Since you provided zero information about the game nor did you add any links, how are we supposed to know what this game is even about?

Well clearly you're not a baker

It's a turn- based, mech combat game based in the huge Battletech/Mechwarrior universe, and it looks awesome.

I been a mechwarrior fan for some time, I just got the game on steam, but its still locked.

There are a bunch of videos on the game.

some minor spoilers of the first 66 minutes of the game

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtIi_PiLQLg

But anyway, the game seems pretty complex, like heat management, pilots and skills, correct usage of light battlemechs and so on. You can also customise the loadout of each mech. and you control only 4 mechs, (nothing larger) and you belong in a mercenary group.

The date the game is set in is 3025, So before the invasion of the clans and mechwarrior series.

Overall, looks good, can't wait to try it out.

Only done the tutorial and first mission, I think this game needs a lot more work, granted that the devs are a small studio, but still, game has been released in a bit of a buggy state.

also from what I read, it takes a long time to repair mechs and heal pilots if they are injured. Also the game is very heavy on the graphics card. so yeah, needs a fair amount of work still and a bit of a rebalance. Also while the turn order seems to be a nice idea on paper, (light mechs move before medium and heavy. in practice, I find this to be pretty tedious. And not very clear on who gets to move next, plus it can make your mechs a sitting duck until the next move order, if you badly placed them, or enemies get too close.

its not a bad game, but I think there are a few aspects where the game could be improved. also you can't name saves, and the game has no borderless window mode. So a couple of negatives there as well.

Just hope this game doesn't get abandoned like their last game, which was as soon as it was released. So to me, the future of battletech is uncertain, unless the devs come out and say we have big plans for this game, I hope they do support it, and hopefully give them time too iron out some of the technical issues and gameplay issues.

I played main campaign for 3 hours and didn`t like it at all.
1)Text is horrible. This is Yaoi-fanfic level of writing. No logic at all.
2)Missions are boring as hell. And simple. It all feel dumb and make no sense >_>
3)Combat is boring.
Huge dissapointment
