    The gameplay is superb, the graphix are stunning, and to top it off its compatible with xbox live. What more can you want? Well for starters my only gripe with the game is that you can't customize your mech. I'm also a m... Read Full Review

    The dawing of the new era of the mechs.

    Back when I was a kid, the MechWarrior/MechCommander games took me over beacuse, who can't admit that using giant robots to blow up everything in sight was fun? In fact, this is the very game that made me get an Xbox in ... Read Full Review

    I couldn't get into this game at all. There are really no academics involved here, because it looks good and controls reasonably well. Mechassault attempts to be a simple game, where you can hop right in with a very powe... Read Full Review

    Its very important to understand that Mechassault is NOT like past Mechwarrior games on the PC. You don't play in a first person view, moving at very slow speeds. This is not a simulation. Mechassault moves fast. The... Read Full Review

    Amazing XBOX LIVE! features and great gameplay all add up to a major success in the Battlemech genre.

    Mechassault covers the tracks of a single Mechwarrior through the whole game. You have access to over 15 'Mechs, LIVE! capabilities, and a great game. The game starts you out as a Mechwarrior that has escaped the c... Read Full Review

    An excellent Xbox Live game. This game is really addictive online, and you can play pretty much non stop online for hours to come! I was a little timid to pick up this game at first, so i gave it a rent just to see how... Read Full Review

    Of all the Mechwarrior games that were released, Mechassault is by far the best.

    I have been a fan of the Mechwarrior series since I was nine, and this game by far is the best of them all. The gameplay is excellent with a nice touch of unlimited ammo (the only downside is the overheating function), t... Read Full Review

    Great potential but doesn't quite live up to the hype.

    I have never understood the hype surrounding this game. It is a good game don’t get me wrong but it seems like it could have been more. I understand it was one of the original XBOX Live games but that is no excuse. I fou... Read Full Review
