    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.

    Even if the game had a good development schedule, MechAssault does feel just a little rushed in places. But ultimately, the end product is a cool and kickass battle, both in single and multiplayer.

    While technical limitations hold the game back from greatness, when you look past the downgraded visuals there's a lot to like. [Oct. 2006, p.114]

    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.
