Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor

Digital Chumps

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Heavy Armor is certainly an interesting experiment but one that never quite manages to convince. Most missions feel like trial and error rather than a test of your own skill, plus the Kinect wobbles that are thrown your way can have mission ending consequences that are far from satisfactory.

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor Review (Xbox 360)

Gamers Daily News
25 June 2012
  • Summary: Such a great idea is lost on inconsistent design. Those able to overcome the technical challenges will only find a game that averages out to ’decent, but probably not worth its full retail price.’ Genre enthusiasts may want to rent it, while everyone else can probably just hold onto their money or spend it elsewhere.

  • Conclusion: The last time someone tried to sell us on a "hardcore game for Kinect" it was Rise of Nightmares. That should have been a warning. To quote Jurassic Park, the developers "were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should." There's a reason why the old Steel Battlions succeeded with a special controller that had 40 buttons, while the new one fails with a special controller that doesn't have any: SOME GAMES NEED BUTTONS.

  • Summary: Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor had zo’n toffe game kunnen zijn, maar weet door de slechte besturing niet waar te maken wat de trailers beloofden. Iedere trailer maakte me enthousiaster, want in de trailers ziet de game er ontzettend tof uit. In de trailer werkt de besturing wel gewoon naar behoren en dan is dit een hele toffe game.
  • Pros: Poging tot implementeren van Kinect, Veel potentie, Sterk verhaal, Overtuigende gezichtsanimaties, Mechs!
  • Cons: Slechte uitvoering van Kinect, Belabberde gameplay

Expert Review

8 November 2012
  • Conclusion: 11 /20 Il est extrêmement facile de descendre ce Steel Battalion : Heavy Armor qui cumule des imprécisions malgré un gameplay hybride (manette et Kinect) bien pensé, une progression par l’échec, une difficulté relevée et des déplacements lourds et lents. Qu’on se le dise, pour le commun des mortels, le titre sera vite considéré comme inaccessible, voire injouable pour les plus frustrés.
  • Pros: L’aspect simulation de mécha, Habitacle très correct, Extrêmement immersif, Challenge relevé, La coopération, Personnaliser le VT, Bande sonore convaincante, Plein de subtilités, ATH paramétrable, Didacticiel bien intégré, Gameplay hybride bien pensé…
  • Cons: Mais bien des imprécisions, Pas de raccourci (pad ou vocal), Peu de missions en coop, IA alliée légère, adverse statique, Dialogues stéréotypés, Patriotisme exaspérant, Techniquement dépassé, Inadapté pour le commun des mortels

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor für Xbox 360 im Test

gamepro.de
10 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Die tollen Ansätze werden durch die unausgereifte Kinectsteuerung zunichte gemacht.
  • Pros: atmosphärisch dichte Weltkriegsoptik, gewaltige Explosionen, detailliertes Cockpit, coole Surroundeffekte, gute (englische) Sprecher, schöner Soundtrack, tolle Atmosphäre, 7 in Missionen unterteilte Einsatzgebiete, modifizierbare Mechs
  • Cons: teils matschige Texturen, nicht alle Missionen im Koop verfügbar, online durch Verzögerungen noch schwieriger spielbar, Spielerzahl ernüchternd, Kinectsteuerung eine Katastrophe, keine Steuerungsalternative, unnötig frustrierend

  • Excerpt: Un seul point noir, c'est tout ce qu'il faut parfois pour flinguer un titre qui ne manque pourtant pas d'atouts. Il suffit que le point noir en question concerne l'aspect le plus crucial d'un jeu : sa fichue prise en main !

Steel Battalion - Heavy Armor

  • Excerpt: Steel Battalion vågar utforska nya teknikspår, men utan karta i oprövat land är det lätt att gå vilse. Det är inte alltid det räcker med en kreativ tanke. Ny teknik brukar ofta falla in i en fåra där det får ett vedertaget sätt att användas. I fallet med Kinect har det varit titlar där man ska hoppa, studsa och vifta med hela kroppen (gärna samtidigt) för att idrotta, träna eller dansa.

Recension: Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor

se.ign.com
1 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Heavy Armor kan mycket väl vara Kinects största misslyckande, men det beror framför allt på att det är den mest ambitiösa titeln. Spelet anstränger sig för att göra saker som inget gjort med Kinect tidigare. De försöker inte bara göra ett hardcore-spel till maskinen, utan även göra det på ett inlevelsefullt sätt. En stor del av besvikelsen beror därför antagligen på att vi önskar att Heavy Armor vore ett bra spel.
