Starsiege, an action game released in 1999 by Sierra On-Line. The game was released for PC (Windows).
Shooting is not known for its extensive story line, but in the case of "Starsiege" the case looks a bit different. The creators put a lot of pressure on the story creating an interesting universe and captivating story. The game takes place in the distant future. Humanity has mastered several planets, but can not cope with social inequalities. Living in extremely bad conditions, the colonists rebel against the omnipotent emperor. At the same time, artificial intelligence is joining the fight. The stake in the war will be the fate of all mankind, and the decisive battles will be decided by huge mechs called HERCs (short for HERCULAN).
The player sitting at the controls of these machines can choose between two sides of the fight. If he sided with the people, he would first have to reconcile feuding terrestrials and colonists to defeat the more powerful enemy together. Otherwise, along with the soulless Cybrids, you will have to destroy Earth's protective systems and get rid of the emperor. A wide arsenal of various weapons is extremely important, but the creators also put emphasis on covers, armor and motors of robots. Although the game consists of a series of missions for one person, but its important element is the multiplayer mode. Fans will be able to face the following modes: deathmatch, team deathmatch and capture the flag.
