Front Mission Evolved
Front Mission Evolved is a third-person "mech" shooter, and the eleventh game in the Front Mission franchise which began by Square on the SNES. Players take control of walking tanks, known as Wanderung Panzers, which can be customized, as they battle enemies. The game also features an online multiplayer mode. Front Mission Evolved, while taking place after the previous titles, is a reboot of the series.
Taking place in 2171, countries have formed global blocks, and look towards space to expand their colonization, making orbital elevators a valuable asset. USN engineer Dylan Ramsey climbs into a prototype wanzer and sets off for New York City, worried about his father after the area was attacked by unknown forces.
Front Mission Evolved received lukewarm reviews, with an average score of 59%, praised for the customization features, but criticized for its lack of polish. The decision to switch from tactical-RPG to third-person shooter received mixed reviews.
This 3-star rating is mainly due to the grinding required for the online trophies. Not only do you need to find players for specific types of matches, but you need to win those matches as well. On top of which, reaching Rank 70 will take a good portion of your time.
The good news is, the offline trophies are easier than average, and even possible to acquire in one playthrough, depending on your skills. If you have a boosting partner, this difficulty rating could be brought down to a 2-star.
With a boosting partner, expect around 40 hours of gameplay. Without, you will probably need to dedicate over 80 hours.
Hard difficulty isn't too bad, and starting your playthrough on this mode could net you most - if not all - the offline trophies in one go. However, if it's proving to be a grind, then play on Easy and build up on stronger weapons and tech parts, which will make your second playthrough on Hard much easier. The choice is yours.
Either way, you should follow one of the guides under our Links tab to collect all the Sensors, Emblems, and Scramblers. There are also a few combat-related trophies to earn along the way, so check out the Front Mission Evolved trophy guide links under our Links tab for what you need. All of these can be earned during your first playthrough. If you miss any, simply use the chapter select to mop-up anything you miss afterwards.
With the offline trophies out of the way, you can move on to the real chore: earning the 7 online trophies. As we stated earlier, having a good boosting party not only makes these much easier, but gives you the ability to play (and let win) the specific multiplayer matches and modes that you need. Otherwise, you'll need to start up a match of your choosing and wait for players to join - then hopefully win. Also, reaching Rank 70 for the My Hero Zero trophy will take some serious grinding - particularly in the beginning, before you can earn better equipment for your mech.
