HG1 & 2 were the next best games to Mechwarrior 2 when I was younger. I'm all for a reboot!

How does this differ from Mechwarrior? Are the weapon systems more complex? The point and click of MW:O is a bit simplistic for me even though I like the game.

you can get out of the mech as a human and stuff like that there is a thing where you have to run with the CPU AI of your mech after you eject so it does not get blown to bits. Everybody else can kill you as you get out of the mech.

If you are out of the mech it is dangerious though.

That is one of the new things I would watch the videos on the site about what they want to do with the newer game.

Everything else is like heavy gear 2 they said it will be a hardcore simulation. Mechwarrior online and hawken are new simple mech games like mechassult. the old mechwarrior games are simulations. or steel battalion only the keyboard was the 40 button controlers and you might have used a stick with it the old mechwarrior games was more complicted like driving a real mech.



If this game was racing it would be grand turismo and forza as pure simulation and hawken would be forza horizon and burnout/ need for speed.



yes the weapons and gear parts you pick and take are more complex they was in 1999 they will be changed to 2014 standards and do other things like range and things. they are also faster robots. IT is also a board game series.

you can read the heavy gear 2 review if you want they explain it in detail

Oh and the Mech artwork looks better than mechwarriors mechs.

I really liked Heavy Gear 2 back in the day. I'll keep an eye on this.

Heavy Gear 2 was one of the best games I played but it would crash after the 4th level on me so I never was able to finish it.

I'd like to see a reboot but I'm thinking that they wouldn't put enough focus into the single player campaign to make it worth it for me.

I liked HG2 but from what I understand that deviated a lot from the HG universe, so I'm not sure what this would be.
