If you like mechs, this game is for you.

User Rating: 9.2 | MechWarrior 3 PC
If you're a mechwarrior fan, buy this game immediately. I have played Mechwarrior 3, Mechwarrior 3 Pirates Moon, Mechwarrior 4, Mechwarrior 4 Black Knight Expansion Pack, and Mechwarrior 4 Mercenaries, and let me tell you, this game is the truest to the Mechwarrior series as anything else you're going to buy. This game has all the classic mechs, from the small Firefly to the devastingly powerful Daishi. GAMEPLAY: 10 Excellent controls and customization screens are easy to use, even though it may seem a bit overwhelming at first. The mechs just feel right, especially when you go to a light, fast mech to a lumbering assault mech, the speed and manuverability change can really shock you. The mechs are all very well balanced, no mech being less important than the other. GRAPHICS: 7 I bought this game in 2004 and boy this game's graphics are awesome for when it was made. Great mech detail (even better than the new games), weapon animations, and mech animation. The game's graphics are old, which can show up in the terrain, which isn't too great and pretty sparse, but it's still great. When you hit a mech, their armor actually falls off and if you hit a part enough wires and whatnot can actually start showing, showing severe damage in that area. Not like the newer mechwarriors where armor just turns black and starts sparking. SOUND: 8 An average soundtrack combined with awesome weapon and mech sounds. The soundtrack is actually absent in some parts of the games, but that's ok, since you'll be focusing on piloting the mech mostly. There are also voiceovers which sound great for how long ago they were made. VALUE: 9 With no multiplayer, the value of this game drops, but the campaign is interesting and will have you playing again and again, and the instant action allows for endless mech customizaton (did i mention the millions of combos you can outfit your mechs with?). TILT: 10 A great mech simulator which any mechwarrior fan or anyone remotely interested in giant robot fighting machines should pick up and play.
