In the battle against the fickle controls, the obtuse mission design, and the squandered potential of Steel Battalion, everyone loses.

Heavy Armor might be Kinect’s most spectacular failure, but it’s precisely because it’s so ambitious. The game genuinely tries to go where Kinect has never gone before, not only attempting to build a hardcore game around the device, but fully committing to do so in an immersive way. That it’s so disappointing is due in large part to us genuinely wanting it to be fun and functional.​

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor is punishingly hardcore. You will painstakingly learn the complex Kinect controls and make minor tactical errors on the battlefield that turn your spry mech into a pile of rubble in seconds. Suck it up and approach the experience with that in mind, and you’ll enjoy the game.

Sadly, you’re likely to spend more time doing battle with Heavy Armor’s atrocious Kinect controls than with enemy mechs.

Aiming to be the first Kinect game for the hardcore audience, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor fails miserably at the most fundamental necessity: motion controls that actually work. The story lacks any substance and can't make up for this horrid attempt at creating a follow-up to one of the most-revered mech-shooter series to date.
