Story

Set in 2082, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor depicts a world devoid of semiconductors, where war is waged with rudimentary weapons as new superpowers struggle for dominance. In a twist of fate, the U.S. army has been forced to begin major landing operations on what was once its own soil. In this low-tech era, there is one weapon class that will determine the course of the war – the Vertical Tank (VT). Playing as pilot Lt. Powers, players control one such VT as he embarks on a mission that will see the action shift from North America to battlefields and war-torn streets across the globe.

Unprecedented Control

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor delivers an unprecedented level of control and interaction. VT movement, aiming and firing of the main guns are undertaken using the Xbox 360 controller. A wide variety of other combat-crucial actions are done through Kinect for Xbox 360 with upper body gestures - from starting the engine, to operating the scope or manning the turret-mounted machine gun. Kinect for Xbox 360 also provides a means of interacting with your fellow crew members. These range from ensuring a panicked crew member stays focused, to a high five for successfully completing a mission.

Online Co-op Play

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor introduces a brand new four player online co-op mode via Xbox LIVE. Work together with your friends on a variety of maps to destroy a set amount of enemies and unlock new items to customize your VT with. In addition to this, you can unlock Xbox achievements by playing Score Attack mode where you and your friends will be rated based on performance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the critics rated June 24, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have played through about half of the game and will update if anything changes, however I can say that Steel Battalion Heavy Armor did not deserve the panning the critics gave it.

I consider myself a core gamer, however I have no hate for Kinect, Move, Wii, or Wii-U Tablet. I believe they can compliment core games. Steel Battalion is a core game for Kinect. It is definitely not a casual friendly game. The truth is, it's not a friendly game at all. It has a good amount of challenge (although it is not as challenging as its predecessors on the Xbox). You will feel the adrenaline rush of being in a cramped tank/mech and it is easy to get lost in the moment and begin to start "flailing." This is where you will find frustration. YOU CANNOT FLAIL.

Just to paraphrase a Kotaku review of the game, they claimed that it took 10 hours to get through the first two missions in the game. Now either I am in the wrong profession or I was just able to have Kinect properly calibrated and play "within control" because I was able to complete those missions within one hour. This is a difficult game and at times it is extremely frustrating. I ended up having to completely replay a mission because of some cheap AI sneaking behind your mech in a scripted event and launching an RPG. This had shattered my viewport and my periscope so I was more or less "screwed."

That's the thing with this game, if you make mistakes, you will likely have to replay with the knowledge you had before. It's funny that the critics loved Dark Souls and Demon Souls as I understand that From Software made those games as well. However they completely hate the same idea here because it is a Kinect game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unusable January 3, 2013
By Quasar
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This game had an interesting concept and I was excited to try it out. The tutorial is one of the worst I've ever tried to endure and it the awful Kinect controls made the game unplayable. The standard Xbox controller is used for all of the interesting stuff (moving and shooting) while the Kinect controls serve as annoying add-ons that don't seem to enhance the playing experience (pulling a lever to run faster, or hitting the console to change weapons) and the actions aren't accurately recognized.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible user experience June 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This is my first negative review. This game is a frustrating experience. The Kinect driven controls do not work well. I am constantly focusing on trying to get the control to work and lose track of the game itself, thus, rather than adding to the game experience, it greatly detracts.
I have other kinect games and have no problem with any of them, including the exercise ones that rely on accruate mapping of the body.
I tried to return it, but am two days past the return date... did not realize I did not have the usual thirty days so kept trying to see if I could get it right over the weekend. My bad. The first crack out of the box I should have returned it.
Unless you have a high tolerance for frustration, stay away from this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor Review June 19, 2012
By Austin
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I just picked this up today and I am having a really good time with it. The game is hard, as in a lot of challenge, not controls. I personally haven't had really any issues with the controls. Just make sure you have your kinect properly set up and sit in proper range for it to read what you are doing. I have only on occasion accidentally grabbed the wrong control in the tank, but for the most part it has been pretty spot on for me. I recommend going through the tutorial a few times to get everything down, that's what I did, before going into a combat mission. The reviews have been rough for it, and I can understand. I think that the biggest problem people are having is getting a feel for where you need to put your hands to grab the right things. My advice would be to rent it first to see what you think, but I personally really like it. Once you get a feel for where you need to reach your hands for each individual control, it isn't a problem. As far as people saying that they can't lean forward, or go right back in their seat if they do hasn't been an issue for me. Don't lean your body forward, you just put your hands forward (even with controller in hand) and you will move forward. Put your hands forward again to sit back. I would say that if you are interested, it is a really fun game, but you will need a little patience at first to get a feel for the kinect controls.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty ok for me June 25, 2012
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Well to start off by saying that the game is pretty darn good. Not bad for a first war game on Kinect. I really like the game because you can control the robot or whatever you want to call it. But when you get in the missions, it is pretty darn hard because they expect you to be quick on the missions. Yea, it is like war speed like you have to react quicker with the objectives.

Graphics- 8/10

gameplay- 7/10

Sound- 9/10

Story- 8/10

Kinect controls- 6/10

I dont have much to say about this game. It is really up to you to get it or try the demo.
The game is not that bad.. I bought it because i thought it was very cool and you can control by using the Kinect.
At first, i didnt know you have to use a chair to actually play the game. I had some difficulties when i was going through the steps lol. There are only two steps and i couldnt pass the second step. It took only a couple of hours to figure it out. The chair solved it.lol So it really up to you to get the game and to try it out..
