Classic Game Room reviews FRONT MISSION 5 for the Japanese Playstation 2 PS2 video game console. CGR gives an in depth, multi-part review of Front Mission 5 showing gameplay and footage from the game. This turn based strategy game involving giant robot mecha is only available as a Japanese game with Japan only language and region encoding. CGR has a Japanese PS2 to play Thunder Force 6, well, here's another winner on the PS2 from our friends overseas (who screwed us over again!). FM5 seems to play like Front Mission 4 except with higher quality animations, graphics, fluidity and directing of the motion video anime sequeneces. If you enjoyed FM3 and FM4 and can score a Japan region PS2 this game should feel very familiar to you even if you can't read any of it. The menu structure is similar, the combat is turn based and awesome and the giant robots kick so much butt it isn't funny. Watch as huge mechs stomp cities and other robots into oblivion and cause billions of dollars in property damage. The gameplay is similar to Final Fantasy Tactics and other turn based games from Squaresoft and Square Enix, however CGR thinks the style of the game is 2nd to none. Far better than Front Mission 4 in many ways, except for that lack of English dialog and menu text. Classic Game Room reviews American and Japanese releases for new and classic video game consoles. CGR is a retro reviewer who also reviews newest releases for PS3 and Xbox 360 and Japanese PS2 reviews. We do not have Japanese to English translation for the text or dialog for Front Mission 5... but wish we did!
