13.jpg_1Hands down the best MechWarrior so far.

Few series can match the raw emotive fun of the MechWarrior line. There’s a singular joy derived from driving 100-ton bipedal monsters bristling with all sorts of missiles and guns. The story behind MechWarrior 4 is the typical fodder for such a game – your royal family has been brutally murdered, and its rule over your home planet usurped by a tyrannical clan. What better excuse do you need to lead a small rebel force of MechWarriors on a rampage of vengeance?

At its core, this is a MechWarrior game, and a great one at that. You can destroy just about everything you see, and much of it simply by driving your Mech over or through it. Trees splinter into a million toothpicks under your Mech’s metal feet. Tanks, trucks, cars, tents, huts, and small buildings are reduced to rubble in your wake, in that unique ground-shaking, dust-kicking, footprint-leaving impact a  BattleMech has on a neighborhood.

And you’ll wreak havoc in some extremely beautiful and realistic game environments throughout the course of the campaign’s 30-plus missions, spread across 15 diverse game maps (alpine, desert, swamp, urban, lunar, etc). Through these locations you’ll get to take 21 of them out for the ultimate test drive — and six are brand-new to the series. The heavy assault Mad Cat Mark II is the pick of the newcomers; it’s a bigger and badder version of one of the most popular Mechs ever. And the medium Uziel, with its dual PPCs, is an all-around warrior’s dream.

6_1Regardless of size, all the Mechs are a blast to drive and destroy with, thanks to a slick heads-up display that gives you all the necessary information – damage, ammo, weapon status, torso orientation – at a glance, and a slick control scheme requiring minimal use of the keyboard. (You will need a decent joystick with a throttle control and/or rudder control option, however). And, a brief-yet-comprehensive training tutorial is available to help prevent new Mech recruits from crashing and burning on their first time out.

New weapons include the Long Tom Cannon, which is basically a long-range artillery gun you can strap to your Mech, and the Bombast Laser, which takes some skill to use but can be more lethal than other energy weapons. As always, you can choose your Mech, and outfit it prior to embarking on a mission in the Mechlab, which with its simple drag and drop configuration is as simple as ever to use.

If you’re new to the series, this is a good start. MechWarrior 4 takes and improves the winning combination of action and tactics from past games, and bundles it an a fun, explosive package.

    This game is very addictive. Even though a few missions are very hard and can be frustrating. It’s playable with mouse + keyboard. Thanks for sharing.

    Hey i downloaded directly off the “old pc games” website and it downloaded no issues, extracted the files, no issues then when i tried to open the Mechwarrior 4 vengeance app and Black Knight EXPAN app both apps said file couldnt be opened and language.dll file was not found, Im an semi-Amateur computer guy and i was like da hell is this, cuz i just spent over 2 hours trying to find Vengeance and blacknight to just download and play i have mercs runs just fine…. help please i dont wanna find out i just wasted my time

  5. buy an old computer or use the xp virtual machine found here. i took the trouble of testing it and it works under it. i assume you know how to install the game since the instructions are included and bullet pointed. as for running the game or not, it depends on you. i took the screenshots myself under the version that i linked here

  6. Anton says:

    I get some strange error
    EXCEPTION : Attempt to read from NULL in MW4! (+0x246EB9)
    no idea what it is or how to fix it, it happens whenever I go to the mechlab as far as I’ve tryed

  7. Anton says:

    also I have win xp sp3 machine and I get that error on instant action as well so pretty much nothing works expect for the trainin mission

  8. install the demo and see if that works. maybe try to patch the game? don’t know really

  9. Anton says:
