This is one of those games where u have to think alot, it forces you to make up mech-combinations from parts acquired in campaign mode and also this is one of those games for hardcore gamers who like mechs. If u gave this game a bad review this (mech) game isn't for you obviously. I see no flaws in this game, the graphics are crisp and decent and the online game play kills most mech games that are out now for 3rd generation consoles. The game play speed usually varies from just playing competitively online or just playing medium paced single player (campaign). The maps are well adapted to what the game has to dish out. The music is kinda dull but goes along easily without distracting u while playing. I have no clue how this game got such a bad gamer score but if anyone can pick out at least 1 decent mech game besides chromehounds that beats out this game in all aspects of it you might prove me wrong, and also gundam doesent count either because most of thier games arnt very good. The introduction of the boosters on mechs in this game may have thrown players off thier ground hump!ng mech game strategies, but none the less it creates an amazing multiplayer and online experience and opens up new light to action we've have never seen on mech games, no one should post negative score/comments about this game if they cant understand how the game works from just picking it up and putting it down for 5 minutes. Simply put this is an awesome game if u can understand how to play it.

All i can say is wow.. Looked thought all the screen shots. Looked like an awesome game to play, but then to find out that when i got it I tried the online play. I played for 30 seconds and said this game is real bad. Don't get me wrong the graphics are phenomenal. If your transformers, robot game fan then this is your game. But for me its not I like Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty 4 type of games. If you like those you will not like this game. Wasted time and a rental for me.

I will cut right to it... The graphics could be ALOT better. The draw distance seems lacking for the hardware of the PS3. And it's true, the areas you fight in are pretty bland.
Multiplayer is kind of fun, more fun than the singly player story missions.
Customizing your mech is where you will spend most of your time. There are many different options for selling, installing and trading your mech parts. If this is appealing to you then try the game out. If you are a hardcore AC fan, or any mech game for that matter pick this one up. Otherwise wait for developers to get a little better with PS3 coding.
(Sony does seem to be putting out some horrible games on the PS3... hopefully they can pick up the pace quick!)
