    I've questions on Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries.

    1. Does this game requires the first, original Mechwarrior 4 (2000) to play ?

    2. I heard that it is lacking in the graphic department. To those who has played the game, what's your opinion ? Is it near Max Payne's ?

    Personally I enjoyed playing Vengeance but haven't tried out any of the XP's.. the graphics could have been better but I imagine future MW games will be optimized for DX9 and much better graphics.. heck, if you can find a chaep used copy go grab it..

    not sure about needing the original to play the XP's though..

    I've bought IT. The graphic is so-so but it works great with my 64 MB Geforce 2 MX ...

    from what i've heard, MW4: Merc's is a standalone expansion, meaning you don't need the original MW4: Vengeance. not exactly sure about it though.

    Yes. It doesn't need the original game.

    Heres the deal,
    Mercs is a stand alone game and does not need anything else.

    however if you install the Clan and Inner Sphere packs you will have more mechs and weapons.
    (warning) (installing those packs will also install Cdilla on your machine.)
