    Great game ahead of its time

    Fun, Great Storyline

    This Game I played along time ago, but I remember the hours of fun I had playing it. You get to chose between two factions which was something new at that time, and each one had a completely different set of missions. It... Read Full Review

    This game is so awesome to play. I can play the missions for hours and I'll never get tired of them.

    Nothing like a mech!

    This was my first Mechwarrior game and only one at that, but it was very memorable. It had a unique storyline and you play as a merc for hire. The graphics aren't bad if you think about it, this game came out around the ... Read Full Review

    Mechwarrior 2: mercenaries was a great game, if not the best of it’s time. The Gameplay was simple, the driving was easy, I could remember the short-cut keys, and most of all I loved the weapons. This game was easy enoug... Read Full Review
