Harebrained Schemes, the developer behind Necropolis and the Shadowrun series, is launching their newest game today titled "BattleTech." Set in the year 3025, BattleTech has players controlling large mechs in an XCOM-like turn-based strategy game. With a small group of mercenary Mechs and MechWarriors, players attempt to upgrade their battalion, improve their base, and eliminate their opponents.
The first wave of reviews have just arrived, putting the game at a 'Mighty' 84.
Here are some of the reviews. You can see them all here.
Chris Thursten, PC Gamer, 85 / 100 (link):
A deep tactical wargame with strong fundamentals supporting a broadly successful campaign system.
Ron Burke, Gaming Trend, 95 / 100 (link)
BattleTech represents the perfect culmination of all of [Harebrained Schemes'] previous works, and the team should be proud of how well it all came together.

A compelling fusion of tabletop manoeuvring and characterful campaign progression
