    For Those Who Dream of Bubble Mechs

    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 ridiculous, even wors... Read Full Review

    Decent looking, good cheesy story, great game play.

    Great fun to play, and works out nicely with the story line. Gameplay/Controls: 8/10 Controls are pretty decent, and best play as usual is afforded by the keyboard and mouse as it allows for more precise shooting (c... Read Full Review

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

    In this game you play a prince who tries to stop a war against a competing fraction. While the story is nothing to write home about, it doesn't ruin the gameplay, because you do not need to view in order to proceed. At t... Read Full Review

    A rock solid MechWarrior game. It upholds the name well and makes improvements on the gameplay and story mechanics.

    Definitely a great game. Must try!
