Pros and Cons:
GREAT Replay value. For each of the training missions you can do, you can get a bronze, silver or gold. So you constantly have to adjust your strategies to overcome these obstacles, giving the game great variation. Also, there are MANY ac's that you can fight. The other mechs that are not in the top 30 change their weapons, so you will always have some variety.
GREAT Variation. There are about 16 different parts to your mech. Then, for each part, there are at least 30 different parts. You can have laser guns, rifles, cannons, bazookas, pods, sniper rifles, machine guns, missle launcher, and variations of each of these as well as in the kind of core, head, arms, legs, etc. You obtain different parts when moving up ranks in the tournaments and achieving missions in training.
Pro/Con: Well, this is bad to some but great to many more. Now you do not have to do anymore "real" missions. There is no more "Protect this thing" or "hunt this thing" or something like that and there is not time limit in the tournaments.
If you are not into mech fighting, then you can get bored really easily.
In the beginning, it really doesnt give you any introduction to the game, so it is very hard in the beginning.
Sometimes some mechs are REALLY strong, so their ranks are discoordinated. For example, I can beat rank 2 without a sweat but rank 30 can destroy me.
BUT I DIGRESS!
This one I was very dissapointed with.
Good: Loved some of the re-vamp features such as the overheating(draining power instead of AP, great for my high EP style personally), the controls(making full use of both joysticks), Tuning, hangar units,(carry-overs from nexus), Some weapons universal to both hands(in my opinion, all should be), rivitalization of old-school parts, etc.
Can't say anything for the optional parts, which i never really used, including and espescially Op-intensity. A fact i'm very proud of. :) I find it cheap and dishonorable.
Bad: Some said very minor features which changed weren't as good. Such as machine guns able to fire a burst then be re-laoded as apposed to the full bore stacotto. But they were So minor it didn't take much from the game. The biggest draw-back: NO STORY WHAT SO EVER! No missions. It takes place during a lull in history where ravens are not needed and continually train and fight each other in the arena to get their fix.
Can't rate it well to the others. Could be fun to new commers but myself being a veteran, I've seen the light in the older games, a light absent from this one.
