Played MechWarrior 4 for the first time in about 8 years... It originally came out in 2002, I played it hard for a few months, but I doubt if I've touched it since then.

The graphics are, obviously, a bit dated. But that doesn't matter as much as it might in some other game... BattleMechs are big, chunky, robotic things; so it isn't like you're looking at poorly-rendered faces or anything like that. A blocky mech looks blocky no matter how nicely you render it.

It still runs fine. Better, in fact, since my computer is more than adequate to run it at the highest settings possible. I dug out my old USB flight stick and was delighted to discover that it still works fine.

I was wrong about the MekTek thing only having the Marauder II - it also has the classic Marauder. And it's just as kickass as I remembered.

I played through the first couple of missions... Did a couple instant action missions... Played around in the mechlab a bit...

Good stuff.

I wonder if there's still anyone playing multiplayer? I used to really enjoy CTF matches...
