    Furious battles between fifty ton robots never looked or played so good, and Mechwarrior fans will love this latest chapter.
  2. Of all the games set in the Battletech universe, MW4 comes the closest by far to creating an "authentic" mech experience.
  3. If you're out for a great Mech simulation with some incredible Instant Action games and an inspiring multiplayer setup, all wrapped in a beautiful 3D engine, then run, very fast, and grab a copy.
  4. 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.
  5. The single biggest change made to MechWarrior is in speed. Gone are the days of slow, plodding robots.
  6. For anyone who wants a mech "simulator" this is by far the best offering out there and has much to recommend it over its predecessors.
  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.

    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 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
