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: 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: 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!!!

Conclusion: Where should I start? The awesome gameplay or the horrific net code? I guess it's truly impossible to have a perfect game. First I'll start out with the bad. Lag. In the beginning lag was your worst enemy, not the guy shooting you, but lately it has cleared up quite a bit but still has a long way to go. Also due to the steep price point of the controller and the limited ammount of those people with LIVE accounts, it sometimes takes a bit to get a game going.

Conclusion: This game is incredible. well when it works.... :( Capcom at this point and time has many kinks to iron out in network code. MS should help them. -_- The game requires a strange HIGH bandwith so unless you have a HIGH speed cable connection, you WONT be playing 5on5 at ALL. You wont even be able to join the game. I switched to Comcast myself, and have little problems except the occasional Lag.
Summary: This game is not for those looking for something to sit next to the latest madden or Tekken iteration. It is certainly not a "flawless" game in the mold of Halo or Metal Gear Solid. The title is uniquely demanding in resources and skill, and therefore it is uniquely rewarding. I would characterize it as a cross between an arcade game and a sim-- however odd that may seem.
A new extreme in gaming, and this time, a good one...

Summary: Very rarely, these days, does a new game from a major publisher challenge and excite the player on the same level, or with the same intensity of Steel Battalion. In this day in age, when videogames have become a mass-produced commodity of a billion-dollar industry, the target consumer is not the same person he was ten or twenty years ago.
Summary: I know what you are thinking...200 bucks for ONE GAME?! Believe me, with the addition of Line of Contact (the XBOX LIVE disc) this is a game that you will be playing for a very long time. I am convinced that these huge walking metal tanks must truly exist somewhere for this level of detail to be realized. Pass on the next Tomb Raider you were going to buy and treat yourself to some dirty warfare instead!
This is going to be one of the most epic games ever

Summary: Last Christmas I took the plunge into getting Steel Battalion. To this day, I play it at least 5 times a week, the game is so incredibly awesome. Now with Line of Contact coming very soon, its going to take this game to the next epic level. With Xbox Live (yes its online!) five on five teams can battle it out in deathmatches, capture the flag and more game modes to be shown later.
