MW5 Mech Appeal

Post by Falker939 »

Maybe it’s just me , but I can’t get over how boxy and ugly the MW5 - and - Battle Tech Mechs are. They look like something you would find on some back water planet in the outer regions of the Inner Sphere. Mostly controlled by pirates with low tech - piecing they’re salvaged Mechs together with whatever they can find laying around. They look nothing at all compared to Clan Mechs , which I believe appear very sleek and more advanced.

MW4 Mechs have more going for them , and it doesn't hurt your eyes.

Robot Jox Mechs are more appealing.

I was looking around for other robot games out there to compare with the MW5 Mechs - and I came across Titanfall 2014 - it’s looking really interesting – worth a try, and I bet it can be played with a mouse.

A few years later they came out with Titanfall 2 - The graphics are a bit rich but you might adjust to it – I see this is also on Steam.

..and Titanfall 3 is in the making

So far I’m liking Titanfall – of course you will need to go through the training before you can play the game because there are so many jump moves you need to know about. Plus there are smart weapons that can shoot two enemy targets at once. It takes a bit of practice to get the hang of it. What’s more ‘ The Mechs have Jump Jets that allow you to slide from side to side - just like in MechWarrior 2 , and the sound effects are pretty cool. Although after the training simulation there is nothing left to do but go online to play. However, There are no online hosted games that I can find out there - and you will need to have a friend to join your hosted game before it begins. Beyond that Titanfall does not have a single player campaign so I’m left with nowhere to go..

So I would say this game is a wash … But Wait! I see that Titanfall 2 , has become much more popular with 93% positive reviews – And there is also a single player campaign to sharpen your skills so I’m heading over there next – just as soon as Steam refunds my Titanfall (1) purchase. :)

Any game without single player missions and a campaign is a fail for me. Let us know how Titanfall 2 is! I'd be interested to hear, although I have no time whatsoever to play online right now.
