Ratings and Reviews
MechCommander Lite + Bugs
It wants to be MechCommander so so so bad. Some nice cut scenes. Ok voice acting (except for the transport driver, ouch) and some nice BattleTech Universe stuff. Problems include: Some ugly maps. As in ugly art. Pathfinding is wonky at times with AI unresponsive to your orders. Mech repair/salvage seems totally broken. You can repair your Mechs, but you can't pilot them again. Salvage/Repair/Resource management is half implemented and looks like it was disabled partially at release. Difficulty seems kind of easy too. Why make a big deal about pilot assignment to a mission when you never have control over who is available. None of my pilots were ever killed or wounded and were available for every mission, and I was always limited to just a lance of Mechs, so why go through the headache of pilot assignment on every mission? There are signs of bigger ideas, but it looks like the developer just didn't tie it all together.
Favorite bug: On first playthrough, go to the final mission and failed it on first try (due to mech selection). Final cinema was unlocked in the Media section even though I haven't finished the game.
Diehard BattleTech & MechWarrior fans may want it, but may ultimately be disappointed in the final game. Casual gamers might like it as a Lite Strategy game. It is the best portable BT/MW game, but since it's only competition is a MechAssault game for the DS, that's not saying much.
Waiting for stability
As of right now the game has an enormous amount of potential with its storyline (Which is very rich in references to the Battletech storyline making it awesome for any Battletech fan!) The developer stands to make a good amount of money off of this app and its content if they could only get the app working. Can't play past the 4th mission or so without crashes and lock ups. Waited a long time for the app to be released and looked very much forward to it, sorry to say that I am severely disappointed and dissatisfied. Hope that you can get it fixed soon! Seems as though you released the game too soon and without the proper testing. After a solid all around fix for the crashes, a better AI, more balance (as of now I can just mow the entire map over with a lance of assault mechs on just about every mission) and being able to actually sit down and play the game without being frustrated or board I will be more than happy to come back and give a 5 star positive rating.
Serious Performance Issues
The gameplay itself is good, but as a previous reviewer said, the game crashes way too much. Whenever you destroy an enemy mech, it slows down and then jumps ahead, putting you at a serious disadvantage. Sometimes, if the game crashes, it will ask if you would like to return to that same point in the mission, but the new mission parameters never trigger, leaving you with unresponsive mechs and no way to finish the mission.
I was enjoying it until I got to the sixth mission, where it just seemed like the hardware couldn't handle it, and after attempting to finish it three times (I was literally seconds away from finishing it the last time) I just find myself not wanting to touch it because of the length and frustration. Either fix the issues or take it off the store. The game is completely unusable due to these issue.
