I don't have high expectations for this game. It seems kind of dated. Shooting mechanics seem old and the facial animations are lackluster as well. The game seems very generic in all ways except for the mechs. Story seems uninteresting and the artstyle isint stand out. A game we'd probably see back in the ps2 era. Among the other games coming out Q1 this game doesn't stand much of a chance sales-wise.
I think the artstyle is fine, and not enough for me to say one way or the other about the story. The game play looks like it might be up my alley, being a little dated isn't necessarily bad. But yeah there is no hype at all for this game, I definitely agree that sales will tank. I kind of want to buy it just to throw my support for a new Front Mission game, but on the fence about it.
