5.0 out of 5 stars Mech Commander Gold January 11, 2000
By marcos
Mech Commander the original version was a good enough game, but Mech Commander Gold offers some much welcomed improvements. The original game offers explosive real time action mixed with the need for a cunning stratigic mind as you command up to twelve 'mechs in real time combat. After missions, you repair your mechs and claim salvage with which to plan the next mission. Also, you can purchase new 'Mechs or more experienced pilots to control them. The values of the Gold add-on are new missions, six new 'Mechs an excellent ammo-conservation mode (this alone warrents purchasing Gold) and a nifty waypoint system. All in all I'd say Mech Commander Gold is one of the most enjoyable Mech games on the market. Add to this a large network of Multiplayer Leagues, and the fun continues as you engage in combat with Mech Warriors from around the globe.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Thoughts January 18, 2004
even though this game will never quite be able to grab the top spot of my favorive RTS game it comes very close on many levels.
Now I like Red Altert and Red Alert 2 more than I like this game but thats not to say that this game is bad, you have to get up preety early in the mroning to get the drop on those 2.
In fact Mechcommander: Gold should be perfect for those people who don't want to waste time building up a strongly fortified base and just want to go doestory stuff.
(With glourious Special Effects and great sound)
That may not be my style but I can relate and if this game sounds like something you might even be remotly interested in I would highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've played the original... May 4, 2000
...and it totally kicks a**, however the game play can be very difficult and take a while to get through. That's not neccessarily a bad thing though, too many times these days games can be beaten in a weeks times. So it's nice to have a game I can keep returning to and continue my challenge. If the 'Gold' is the same as the original only better than you'll be pleased with it for sure. I play on a 450hz AMD-K2 ProStar laptop w/ only 4mb of video power and the graphics are still awesome.

4.0 out of 5 stars The hardest game you'll ever love September 14, 2004
By Bryan
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Oh, how I love this game, one of the most underrated RTS games I've played. Underrated because the original version of the game had major problems, and because the second game in the series seals the series' doom (it isn't very good).

I haven't played the original MechCommander (non-Gold) game. Apparently, complaints were aimed mostly at the interface and the fact that it was too hard, and there were no artillery strikes. As artillery strikes are my favorite single aspect of the game, I would recommend that you avoid the original and only get MechCommander Gold, but be warned: This is a hard game! Winnable, but hard. One reason is that there is no in-game saveability. Like the original Rainbow Six game, you play through from one scenario to the next with no way to save mid-game. However, there are some strategic tools you can use that most games don't afford. One is pausing the game. You can view different parts of the map, issue commands to 'Mechs and even send artillery strikes, all while the game is paused. You'll need to use this. Another strategic ace is the refit truck. If you have a refit truck available and it's a hard level, you'll do fine. The ability to restore damaged 'Mechs in-game with a refit truck is as close to cheating as you can get.

Some of the highpoints of the game:

Strategy. There is actual thought and timing required to win, whether it's scouting with a light, jump-able 'Mech with long range radar or just rolling through en masse, or burning your way through a forest to avoid bad guys. This is pure combat, no resource gathering and such like most RTS games where the economics are far more important in determining the winner than military might.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best BattleTech-Strategy game yet! March 3, 2000
This game is an excellent improvement over MechCommander. Not only are there new commands and weapons, there are 6 new 'mech chassis, 12 new missions, all of the old campaigns, and a mission editor ALL on one disk! Using the mission editor, you can design missions to play with others in multiplayer. The ultimate strategy game for everyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars In the eye of the beholder August 23, 2000
By Ferris
I love this game. It has a mission editor and believe it is far richer than Mech Commander, since it allows you to create new scenarios. But I must tell you, I am in the minority as far as Mech Commander players go. In a way they are right. With the mission editor hackers are able to gain access far more easily and create invincible mechs and reak all kinds of havoc. The main problem is the creators never addressed the bugs in the game; they went straight into production of MechCommander 2 which to me is a sin. I guess the only Gold in MCgold is in their pockets. If these people cared at all for their audience they would have addressed some of the problems in gold. (And they should do so in the future!) They should make some sort of patch which makes any hacking impossible, at least to those who have the patch, and should have dealt with the jump cheat as well. You see many people who play Mech Commander play it in leagues, just as other people play pool, darts, bowl, etc. It is imperitive cheating is something which can be caught easily or it destroys the fun for those people whose free time revolves around these games. All said and done with more people are laying Mech Commander than Gold, simply because it is harder to cheat. I prefer this game though, only wishing the creators had dealt with the bugs instead of just leaving it there for us, imperfect, with all its flaws, and not dealing with them.
