    But mostly the gameplay comes down to trading fire with enemies who have way too much health and not ennough variety in battle tactics. [Nov. 2006, p.140]

    Although MechAssault: Phantom War isn't necessarily the worst game to ever pop up on the DS, it's pretty close to the bottom of the pile. The poor controls and bland graphics are a far cry from everything that made the original MechAssault game on the Xbox such a success.

    In many ways, this game reminds me of the bane of my gaming existence, Goldeneye: Rogue Agent for DS.

    It's: - Based off a popular shooter
    In many ways, this game reminds me of the bane of my gaming existence, Goldeneye: Rogue Agent for DS.

    It's:
    - Based off a popular shooter
    - Control is mainly stylus-based
    - A massive disappointment

    The DS stylus is a good piece of hardware. But it's not for action games like this.

    If you're looking for an awesome sequel to the MechAssault series, this isn't it.
