I absolutely love this game. When I was a teenager my parents bought this for me on xbox 360 and I was blown away. When I saw it was on sale I had to get it. It's just as great as I remember it! I connected my xbox controller to my pc and I'm settling nicely in full nostalgic immersion.

One of my favorite games that came from Japan and one of my favorite stories in pc gaming. I've played this since its release year and it always makes want to adventure into unknown places and test my skills with the largest of Alien monstrositys I've ever faced. The graphics are decent, the combat is amazing, and the weapons plus mechs, aka VS's (Vital Suits) dominate all with awsome gameplay and action that takes you into things that blow your mind. I recommend this game for it's weapons and mounts mostly, but try it for yourselfs, see how you like it and let me know what you think.

A terrible game with peculiar fans.

If you enjoy:

-Slow movement
-Slow interaction
-2 weapons only
-Slow climbing
-Every action being cancelled by all hits in the game, specially the cluncky grappling system.
-Bad guns sound effect with no good feeling.
-Thermal system that tiks down like a ♥♥♥♥er (at least on hard), which will end you with so much Thermal thing that you are god and you don´t give a ♥♥♥♥ or with an irritating clock of death while you are stunlocked.
-Stunlock, perma-stun, etc. You will be Stuned so many times by so many AoE attacks (missiles, rocks,whatever) that is not even funny.
-Smoke, so much smoke/snow particles that you wont see a thing, almost all the time, but don´t worry, tha tAI will see you.
-Bad AI, bugs are ok i guess but dudes will stand in place and be shot in the face, but don´t worry, they will spame missiles even if they don´t see you antmore (which gnerate a ♥♥♥♥ ton of smoke and stunlock!)
-Generic characters
-Story...forget about that, is there even a story?
-Cluncky controlls (you have to maintain pressed the crouch button to then press jump to dodge, like seriously....)
-Mechs are even clunkier, slower, not really more powerfull (specially when you want to go inside one quickly and you characters decides to instead take one of the weapons of the mech).
-Boos characters that will not stay still for a freaking second, like absurdly epileptic bosses; this while they spam smoke/snow particles, ♥♥♥♥ton of AoE attacks with stuns, a really slow character that is easly cancelled every action and that has to stop, yes stop running to change a weapon.
-Crashing on DX 10 option
-Terrible checkpoints.
-So much more

I am really serious here, this game has so many issues is not fun. I don´t know what were the standars on 2007 but this game has not aged well on 2014; and i am okay with mindless shooting, i am okay with the preassure (i liked Dead Rising 2 for example), but this game makes no sense, only thing i can think is the game not being so terrible (the issues less apparent ) on Normal Difficulty instead of Hard (although i thin there are even more difficulties.)

I payed 3.75 for this game and regret it, beware, you have to love this game a lot to really like it.
