Get ready for action as we look at MechWarrior 3! This is a series that has always interested me as I have always had a fascination with mechs! The game was originally released in 1999 and was a pretty big hit back in the day. Of course, when you go back and look at a 3D shooter from 1999, you have to set your expectations accordingly, but I did actually have a lot of fun playing with this as I put it through its paces for the first time in many years.

Defend The Inner Sphere

There is a story here that serves as the motivation for getting through the campaign, but it is not exactly groundbreaking stuff. In MechWarrior 3 as the name suggests you play as a badass mech. You are one of many that are responsible for defending the Inner Sphere from an evil clan. It has been a long time since I played the original two games, but from what I do remember the stakes in this game feel a lot smaller than they did in the first two.

My Graphics Card Is Ripped!

I know you may laugh to hear this, but back in 1999, this game was a big step forward in the world of 3D graphics. It was a bit of a beast to get running and the 3D world which may look a bit sparse and low on detail by today's standard was very well received back in the day. I love the mech designs in this game and the way you can customize pretty much every aspect of your mech from the color to the weapons that it has is really cool. I actually feel that the game looks fairly decent for its age.

Instant Action

For me, the best part about MechWarrior 3 is the Instant Action mode. In this mode, you pick your mech and you are free to tinker with it in many ways. You can set it so that it is very powerful. You then can pick the enemies you want and just have at it. While this is full of mindless destruction, it has always been a mode that I have found strangely relaxing. It is just you and your mech blowing away a ton of other mechs!

Controlling A Hulking Mech

This is one of those games that requires a lot of buttons as you play. Controlling the mech to make it walk is simple in that it is keyboard and mouse. However, many other buttons of the keyboard will do stuff as well. You can customize this, but there is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to controlling the mechs in this game so be sure to keep that in mind before you jump in here.

I know that by today's standards, MechWarrior 3 may not look like the greatest or fanciest game ever. However, I still feel that there is some fun to be had here. Granted the campaign is not that great, but I feel the instant action mode makes up for this. It is a fun game to play if you want to cause some major damage as a cool looking mech.

Final Score


  • The game looks pretty decent for its age
  • You can customize a mech
  • Lots of weapons to use
  • I like the Instant Action mode
  • Blowing stuff up as a mech is always fun


  • The campaign is not very good at all
  • It can take a while to get the hang of the controls

Description of MechWarrior

Mechwarrior For Mac

Probably the very first giant robot game that can proudly claim to be a simulation than a straightforward action shooter, Mechwarrior is a great game set in FASA's famous BattleTech world of giant robots. It was, and still is, one of the best BattleTech games ever made.

In this game, you play a young man whose reputation has been soiled by an evil usurper. You have five years to build a force of giant robots and great pilots strong enough to attack your foe. Take on mercenary missions for any one of the 5 houses from the first generation world of FASA's BattleTech (Kurita, Davion, Steiner, Marik, Laio). The missions themselves take place from first-person perspective, in 3D-rendered worlds, where you pilot your robot, fighting other robots of the same ilk.

Gameplay, based on Dynamix's excellent physics model used in its early flight sims, is top-notch. Robots move convincingly, and the 3D polygonal graphics are exciting for its time. Add some slight roleplaying, team building, planetary intrigue, and goofy EGA pictures of non-player-characters and you've got a great classic that goes a long way toward immersing you in its world. The role playing was primarily textual - reading paragraphs, choosing between fight or run, and then being killed or moving on accordingly. The game's main focus, robot fighting, is very exciting. Combat usually lasts under 10-20 minutes because the maps are small, the opponents are few, just with less dense graphics and more abbreviated gameplay.

Overall, Mechwarrior is a must-have for anyone even with a slight interest in giant robot games. It sets the standard for other games in the giant robots genre, and its role-playing elements are sorely missing from today's mech games where the focus has shifted to strategy and 3D graphics than plot and atmosphere. Two thumbs up!

Thank you so much! This is trip to memory lane! I felt young again!

Scarecrow1072019-08-25-1 point

Hello. I have the game working and changed the config file, but the game runs at lighting speeds. How do I get the game to play at it's normal speed? During combat, everthing moves as if in fast forward, my mech and the enemy mech. I can't complete even one mission. Thanks. I hope someone is still looking at these posts.

I bought this game when it first came out. Stayed up late nights playing it. Won it. played it again. This game still rocks!

GUY FAWKES2017-07-070 point


I found a fix for the codes here:,6/
not sure if it works.

Guy Fawkes2017-07-061 point

Also does anyone have a crack to disable the annoying input codes?

Guy Fawkes2017-07-062 points

Does anyone else think it odd that it gives you 'Tandy MT-32' and 'Roland'? Shouldn't it be 'Tandy' and 'Roland MT-32'?

Alex2432016-01-131 point

sorry for my grammar

Alex2432016-01-131 point

Thanks for the help, but do u play it on D-Fend because I did the step but it play's on a small screen and I cant full screen it play, also its no on my D-Fend

Crypto1372015-12-151 point

Fix for hang up without using a frontend. (Thanks BOOPY for this final solution)
*try midi setting 'mpu401=uart' in conf.*
For Windows 7 and maybe others:
-Go to where your DOSBox is installed
-Open 'DOSBox 0.74 Options'; Select All; Copy
-Open Notepad; Paste
-Go to the midi setting and change 'mpu401=intelligent' to 'mpu401=uart'
-Save as 'gamename.txt' inside your Mechwarrior folder
-Copy a new shortcut for the DOSBox App
-Right-click, go to Properties, and set Target with file locations similar to this:
'DOSBox.exe location' -conf 'new notepad txt location'
Example of my target:
'C:Program Files (x86)DOSBox-0.74DOSBox.exe' -conf 'C:GamesMechwarriormechwarMW_1.txt'
-Rename your new shortcut to 'MW-DOSBox' or something of the sort
-Now drag your 'MW.exe' application into your new MW-DOSBox shortcut and the game shouldn't hang up anymore.
I hope this helps and is not too confusing :)

@ boopy
Thank you very very much!

Boopy2015-01-184 points DOS version

i found a solution of hang after mission.
try midi setting 'mpu401=uart' in conf. (using frontend like D.O.G is easiest way to change conf settings.)
it works fine on DosBox 0.74

Frank2014-07-07-1 point DOS version

I had the same problem playing the game, but I read elsewhere it works better with DOSBox 0.61. Sure enough, using this version of DOS Box solves the problem of it hanging with a blinking cursor after missions. Now I'm mech-ing it up left and right!

It can't be worse than MW2, can it?

Having problems after killing my first mech, the game seems to hang up.
After killing the first mech, the screen goes black with a blinking cursor (like it's going to go to another screen) but it just sits at the blinking cursor..
any ideas?

Vryus2012-07-100 point DOS version

I loved this game as a kid. My friend and I used to play the board game (BattleTech, not the MechWarrior RPG). I used to sit in front of the screen manning the guns on the keyboard. My friend would sit next to me with the old Tandy joystick. We would run as many missions as we could that way. So much fun!
The only funny quirk- You can take out almost anything in a Locust by running up to it (even the leg of a BattleMaster) and then just pounding like heck on the machine guns until you blow the leg out.
So much fun!
