In the future, the world is a changed place. Technology has advanced. Countries have merged into massive geopolitical blocks. But one thing, sadly, remains the same: Humanity’s appetite for war.

Dylan Ramsey, a young engineer, finds himself quickly caught in a swirl of destruction, conspiracies and crumbling alliances. Experience his story in this high-octane third-person shooter. Choose from dozens of weapons and wanzer parts to customize your unit, and blast your way to victory. When you think you’re ready for a new challenge, join the ranks of online pilots for intense multiplayer battles!
Pros: Good price. Was cheaper than on steam (steam will be required to play).
Cons: Being a long time fan of the AC series i decided to pick it up since i could get it so cheap. One weak later i find out the multiplayer servers are offline.
Other Thoughts: If the multiplayer servers were online i would have happily kept playing, however i only played for 1-2 hrs and uninstalled.

Solid arcade-style action
Pros: Controls are good, graphics are outdated but consequently run nice and smooth. Story is SUPER silly/corny but still engaging.
Cons: This is absolutely nothing like any other Front Mission game. It shouldn't have even been called by this name. Previous Front Mission games are all about strategy and out-foxing the enemy. This is standard run-n-gun stuff.
Other Thoughts: Worth the play if you can get it inexpensive and you love Mech titles. If you like Armored Core you'll be right at home although slightly disappointed by the reduced complexity of things.

Solid mecha fun with a side of cheese
Pros: Pros include tight controls, great customization of your mech, plenty of parts and weapons to play with, an addictive collecting mechanic which gives replay value to the levels. There's something intangibly awesome about the way the game moves and feels. Great live orchestral score too, by the same composer as Bioshock 1 + 2, and a fun, if simple, multiplayer mode. Excellent use of color palettes to set the stages apart with ample mood.
Cons: Story is corny, though I found this to actually be a positive in some ways as it is almost cute in it's awkwardness. Voice acting would have been great - if the lines were better. Can't blame the actors for that. Campaign is a little short, but there is replay value in both collecting hidden items and trying new loadouts.
Other Thoughts: Though some may say otherwise, this is not the first action-oriented Front Mission, nor even the first TPS in the series. Though the plot is simple and a little cheesy compared to the mature, dark Front Mission 5, it's still a really fun story (and game) on it's own terms, and I love the art direction.
