    I'm getting a Bit nostalgical, and no i dont have any News about any [Fan] Projects for such great Anniversary Remake Edition released in any time, but seriously - how awesome would it be to play the Classic Game 25 yrs after it's Release? Maybe even in a superpimped up Ultra HD Resolution, HDR and all New Game Engine, Graphix, Physix and OST in Dolby Atmos/DTS:X?

    This Game definitively deserves a Full Done Remake. Right?

    Mechwarrior 2 was a great game. I'm not sure what I'd get out of a remake as opposed to a new game though. I don't remember the story/plot being all that great.

    Exactly this.
    I was too young to even remember it (despite my brothers bought the whole package with the iconic timberwolf on the front), that's why I remember playing the 1st mission of MW2: Mercenaries and not this game, despite being able to somewhat remember the remastered tracks of Timothy Seals (and yeah, I bought his album).

    Not sure if I'll be happy with a straight and simple remastered version, though: some time ago I talked to my brother about MW2 and it should be completely broken, unbalanced and/or easily exploitable compared to MW4 and MWO. If I remember correctly, there were no hardpoint / components limitation, so the only real limit were slots and tonnage.
