BattleTech for PC has strong gameplay and a surprisingly impressive story, but it is held back by numerous performance flaws.
BattleTech is one of the oldest franchises in gaming, with its roots in the original BattleTech tabletop role-playing game (RPG). Titles like MechWarrior and MechAssault have adapted the universe to the shooter genres, but none of the franchise’s video games have been similar to the tabletop version. With the latest game on PC, BattleTech, that changes.
Featuring turn-based, tactical gameplay, and a strong narrative, BattleTech ticks all the boxes for it to be a strong addition to the franchise it shares a name with. However, it’s plagued with performance problems, and getting the game to run smoothly is impossible.
