MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries
In MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries you will adopt the role of a rookie MechWarrior pilot thrust into combat as the Third Succession War continues to fracture the Inner Sphere. Take contracts from the factions of your choosing and engage in tactical, first-person, PvE ‘Mech combat through an immersive, career-based Mercenary campaign driven by player choice. Victory, prestige, and profit will not only require skill on the battlefield, but in the acquisition, maintenance, and enhancement of your BattleMechs.
Set for release in 2018, MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is under development by a dedicated development team at Piranha Games. MechWarrior Online, Piranha’s existing F2P multiplayer-focused tactical ‘Mech combat game, will continue its ongoing live development by the MWO team at Piranha.

They'll frequently stand around and not shoot anything. They'll constantly walk in front of you (there is friendly fire).
Sometimes you'll ask all three of them to just please deal with one teeny tiny mech while you fight off 4 or 5 big motherfuckers and, after you emerge victorious with an arm, a leg and a hundred thousand dollars worth of guns missing you'll turn around and your teammates will have maybe shot the last enemies leg off.
Two important sour points are that the campaign is way too long and your AI lancemates are dumb as bricks. It detracts a little from the commander fantasy (and actually playing the game) when you need to actively cheese your teammates into pretending to be competent to avoid getting roflstomped by the sheer amounts of armor the game will hit you with at higher difficulties.
