Great game, great art but if you're looking for lots of combat, this isn't it. You will build mechs that can be used for combat, but their true value is found in the mobility they to your workers and harvested resources and their ability to disrupt your opponents' workers.
That said, this game is an asymmetrical game: each player controls a unique character with unique abilities--no two are remotely the same. Furthermore, each player also has a unique player board with similar (but not the same!) actions to the opponents' player boards. While asymmetrical, the game is thoroughly well-balanced with great replayability.
