Front Mission Evolved is a third-person action game that focuses on mech battles and gives the players the opportunity to control a machine that is basically a two-legged walking tank. Although the developers initially planned Front Mission Evolved as a strategy game, they ultimately decided to make it an action title. FME retains the atmosphere of the original Front Mission series that began on the SNES gaming console.
The action takes place in 2171. The world's superpowers fight an endless war using cutting-edge technologies. Although all countries are ultimately trying to conquer outer space by placing more satellites in the orbit, there are still battles to be fought on the Earth's surface. Armies of the world, taught by experience, employ advanced robots called Wanderpanzers (in short: Wanzers) in combat, and the streets of big metropolises have become the most common battlefield.
Contrary to the series' general gameplay premise, the battles are fought in real time. The game is characterized by a heavy, industrial atmosphere and futuristic cinematic cutscenes. Front Mission Evolved offers impressive visuals with a great number of special effects. Apart from the single player campaign, FME features also a multiplayer mode.
