Computer Wargaming / He’ll Let Loose

Don’t get too excited about Post Scriptum.  This (He’ll Let Loose) is another game to consider.

I would be happy with just a rough estimate of its release. The game formula really clicks with me and has sparked interest in eras I never really had interest in before, like Alexander’s conquests and the Diadochi.

I don’t think a destructible environment is “fluff”. It’s about immersion. May not be important to some BUT, I can’t imagine why someone would develope a tactical combat game like this without it. I’m not saying it’s a sea-killer...just a questionable decision?

I’ve never been into turnbased tactical games so it’s no skin off my back either way

Finally, a review on RPS that reads like a review of a game rather than commentary on social injustice or gender inequality.

Hard to criticize the reviewers opinion here. I’m surprised to read that the environment doesn’t react to your mechs. Also, infantry, or some element of humanity on the ground would be great to show the scale and power of the mechs. Disappointed to see that isn’t there either.

Still hopeful.

When you say that the “environment doesn’t react”....does that mean that the environment is NOT destructible? No knocked over trees or craters? Not game breaking but in this day and age...why?

Well it wasn't in the beta and guess isn't now. Truly fluff though .... might be nice to look at but no material affect on the game.

Also was quite surprised to see  tanks were in fact in the game ... Though agree with JH infantry and other non mech equipment would have been awesome. DLC perhaps.

The RPS review was a little difficult to understand in that he seemed to say it was boring but then went on to talk about things it did well.

Still was a beta backer so reviews at this stage somewhat irrelevant anyhow. I played a bit and liked what I saw. Though think there is a lot they could add and hopefully they will.

Seemed like his biggest gripe was boredom caused by long delays in battle due to unit animation. I can see this getting frustrating over time and in larger engagements. What he likes seems to be the character and flavor of theame, which will have special appeal to fans of the IP and battletech universe. Seems to be exactly why strategy gamer loved it so much.

They won't kill you! Just break an arm or two!  >:D

Personally I would love it if they jumped a few centuries for the next one. Wolves from the sea or storm of arrows would be good.

that's just because they gave in and build it in preemptive, watch DasTactic's tutorial when it comes to character setup @14:10  :hide:

4 stars out of 5

It’s a game that invests heavily in a well-established universe and fails to be an entry point in that universe whatsoever.

That’s a shame because, between every mission, you can see how much thought has gone into shaping a narrative and world that’s so consistently and richly BattleTech.
But the takeaway is ultimately what you bring to the story rather than anything original. This is a fairly by-the-numbers tactics game that becomes ethereal if you have the right set of memories.
Being that I do, this is a game that I’ll cherish, for all its stompy clumsiness.
