An excellent game, with an excellent soundtrack.
x-file-1 from Netherlands
10 July 2005
One of the first games I bought for the PC, 31st Century Combat is THE
game that sparked my love for anything Battletech related, and game
soundtracks. Fighting as a Clan Mechwarrior, you battle a rival clan
for the fate of the Inner Sphere. Although the eventual outcome of the
conflict has no basis in Battletech literature, it does give you a good
impression of Clan life.
In between missions, players are treated to a wealth of information
which is based on the Battletech novels and source books. Add to that
an extensive library in the Clan archives which players can access in
the main Clan Hall, and no new-comer to the series can ever complain
about the fact that they have no clue as to what this game is all
I must note that the soundtrack, by Jeehun Hwang and Gregory Alper, is
a true masterpiece, and won an award for best soundtrack. The
soundtrack can be played on a regular CD player, which was kind of a
novelty at the time. I still play the music on my iPod.
All in all, a superb game.
