Oh, there's a thread like this?
After caving in and installing Steam a while ago, I decided to give Hawken a try because it had always seemed like a cool game. Huge disappointment! I can't even customize my mech (without paying, or playing a lot), not to mention use different mechs. And it's nothing more than a basic arena shooter? With small, close-quarters, limited environments (forcefield walls everywhere)?
Because of that disappointment, I figured I'd give MWO a try. I've only really played it once so far, and it was miles more satisfying than Hawken, even though I still don't know if I have any better chances of customizing my mech or if the interface will start making sense eventually. At least it feels like I'm piloting a mech, as opposed Hawken in which I'm a generic arena shooter dude with a jetpack that just happens to look like a mech.
