Mecha Ace: Heroes of the Vedrian War Impressions and Review

 

Mecha Ace

Basic Premise: In Mecha Ace: Heroes of the Vedrian War, you pilot a Space Robot of Doom and command your squad during a galactic war for independence.

Positives

  • Paul Wang, the author, has written a long, self-contained story with a proper denouement.

  • I’m not particularly drawn to robots, lasers, or militaristic science fiction, but the plot and the variety of attitudes your character can express absorbed me. My favorite play-through was an incredibly persuasive, rather violent commander who would fall to pieces when pressured.

  • All the stats impact the story. I was still surprised at some of the outcomes on the fourth play-through.

  • The secondary characters feel distinct. Each one has his/her own values and has no problem disagreeing with you and refusing a friendship or romance. Awesome. Also the commanding officer and other tertiary characters have some lovely lines if you ask idiotic questions. Role-play a moron and prepare to smirk.

Negatives

  • A few misspelled words and a couple of coding lines appear in the story.

Overall: Recommended. I played the game four times and still have choice combinations I want to explore.  Give the sample a try.

Choice of Games’ Mecha Ace: Heroes of the Vedrian War is available on iOS, Andriod, Kindle, and Google Chrome.
