Mech action game, a lesser, forgettable story though
One thing that Mechs don't really get in their games is stories that are a bit more original. But, I guess, the developers are justified to leave enthralling plot for some other games, given that the selling point of those are the actual action bits, the crazy adventure of controlling towering, hulking pieces of metal, in a world that also wants mechs to do battle with eachother. So, this is the backdrop storywise: the robots have taken over as the dominant race on Earth, and are looking to replace humans, and the humans use mechs to get a fighting chance. In the game this never ending war is served via levels with their appropriate tasks, where you'll mostly skirmish your way on the map, hoping to deliver as much destruction as possible before you get killed. Graphically it's got that Quake look and vibe going, so expect some sprites as well, along with fully 3D models as well. Yeah, it's a game caught between modernity and the age of Doom, but, well, it does the job and is fun, if not that smart a game. Play Battledrome as well when you get enough of Metaltech: Earthsiege 2 but still feel like some mech action is needed.
