How can any game simulate a Mech? They don't exist. The very concept is preposterous, and claiming that one game does a better job of "simulating" a walking war machine from a war on faraway worlds in the year 30XX is a very selective interpretation of reality.
As long as I've got a 75-ton walking tank, I'll take the hovering camera drone as a POV rather than suffering with the limited field of vision that goes along with looking through the transparent windshield of a cockpit.
You want a simulation? Cool. You get a MadCat. I'll take the M1A2 Abrams and put a hole right through you with a single 120mm cannon round from just over 2 miles away.
Don't ever use the word "simulator" and "mechwarrior" in the same post again.
Its funny to see how MW freaks would sacrifice the fun fragging gameplay of MA just to conform to their twisted concept of realism.
