Mechwarrior 2 Mercenaries

The mother of all space combat sims!! Texture mapped 3D graphics are a step up from its predecessors, and still retaining thhe incredible gameplay that sold so many copies of this game.
You get to play a mercenary selling his/her skills to the highest bidder. Missions are varied and balanced, but I feel that I'm being dragged through a fixed storyline. Nonetheless, the game is great fun, despite some annoying bugs.
