    For Those Who Dream of Bubble Mechs

    Rated on July 14, 2006 by TomJeffJones

    Mech4 is a step backward from Mech3. 1st of all, - it does not look better. The Mechs are poorly proportioned and don't have the sense of weight they had in Mech3. The cockpits are absolutely r...

    Fun gameplay, lame storyline, and overall a good game.

    Rated on August 10, 2006 by JSGD2003
