With the destruction of the Smoke Jaguar Clan and the abatement of the Clan threat to the Inner Sphere, veteran warrior and estranged noble Ian Dresari returns to his home world, Kentares IV, the site of the bloodiest massacre in the history of the Inner Sphere, only to find that yet another massacre is occurring. His cousin, a puppet loyal to the conquering Lyran Alliance forces, has slain his family and tried to place the world under the rulership of House Steiner. Now Ian is in the lead of a rebel group intent on taking out the pro-Steiner forces on Kentares IV, by any means necessary. Written by Miriani

Did You Know?


The engine for this game was derived from the engine that was intended for Mechwarrior III, but it was not ready for the release of that game. Zipper Interactive developed a new engine for Mechwarrior III, and the original engine was heavily modified and used for Mechwarrior IV and expansions. See more »

Could have been better without the FMV scenes
31 January 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Already one can see where the rot in the series started once it was in Micro$oft's hands. One can't help but think that Micro$oft spent more of the budget on the FMV scenes and actors rather than the game itself.

Seriously, the acting is bad. Way bad. Think of all those B-Grade movies. The fact that pratically every mission has FMV cut scenes with the actors is torture. Unfortunately, you have to listen and watch the FMV scenes in order to get the mission objectives.

The game itself is fairly alright. You get all the previous mech action you had from previous titles. The game trusts you in the roll of the last surviving member of a ruling family and you must fight against great odds to retrieve your right to the ruling throne.

I think much more could have been done with the game if they completely did not do the FMV scenes and spent the money on the engine, game play and the soundtrack. Especially the soundtrack, which is a gigantic step back from the previous titles. Think 'M16-rifles-to-stone-spears' kind of step back.
