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.

Great game for those who have tried Armored Core, Macross vfx/SDF-1, Hawken, Titanfall.
I'd love to see more people playing this game... It's great. I have played the entire series from the start. Front Mission 3 being my favorite.

Imagine the Stryder titan from titanfall on Steroids. That's what you get here.

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.

This game is just like any other old fasioned single player game. If you have played the older games, Front Mission 3 ,4 and ect then you probably will think this is odd. It's not turn base any more. They've created it to be more of a 3rd person shootem up. It's a little sad but what can you do? It's still pretty fun and pretty hard. I enjoyed it.

FME is a fairly short third person Mech Shooter. This is a game that doesn't do anything particularly bad, combat's okay, story is fairly cookie cutter (only YOU can save the whole word!) and flying around in a mech is fun enough. However the game doesn't really do any good or great either.

There is a decent bit of Mech customization, from paint jobs and decals to various weapons and parts. However you probably won't use or try a lot of those customizations out as the main campaign is very short (I beat the whole thing in about 8 hours) and there really isn't a whole lot of replayability.

Pick it up on sale and enjoy a decent enough Mech Shooter.

Great game. It only requires more players for online mode. I've gathered 2 new players. As long we have more people to play with, this game is fantastic. Last stand does have a major bug however, besides that everything is dandy.

*A mech-lover's Spoiler-free Review

If you have been wondering how does it feel to ride a Wanzer that you have been commanding in previous games, this game puts you in the helm of Wanzer combat at its finest!!!!

To those new to the series, this is a very good mech game (if you can get over with some of its issues).

Pros:

*Fast Paced-Mecha combat
*Stays faithful to the essence of Wanzer customization in the previous games
*Graphics are stunning
*Punching a Wanzer never felt so satisfying
*So many customization combinations!!!!

Cons:

*Voice acting is kinda lifeless, sometimes their inflections are out of place
*No one plays multiplayer....

Tiny rants:

*Story mode characters are interesting, but they are not expanded upon, they dont even introduce themselves right.

*Your loadout in the cutscenes do not reflect your actual loadout...

*The choosing a prebuilt model overwrites your Wanzer's style (Color, Decals, etc.)

*Sniper Rifle Controls are weird, takes time getting used to...

*Some weapons cannot be placed in the left hand (WHY? In old Front Mission games you can freely use any hand weapon in any hand.)

*Regenerating Health (It doesnt make sense... I hoped the game would explain it but no.... Game developers, please stop using this weird mechanic... it removes realism from the game...)

*You dont get rewards for destroying individual parts (Lets say, if you destroy a left arm in past Front Mission Games, that arm is gone, here, the broken arm is still a major threat even when you consider the Accuracy loss)

*Some equipment are useless...

*Melee damage can no longer be amplified by spare power... Unlike in previous games...bummer...

*E.D.G.E. System only lasts for a few seconds and strangely enough, it hampers the pace of action... Why put it? O.o

Overall, its an 8/10!!!!

Its a great game!!!! Though there times it feels unpolished, still it stands as a great game!!!!

Crash-happy during on-foot sections. You have to pixel-hunt for destroyable objects to get enough money to buy neat mech parts. The combat and gameplay aren't very compelling. Multiplayer's dead as a doornail. Google Gearhead or MAV or something else if you're looking for a mech game.

Right, will get to the bare bones stuff of this game with the pros, cons and misc

Pros:
-Nice artwork
-Decent looking mecha
-An okay Customisation for the mechas
-Not to bad controls for a multi platform game

Cons:
-Crappy dubs (All the people sound like they don't believe in what they're doing)
-Overused, uninspired scenario
-Graphics aren't that good
-Bosses are boring and uninspired
-Combat is just sloppy
-Too short, I finished the campaign in just 5 hours
-Silly unbelievable love story
-The characterised bad guys are lame, so lame that they look, sound and feel like Saturday Morning cartoon bad guys
-On foot phases are sloppy
-Quite bland ambience

Misc:
-Sometimes the terrible dubs made me laugh quite hard
-Screw phisics
-Doesn't feel like a real war situation
-Crickey!

Notes: I do not recommend this game at all to anyone, it is a waste of money, a waste of time and a waist of patience... For those Front Mission vets like me, it is definitively a waste of time, this is why I dislike Square Enix, this isn't the first franchise they butchered, it won't be the last.

Front Mission Evolved è un gioco sparatutto in terza persona, più che buono, specialmente se si va a guardare il rapporto qualità prezzo.
Ambientato in un futuro dove le grandi potenze mondiali si dividono il territorio, difendendo i propri confini, schierando robot di ultima generazione pesantemente armati...i Wanzer.
Non c'è da aspettarsi un capolavoro ma per gli appassionati del genere e non, sono assicurate ore di divertimento. Tra i pregi troviamo:
  • Buona grafica;
  • Ottimo gameplay;
  • Ottima personalizzazione. Infatti nel corso della storia sarà possibile equipaggiare il proprio Wanzer con differenti armi e armature in base ai vostri gusti, al vostro stile di gioco o alla specifica missione;
  • Ricco di missioni secondarie nascoste;
  • Storia.
Tra i difetti (pochi a mio parere) troviamo:
  • Multiplayer (poichè purtroppo non più godibile per assenza di giocatori, essendo un gioco datato);
  • A tratti ripetitivo, ma non influisce sulla giocabilità del titolo.
Tirando le somme è un titolo da provare che difficilmente deluderà i propri utenti.

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 !

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!

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.

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.

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. :)

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!
