Here’s another first-person mech game that was pretty good, though I still prefer Terra Nova.
So, name and developer, please! For bonus points, tell me the name and developer of the board game this was based off of!
This is Heavy Gear, developed and published by Activision in 1997, although it was almost 1998 if I rememebr correctly. I remember getting this game mixed up with G-Nome, and thinking it was terrible.
I played it a while back on a system that did not have a numpad, so I couldn’t really get into it, now I have been looking for my copy for a while… that is why I recognized it right away!
Correctamundo! Can you tell me what board game it was based off of? (Hint: the answer is pretty darn obvious.)
Battletech? Thats just a guess, but it seems the most obvious answer.
Nope, I was wrong. According to wikipedia, Heavy Gear is its own tabletop wargame, Cardgame, and cartoon series.
(…now I really want to find my copy of this game!)
Couldn’t pass on the Terra Nova reference!
There was a game with a landscape engine that fuelled the imagination. Views into the distance for miles, lakes… terra indeed!
Only surpassed by Outcast’s voxel engine when it came out, imo.
Glad I was a bit late to the party, almost mistook the screenie for Mechwarrior III.
I was going to guess G-Nome as well – awful game, but it had the cool feature of being able to hop out of your mech and walk around outside. Other than Mechwarrior Mercs (and a demo of G-Nome), I never did any of the mech sim games.
