"The visuals throughout Mechwarrior are expertly drawn, with full CGA, EGA and Tandy 16 graphics modes support. The sim's filled vectors move along at a fair pace even on an 8Mhz baby. The worst aspect of the audio are the appalling soundtracks that crop up during the game. Mechwarrior will no only appeal to fans of the board game, but also deserves a look from any self-respecting role-game or simulation player." - ACE Magazine
