Mechs, je kent ze wel, die hele grote robots wiens bestuurders het liefst enorme explosies veroorzaken.

De guys van Computer Games Online hebben een preview gemaakt van Mechcommander II van microsoft en waren wel te spreken over het geheel.

In addition to in-mission saves and more realistic line of sight rules, MechCommander 2 will allow you to issue orders while paused, giving more contemplative commanders a chance to think things through before wading into battle. You'll want to think before you act, too, because you'll want to insure that your MechWarriors live long and destructive lives. Gitelman even goes so far as to describe his game as partly a role-playing adventure. "One of the things that sets MechCommander 2 apart from other games is that your units are a combination of a MechWarrior and his BattleMech."

Hopelijk hoeven we niet al te lang wachten op dit toppertje.

Hier is in ieder geval de preview te lezen.
