When a terrorist attack destroys one of the USC's prized orbital elevators, the military is mobilized to eliminate the threat. Dylan Ramsey, a young engineer, finds himself quickly caught in a swirl of destruction, conspiracies and crumbling alliances. Experience his story in this high-octane third-person shooter.

Front Mission Evolved transforms the classic Front Mission franchise into an action-packed third-person shooter that gives players full control of a massive humanoid, fully customizable war machine-the Wanzer, in single player campaign and online multi-player.

Featuring Hollywood style production values and a totally immersive storyline, Players are thrust deep into a swirl of destruction, conspiracy and crumbling alliances. Battle through intense combat situations in a host of unique locations as man strives to create the ultimate humanoid fighting machine in a war against terror!

* Third-Person Shooter Action: Fast-paced action awaits as players battle enemies in the concrete mazes of cities, the frozen wastes of the Antarctic and a host of unique locations. Master the speed, firepower and adaptability of the multi-purpose wanzer in order to ensure survival and success
* Customization Options: Players can choose from dozens of weapons, shoulder attachments, and wanzer parts to build a war machine that suits their play style. Weapons range from standard-issue machine guns to high-powered rifles. Heavy hitters like shoulder-mounted rocket launchers can also be fitted to cause widespread destruction. Specialized wanzer leg parts are also available, granting the player optimal mobility on any type of terrain. And there are many more options, allowing for hundreds of different combinations!
* Online Multiplayer: When done trashing enemies in-game, a whole new world of online play awaits. Players can go it alone or in teams, testing their skills in battle against other players with their own, highly customized wanzers. Use strategy and teamwork and show them who's best!

Very hot. I'm a huge fan of mecha games but the fact this is made by American Developers and not Japanese (without playing the xenophobia card) means it's unlikely to be a particularly decent game.

Could be in for a surprise though!

I loved 3 and 4. I have no idea why they changed it to an FPS... this price isn't very encouraging either as it smacks of them knowing it's bad and isn't going to sell in advance.

Ordered, Wonder why it's so cheap? Anyway i'll watch the news develop on this and cancel if I get cold feet.

Agreed, this is most discouraging

The bright side is, that it seem that only Zavvi are heavily discounting at the moment, so it might simply mean it's a great special offer.

Loved Messiah & Sacrifice games from these guys back in 2000 =D

Thanks ordered. Cannot see any other retailers getting anywhere near that price for pre order. Zavvi are truely great. Hopefully Zavvi will continue to do this

aww man, really not sure if i should order this. Just not really front missions is it? Why fps?

They have done this with good games they changed Borderlands to this before release i got it for 17.99 and 3 days before it him the shops and that was a great game have faith!

amazing price! cheers

Famitsu has given the game a 30/40:

"The reviewers were a bit rougher on Front Mission Evolved, the new PS3/360 take on Square Enix's long-running robot combat series. The game received two 8's and two 7's for 30 points and a Silver reward, with both complaints and praise for its gameplay brought up in the review text. "It's a pretty orthodox third-person shooter set in the Front Mission world," one editor said. "The boost function gives your Wanzer a burst of high speed you can't get with normal motion, which has an exhilarating effect. My main complaint is the boss battles, which mostly involve replenishing your ammunition and picking up recovery items that show up at regular intervals. I wonder if there's just not enough excitement to them." "

So around 7/10 which is ok by me especially at this price and considering how much I enjoy the world of Front Mission.

Famitsu can be hit and miss though, they gave a perfect score for Bayonetta which was ok/good but not that good!

Good price, but I reckon generous 6/10 reviews await this game.
It looks like a PS2 game at slightly higher resolution.

its dark void 2 lol in that it will be given away with a box of weetabix by crimbo.

Looks a bit like mechassault reborn to me. Which is fine by me!

Got mine delivered today.

Gonna take it straight to CEX tomorrow as it's awful.
