    Some of the most astounding graphics ever seen on a 3-D battlefield.
  2. Of all the games set in the Battletech universe, MW4 comes the closest by far to creating an "authentic" mech experience.
  3. MechWarrior 4 has more types of BattleMechs, missions, and weapons than MechWarrior 3; the multiplayer competition is outstanding, the artificial intelligence is improved, and the graphics are generally splendid.
  4. While the AI has a few problems, and there is an occasional rough spot, the finished product is one of the most complete and compelling games we've played, and easily the best MechWarrior game in the series.
  5. The single biggest change made to MechWarrior is in speed. Gone are the days of slow, plodding robots.
  6. Complex and simple at the same time, MechWarrior 4 reaches a Zen-like balance between simulation and pure fun.
  7. If you're more interested in multiplayer mech action and a not quite as brilliant single player game, then you should give Mechwarrior 4 a look.

    Great story, very addictive. A hard choice on the second-to-last mission: Save Sister or Get Supplies. I took Get Supplies. It deserves two thumbs up! Expand

    Awesome game, great graphics, more than awesome multi-player. My all-time favorite game. Small items cut it down from a 10 -- I would like a more "gritty" or "techy" MechWarrior. This one is more refined and limited, but more playable for it. Expand

    Great game. Pick up a joystick, strap in and enjoy its amazing campaign.

    Game does not use the real weapon to damage ratio or the right color for certain lasers a little more checking should have gone into it but still ok to play multi if bored. Expand
