IGN: Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor Review

IGN writes, "Forget "You are the controller." After nearly two years, the mantra for Kinect has proven to be more like, “The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.” Though the gamepad-free gaming device conjured up wondrous images of slick, gesture-driven, Minority Report-style user interfaces upon its introduction, its realities have borne far less ambition -- and even shoddier execution."

The story is too old to be commented.

I really thought this might of been one of the games that showed the Kinect's potential to the core, including myself. I guess it's not...

Yeah it seems that Kinect does dancing games and casual titles well, but they are still finding themselves unable to deliver a hard core experience in motion gaming. I don't think they will find one this generation. I think the integration with Kinect 2.0 and the Xbox 720 is the best bet as it will be truly one with the system. There is still potential but like motion gaming this gen across all platforms have found ups and downs. Wii has some good ones like WarioWare. Move does shooting like a boss, Kinect does dance partying like a champ but finding the all out core experience is still a while ahead of us.

LOL.this was just a Kinect bashing session.

There was nothing in the article that even let me know this guy ACTUALLY played the game.

No plot, no actual campaign nuggets, nothing that was good about the game.

It's a hybrid and you use the controller for the heavy controls, but he focused on little parts that frustrated him because of HIS particuliar Kinect.

Which is always the review conundrum for every Kinect game. One guy will tell you that he couldnt get Kinect to work at all, but then you buy the game and it works like a charm.

Both Kinect Sports sold huge numbers because the word of mouth outdid the bad reviews they got.

LOL..but then again Steel Battalion may just be a bad game. But I'm definately going to rent it first and see for myself. Might be a unappreciated gem like the original beast.

Well it'll be interesting to see the Game Trailers vid and last but not least..the OXM review. If they trash it horribly then it pretty much means there is no redeeming qualities to the title..

@EVILDEAD360

WOW. I can feel the anger building inside of you. Calm down, think a little then come back.

As most people predicted all these motion control fad games would produce poor results.

'WOW. I can feel the anger building inside of you. Calm down, think a little then come back.'

LMAO @ pretending I'm mad beause you couldn't dispute one word.

So wait why are you here again? Oh don't worry we know already..lol.

On topic..every word prevails and at the end of the day OXM gave the game what it probably deserves a 75.

Either way checking it out for myself..so far from mad..

LMFAO @ Biggest still trolling for dollars after ALL this time.

Love how the usual susoects are sooo bothered that I called the review just like I saw it and said I'd give it a rent. My original comment stands..if OXM destroyed the game as much as IGN then the game was dead on arrival.

They didn't..

@ Edonus..

Yeah IGN already showed how they were going to bash all future Kinect games when they put out the Kinect hate blog awhile back.

But, hey they are entitled to their opinion.

But, this is simply Steel Batallion they could have given it 1..Don't let me show what N4G was like when that Gran Turimo 5 IGN review came out..

I still dig IGN this is their opinion..just a weakly written review

Edonus I hope your write about how good it is..
