BattleTech is a turn-based tactics game based on the original table-top wargame created by Jordan Weisman. It puts the players in charge of a mercenary company fighting in a harsh universe full of political intrigue and brutal survivalism. The player’s are tasked with completing missions using a team of four mechs, called a ‘Lance’. These mechs are fully customisable and the pilots – MechWarriors – can gain experience and new skills over time.
Above the tactical combat layer is a no-nonsense RPG/Business Management system that will force you to make tough choices to your outfit in the black – if you go bankrupt, it’s game over. You can read Ian’s full thoughts on the game on our sister website – Strategy Gamer.
BattleTech can be purchased via the store options below, and the base version costs £34.99 / $39.99.
Editor’s Note: This is an experimental feature we will be trialling for certain high-profile game releases that would be covered across multiple sites. Due to technical reasons, we will no longer be re-posting the content of articles wholesale across multiple websites. Apparently, Google doesn’t like it. This is one way we can fill in the ‘review’ entry for the game. Let us know your thoughts on this if you have any.
