I wanted to enjoy this game (i still do) but i just cant. there are so many angering things in this game, so many cheap cash grabs, and just too much restriction on the user. I remember 2-3ish years ago, i was so hyped for this (id been a follower of the mechwarrior series since before i was in school) so little 15 year old me bought the $60 "founders" package, which offered early access, a little in game currency, and a "special mech". so Eventually the founders got in, and played the game, times were good... for like half a month, then they just kept changing things, your payoff went down, your in-game currency became less valuable, things got more expensive, etc. etc. but this trend just kept going and going. now (2ish years later) the game has become nothing but a cash-grab.
Prices of everything in the game skyrocketed, to the point which in order to get something good, you would need to win almost 150 matches to get the money needed, while in one of the "trial mechs" (mech's which cant be edited, and change on a monthly basis) OR, you could click the shiny "Buy MC" (mech-credits) button, which uses real world money instead of in game currency to unlock more in-game content. a standard concept in modern gaming (unfortunately) but this game takes it to new levels of stupidity, to the point which some of the good mech's can cost upward of $40 paint-job? another $10s, little item in the cockpit? $10s more, $60. I would have to pay as much as i payed to get the game, for a stupid mech! not to mention the "bundles"of mech's which can be as expensive as $500!,More expensive than every other mechwarrior game combined, and people still buy them... and going the free-to-play path doesn't work, like i mentioned earlier, a victory values around 80,000-100,000 c-bills (the games money) while most mech's vary from 6,000,00 to 17,000,000 c-bills, so you would be spending dozens of hours grinding for the needed money, so regardless of which path you take, your screwed.
And then there is the community, its a very angry place. i cant say ive gone a day without seeing at least one "your wasting my time", or "my teams full of idiots" or many other hateful terms which have no real reason outside of "i died and im angry about it" perhaps this is just what gaming is, but its annoying. then there are the loyalists to the game. the people who say its ok theyre charging us hundreds of dollars for a good set up, because they "deserve it" maybe they deserved the money i payed to get in, but they dont deserve much more than that. in order to obtain all the games content, it would be in the thousands of dollars, but according to some of the community, thats ok by them because they "deserve it"
So to summarize my opinions, this isnt a game, this is a system to take your money and use the game as a distraction. Stupidly high costs, angry and overly loyal community, and developers who seem to completely ignore anything negative people say. they arent doing it for the community, they're doing it for they're wallets… Expand
Average User Score: 8.0Feb 13, 2014This was an interesting experience to say the least, I'm not sure if this would be called a game, but more of a choose-your-own-adventureThis was an interesting experience to say the least, I'm not sure if this would be called a game, but more of a choose-your-own-adventure story. I personally found this game to be amusing, At times it can be light and humorous, and at others it can take a deep and psychological path. it was very interesting and i enjoyed the time i played it, the only real downside is its a bit short for $15 game, so while i would recommend buying it, i may consider waiting for it to go on sale.… Expand

However, the thing i liked the most in this game is the ability to use casual mode. which makes it so you don't permanently loose your team when they go down. its also a lot less depressing and makes the game a lot more enjoyable. 1 more feature in this game is the ability to get characters from older Fire emblem games. (like Ike and such) from the bonus box, sure they don't talk or are involved in the story, but its still nice to see familiar face. in short, i would strongly recommend this game to players of rts games, fire emblem fans, and all other gamers alike, it is very enjoyable… Expand
