If one spends any time on the forums, it's easy to see that there's pretty much a civil war between the relative handful of people who actually frequent the boards. If you don't visit the forums, the game is quite fantastic. The graphics are fantastic, and the Mechs and weapons are very well done. There's a bit of a learning curve, but as a codgery old purist I like it that way.
The current game needs some variety, but that's on its way. The feature roadmap looks exciting, even if there have been delays. There were some questionable development choices, such as putting Mech knockdown on the back burner, and introducing third person view in direct contravention of the community, which is why MWO doesn't get a 10. The codger in me is grumpy about these things, but we can't always get everything we want. The publisher has to make money somehow, or there wouldn't be a game at all.
Overall, I rate MWO very highly, and recommend it to anyone who gets a kick out of blowing up giant robots with other giant robots.… Expand
