Most good little MechWarriors are the lapdogs of their political masters. Some fight for the Clans, some for the Inner Sphere, some for a particular world or a noble house, some for a corporation. But all of them fight for honor, and glory, and loyalty. Then there's you. In your line of work, honor is a tool, glory is a pipe-dream for idiots, and loyalty is a negotiable commodity. You are a mercenary MechWarrior, and your skills are for sale to whoever pays your price. Scouting, assassination, defending a fleeing convoy, eradicating a 'Mech-heavy militia, leveling or possibly protecting a factory installation?these are the services you provide, and personal ethics aren't in the job description. And when you think you're good enough, there's always the colisseum...

Right when that install screen starts counting away the 100 percentile points to impending joy, I know for a fact that a good time will soon be coming. The heavy, war flavored music beats to quick paragraphs about wars of succession and the history of the mercenary. Then, from out of the blue, a really horrible video of in-game action kicks in. What the hell? Full MechWarrior games are traditionally preceded by amazing CG and lots of shooting. And, low and behold, I do recall installing this, MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries.

There's not much new in MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries, but what's here works reasonably well.

I LOVE the fact that the engine works this good, and I would be perfectly fine with it being used for the next 3 or 4 games....but they shouldn't be charging $50.

For now, though, Mercenaries reigns as the king of computer BattleTech games. [Jan 2003, p.68]

Loaded with 40 new missions, 19 multiplayer maps, some new weapons, and mechs, this is a must have for any MW fan.

Its separate parts don?t look like much, but as a whole, they work well.

The engine is a couple years old and not as cool-looking as contemporary games or even "MechAssault" for the Xbox... Also, the audio is unremarkable.

Kudos to the developer for the fact that the game ran trouble free without a patch?only the third game I?ve played in the last month for which that was true.

Everything was handed to the development team on a platter ? a working engine, complete with all basic content (textures, models, terrain) and this is the best they can come up with?
