Question [The Fifth Horseman] MechCommander

Morning everyone, all the best for ya,

I've been looking for an old game but the problem is that I can't remember the name. Please help me to find it, or just telling me the name, it's okay. Here are some descriptions for the game:

- The time I played this game was about 10 years ago, so I guess it was published then or sooner

- The game play is, pretty much, like Warcraft (I guess it's called 3rd person view point, or something like that...) but instead of soldiers or magicians, we are going to control robots to fight from one place to another

- Most of the missions, we win if we've destroyed or captured all enemy robots, except for some missions, we have to do something else

- For every mission, the game allow only a certain number of robots. We can pick less than that number, but not more

- Before we get into the battlefield (I think this feature of the game is why I liked this game), we will be at the hangar to prepare, and we have a list of robots, a list of pilots to control those robots, and a list of weapons to equip them as well. In order to have the best results in the battles, we need to choose the suitable pilots and weapons for our robots.

- We can either destroy, or capture enemy robot by using some special kinds of weapon to shut them down so that they will stop fighting

- If our robot was broken, the pilot can use the ejection seat to fly back to the base, waiting for rejoining the battles in the next mission

That's the most of it. I can't remember nothing more than that. If anyone know this game please tell me.

Thank you all in advance!

The closest matches:
http://www.mobygames.com/game-group/cyberstorm-series
http://www.mobygames.com/game/window...l-warring-suns

These are not exactly what you describe, but fairly similar:
http://www.mobygames.com/game/power-dolls
http://www.mobygames.com/game-group/...mmander-series

Can't find much about this one: http://www.thelegacy.de/Museum/game.php3?game_id=6906

Yes thank you very much The 5th Horseman, Mech Commander IS exactly what I've been looking for. I think the version I played was Mech Commander Gold. Thanks again!

I think we've got archives for both MechCommanders in the queue. Not sure if anyone signed up for reviewing them though.

Didn't you mention something about removing the movies once and I told you not to remove the movies of the pilots because they were rather critical to good play?

I already have 2 games I'm supposed to review. But that's only when I'll have time and will be willing to do it. Taking another game for review would not really be responsible... But once I finish those reviews I have queued I'll definitely look into doing a review for MechCommander.
