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.
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.
