  1. Easy to pick up, fun to play, and highly addictive anyway you cut, slice and dice it.
  2. An excellent and enjoyable tactical combat game for those who don't enjoy base building or resource gathering.
  3. Anyone who has an interest in Military strategy with a whole lot of sci-fi thrown in should definitely go buy a copy of MechCommander 2, you’ll get your money's worth from the amount of playing time you’ll invest.
  4. 80
    A fun game that has no serious flaws except for horrendously long loading times.
  5. 80
    Handsome and smoothly executed.
  6. Those simply looking for a visually impressive, enjoyable real-time strategy game set in the BattleTech universe should find that MC 2 fits that description well.
  7. Good, and worth the time of BattleTech fans, but unless Microsoft fixes the performance issues it will never be a great game.

    MechCommander 2 is just another example of what makes the BattleTech series so great. takes all the great parts of MechWarrior and throws MechCommander 2 is just another example of what makes the BattleTech series so great. takes all the great parts of MechWarrior and throws them into a StarCraft-esque game that has explosions, death, and more. it more than deserves a place in your game library.

    Great game, this is exaclty what I wanted to first game to be. Sharp, 3d graphics, great and easy to understand mech customization. Only Great game, this is exaclty what I wanted to first game to be. Sharp, 3d graphics, great and easy to understand mech customization. Only thing I would add is a skermish mode, wich would make it very nearly 10. Expand

    Fantastic game. Mechcommander was (is) good, and the sequel is actually better. Graphically it's everything it needs to be, gameplay-wiseFantastic game. Mechcommander was (is) good, and the sequel is actually better. Graphically it's everything it needs to be, gameplay-wise there's notable differences between the mechs and huge flexibility in how you approach each level and objective. Personally I'd give it an 8.5, but 9 will do. Recommended. Expand

    This sequel of MechCommander Gold game takes everything good from the original and replaces 2D graphics with 3D graphics. Although it looksThis sequel of MechCommander Gold game takes everything good from the original and replaces 2D graphics with 3D graphics. Although it looks much better than the first game, it still plays pretty much the same. It's a good RTS game where you need to complete missions with a few mechs under your command. You equip mechs with weapons, mechs have weapon slots, and there is a weight limit for each mission, which allows different approaches depending on your tastes. If you still can get this game somewhere, try it out - it's pretty fun. Expand
