Steel Battalion Heavy Armor
Has its faults but good game should be a arcade
For the first game of its kind i think it stretches the limits for what the kinect can do for the hardcore gamer. And sure your seeing the world through a square hole of a vertical tank does kind of limit the atmosphere but thats what the game was trying to do in the first place.I find the intensity when your tank gets blasted, your character gets pushed back and your forced to physically move your arms forward to reattach your self to the sight console as an experience that has never been attempted or successfully created. Like most kinect games this one takes practice, you cant expect yourself to run into dance central 2 and expect to button mash your way to 5 stars. So many hard core gamers have been accustomed to handling new games completely controller based with ease. but the fact is motion gaming is a new field and it will take much longer than the possible 1 week it took this guy to give this review. Try the demo get a kitchen stool or chair sit in front of your kinect run through the tutorial and then tell me you've never played a game like this before in your life.
Come on people
Seriously no other previews as I'm writing this? This is the first KINECT game for core gamers like myself. If you don't own a kinect and know someone borrow theirs just to try this demo out its on xbox live. Its a lot of fun and doesn't require all kinds of dumb body movement like the kiddy games. A perfect integration of kinect and the controller. Give it a chance before passing it off as more typical kinect trash. You'll be surprised.
could have been better
It would be nice if they stuck with one controller instead of switching between the kinet and the normal controller. It gets annoying.
finally a great game for kinect , played the demo and man this was actually the first kinect game that utilized the tool how it should, had no real problems with the commands and actually had a fun time played the original steel batallion and it just brought back memories, that game was ahead of its time. and so is this one.
My first initial thoughts were this is easy but no, its a very difficult to get used to (simple) pay attention the games instructions and don't rush through too much of the info you need to know how to play, I hope people in the future know this because this is not likely to be seen by everyone.
Kinect = No
just played the demo, if you think kinect is good for a game you are wrong, i will tell you my opinion ; kinect is not that great of a thing, it really sucks, and playing the demo will tell you, the buttons in your little VT are so close together that when you go to puss one of them you, you puss a different button, exp. it showed me the detonate self button, and the kinect thought i was trying to use it, BOTTOM LINE; needs less kinect and more controller or its not worth the $60, RENT OR BORROW FIRST DON'T RUN OUT AND BUY!!!
Horrible game. The switch you need to use is right next to the self-destruct button, and Kinect doesn't pick up exactly where you're trying to put your hand, and causing you to do things you don't mean to do. Don't buy it.
SO MUCH FUN
the game play makes it feel like you are truly in the action. the kinect is a bit hard to use with this game but its easy to learn how to play.
A Bi-Pedal Tank Simulation that is worth buying
Many people complained about how the KINECT sucks but this game is overall the best KINECT game ever. Before you get on your car and go, first try the demo if you have a KINECT. If you like it, Go for it, buy it! If you don't your KINECT may need calibrations or its just your opinion. Overall, very addictive and good for.......moving?
