Summary: Awesome game, great controller, like no other. No tutorial to speak of, but avid gamers will catch on quickly. Would highly reccommend for the non-serious gamer. An enjoyable and complicated, detailed game.
Summary: This game was a gift. The recipient loves it and plays it any chance he gets. If you love RPGs, you should love this game. It has a lot of controls to learn but takes you through little by little so you learn a little as you play each level.
Summary: This game and controller are everything I was hoping for. The controller when placed on a desk and with the foot peddle combination gives you that realistic feeling that I wanted. The controller takes some time to get use to and some buttons are only used upon starting your Mech but as you do you can soon forget the complications and enjoy the game. The ejection button does make it a bit difficult to eject in time sometimes but it beats ejecting by accident.
Summary: I would love to be able to write a review about playing the game,but becouse Capcom does not state on the box that you can only play their game if you buy a special controler I have no clue what the game is like.Not only that but I can not even find the controler to buy(or how much for it).I do not like to bad mouth some ones product, but when I pay $45.00 for a game I would like to be able to play it.
Summary: I play this game all the time. Everyone says its over priced, let me see you go buy 2 joysticks, shifter, and 3 pedals for less then $200. This game is most exciteing game i have ever played. And if you buy the online version it is great. There is a small comunity of people that play there all really nice and will give you money for free if you ask. People will give you lessons on how to play everyone very nice.
Summary: Steel Battalion is expensive but fun. It comes with controllers to play the game. The footpeddles are sturdy. In Steel Battalion, you pilot a VT(vertical tank) though missions. The mech controls well even though the controls are hard to get used to. You generally have allies in these mission that help you comple your objectives. For the most part, these missions are hard. A flaw in Steel Battalion is the fact that there are not enough missions.
Summary: This game is a great sim don't get me wrong but if you have a PC Go buy all the mechwarrior tittles they are all rather low priced now and if your looking for a controller go find a Saitek Flight control system. With all of the mechwarrior games you get more variety in the mech you control, weapon loadouts, speed vs. armor. And lots more missions. Plus online fun with a mission editor.
Summary: I recently purchased the Steel Battalion controller/game bundle and since then my brain has been fried. This is the most immmersive and realistic game I've ever played. Getting the behemoth of a controller setup takes a bit of mental effort as it's much easier to simply pop in Halo 2 and go than lug out the controller and foot pedals, but once it is set up, say goodbye to Halo 2!!!
Summary: OK, this is a great game, very unique and revolutionary, but please dont be fooled, this game is way overpriced, especially when u can go buy 4 other games for the price of this one. I am a seasoned gamer, and i decided to buy this game. It was fantastic for the first 2 hours, than it got old, diffuculty was raised rapidly, toward driving me crazy.
