Horrible

A big blow up

I had high expectations for this game, only to have them blown out of the water with a cannon off of a mech unit. This game is very deceiving. The controls are difficult and the game doesn't have much space to play in. I would battle some player and would end up outside of the boundaries and receive warnings to return to the battle or else I loose. The graphics are very good in the movies but the game play graphics aren't as good. I was not enjoying myself because all I was doing was flying around in small areas and blowing up tanks and being shot at by another mech. Some have compared it to chrome hounds, but this game is much worse and chrome hounds was a great game.

Do not be fooled by pansies and their poor reviews.

Just because one is incapable of piloting a piece of virtual machinery that is clearly more sophisticated then they could ever comprehend

Does not mean the game is bad.

Its by far to most in depth customizable game ever in any genre of gaming.

And yes, it takes some degree of skill to play.

God forbid you cant just run around with a shotty shooting at a pre-determined angle.

What a disgrace

I don't know how they ruined this series, but they did. There is less customization here than the PS2 version of AC2...that game I enjoyed. I don't like giving games 1's, but I feel it truly deserves that for people to see a legitimate review to...stay away from this garbage. The movement at first seems pretty good, but then when you actually play missions?

The targeting shakes off so easily even if the enemy is still right in front of you, sometimes I have something right a few steps ahead, AND I CAN'T TARGET IT, what nonsense is that? This was once a great series, but I think this is where it's time to let it go...I was disappointed in Chromehounds too, but at least I had better control and a working target system there. It ruins the game and adds a degree of difficulty that shouldn't exist.
