Summary: It's not simulation enough to be an Armored Core or MechWarrior game and it's not third person shooter enough to be like one of the Cybertron series Transformers games. Sufficed to say, there are better places to get your mech action. It's not completely terrible, just very bland and unpolished.
Summary: I loved FM 4 for the PS2. The overhead tactical squad strategy game is one of my favorite. This game is not like previous incarnations in the least. This game is designed more like Armored Core. You no longer control a squad from a strategic point of view.
Summary: Cool I get to customize my own Wanzer!? Well, sort of. The thing is that you can customize to some extent but each level has a mandatory customization. The stickers for the Wanzer seemed like a really cool collectable, but it turns out they are so far and few between that getting them is trivial at...
Summary: Oh Front Mission, why have you forsaken me? All the hours wasted playing FM3 and 4 with its tactics and unlockable skills and awesome weapons. Instead its Virtua On or Armored Core with a more in depth story.
Summary: Got the game on sale through steam and sadly it is not even worth it as a bargain title. The controls are clunky. The gameplay is bland. Customization is nearly irrelevant. The small amount of customzing you can do has little affect on the play. At every turn the GUI is a hindrance.
