|This is one of those games that you actually want to sit through the wait line to download. It's a well thought out game, and it is also different from the Final Fantasy series in regards to game play. It's set up more like a Tactics game to be quite honest, so if the Ogre Battle games ever appealed to you, this is probably a must have.
The Graphics in general would have been a six had it not been for the mech's themselves. You gotta love the customized mechs.
The effects are nice, but I usually play this with the volume down and listen to my own music. You may like it when you first start, but I think you'll end up following my lead.
If theres one thing about this game that makes it standout, its the fact that you have to overcome increasingly bad odds the further in you get. It stays challenging, but at the same time is so addicting you may end up spending an hour or two on one area.
well this is basically the average of the three columns, i think the individual breakdown speaks for itself.
Want to know how long i waited for this on Vimm? 30 minutes in a line of 25+ people. Enough said.

|Well, to sum the game up, I guess it's your typical Square game. It's got a deep twisting story that you arn't quite sure where it's headed next, very good graphics for the SNES (in this catagory, it's not the best square has done, main stratagy screen is horrific, but this is only due to those great cart memory restrictions, and the up close views of the mechs make up for it), great gameplay (FF tactics fans will love it), and a great cast of characters (but, as with most square games, not all are deeply involved), and in my opinion one of squares greatest games on an old school console
This is my 2nd favorite stratagy game, the only thing that tops the list for me is Front Mission 3 so keep that in mind after thinking this review over.

|In Front Mission, you take the role of a Mech pilot turned mercenary in the middle of a war between two nations fighting over a small island. The Mechs (called Wanzers) are the main fighting forces, so your never have to worry about finding jobs. As you move from city to city, you'll gain levels, buy new equipment, and find more people to join your squad: ""Carrion Crow"".
