MechWarrior Online Beta Impressions | Gameranx

Gameranx: "It's been quite some time since I've been at the helm of a towering battlemech. The franchise's height, and the body of my time spent with the series, was more than a decade ago with the 1999 and late 2000 respective releases of MechWarrior 3 and 4. Several years later would come MechAssault and its sequel, which moved the action away from its traditional first-person, simulation combat on personal computers to a more arcade-like experience on the original Xbox, much to the chagrin of its hardcore fans. In the years following, the series was mostly absent, only teasing us with a possible return to form - and then quietly disappearing—in the Xbox 360 title simply named MechWarrior. But MechWarrior as we knew it has finally returned, this time as an online only, free-to-play experience." (MechWarrior Online, PC)
