Sci-fi Simulation of the Year
MechWarrior 4: Vengeance
"The graphics are excellent, the game loads quickly, and the interface is easy to use. It is incredibly polished in comparison to some other games released earlier this year. The single-player campaign is dynamic, with many different types of scenarios to beat, so you'll never feel as if you're playing the same mission for the 10th time. Multiplayer is incredible, whether free-for-all or team play."
"Once the game starts, you will quickly realize that the interface in the game is even better than the manual suggested. Setting up missions is done in a playbook that seems to be resting on an old wooden table. Parts of the campaign have heroic music in the background, cool configuration screens, and an aviation theme straight out of an old serial movie. This is one game in which the set-up screens are a fun precursor to the actual 3D action."
