MechAssault for the XBox

MechAssault boasts great graphics, detailed Mechs and engaging single player ... but just wait until you take your mechs LIVE!

The game basically has you controlling a variety of mechanical robots with armor and weapons on a planetary assault mission. You land and start fighting off infantry, tanks, other mechs, and more.

There are a bunch of single player missions that you go through on your quest to rid the planet of the enemy. The graphics are quite nice, with rolling fields, rocky mountains, bases full of bridges and vehicles. You can blow up boats, take out bridges, demolish large buildings. You can stomp on infantry and shoot down helicopters. It's very destructive, but all in the name of saving the planet.

The mech takes a little getting used to, because of the combinations of flying, twisting torso, movement, and weapon selections you have. But really, for any gamer that's played games for more than a year, this shouldn't be a problem. The controls are rather intuitive and we were up and running with the mech in no time flat. Your ability to pretty much go anywhere and demolish anything means that you can take a number of different approaches to any problem. Add in the fact that you can often choose from a variety of mechs to take on the mission, each with its own configuration, and you can really get involved.

Still, the missions are single player and your multiplayer gameplay on your own system is two player only. The single player missions can probably be won in a weekend if you go for the easy settings. But all of these things are merely TRAINING for the true on line experience, with XBox Live!!

No AI is ever going to match the true cunning of a human (at least not any time soon) and when you play on XBox Live, you get to play against entire teams of mechs! You can play Capture the Flag, deathmatch, team deathmatch, and MANY other types of games. It is amazingly fun! And you really do need that single player or two-player local mode to practice in, so you can hold your own against the Mech players from around the world.

Highly, highly recommended if you have XBox Live. It's a blast! If you don't have XBox live yet, it's a great game to play for a while, if you keep increasing the difficulty level to keep you challenged.
