You are one of these poor guys that lost his friends and love during a war between Shogo and The Fallen. You are a good soldier, but you are an idiot too that does not see through the whole thing. The admiral chooses you to deal with his dirty work. That is pretty cool because you get the chance to choose between four types of Mecha to accomplish your given tasks.
The game features unforgiving hard action in and outside of the Mech. 16 weapon types, 8 for the Mech and 8 for the Player. Heavy Metal, Heavy Tek, Riot and at least Shogo. The game changed its name very much during development and had to suffer under Half-Life after release in the same year, like every other better FPS from the 90s. My Lets play started recently.
