One of the most underappreciated games of all time. And one of the greatest gaming experiences of my life. Don't look at steam playing hours, I bought it here because I lost my old GFWL-based key.
Gameplay-wise it's a pinnacle of japanese TPS, e.g. alien planet, twisted story, global conflict, evil (or, of course, not so evil) megacorporation, tons of weapons, mecha war machines (not just to look at, to ride!), adrenaline-packed boss fights with enormous bosses, 4 player co-op for all this meat(!!!).
Music-wise... I have no words. Ah, wait no. I have some. Gorgeous. One of the best game soundtracks I've ever listened to, performed by full-blown symphonic orchestra.
How comes it's so underestimated then, you ask me? Blame GFWL (Games for Windows Live), the platform always was a puddle of mud and it still ruins some nerve cells (because it's still in the game so you should technically activate your game twice using notorious Miscrosoft user-friendliness, good luck with that). Also blame ♥♥♥♥ty Capcom PR campaign for PCs at the time.
Ah, but anyway, I am so jealous about you guys who never played it and will do this for the first time. See ya on E.D.N.III!
