Adhesive Games recently released a video gameplay walkthrough for Hawken. If you're into fast-paced FPS games then Hawken is right up your alley. However, if you like tactical paced, team-based, heavy-mech games then you'll want to check out Piranha Games' MechWarrior Online.
The free-to-play title is part of Infinite Game Publishing's line-up of new free-to-play MMOs that give gamers high-quality gaming experiences without all the high-end entry costs.
The other highlight for MechWarrior Online is that the game has some really sexy visual effects, but I guess gamers wouldn't expect anything less from the CryEngine 3. Check it out below.
I really like the pace of the game...or rather, the pace of the gameplay that was on display in the video footage. There's really no telling exactly how the game will play out in the final form, but from what has been on display so far it looks very tactical.
With class roles playing a big part in how victory is attained, it will be fascinating to see how guilds evolve and grow based on this aspect of the gameplay.
Given all the other technical facets of the game it also makes me curious if you can still disable specific parts of a mech in combat. That was always a fascinating aspect to the older MechWarrior games.
