A rich and varied universe and more 'Mech combinations than you can shake a red-hot PPC at make this an intriguing and entertaining wargame that I'm sure to have loads of fun with.

I remember my PC Mech Warrior game so long ago...that brought me into the BattleTech universe un-intendedly! As an SFB enthusiast, this is the equivalent on the land. It seems to be more streamlined than SFB too. We used the miniatures rules. We played Trial by Fire and The Final Examination with some catapults, spiders etc. With the variety of mechs types, the game opens up a whole new world to me. It means more money spent for yet another universe of the Inner Space!

A friend taught me a game of this and bloom, this is awesome! The mech-to-mech core game system is very very streamlined: initiative determination, movement, combat and physical combat (melee), heat (the legendary calculation of heat with possible shutdowns) and then end phase. Each phase is easy to understand and he explained the rules to us while we were on the go with the scenario "Trial by Fire". We learned the rules and got them down before going further to another scenario "The Final Examination".

I found that Battletech is really THE si-fi tactical game for the wargamers. With all the normal wargaming conventions like hex and counters, facing, line of sight, allocation of hits and critical hits etc., a wargamer feels right at home after sitting into the cockpit of the mechs.

The game begins with each side rolling 2D6 for the initiative. The player who lost the initiative goes first, while being watched by the opposing mechs on where to go. Movement basically costs 1 MP cost on each clear terrain, with hills and water elevations costing more. If the mech has a line of sight to another mech, it can attack with range weapon or closing in for melee. Range weapons include laser gun, long and short range missile, auto-cannon etc. Hitting an opponent is a function of range and gunnery skill. If they hit the target, the player then rolls on the missile hits table for checking how many hits they can make onto the target. Each hit should determine the hit location with another table. The number of damages would depend on the type of weapon, e.g. each auto-cannon hit can do 2, 5, 10 or 20 damage to the target.

For sheer nostalgia, this game's a kick!

Love it when there's actual terrain, painted minis, and so on... just such a rich experience that harkens back to my childhood.

Some are born to move the world To live their fantasies But most of us just dream about The things we'd like to be Sadder still to watch it die Than never to have known it For you, the blind who once could see The bell tolls for thee...
