Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: If you were alive in 2002, you may remember Steel Battalion for the original Xbox. To many gamer's dismay, it required a special giant $200 controller and a priceless amount of mental fortitude, making it one of the most unique games of last generation. Flash forward about ten years -- the long awaited spiritual successor is about to drop. It's Kinect-only.

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor Review

DailyGame
22 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Fast-forward to the Xbox 360 and Kinect, and Capcom made all the right theoretical moves with Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor. Long gone is the massive peripheral and even larger price tag. Using nothing but an Xbox Kinect, your body and the game disk, you can control your vehicle like Xbox gamers did with their living-room cockpit. You even get a more-realized virtual cockpit and better overall graphics.

Kinect Flaws Doom The Steel Battalion

GIN
6 August 2012
  • Excerpt: In one of my latest columns, I wrote about how frustrated I have been with the Kinect lately on my 360. At first I enjoyed having that sensor mounted onto my wall, and using it to control my Xbox 360 with just my voice. But then it started taking over when I was on my laptop and had MLB.TV tuned in the background. It got to the point where I had to disconnect it.

Review: Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
5 August 2012
  • Summary: : Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor is an example of trying very hard to make something unique that ends up falling on its face because the “unique”Â� elements are simply not very fun. The plot is interesting enough to carry the experience for a while, and the game certainly looks and sounds quite solid overall.

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor Review

GamerNode
25 July 2012
  • Summary: A complex, cumbersome, and claustrophobic simulation of driving a complicated war machine. Don't forget your Bonine.
  • Pros: A dismally accurate tank simulation
  • Cons: Kinect controls that plain don't work, Offensive stereotypes, Unreasonable difficulty

  • Conclusion: Its important to think about those high points when looking at Steel Battalion . If you look at it as an action game, then it falls at almost every hurdle. Aiming is jerky and hard, and the controls are too complex to engage in fast-paced combat. However, if you look at it from a simulation point of view, enthusiasts of mech-games certainly have something to get excited about at being in the cockpit of one without forking out the £200-odd for the previous game.

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor

  • Conclusion: If From would have nailed the motion controls down, this would have been one of my favorite games of the year because it's so engaging and fresh. Unfortunately, dealing with the sketchy controls can be wildly frustrating.

War. What is it Good for? Giant Walking Mecha.

  • Conclusion: Twenty of my thirty crew members died by the halfway point of the game due to my incompetency. Why am I in charge of the platoon again?
  • Pros: I managed to keep a crewmember alive for two consecutive missions. A personal best!
  • Cons: Kinect-based quicktime events in a timed mission against a boss that can one-shot me.
