ENIX really knows how to kill a game series! They are NOT Square, because ENIX bought Square so, Square is officially dead.... They destroyed this series in ONE game! I encountered a glitch where my game started to make a perpetual machine gun noise while playing this game! The game literally began to layer my WANZER's machinegun sound effect over and over and over again! Other people had encountered doors that won't open also due to glitches.. They took all the unlimited WANZER customizations and basically made them irrelevant by literally forcing you to use what load outs you can use...
TAKING CHOICE AWAY FROM THE GAMERS IS UNFORGIVABLE! By forcing what load outs you can you they made some sections even more unplayable, boring, and repetitive than it otherwise had to be!!!
The game has good graphics which is countered by ugly environments which makes the graphics enhancement's wasted... This game series was SUPPOSED to be based on MECH combat, but they threw in some third party human action game play sequences, which at those points make the game into a gears of war clone... Voice acting and story elements are what this company is SUPPOSED to be known for, but you won't find that here!! But then again I am glad I rented this and didn't purchase it... Thank you, GAMEFLY(get your spell checker fixed it is a little too unyielding, and needs a broader definition of terms)! TRY BEFORE YOU BUY!!
This game is just really really bad. Probably one of the worst mech games to date. The controls are the sloppy, the graphics are below average at best, the story, characters and dialogue are all completely horrid. Just one awful awful game. Do not purchase, and rent only if u really really like mech games. To me I am a big mech fan growing up on Gundam and Armored Core, yet this game seems like it would have been a Playstation 2 release bundle game u got for free, its just not worth a dime.

They should have stuck with turnbased instead of making this senseless third person shooter type. I like the old version of Front Mission cause it makes me think instead of just run around shooting everything you see without knowing why. Theres no story line what so ever and the game is super short. First Final Fantasy and now this. Squarenix, you are losing it
