Thinking of getting this game for solo play. How does it play solo? Is it yay or nay?

What? You thought I'd have some interesting overtext?

I like it solo, you just have to command more than 1 mech, so hopefully, you can keep things straight. I didn't find it hard.

It's definitely playable solo, but much more fun and chaotic with more people.

Yes, if you like controlling more than 1 mech it works well solo.
I ignore the timer element and play 4 mechs. Playing only 1 mech would be unsatisfying.

It is better with 4 as the humor comes out more.

I played through the entire game solo controlling two mechs. It was quite fun.

Of course, there is some joy in watching everything fall apart with your friends, especially if it's because someone (me) screwed up massively.

Still wondering if I buy it or not (as I will only solo play...).
I've read there are some scenarios where it is very difficult to win without 4 mechs. Do you confirm?
I can accept playing 2-3 mechs but I'm afraid that playing 4 mechs and deciding which programming to do for each of them can be quite tough.
What do you think?

Play it with 2, if you find any of the challenges too hard you can always change it up for those particular scenarios. Or you can customize it.

I play this as 2-players game and haven't had problem winning the game multiple times. While some missions are easier to complete with 4 mechs, there are missions whic are easier to win with fewer mechs.
