Loved this game as a kid. It probably got the most play outside of D&D. I started out playing 1E, and always thought that best story line was the best.

What to say more then the rate I give it, and I'm still convinced that's to underrate it!!! I played it for years, adding components, mapshets, cenarios, campaigns, almost every facet of the game. It has from the basic ruleset up, to space battles, one-on-one duels, massive campaigns, RPG, you name it you have it. For something that isn't comissioned from a TV series or movie trilogy (or must I say bi-trilogy? LOL), it is amazing the number of products it spawned. With my group we explored almost all the possibilities. The universe is fantastic. It as a great felling, so much that when you are playing it you are doing more than just rolling the dice

Outstanding miniatures game. I first learned to play Battletech back in the 80s, and now am getting back into it. Collecting the miniatures and painting them. I also like the rules on creating your own mercenary group and running through a campaign. Excellent stuff! FANPRO has taken over the reigns from FASA and is running with the ball BIG TIME!

Superb set of miniatures rules. Great coponents, and reallly nice minis. Lots of support and a big BT community keep this game alive.

Although there looks like a lot of rules, I can get new players up and running in 5-minutes.

What can I say about this game that hasn't already been said?
The very first "serious" board/wargame I ever played, and it helped me learn English. For those who enjoy some fluff with their dice rolling, look no further...the number of novels in the Battletech universe could probably fill the sci-fi section at a bookshop.
I never tried the mech-building or RPG aspects of teh game, but I hear they add entirely new dimensions if you are willing to invest the brain sweat to figure out armor tables and the like.
The game has come a long way from being a simple one-box boardgame with robots stolen from japanimation programs...i highly suggest people try it...you can get free quickstart rules and counters from Fanpro...i dont think you will be disappointed.

I rate BattleTech the system as a 10 for me, after a long time (relatively speaking) of holding it at a 9. This game is, for me, at the pinnacle of war games. At its core a fairly simple system of giant fighty robots, it becomes far richer as you add in different types of combatants (vehicles, infantry, aerospace), different maps, different levels of rules, new equipment, and on and on. Couple the solid mechanics, evolved over 20+ years, with a vibrant (if derivative) fictional world, and you've got a lot of room to play. Games can be simple pickups between randomly chosen 'Mechs or "historical" battles drenched in optional/advanced rules, and it's good either way. The game also enjoys a fantastic level of official support from Catalyst and unofficial support from the game's extensive fan base.

Many of my comments on the game, a game that I like very much, are in the Introductory Box Set entry.

One of the first serious "gamer" games that I and my friends got into back in junior high and one that we still play to this day when given the chance. A good, solid, absorbing game, BT is just filled to the brim with so many cool little details.

ANY game where you can blow off a giant robot's arm and then pick it up and beat him over the head with it while at the same time trying to carefully balance how many of your weapons systems you fire off in an attempt to keep your nuclear powered engines from overheating to the point where all of your ammo starts going off like popcorn inside your armor is a GOOD game.

from my fist battlatech play, the first "combat" i saw was
roll --> 12 hit!
location --> 12 head!
critical roll --> 12 you die!
I love this game!!!
luck is very important, but with no strategy, there will be no enough 12 that will save you.

This can be a light game or a heavy game, and the more you play, the more intricate and neat the rules are. This game is set up very well, and the only downfall is the randomness of dice (but then how random is war?), which is offset by the modifiers. One of my first games ever played, and I enjoy it very much.

Simply the best science fiction tactical warfare game around. Nothing else compares to the options available in this game. The many eras available in the Battletech timeline allow players to experiment with old as well as new tech and see the different effects that this has on the battlefield.

My only complaint is the lack of small scenarios (4 or less Mechs) as the larger more common 8 or more Mech scenarios take far too long to play.

Hmmm, I can't believe I've forgotten to list this on the Geek. I've been a BattleTech player since first edition. A little clunky by today's standards, but still a game that's close to my heart. It can only be rated a 10 in my books.

I don't think I could rate this anything but a 10. The wealth of detail, the richness of the experience, the excitement of the battles, the persistent campaigns, the long and serious discussions, the entire setting and history committed to memory, the friendships. Good friendships.

Battletech was really a game I got to know on it's own merits. There's a lot to be said for that and I wish it were more feasible these days, as I do my best to navigate a glut of games.

Battletech is the seminol game that introduced a generation to wargaming. Long beofre Warhammer 40,ooo, Battletech had geeks duking it out across tables and in basements.

This game is still one of my favorites. The baic rules are easy to get into and hold countless replay options, while add-ons make the entire spectrum of warfare come alive.

Battletech is a game for people tired of simplistic wargame systems such as Warhammer, but not looking to get into deeply realistic rules.
