MechWarrior 2 tells the story of the Clan Refusal War, a great conflict between the Crusader Clan Jade Falcon and the Warden Clan Wolf. The epic storyline culminates in the destruction of Clan Wolf as it was and the annihilation of most of Clan Jade Falcon's military power. Players choose either Clan Jade Falcon or Clan Wolf mechwarriors to play as they attempt to carry out their Clan's battle plans.
With Clan Jade Falcon and Clan Wolf decimating each other, Clan Ghost Bear becomes the most powerful amongst clans. In MechWarrior 2: Ghost Bear's Legacy, someone steals the stored genetic material of the Clan's founders. Only through a series of difficult espionage and raid missions can Clan Ghost Bear uncover the parties responsible and recover their very legacy.
MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries examines the life of a mercenary in the Battletech universe as the player negotiates and accepts contracts as a mercenary leader. Between missions, he or she can acquire hired help or mechs and equipment with money earned from the contracts. The game begins with the Succession Wars between the Inner Sphere's five great houses, goes through the invasion of the Clans and ends with the Clans' defeat.
MechWarrior 2: Titanium Trilogy is not only a compilation of all three games in one package but updates them to support 3D accelerator hardware. These first person perspective giant robot simulators were instrumental in the development of the genre and now fans can play them with updated 3D graphics. Players pilot one of many mechs and command several CPU controlled allied mechs as well. Each mission has a number of objectives that must be completed for advancement. ~ Kyle Knight, All Game Guide
