It has left the strategy format behind and adopted an action-oriented, third-person mechanic, which may not appeal to long-time fans of the series. But perhaps even they will be cheered by what they see in this new developer diary; the designers are definitely putting a lot of effort into this project. And besides, we can always use a top-quality mech title, primarily because they so often come out clunky and frustrating. Provided Double Helix gets it right, Front Mission Evolved ought to be pretty darn cool.
