    Overall Flashpoint adds a good amount of content to the base game. Flashpoints can be played if you’ve already beat the game or as a part of the game experience as you level. At $20 USD it offers new missions, new short stories, arguably one of the best melee mechs ever and a lush tropical biome to play around in. If you enjoyed the base game, you’ll love Flashpoint

    A laser-focussed expansion that adds variety and depth to the already solid base game. BattleTech: Flashpoint gives players new stories and something to plan their time around whilst playing in the sandbox of the BattleTech universe.

    As a singular purchase, Flashpoint appears rather modest on the surface. But taken as a whole, it would be impossible for me to go back to a pre-Flashpoint campaign.

    Battletech Flashpoint isn’t really a must own expansion, but it is certainly worth it for players looking for more.

    Battletech: Flashpoint adds some much needed mission variety alongside meaningful conversation choices outside the battlefield, but the limited number of new mechs and single new biome aren't going to justify the price for all but the most dedicated Battletech fans.

    Overall, Flashpoint doesn’t offer anything that will pull new players in — almost everything in this DLC is geared toward end- or post-game content, and this is its underlying problem. If all of these elements were mixed in with the single player campaign, they’d be nice flavor in the otherwise-dull side content. However, since this DLC seems tailor-made for people who’ve already finished the story (like me) there just isn’t enough to hold my interest.

  1. Flashpoint is fine expansion in terms of re-engineering BattleTech for extended play, then – far better than kicking us into another pit of mega-story or necessitating a new beginning. Long-term, I’d love to see more vibrancy from BattleTech – wilder planets, more colourful mechs and special attacks, grimier, punchier characters – but I suspect only the latter is compatible with this decades-old setting. Already though, a Flashpoint-augmented BattleTech is a significantly leaner and more adaptable machine than the lumbering brute of launch.

    Flashpoint doesn’t offer anything transformative, the way XCOM 2’s War of the Chosen expansion did. Dedicated BattleTech players will want to give this a look, but with as many options as we have now for interesting strategy experiences, everyone else can consider this addition as highly optional.

    The FP are great story telling, challenging and fun! The open game mode is great totally worth it!

    Battletech es un juego con una campaña lenta pero atrapante por momentos. Tiene un gran lore y mucho contenido para ofrecer por un precioBattletech es un juego con una campaña lenta pero atrapante por momentos. Tiene un gran lore y mucho contenido para ofrecer por un precio bastante módico. Algo para destacar, es que no intenta ganarse a las masas, sino cumplir con aquellos que les gustan los combates largos, el riesgo de perder unidades y las jugadas audaces para ganar la batalla.

    Las presentaciones y animaciones que cuentan el lore del juego son excelentes: tienen una gran ambientación y voice acting, que realmente dejan a uno con ganas de más. Durante la batalla, tratan de continuar con estos hilos argumentales pero no logran el mismo impacto.

    Por otra parte, el juego está montado en el motor Unity, algo que resulta un poco inestable según la configuración que se emplee. Puede tener bajos frames o problemas con las texturas, a menos que se dé justo en la tecla con el rendimiento gráfico.
