Summary: Kinect took over 30 minutes to setup. Once I finally got it working it didn't work during the first two attempts at game play and attempted again to recalibrate the game settings. Have wood floors, white background walls, and no other obsticles. Controls simply don't work the way they should with connect. Total Junk - From a heavy gamer.
Summary: I don't understand this game at all. - putting this on Kinect - changing the game setting from it's original sci-fi setting (There is now a drill sergeant in here....) I bought a Kinect for this game since the previous 2 Steel Battalions were great. WHAT A MISTAKE! If you are a fan then forget about this franchise.
Summary: This game had an interesting concept and I was excited to try it out. The tutorial is one of the worst I've ever tried to endure and it the awful Kinect controls made the game unplayable. The standard Xbox controller is used for all of the interesting stuff (moving and shooting) while the Kinect controls serve as annoying add-ons that don't seem to enhance the playing experience (pulling a lever to run faster, or hitting the console to change weapons) and the actions...
Summary: I wanted to like this game - got a deal on it. However, it's completely unplayable. Kinect won't recognize commands - you feel like you're being forced to learn a bad dance but the kinect controls just don't recognize what you're doing the majority of the time. I couldn't even complete the tutorial before I game up in frustration.
Summary: This is my first negative review. This game is a frustrating experience. The Kinect driven controls do not work well. I am constantly focusing on trying to get the control to work and lose track of the game itself, thus, rather than adding to the game experience, it greatly detracts. I have other kinect games and have no problem with any of them, including the exercise ones that rely on accruate mapping of the body.
Summary: I have been playing video games for 20 years or more, and have spent literally thousands of dollars on games for myself and my sons (20, 18, and 16 years old). We are also expert at Xbox and Kinect and without hesitation this is the worst video game I have ever purchased. Now, I will say its possible the game play could be good, if you can ever get through the interface, but I couldn't.
Be warned. Everyone online who is reviewing this says its kinect controls dont work right

Summary: As I write this the game is the second highest trending topic on twitter in NYC. It has also just received an entire host of reviews from both players and magazines and they are all saying the exact same thing...the game doesn't work properly with Kinect. Its receiving 1 ou tof 10 reviews from magazines and rage from players since the control scheme is a combination of both controller and kinect input.
Summary: Als alter Battletech und Steel Battailon Fan hatte ich diesen Nachfolger sehr genau im Blick, da auch der Trailer vielversprechend ausschaute. Gleichzeitig ist die Story erfrischend einfallsreich (will nichts spoilern), und die Grafik für Xbox360-Verhältnisse sehr gut. Leider wird das Spiel durch einen simplen Sachverhalt absolut ruiniert - Man kann es nicht spielen.
