Rob Hamilton writes: "With Front Mission Evolved, Square-Enix and Double Helix take virtually all of the strategy out of the title and leave us with nothing more than a clunky third-person shooter with an uninspired terrorism plot featuring shallow, one-dimensional characters. Dylan Ramsey is a simple engineer destined to save the world and win the love of the female lead. His nemesis, Cornelius, wages acts of terrorism just because he likes war and conflict. Minor characters come and go and are so barely written into the story that their existence is meaningless. High drama, this isn't."
