'Mech games seem to come in two different flavors, fast and slow. The slow, like Steel Battalion, favor a more realistic approach to piloting a giant robot, whereas titles like Mechwarrior for the Xbox or Virtua On focus more on using the 'Mech as an avatar for third-person run-and-gun gameplay. The Armored Core franchise focuses on the fast type, but it's no run-and-gun game by any means. Instead, its focus is the run-and-dash technique. Well, that and customization.
