HG was like the opposite of MW you had sleek robots smaller the mech's but faster at everything else, you could walk or even drive around with skates. It probably felt more like classic Gundam in a can, unlike MW looks were not the major thing here you didn't need twenty meter cactus on stilts to fire rockets. You tore through battlefield in a machine that felt like it was designed for warfare, not some silly bulk moving around with a pea shooter and gauging armor and hull damage like a bad game of Battleship.

The easiest way to run this game today is to search on YouTube for "PC 586 Pentium Emulator and Windows 98 with Games" and click "Show More" to see the links the poster provided to download a working PCEm copy from Google Drive. You can install Heavy Gear I or II on this PCEm emulator and they run perfectly.

The best way to play Heavy Gear I and II today is to use a PCEm emulator and install HG on the virtual machine. Worked great for me. I got a head start by downloading the PCEm emulator from here - -

Activision was the king of mech games in the mid 90s. I wish they had developed elements of this ones gaming engine into mechwarrior 2 mercenaries. Mostly there external camera mode has target reticle making it kind of playable in third person . We will call it limited 3rd person lol but still if this had come up out just a little sooner . Or if activision hadnt lost the title.

Tried to get both the rip and ISO running but they keep saying DLL files are missing and the 1.2 patch crashes the game on start. Is there no way to play this game outside of a VM?
