Product Description

Product Description

Suit up in BattleArmor and seek an enemy 'Mech to "jack." What's yours is yours and what's theirs is your too...if you're good enough. Crush the Word of Blake in campaign mode or take the fight online.

From the Manufacturer

MechAssault was, in my opinion, the best Mech game of this console generation. MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf builds on this solid foundation by adding new gameplay features, vastly improved graphics, and new online functions. With so many clear improvements, Lone Wolf is an even better game than the first, but also has a few flaws that the original didn't.

The biggest difference in Lone Wolf is that there are other types of vehicles to pilot besides giant robots. Besides Mechs, you'll control battle armor, tanks, and VTOLs over the course of the game. You can even get out of your vehicle at any time during a mission and run around. All of the different vehicle types control well, but the missions that require you to spend a lot of time on foot somewhat suck. My pilot character tended to stick to the environment a lot, leading to many deaths I couldn't avoid.

These on-foot missions, as well as a few others, contributed a lot to the uneven difficulty level of the campaign mode. While I beat the game in about 12 hours, much of my time was spent repeating a handful of tough stages scattered throughout the game, which made for some uneven pacing.

Okay, now that I've covered what I didn't like about Lone Wolf, I can move on to what I loved about it. The core gameplay is just as fun as the first, and I really liked the variety of missions. I personally found the tank levels especially enjoyable – using its cannon as a sniper rifle will never get old. The ability to switch vehicles really emphasizes the scale of the Mechs – much more so than in the first title, I felt like I was piloting an unstoppable engine of destruction. The inclusion of both new and old Mechs makes for a good selection of the giant war machines.

The addition of a couple of classic boss battles is also a really nice touch. The final boss is one of the coolest-looking foes I've faced in a long time, and overall the graphics are great. Both the Mechs and environments are much more detailed than in the first game (although there are some heavy draw distance issues), and the cutscenes look fantastic. The soundtrack is really fitting, and the story is engaging, while a bit sparse.

Of course, online play is a huge part of the MechAssault franchise, and in this arena Lone Wolf certainly doesn't disappoint. It plays much like the first title's online mode, although the new vehicle types add a lot of flexibility within individual maps. It's fast and frantic to the point where it can be difficult to formulate a strategy, but seldom frustrating. The new vehicle types have allowed for some interesting game types and maps, so Lone Wolf's online play really offers something for everyone. Conquest mode, in which different teams vie for control of the solar system in a persistent war, will no doubt become one of the biggest draws on Xbox Live.

While some of MechAssault 2's new features came with unexpected side effects, Day 1 must be applauded for doing so much with this sequel. Despite its flaws, Lone Wolf is a terrific game that deserves the huge following it will certainly develop.­



Concept:
Destroy everything that moves in a giant robot or other vehicle. When you're done with that, destroy others online



Graphics:
The Mechs look great, the cutscenes amaze, and blowing things up looks just swell



Sound:
Throw the horns up for some rockin' metal and the soothing sounds of futuristic war



Playability:
It's never been easier to rain horrific destruction down upon your foes



Entertainment:
Giant, heavily armed robots plus online play equals a ton of fun



Replay:
High

2nd Opinion:
No one does rampant destruction quite like a Mech Warrior. As a great follow up to a stellar game, Lone Wolf is no exception to the rule. It offers some of the most impressive destruction and particle effects you'll come across anywhere. The onscreen chaos is tremendous in scope, and demolishing everything in your path is cathartic on a profound level. That's why I have something of a major gripe with the on-foot sections of the single-player game. While usually short, they take away what I like most about the series – that overwhelming sense of power. Also, an inordinate amount of distance fog throughout dulls some of the visual excitement. There's also something of an uneven difficulty curve as you play, with levels hopscotching back and forth between really hard and super easy, but overall the campaign mode is excellent. Multiplayer gamers should be extremely pleased with the new innovations in their department. Switching vehicles adds a surprising layer of teamwork and strategy, and the intergalactic Conquest mode is highly addictive – proving there's more than one reason to get Xbox Live this winter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Mech Fun - A Bit Too Much Foot-Time Though July 2, 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
MechAssault 2 Lone Wolf brings us yet another game of fun robot driving. You get a wide range of robots, as well as a few types of gameplay.

The graphics are reather nice - from the large explosions to the lightning-zaps of your weapons. You stomp around, gathering up supplies, blowing up everything that is around you.

However, where the previous game trapped you in your robotic shell, now you can climb out and get into other vehicles and tanks. You can lay down bombs to take out your enemies. This might seem like a cool feature - but it usually ends up with your frail human skeleton being squashed like a bug.

You can go online for traditional deathmatch battle, as well as a team MMORPG type of environment where you can go for more long term goals.

I have mixed emotions about the "expansion" from traditional mech gameplay. I understand that they're trying to give people more options, but the game really is quite unforgiving to you when you're out of your metal shell.

Luckily, they don't make you do that TOO often, and if you can just grit and bear it through those parts, the rest of the game really does reward with a lot of destructions and stamping around through a variety of landscapes.

Still, I would really love for MechAssault 3 to focus more on the large mech battles, and perhaps just provide a stronger plot line, better voice acting, and a truly immersive mech world. That would be my Mech Dream.

3.0 out of 5 stars original Mech Assault was better. May 25, 2012
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I was excited to get this game since I loved the first Mech Assault so much, but single player mode does not live up to its predecessor. The boss fights, which were non-existant in Mech Assault, were pretty cool, and very difficult. The game play overall was harder, and especially the mortar. When you are in battle suit mode, you have a shoulder-mounted heavy mortar that is very difficult to aim, and in the final boss fight, you need to aim precisely with it.

Apparently this game really shines in when you are playing with other people online. There are not one, but TWO multiplayer modes. Unfortunately, I cannot get onto XBox live with a V1 X-Box, so I did not get to enjoy the multiplayer modes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun multiplayer, ok campaign. Works on 360! January 5, 2010
By Carol
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game because I heard great things about the original mechassault. i didnt buy the original because it doesnt work on the xbox 360. i have played the first before and i think that the first is way better than the second. In the first game, you could choose your mech before the mission. in the second you either start in a mech that you didnt choose, in some new battle armor that is almost useless against other mechs (besides a new hijacking feature that i'll get to later), or as a human. The part were you get to walk around as a human might sound coll but you are VERY weak and you walk around in a lot of missions. it get very annoying and kind of ruins some of the gameplay. you can also drive tanks but they cant do much against other mechs, only other tanks and helicopters. the battle armor is also annoying, it is also pretty weak and the only real thing you can do is hijack(they call it neurohack in the game) what you do is latch on to a mech and a little icon pops up telling you to press certain buttons. if can press all the buttons i tells you the mech falls over and you can get into it. IF you dont die before geting to the mech and it doesnt turn on sheilds. the multiplayer is really fun. i havent played on xbox live but on a local console. if you play team destruction(two teams fight against each other to get points) or any other team game you can get in VTOLS. if you dont know what VTOL stands for its like a hover craft ship thing. at each base there is a landing pad. there you can choose upgrades to drop off to your friends, upgrades for your VTOL and bombs. bombs are devastating against other mechs they can really help out your friends. over all it is a pretty good game. i gave it 4 stars because the campaign is fun but not great.
