Subject: Mechwarrior 4 -- Gettin' to Blow Shit Up Again !!!!
Well, I just spent the last two hours playing the exclusive 250 MB Demo from PC Gamer for "Mechwarrior 4 - Vengenace", and of that time, most of it was spent firing the same two weapons for 5 minutes just to blow up one enemy mech.
This Mechwarrior game just proves that a great idea can be whipped to death. Don't get me wrong, when I am in the mood to get into a big metal can with weapons and blow shit up, this is the game I am going to do it with. However, that is all this game has to offer.
My recommendation is to wait till this game ends up in the bargain bin at Babbages or Software Etc. before you invest any money in it. However, I have been wrong once before (but it was a long time ago); so if you would like to see for yourself, but don't have a subscription to PC Gamer, you can check out Microsoft's 69 MB playable demo at Microsoft's Mechwarrior 4: Vengeance Demo. Let me know how right or wrong I am.
