Australian mech game

I think it was released last year. Something along the lines of Heavy Gear 2 more than Mechwarrior. Can't remember the title, but I seem to recall it getting decent reviews down under.

Any idea of what it's called? I can't believe I don't remember. It's pretty much the only PC mech game released since MW4:Mercs.

That's the one! Time has made it blossom a bit in my mind. It is single player, but nothing like Mechwarrior

I'll give the demo a go, though.

thanks

Its a pretty cool game. Plays alot like a slow UnrealT. I'm not keeping it though.

the amount of firepower you can unleash is very cool.

unfortunatly all I can play is bots though, all the demo servers are empty.

Unreal is a billion times faster than Metroid Prime. Metroid prime is as slow as Halo, but at least Metroid is a FPA and not a FPS.

He's probably played the console version of UT and not the hyper PC one.
