  • Conclusion: A must-have for mecha nuts, and a must-try for SRPG nuts who have not yet tried Front Mission.
  • Pros: Unique and addictive combat system, branching storyline.
  • Cons: Messy 3D looks even worse ten years later, the English script needs an overhaul.

Front Mission 3

Playstation Illustrated
5 July 2002
  • Excerpt: Front Mission 3 's graphics engine is, unfortunately, relatively blocky and outdated, even compared to its predecessor, FM2 . The shadows are pretty laughable, and the camera jumps and shakes as if the person handling it was on a permanent caffeine high.

  • Excerpt: It has been some time since we first heard about Front Mission and being a huge mech fans, we always wanted to see it released here. Now that Square is bringing everything over to America, we've finally got our chance and we're happy as can be.
  • Pros: Loads of wanzers to mix and match, Learning skills adds depth to the game, 100 + missions to work through
  • Cons: Game is very linear, Character models are ugly, Graphics seem a little dated

Eurogamer
29 July 2000
  • Conclusion: It can only be the more dynamic visuals that settled Square on using Front Mission 3 as a launch title for this type of game in Europe. Its much-praised elder, Final Fantasy Tactics, (released to date in Japan and America) doesn't boast huge mecha but does have a more engrossing system for character...
