Critic Reviews for FRONT MISSION 2: Remake

The combat kept us from enjoying Front Mission 2: Remake due to its over-reliance on dice-roll luck to succeed, but the plot has some decent story beats if you aren't bothered by obvious localisation errors. We did enjoy the customisation options of the Wanzers, but battles felt slow and dull when the RNG gods weren't on our side. Just like with the first game, this one will service longtime fans of the series and its combat adequately if they can overlook this remake's rough edges.

A rough localization and some familiarly frustrating RNG-related issues bog it down, but Front Mission 2: Remake is probably worth the headaches overall.

The exterior is old and rusty, but where it counts, the machine has the integrity to win the war.

Front Mission 2: Remake holds up better than the original game, and while it still occasionally remains an exercise in frustration, it's a compelling and genuinely entertaining experience a lot more, and merits a recommendation to at least genre and series fans.

With a bit more time, perhaps a better translation will get patched in and maybe a port for the more powerful consoles will iron out its technical shortcomings. Anyone who desires a demanding and complex strategy mecha game with political intrigue and a plot that predicts the dangers of globalism will get their money’s worth with Front Mission 2: Remake.

After decades of anticipation, the tactical jRPG war gem about combat robots finally makes its debut in the West in a remastered version. A tempting proposition for Nintendo Switch owners that is worth giving in to.

Although the first game received a more substantial upgrade, FRONT MISSION 2: Remake is still a must-have SRPG for fans of the genre and at its core; it remains the superior of the 2 titles despite some minor missteps with the update. 🤖

In some ways Front Mission 2: Remake is an improvement on the first game’s remake. It looks better, and the gameplay has a bit more depth and complexity, even if it isn’t a significant upgrade. In the end, though, I actually had more fun with that original title, thanks to a more compelling story and far better localization. It’s nice that Front Mission 2 is finally officially available in English, but this is still much more a remaster than a remake.
