Mechs are piñatas, and shooting them is a pleasant process of eroding armor, limbs, and weapons—modular damage is one of the things that distinguishes MechWarrior most from conventional shooters. Even in MWO’s incomplete, beta form, Piranha Games has shown how well it understands what’s mechanically compelling about mechs. The customization garage is a context for engineering problems: how do you cram the weapons and subsystems you want into a 50-ton Hunchback without compromising on durability and speed? MWO rewards marksmanship, a tactical mind, and physical awareness.
VerdictRead the review
Slightly overpriced, but a more than worthy successor to one of PC gaming’s greatest franchises that nails the important part: combat.
