    For Battlemech fans

    If you read books about Battle Mechs, then this is game for you. Same setting, same mechs - it's awesome. In other hand - holy balls! That's very-very old-school game. Not in terms of art or something, but in terms of controls.

    It's more like simulator of Battle Mech pilot. You are in the cockpit, you can see only what you can see from the cabin. If you want to look around - you need to turn around cabin. And your lower part - legs - are not turned. So you can move forward, look to right, shot forward and shoot to the right - because your weapons are looking where part they are mount on is looking.

    That will blow mind of casual player because you have a lot of things what need your attention. And then - you have OTHER mechs, and they want to crush you, kill you, blow your legs, so you will not be able to move, shot your hands to destroy your weapons, or snipe your cabin to instakill you and turn your battle mech to big, lumpy metal garbage...

    If you like such type of games, where you are able to control everything about your mech, when you feel, like you are in real battle machine, with powerful guns, rockets and lasers, you need to "feel" how to control it to stay alive - and kill those, who want to turn you to dead one.

    Pacific Rim as game?!

    The maps are beautiful, mechs have decent customization, but most of the cosmetics are behind paywall. The game has sometimes nasty problem with keeping resolution you set before and tries going out of fullscreen. People here are decent except few who call everyone noob but those are everywhere. If you plan on playing you should consider buying microphone as tactics are very important in this game and before you write something it takes time. The game has poor ingame explanation of loadouts and different subtypes of mechs ( you have at least 5 types of same mech).
