As Capcom learned with Bionic Commando, farming out classic series to Western developers isn't necessarily a good way to ensure their survival. But Square Enix has seen fit to hand the reins of the venerable SRPG Front Mission series to relative newcomer Double Helix games, who developed such gems as G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra. The result? This 'evolution;' of a tactical strategy title to an overly simplistic 'mech action game."
