that, it's empty. Even though the game has no multiplayer it is a great single player experience. Thank you, and i hope this review was helpful!

This game is abyssmal. The only reason why I finished was because I put money in it and I didn't want it to be wasted. With that said let's get to the trial. Where to begin; it's boring, I just wanted to quit halfway through the game, but you know, money spent, and with that said lets get down to the boring aspects. My biggest gripe is the weapon system, a single gun alone is underpowered, I went into battle weilding two, in addition Front Mission Evolved puts an emphasis on shooting body parts, such destroyed body parts leave the enemy at a disadvantage, which really doesn't matter because you blow them apart seconds later for the effect to be relevant.

The gameplay is very linear, the game won't let you play certain missions unless you have a sniper rifle, kind of legs or something or other. The controls are also pretty clunky, mouse movement is fine but the controls on your keyboard are a different story.

Speaking of which, you get a relatively small variety of weapons, rifles, SMG's, swords, sniper rifles, shotguns, and shields (why the ♥♥♥♥ are these here?), but you also get should mounted weaponry, which are pretty nice, mainly missile launchers, rockets, miniguns. These help out a lot, because as I cannot stress enough, your guns are pretty weak. Not to mention the sniper rifle is useless in boss fights and around the end of the game. The guns also have an overheat system, as do the shoulder weaponry, pretty annoying, like the SKATE's recharge. However you can also utilize just a sword and shield if you want a swordsman style gameplay but I'll touch upon that later.

Then comes along the movement system, walking is mind numbingly slow, as such the only way to get around is to use the SKATE System, and the disadvantages mean life or death in some cases, burning out the entire charge for SKATE forces you wait 8 seconds for a recharge (or less depending on customization), a lot of stuff can go down in the time, especially near the end of the game, and that's time nobody has either! You also get the EDGE system, time slows down, you become invulnerable and deal out godly amounts of damage, the EDGE system is recharged through fighting.

The enemies are all cookie cutter-type enemies, they pose no challenge, little threat, their just...there pretty much, yet they remain durable enough for me to need two guns, at times a new type will be introduced but really it's just the same thing with a different gun or body type. This all makes the combat and gameplay repetitive, as the only things getting changed up don't make an impact, and there are no enemies that try something dramatic or pull a twist., it's 5 types, they're all fodder. There's also bosses, and around the end you fight 4 you met earlier and you fight them alone, pretty darn difficult, only interesting moment really.

The story, CLICHES GALORE and it's dull and typical like a lot of things Hollywood pumps out. Unknown bad guy decides to be a terrorist and destroys space elevators to make a statement about the world, and the young perky engineer guy (protagonist) must rise and stop him. No plot twists, it's just...bland. Which brings me to the characters! Oh boy are you in for a treat! One dimensional! The characters don't change, they don't adopt new viewpoints, get different outlooks on life, you know the symptoms, voice acting is fine, but the catchphrases are a pain. Hope you like cutscenes, you'll get endless amounts to progress the story.

With that said lets get down to the maps, LINEAR ON-RAILS SHOOTER HO! Summarized it, you're forced down a path with the same enemies (stated earlier) all to get to something. With occassional breaks into large areas to move around and fight enemies, bosses, only to be shoved down the same forward path again. But it's got collectables laden along the way, a ♥♥♥♥ton, have fun finding 20 sensor nodes in nooks, crannies, you name it. However there are three emblems per level, these unlock decals and emblems for your mech, basically the only collectables that matter.

Now from time to time, you won't be fighting in a mech you'll sometimes be on foot in third person, and the weapons selection is small, rifle, rocket launcher, shotgun, grenades, and the enemies this time around are just as cookie cutter! The on-foot segments are a change of pace, but they don't break the monotony, as it all delves back into the same formula as when driving a mech. Same goes for gunship landing segments, however, I did find those a bit fun, mainly because I got guns that were actually powerful, but it all boils down to 'circle area, and land.'

Are we done? Nope! Remember when I mentioned that bit about swordsman style, well were getting into customization! Now to the games credit, customization is pretty nice (of course, they posted it all over the videos and pics). You get to compare weapons, body types (this is the armor), backpacks, legs and arms, and really you can customize to some pretty big lengths. There are three types of legs, bi-pedal, multi-leg, and hover, their all just about the same though as what really matters is the skate system, but multi-leg does let you carry more heavier weaponry while hover gives you more manuvering. You can change up your weapons to become like, a dual sword weilding person, a heavy sniper, or just do what I did and fit as much OP stuff on as possible.

Backpacks give you all kinds of benefits, more energy for SKATE, anti-missile systems, more power for carrying heavier weaponry, faster recharge, movement and such, and the game won't force you to use a certain kind of backpack for missions. And while were on customization, you can choose decals, colors, you know the jist.

But the biggest incriminating factor about this game is the fact it has multiplayer, BUT NO ONE PLAYS IT, it's dead. makes the DLC pretty useless, along with the customization and decals mentioned earlier. Also to addon is that the end of the game, the final part, is very unforgiving.
All this combines to make little to no-replayability.
The designs and looks of the mechs are pretty nice though, that's the only redeeming factor.

TL;DR: Front Mission Evolved is boring, linear, on-rails, and it's a massive time sink for such boredom, multiplayer is non-existant, the story is dry and flat, and it's all stuffed behind pretty graphics. Don't buy it. It's not worth anything.

"SQUARE ENIX AND KONAMI HAD A CHILD APPARENTLY!"

FRONT MISSION EVOLVED; is a third person mech shooter attached with occasional third person shooter, mowing down other mechs called Wanzers, tanks and human soldiers. (SPOILER BELOW)

Story 5/10: Nothing significant or different from any other giant mech stories(anime to be precise). Basically you, son of the E.D.G.E system's creator (it's a special wanzer engagement system) have to save the world from a terrorist threat and an A.I that is...... it's basically Eagle Eye, MGS4, Terminator all over again......but it's with rideable wanzers... I guess that's a sell....
oh yeah and you'll have a relationship with a girl who has PTSD so that's a plus.

Mechanics 6/10: The controls are easy enough to comprehend......and perhaps its too simple
There are two parts of this game which are; The mech battles and the third person shooter combats.
You can upgrade your wanzers by customize four parts which are: head, right and left arms, and the legs.
You also can costumize the colors of your wanzer extensively. This includes; The color, camo pattern, decal and the glossiness of your wanzers.
Your wanzers also can be equipped with melee weapons and shields for close-quarter encounter, standard firearms (rifles, shotgun etc...), extra guns/missile batteries mounted on both of the wanzer's shoulders and a backpack as a passive aids in battle. Each of those weapons and parts can equipped with skills cards (of some sort) to enhance your arsenal's ability like explosive ammunition and so on (though they are pretty limited. The E.D.G.E system is basically the Devil Trigger so okay.
The third person part is pretty simple; you got your rifle, shotgun, rocket launcher and grenade at your disposal but no personal collection of your own weapons so no customization here.

Gameplay 6/10: Most of the time you'll be killing wanzers or blow stuff up either as a wanzer yourself or occasionally, a turret section from a carrier. The boss battles aren't as varied as most of them just behave like any other wanzer, just more aggressive and equipped with better weapons. Though there are two boss battles that is actually fun to fight which are the mobile fortress and the AI Core in the final boss battle.

The game is relatively okay, no part of the game is broken or glitched
The gameplay is bearable but a bit too simple
The graphics is pretty nice
If you're a mech lover, this might interest you
If you're not, skipping it wont hurt anyone
6/10

If you ever played any of the Front Mission series before or if you are a fan of the Armored Core Series then you will enjoy Front Misssion Evolved.

The movement, mech customizing and game experience is very much like the Armored Core series putting you in the action, allowing you to boost, skate, hover, use melee, fire weapons from your left and right hands and your left and right shoulders.

You can buy and equip upgrades to your mech, allowing you to change the arms, legs, torso, left and right hand weapons, left and right shoulder weapons and your backpack.You can even customize the appearance of your mech. You will also find a nice assortment of weapon upgrades to equip; light machine guns, medium machine guns, shotguns, shields, melee weapons, gatling guns, bazookas, grenade launchers, rocket launchers, missile launchers and more.

So really, if you are a fan of any mech style game then you will enjoy Front Mission Evolved.

This is definitely a game worth adding to your Steam library. :)

It is incredibly hard to explain how bad this game is unless a) you've played it or b) you know the level of "quality" Double Helix Studios are known for.

The game is a plodding disaster that takes the worst ideas of the Front Mission franchise (which is usually a turn-based strategy RPG...), and adds in ones that it avoided for ages (weapon overheat mechanics, limited ammunition, on-foot cover shooter segments). There are ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s of collectables, which is how you both gain new skills (hint: these are very handy) and cash (which is also handy, even though the cash system in this game is kind of a trainwreck?).

Do you want to track down, and this is not a joke, an average of 23+ items PER LEVEL? Some in on-rails shooter sections, some that you have to find in boss fights or arenas before your targets die and you're forced onward? Or enemies who will stunlock you while AI companions break randomly? Don't forget how slow you move in overly-large levels, or the wait-for-a-recharge special attack mode you'll basically require in most fights to speed them up.

The biggest sin of all, though, is that the game is BORING. HIDEOUSLY DULL. I could totally get into this as a mindless action game but it has cutscenes that go on FOREVERRRRRRR and takes itself deathly serious and none of it's worth a ♥♥♥♥ while the same 5 enemy types fight you all game and nothing ever breaks the monotony up. There was a single interesting boss fight. It was a 4-on-1 fight against an entire merc company and in the end everyone had TOO MUCH HP to make it anything but a slog. That's the highlight! That's the peak of the game!

Do not buy for any price, do not play, avoid at all costs.

Front Mission Evolved. Not the best title I've seen in most mech shooters but I will tell you this before I start dropping bombs of disappointment; for a long time I watched a lot of Gundam and I technically count as still a fan. I will however admit the characters in that show were so lifeless, or just uncreative, no offense to any fans of the franchise but let's be honest. Romance in an all out mech war? I'm not a big anime fan, but come on let's get some armor crunching and guns blazing going on here!

Now before I go on a rant off this topic let's get down to the story, you're probably thinking "Wow! this game has giant mechs tearing into each other and blowing ♥♥♥♥ up like crazy! EPIC!!!" well unfortunately no.

Like in Gundam the characters are either hot headed dumb asses that rush into battle without any plan as to what in the hell they're doing. Or they're negative, boring, cold, and just unreconizable. I hate it when characters are just badly scripted or written out to be this "mysterious badass" it's not like I don't like those characters it just depends on how well you can write a good character to be that way.

The plot: not much to it really, in fact none of it is really that important or interesting in the least. But for players who don't want it spoiled: basically what happens is humanity builds continent sized space stations that have the occasional boarder lands battle or two, nothing too serious just humans being humans. So they replaced the military with giant mechs named "wanzers" yeah I know it's a stupid name to call a mech if anything it sounds like a lot like Robin "jee wowzers Batman!"

However a random terrorist group attacks New York and later completely destroys it. You then play as some stupid kid that constantly rushes into fights without a second thought named Dylan.

So Dylan later finds out his father has been assumed killed in the assault on New York he then vows he will strike a blow for vengeance on the terrorists that murdered his father. And what better way is there to claim revenge? he of course joins up with the army! actually they walked up to him and just said "hey kid, wanna join the military?" because that's how recruitment works... he then blows everyone in his path to kingdom come!

You will later fight different mentally disabled bosses along the way and eventually when progressing in the game Dylan will get involved in the most awkward randomist romance I've ever seen in a game. Yeah I don't know who was writing this thing but obviously he/she did not watch Gundam wing or Gundam X.

Seriously! a cookie cutter romance in a 3rd person mech shooter? if it was a 3rd person mech shooting RPG then I might give it a pass. But shooters and romance don't normally mix very well together, like Halo 4 for example, however that had more "awwww" moments like Mass Effect but also had "why the hell is this in my first person shooter Halo game?!" moments.

In the end Dylan just randomly decides his Pheromones were stronger than his logic and hooks up with that ♥♥♥♥♥ that constantly yells at you to do stuff in the start of the game, whether you like her or not, you're stuck with her! and to those who have played Mass Effect imagine it like Miranda was the ONLY romance option in the entire game....Yeah, no thanks...

Multiplayer: it's not "perfect" but it's a hell of a lot of fun to play, when you get decent gear and weapons of course it's more fun than the crappy campaign they gave us I'll tell you that much. However due to the lack of people playing the game finding a match is like digging in your back yard for hours looking for dinosaur bones and no, you are not in China so your chances of finding at least a Tooth is slim to damn nill.

But if you can convince your friends or your girl friend to play this game you won't regret blowing off some steam in a giant mech twice the size of my Kia.

Now for character customization. Yes there are tons of parts to use but they can only be unlocked through multiplayer or story mode. And since barely anyone has a match up you will not be getting the parts you want unless you open up a group on steam or you get people you know to play it. Either one is challenging so pick your poison. Also one of the problems with gear in this game is; you can't cross campaign mode character progress such as armor and weapons to multiplayer. This of course results in newer players being nothing more but cannon fodder until you farm for better parts within ranked multiplayer matches.

Final verdict: this game get's a solid 6/10, it could have been a 7 or 8 if the story was at least half decent but that's my opinion on the game. Now does it belong in your library? that's your choice to decide. But I suggest getting this game while on sale before thinking too heavily on it.

I however only suggest it to any loyal mech fans like me but only as a last ditch choice if you don't like Hawken or any other Mech shooter out there. Because trust me, this game is not a "MUST HAVE!" it's a cheap game you can look at if you are completely out of games to play or a game you might seriously consider getting. but it is not an epic mech shooter like a Gundam game would be like so don't expect some awesome showdown like Gundam had becuase most of the time the bosses are a pain in the ♥♥♥ and feel like a chore fighting.

So until a decent Gundam related mech shooter is released or better yet a Gundam game entirely I suggest this game to mech fans out there, but again only as a last resort!
