[top]Overview

In the future, the world is a changed place. Technology has advanced. Countries have merged into massive geopolitical blocks. But one thing, sadly, remains the same humanity's appetite for war. When a terrorist attack destroys one of the U.C.S.s prized orbital elevators, the military is mobilized to eliminate the threat. Dylan Ramsey, a young engineer, finds himself quickly caught in a swirl of destruction, conspiracies and crumbling alliances...

[top]Tips and Strategies

  • Hard difficulty shouldn't give you too much trouble, however if you find yourself overwhelmed you can play on easy first and build up your wanzers and skills, then return to complete the missions via the Act Select function.
  • Equip an A.G.I.L.I.T.Y. backpack to improve your mobility. Especially in multiplayer, maneuverability will usually be more useful to keep you alive than armor.
  • While on foot, stick to cover and choose your moments wisely, especially when facing a wanzer. Though the enemy AI isn't particularly smart, they do pack a punch if you're not careful.
  • Ammo and Repair pickups respawn in boss battles, making them a lot easier than they should be. Note their locations and if you get into trouble, stay on the move until they respawn.



[top]Roadmap

PLAYTHROUGH 1 - HARD DIFFICULTY:
Front Mission Evolved isn't terribly hard even on Hard difficulty, and if you are at all familiar with games such as Armored Core, then FME is familiar terrain. With the possible exception of a few of the end bosses, the game shouldn't pose that much of a challenge for you. On your first playthrough, if you follow the Collectibles Guide, you can get most if not all of the single player trophies. If you're having difficulty with completing the game on Hard difficulty, you can go through the game on Easy first to obtain access to stronger parts and weapons then come back to the missions that you haven't yet completed on Hard using the "Act Select" feature. It will show at the bottom of each mission the highest difficulty that it has been completed on, for ease of reference.

PLAYTHROUGH 2 - CLEANUP (OPTIONAL):
If you haven't gotten all of the trophies yet, use the Act Select feature to get any collectibles or non-story trophies that you haven't received yet.

ONLINE:
To wrap up your Platinum, wade into the morass of online multiplayer. Be prepared for some initial frustration as the game doesn't do a fantastic job of balancing matches for players with a low Rank. The servers are also highly populated with Japanese players who have already achieved high Ranks due to the game being released two weeks earlier in Japan than North America. Make use of the pre-built wanzers at first until you have a few matches (or more likely a lot of matches) under your belt and gain access to the stronger weapons and parts. Most of the online trophies will come in due course of your trek towards the My Hero Zero trophy. The best advice I could give would be to keep your head and not get too frustrated.
