Honestly, I should have known better than to get a game from Square Enix, because I know they aren't a great gaming company.
Front Mission Evolved has the worst story I have ever seen, the story changes and contradicts itself, and everything about it is just plain wrong.
The gameplay is annoying, all it is is run around at super high speeds, pick up your ammo and health refills, and hold all the triggers then proceed on with the game. There's this useless system called E.D.G.E which is honestly, useless throughout the entire game until the last boss fight, and if you die in said fight, you start over again, with NONE of the meter filled for the E.D.G.E system.
The story is really cheesy, with the most un-creative characters ever come up with, and the decisions the characters make makes no sense what-so-ever, so basically it's nothing new from Square Enix. Honestly, they never should have made a mech game, and should have left it to companies who actually know what they're doing, i.e Mechwarrior, and Armored Core.
Another thing that really ticked me off was the customization. The "campaign" gives you no freedom in the customization. At certain points, you MUST carry a said gun, or MUST have four legs, even when those four legs often get you killed. But of course, the AI never has to change their "Wanzer" (their mech) at all, because it's the AI, they can do whatever they want. Oh, and that's another thing. The AIs are horrendous.
Square Enix has again, dropped the ball. They should have stopped after Final Fantasy VII because that is the only good game they have ever made.
No: I don’t recommend this product
