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.

  • 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 (Xbox360)

EL33TONLINE
27 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I think there is a lot of fixation nowadays with getting your console to be motion sensitive – too much, in fact. I am a controller kind of gamer and that’s the way I like it. I won’t, however, cast dispersions on motion sensor consoles and add-ons such as the Kinect for the Xbox.

Gameplay Goes AWOL In Mech-Combat Revival

Game Informer
19 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: Revive the mech combat series, swapping out its notoriously complicated controller for a Kinect-based interface Graphics: The inside of your Vertical Tank looks great, and the game does a great job of selling their old-school physicality. Unfortunately, things don’t fare nearly as well outside the cockpit Sound: There’s nothing wrong with the audio, but it’s indistinguishable from every other giant robot game you’ve ever played Playability: Thanks to shoddy...
