Mech Warrior 3
Introduction: Mech Warrior 3. One of the already great Mech Warrior games. This is a good game without a doubt but there could also be some improvements. This game is as good as the previous Mech Warriors and you don't need to start from the first one to play this game.
The Graphics in this game are quite good. They could be improved though. One area of improvement would be when you fire your weapons. Sometimes you can barely see them and they are not that animated. Some strong points are that all the Mechs look fantastic and all really different. There are also some interesting buildings around they look really good.
The sound on this game can be quite dramatic at some points but sometimes to soft or similar. A lot of the levels have quite dramatic or appropriate music. Others the music is too soft and repetitive. There is also good sound when the Mechs are walking around. There is also some good music in multi player mode.
The controls on this game are quite good but when you first learn how to use them they can be a little complicated. Most of the controls will take a little practice to master but some will come on very easily. The Gameplay is also very good.
Replay Value: 7/10
Once you have finished this game there is very little to come back and do again. Some of the best things to do again are trying to find different strategies to win a level or getting a better time. But there is also a multi player mode as well as other challenges out of the main campaign.
This is a very challenging game and will keep you entertained for ages. But it is not so difficult that it is impossible. There are many challenges and sometimes you will have a lot of trouble but after practicing a few times you will be really good at it.
Rent or Buy?
This game is a good buy. There is a lot to do and will keep you entertained. But I would still recommend renting it and seeing how it is and then buying if you enjoy it like I have.
Closing Comments: 8/10
This game is a good game. No doubt there. But whether you like this game or not is a matter of self opinion. I loved this game but there still could have been a few improvements. That is why I gave this game 8/10.
