"It is truly disappointing to see what became of Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor as I truly wanted to enjoy and like the title. However after struggling for hours trying to manage the Kinect control scheme it ultimately became a battle against the game rather than the enemies on-screen. It doesn’t help that the game’s storyline barely serves as a structure for what is happening on screen. Ultimately if Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor is crushed under the weight of its own ambition, with a control scheme better suited for a controller than shoe-horned motion controls."
