The graphics and videoplay are clearly dated, but this is a great little robot combat shooter. It has a strong story line and the ability to adjust your team and individual vehicle's weapon' layout to meet your mission parameters, but if you have ever played the original eartSiege you'll know the bad guys will ALWAYS have you outgunned. Break out the stragety cap, because slinging bullets around will not save you or win the day. In fact, it's very likely you'll die faster. Definitely worth the investment.

I will say first off that this is a very old game and you will probably need a virtual machine or other environment emulator to get it running on a modern 64-bit system. That said, if you're used to playing old DOS and Windows 95 games that shouldn't be much of a hurdle for you. It's too old to support more than basic 2-axis, 2-button joystick input, but the controls are relatively simple and you can easily manage with one hand on the stick and one on the keyboard.

Once you've gotten the game running, it's a blast, and heavily engrossing. The game was graphically quite impressive for its time - the textured, fully 3D rolling terrain enhances the experience in terms of both visuals and gameplay when compared to the flat-plains-with-occasional-hills environments of Mechwarrior 2. All objects are 3D and texture-mapped, giving ES2 a further graphical edge.

Earthsiege is a mech-combat game which places the player in the role of a Terran Defense Force pilot, one of the few remaining members of the last vestige of human military, defending the Earth and the tiny remaining human population against AI-controlled war machines known as the Cybrids. Each of the eight or so pilotable mechs (called HERCs in the Earthsiege universe) has a unique fully designed cockpit, with all of the information readouts located in cockpit panel displays rather than the generic HUDs used by MW2 and most later mech games. Seeing your shields, weapons, radar, and targeting information all integrated into the cockpit displays makes the game more immersive and enhances the feeling that each HERC in the game is unique.

Gameplay is extremely solid, with a good variety of very well-balanced energy and ballistic weapons and well-rounded HERCs.

Although completely overshadowed by MechWarrior 2, the Earthsiege games were a lot of fun with cool weapons and explosions. The Terminator rip-off story is a bit bland but it's easily ignored because the gameplay is great. There's a good variety in the missions and if you can stand the dated graphics you should have a good time blowing up enemy robots.

For those having trouble getting this to work, there is a 32-bit installer available on the Sierra Help Files website which will get it running on modern 64-bit systems. I can play it on Windows 7 without issue.

Funny how the bad reviews are all about not being able to play a 19 year old game on mostly current machines. For those of you who still have the disk, YES, you can still play it in Windows 7, 64-bit. The game is awesome, someone else wrote a major review of it, read his summary for all the details. This is a very enjoyable game, as is its sequel Starsiege.
