 SALE Front Mission 4 [In Stock, PS2-ASIAN] US$68.98

NCS Product Synopsis

Update: December 16, 2003
«©NCSX» Front Mission 4 is set in a timeline between the first Front Mission game (2090) and the second (2102) so it's a prequel of sorts. Six years after the events in the original Front Mission game, two characters united by fate named Daril and Elsa are the new protagonists in a new storyline. Daril is a Wanzer driver with a bad attitude and Elsa is in research. Together, the two form a formidable and unlikely team.

   The United States of the New Continent (USN) and the Euro Continent (EC) are at it again and the machines of war are 18-foot mech-robos bristling with heavy artillery. Overly dramatic cinemas in Front Mission 4 seem almost cheesy... but this is Square, they can't be cheesy (can they?). Outside of the theatrics, the game is impressive with tactical battles where Wanzers at your command shoot or punch enemy soldiers at your behest. There's a movement phase and then an action phase - when firing away at an opposing unit, shots spray the hull of the mecha and little numbers will pop up everywhere which tally the damage each part has taken. For example, damage the mech's punching hand to the point of no return and it won't be able to attack at close range anymore. Destroy the weapon on it's shoulder and that's one less offensive weapon that you'll have to worry about. Square touts battlefield maps that are 10X the size of those found in Front Mission 3, which should make for some expansive missions and episodes.

   Like previous Front Mission games, Wanzer armor and weaponry may be adjusted and upgraded to higher levels of performance. The complete exo-skeleton of a wanzer may be bolstered and upgraded - from the left shoulder to the right arm to the backpack to the left hand... you get the idea. Color preferences for Wanzers may also be chosen to suit your whimsy along with a dizzying array of weaponry choices. Similar to previous games in the series, the menus are mostly in English which makes upgrading mecha fairly easy and the speech in the game is also in English.

Region Lock-out
