    I loved the old Heavy Gear games. I hope they go with the 3rd person view like Tranformers War for Cybertron instead of another FPS. The Trasformers games style would work great here since the gears changes modes as well, so it would be easier to drive and shoot with a wider perspective on the battle field.

  • Ya! Great Canadian Game cant wait to give it a try (although the mini game will always come first for this kid!)
