MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat takes place in 3057, where there is a power struggle between two clans: Clan Wolf and Clan Jade Falcon. In this game, the player controls mechs, which are giant robots controlled by humans. When the player begins the game, they must choose one of the two clans they want to represent.

MechWarrior 2 does take some getting used to if no joystick is involved, as several keys that need to be memorized. Therefore, we recommend using a joystick, preferably the Microsoft Sidewinder joystick, as it has the swivel action, which can be frequently used in the game.
