One Must Fall: 2097 box cover

One Must Fall: 2097 screenshot
One of the BEST fighting games ever made. Period. When it first came out the response on the action newsgroup comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.action was overwhelmingly positive, despite garnering virtually no attention in the gaming magazines. Pick your trusty mech and enter the many competitions to win fame and fortune. Numerous upgrades to your mech can be had for a price, and the ability to improve your own character, RPG-style, is a nice touch. Now I'm *not* an action gamer, but this game did keep me hooked for hours. Two thumbs up for this underdog, a proud entrant in our Hall of Belated Fame.

Note: To cheers of fans worldwide, One Must Fall: Battlegrounds is in the works! See how this great-looking sequel is shaping up in the related link below :)
