If the developers had taken a little more time in development, improved the graphics, scripts, and iron out ubiquitous bugs, it could have been a really good game. Maybe even a hit. Meanwhile, I do not even know whether to recommend Front Mission Evolved or not. In my opinion, the game is worth it to give her a chance. But rather on some good sale, at a fairly low price as this is neither Front Mission nor Armored Core.
Front Mission Evolved was misjudged. As a spin-off of the S-RPG franchise, the very purpose of the game is to offer a different experience using the Front Mission universe (Well it doesn't use the universe of the other games but still, it's a game about a war where mechas called Wanzer are used). Front Mission Evolved is a solid third person shooter with good music and decent visuals. The story could have been better but it's still likeable. Sure it is different (But not much more than the appreciated Front Mission Gun Hasard) but it didn't deserve this treatment.
The first front mission game looked to be a good entry into a genre. Sadly it resorted to a cash cow. With numerous multiplayer dlc for a game without anyone playing in multiplayer, the game defeats itself. sure, the gameplay can be fun at times- but its no fun when the core game play resolves around human players. And as of right now, no one is playing it. The story mode will keep you interested for a few hours...but even then, the story is generic.
Not at all like the original Front Mission game, Front Mission Evolved is a fairly generic and tedious game with horrible voice acting that repeats often with drawn out boss battles and poor combat. Do not buy unless you 100% have to play a mech game and even then, consider other options.
The soundtrack is beautiful Front Mission Evolved. For this part I have to take your hat off. Fully orchestral, as it should be in a game with this theme, in my opinion, it is often possible to animate the player on the moment that possibly would be boring. The opening song is beautiful, with an air that the military has everything to do with the game. Throughout the game are accompanied by songs that help us play, literally. Beautiful compositions that accompany the rhythm of the action, so wonderful. conclusion Front Mission Evolved could have been an infinitely better game. He ends up becoming, however, just another shooter in the third person. It lacked a personality to the game, and more attention to this last factor could have resulted in a fantastic game. It's a fun game, however, despite the flaws, but not impressive.
