Synopsis: "You Win!" I have heard that statement more times in this one game than in any other video game ever. It's so EASY! But not the kind of easy where you get bored easy.
You control giant mechs, built for full-contact battle. And oh, man is it fun!
There are 12 different mechs to choose from. You'll have no problem finding one that suits your fancy. My personal favorite is Katana, because of his unstoppable Corkscrew Blade attack.
Absolutely totally the best part! Moves are so simple to pull off in the heat of battle. Moves are done by moving the joypad in a direction and then pressing either punch or kick. Thatís it! And There are only 1 punch & kick button each, so you have to spend your time wondering what type of punch you should use.
Pretty impressive for a PC game, but they could've been better. The mechs move very smoothly and there is no frame-rate slow down. You can even customize the overall speed of the game! Before and after every match a female announcer says a few things about how she thinks the match is gonna go or just insult the opponent. She's usaly on your side! She has no voice though, her mouth just moves to the text on the screen. At times it reminds me of how the old Chinese Godzilla movies were.
The music is like a mix of Techno and House music. Very catchy and you almost wanna start dancing to it! Well, at least I do.
The idea of fighting in Mechs isn't new. Gundam Wing, Mech Warrior, Robotech and other related shows and video games have been around for ages. But they never fight with FULL CONTACT! The Gundams used swords occasionally but they didn't punch or kick each other. Thatís why this game is totally bucket!
Chex Quest competes VERY hard against the game for being my favorite PC game, but I think this one wins.
You may be able to find it on ebay, but whatever you do, MAKE SURE YOU BUY THE GUIDE/MANUAL FOR IT TOO!!! You can't fully enjoy it without it. And a decent gamepad too.
