    Even if you don't understand Japanese, it still a game worthy of being picked up.

    The only reason I picked this up was because it was sporting a Squaresoft, and I had enjoyed plenty of their RPGs. This however is not a RPG, but a turn-based strategy game, which is good because it is in Japanese and I ... Read Full Review

    Front Mission is a sure hit for fans of turned based strategy or mech games.

    For a game that came out for the SNES, this game stands up to a large portion of the current DS library. This is due, in large part, to the quality of the story telling and the story itself. The graphics could have used ... Read Full Review
