IGN writes: "When it comes to crazy mech games out of Japan, there's one franchise that holds a special place in my heart. Back in the day, I held everything SEGA did in high regard, even when it was something as crazy as making giant twin-stick controllers for a mech fighting game. Such was the passion that -- unable to afford the import cost of such a controller -- I regularly made trips to the arcade to get my Virtual On fix. Fast forward a few years and I'm here at the Tokyo Game Show taking the fourth entry of the franchise out for a spin... and on a special Hori arcade Virtual On controller made for Xbox 360, no less. And yes, it's just as hardcore as ever".
