    Hi everyone:

    I'm not a big gamer, but my family is. They really enjoy Mech Warrior 3, and would like to go to MW 4, but I heard through someone that it is not as good and number 3.

    Have any of you gone from MW 3 to MW 4 and liked (or not liked) the change? If so - I'd appreciate your opinion before I spend the money.

    Thanks!

    Although my only experience with MW4 is the demo, it is great fun and I plan on purchasing the full version. PCGamer, a reputable PC magazine, gave it a pretty decent score. Perhaps you should try downloading the demo.

    Thanks for your opinons, brianF and WarC.

    I like the idea of downloading the demo first -- WarC, do you have a link of where I can download the demo?

    Thanks! :)

    Click your preference, HTML or Flash

    "Downloads" is on the left side, and then of course, Trial Version is on the top of that new menu. Go from there!

    Very fun game, in my opinion. But nothing beats trying it for yourself.

    The review BrianF pointed out was for MW4's expansion pack Mercenaries, not the original Vengeance.

    I read the Australian magazine PC Powerplay, and I find them to be unbiased and give honest reviews. You can read the MechWarrior 4 review at: http://www.pcpowerplay.com.au/review_content.cfm?id=229
    PCPP rate games out of 100, and I can assure you they don't give scores in the 90's lightly. Mech4 got 90%, but I agree with the others, try the demo.

    Just my .02 here, I have been playing the mech series since MW3, I have MW4, BK, and all the expansion packs. I just recently purchased the latest release, MW4-Mercenaries, and I give it a 100. It takes the best of all the previous games, fixes some known bugs, and is a blast. The mecha online community is migrating toward Mercs, I believe the earlier versions will be obsolete before long. Visit some mech sites before you buy and get some info from some long time gamers. I suggest
    MW4Online
    MekTek
    Dropship Command
