Front Mission 3

Thunderbolt Games
29 November 2004
  • Excerpt: One day the military-industrial complexes of the USA, Europe, the Middle East and the Far East are going to stop wasting money on dumb ”son of Star Wars” missile defence shields, better nuclear weapons and spy planes that get lost all the time. They will all get together and look hard at the state of modern warfare in the 21st century.

  • 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  • Excerpt: Front Mission 3 's graphics engine is, unfortunately, relatively blocky and outdated, even compared to its predecessor, FM2 .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. Fortunately, the mecha models are properly detailed, even if they suffer from a bit of pop-up, and they actually change during the game depending on what they're equipped with.

Into Liquid Sky
19 May 2002
  • 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

Front Mission 3 – Review

GameCritics.com
4 May 2002
  • Excerpt: In the last decade, paperback novels, celluloid film and broadcast television in the United States have seen a major upsurge in material vaguely classified by media critics as "techno-thrillers." This was largely due to the writings of one man, Tom Clancy. Reputed as a former insurance broker turned author, Clancy pen several novels with an absorbent amount of detail and in-depth knowledge of military hardware and their political underpinnings.

  • Excerpt: Set on earth during the year 2112 (cue the Rush music here), FM3 puts you in charge of a variety of huge humanoid shaped robots or Wanzers. Each Mech/Wanzer can be equipped with a variety of weapons including flamethrowers, missiles, machineguns, and cannons. Each weapon has its own unique attributes/strengths/weaknesses. A shotgun can hit multiple times and inflict damage upon a variety of Wanzer parts while missiles feature an extended range and uncanny accuracy.

Front Mission 3

  • Excerpt: I consider myself a strategy RPG fan, with games like Shining Force III and Vandal Hearts counted among my favorite games of all time. Front Mission 3 has been touted as a game that no strategy RPG fan should miss. With good strategy RPGs being as hard to find as they are, I couldn't possibly pass this game up. Problem is, I'm still not sure if that was a good thing. The game itself is massive, involving two possible scenarios with about 60 hours of gameplay each.
