  • Summary: The Titans of Steel: Warring Suns universe is a future where the main fighting unit is the Titan Attack Tech, better known as the Titan-AT. Titan-ATs are generally humanoid in appearance, range from seven to fifteen meters in height and weigh as much as 200 tons. A Titan-AT can have an array of weapons including lasers, auto cannons, missile launchers and other specialty weapons and defensive systems. Titans of Steel: Warring Suns allows you to design or reconfigure your own Titan-AT. There are 450 different Titan-AT types to start with, including 150 pre-designed Titan-ATs. Each Titan-AT has over 74 internal systems, electronics systems, 4 armor types, 20 chassis styles, 5 size classes (recon, light, medium, heavy, assault) and 29 weapon types ranging from conventional to exotic. Once you?ve settled on your perfect Titan-AT, you can share your design with other commanders. [Matrix Games] Expand

  1. Matrix did a great job in taking a board game style and incorporating it into a 3-D presentation. The building of your squad and Titans is a blast, and adds to the addictive quality and replay value of the game.
  2. Not a sexy action shooter, but an intricate, richly detailed game of serious turn-based strategy. But hex-heads and "MechWarrior" aficionados will find lots here to suck them in. [Nov 2003, p.122]
  3. The interface works well for executing moves but poorly for keeping track of your titans' status. [Feb 2004, p.82]

    I've been waiting for a PC translation of the Battletech type board game since the first Mechwarrior came out on the PC, now it's finally here and it's fantastic. Expand

    A very detailed mech combat sim. You are given tons of options to customize your pilots and mechs, the multiplayer mode supports campaign play and once you've got through the (admittedly rather steep) learning curve, you'll have tons of fun with this game, even in it's single player mode. It's a shame that the game never got out of it's little niche existence, as it is very addicting and easily as great as many a tabletop wargame. Expand

    It's ugly. it's slow. maybe 10 years ago, this game would have been quite cool, quite well comparable to 'mission force: cyberstorm', but yes, that's over 10 years old. Collapse

    Definitely a niche game. I really enjoy it. However, I feel there wasn't enough upfront info and training missions to start enjoying the game quickly. Quite a learning curve and an unforgiving UI. Expand

    Good game but if your titan gets damaged your stuck and all you can do is wait.
