Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor (Kinect) Review |

"Capcom are back with the launch of Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor and rather than develop, or re-use a custom controller they are basing this game on the Xbox 360 Kinect functionality. With an interesting history in the franchise and developed by the team behind games such as Dark Souls can Heavy Armor take a place as the latest key Kinect title?" - (Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, Xbox 360) 60/100

Damn!!! 60? I thought this game would of been a triple AAA title for Kinect. It has great ideas too.

60/100 is a AAA title score for kinect sadly lol.

Id recommend you give it a try you know how many opinions can differ from your own and sometimes lead you to avoiding something you might actually enjoy.

It's a shame that it's getting low scores as a lot of people had high hopes for this one. But it seemed like these guys were more interested in utilizing everything they could for the kinect and have gameplay and pretty much everything else take a backseat. To be fair, capcom didn't develop this one, and if they decide to make another they'll most likely do it themselves....

Their is a demo of the game for download on the marketplace if anyone is interested in trying it.

ive tried it and the controls actually are good it just requires more of a mimicking of say pushing a button or pulling a lever. I doubt most people realize that since the sensitivity is high enough on the thing that just waving your arm over it can sometimes activate certain things. it all still depends mostly on the person that plays it seeing as there's sort of a learning curve with kinect games.

I think they do as it is promising tech and Kinect has done its job this gen in opening it up to everyone as the 360 was seen as a core consoles and is now seen as a core and family console. Kinect 2 will be built with better tech that will work better for core games and with Kinect being shipped with ever xbox not as a add on more developers will start to use it more.

it will be better tech and when you do consider the world outside of the big producers its actually doing better in a sense. They have kinect on skyrim and bulletstorm there's mods implementing it into new and different things that are more innovative. The kinect2 will improve upon the kinect1 and will hopefully push for more hardcore titles. Still the thing that's killing these scores the most seems to either be controls or content. Here its controls but from my own experiences the controls were fine so maybe a better tutorial to show exactly what to do or maybe broaden the over all gesture to do a certain action.
