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.

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor Review

  • 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)

  • 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.

  • 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.

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor

Gamereactor
22 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The trademark of the Steel Battalion series is the weighty, multi-buttoned controller that came bundled with the original. At over a hundred quid it had everything you could want to simulate being inside a futuristic biped tank, the kind that populates many sci-fi novels and manga.
  • Pros: + Once drawn in, very immersive. + Laboured control beneficial in capturing situation
  • Cons: - finding Kinect sweet spots will frustrate - uneven balance between playable missions and cut-scenes - bloody hard - HUD system not perfect - Crew horribly cliche and repeated phrases grate. - First level far too harsh an introduction.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Poging tot implementeren van Kinect, Veel potentie, Sterk verhaal, Overtuigende gezichtsanimaties, Mechs!
  • Cons: Slechte uitvoering van Kinect, Belabberde gameplay

  • 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.
  • 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

  • Conclusion: Steel Battalion Heavy Armor ha intentado lo que otros muchos ni siquiera han hecho y es ofrecer un sistema híbrido al jugador para que pueda disfrutar de un mayor realismo e inmersión en el juego .

  • Summary: Det er vanvittig vanskeleg å skulle seie noko heilt bastant om Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor sidan det er eit spel med så mange motstridande sider at eg nesten saknar delkarakterar. Det er eit uhyre intenst og på mange måtar klaustrofobisk spel som byggjer opp ei ufin stemning.
