Dark Horizons: Mechanized Corps reviews and comments

Early Access Review Played one game with computer bots and one match in multiplayer to just see what the game is. A good Old game about furs, which I had a chance to meet in MechWarriors 4 for a long time. Hefty machines for the destruction of all earthly, armed to * the lasers, Gatling-guns, rockets and other whistles. So, the animation of course is not quite adequate, I would like more complicated physics when climbing the mountain, or when descent with it. These flights on the "Jetpaki"-too cartoon for such a huge still. No weight is felt. What is otherwise-mediocre but friendly graphics, intuitive interface (but newcomers may seem difficult), a funny system of destruction (almost nothing breaks), the ability to play in the network and give away to newcomers. I attribute myself to a beginner, but how much should I be a fool to threesome not to fight one? Come Out from the base stand Istukanami, slowly move and shoot at me... Why did it not reach them, that time and again I used the same technique-turned the head of fur 90 degrees and just circled between them at a pretty good speed?! They rarely hit. I've rarely missed. A Pile of Achivok, the first victory with a huge margin (despite the same idols companions). Yes, it was my day)))) P.S. I do Not know if I will return to the game yet, but I think after the update-yes. After all, the game is still crude, and it has a lot to add, for example to improve the meager customization of fur in the hangar....

Early Access Review Not a really good mech game, the Mechfeeling (you sit in a huge heavily armored Fighter runner) absolutely doesn't come up here, it's more of a mech shooter, or you rather feel you're steering a slightly sluggish, heavily armed Soldier. The Graphics aren't exactly pretty either, okay that's not the most important thing about a Game for me, but the Cockpit view is so ugly and pixelated that you immediately switch back to the Outside view, Mechwarriors Online shows how beautiful a Cockpit view can be and on Worst I find this annoying Pixel and Wobble Effect that occurs when the Mech Has only a few Life points left, that is quite disturbing that you are then hardly able to defend yourself successfully or even escape, so then you only serve as Cannon fodder. The Individualization possibilities are also very low, you only have 3 different Meg types (light, medium, heavy), which are also prefabricated Except for the Weapons, so create your own Mech, as you can in the Game Armored Core, here is not the In case, the Game is more of a very stripped-down Version of Mechwarriors, you only have a Handful of Weapons to choose from which also have a totally bad Sound. The Game is, in my Opinion, still in the Alpha that it still has many Bugs and Sound Errors. If you are looking for a Mechwarrior's Replacement here, you will be rather mistaken by the Game, but if you are only looking for a fast Mech ball game without any depth, you have come to the right Place.
