God I wish this would come out this year. My hype has been at near-critical levels since the C# rewrite was announced.

is it that good? considering a purchase, but I like the old battletech games the new one recently were just flashy but meatless, so to speak.

It is challenging. You need to pay attention to cover and your tactics. It's turn-based, so you do have some time to think out your turns. I've restarted 4 times, just trying out things.

Just Jumped onto the Mechscom bandwagon. I'll let you know what I think of it in a few days when it finally downloads.

Excellent game - completely addicted (not great for C# Aurora I know).

Best moment so far was having 15 turns to complete a mission and doing it with the last Mech to fire on the fifteenth turn :)

Some great battles while badly outnumbered and outmassed. Team work among your Mechs is key and don't overlook the benefit of weapons with extra stability damage. A lot of kills when I knock down a Mech and then get a free called shot.

I will try to get back to Aurora soon :)

God that timed mission. I also cleared it last round, when I realized I wouldn't make it unless I just ignored the surviving enemies, and sprinted my nearest mech, my heavy, right up towards the objective. Then the rest of my lance proceeded to perform a series of flawless shots, blowing away the remaining resistance, with two rounds to go.

Then the game moved over to free move since I'd killed everything, and ticked down one round without letting me move my heavy again. Ended up making a save just in case I had to scum missed shots because man, that would have been bullsmeg.

Well worth the delay to C# in my opinion. It's the game many Battletech fans have been waiting years for.

I wish. But sadly I don't think C# Aurora will bring in hordes of BattleTech fans.

(Yes, I know what you actually meant.)
