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