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.

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.

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.

The reviews that mention the game being unplayable due to Kinect controls almost seem like a conspiracy. I got this game recently and have been having a grand time with it. One of the best mech sims since the original to came out for the old school xbox.
The most important part is calibrating kinect before getting into the game and making sure you are far enough away so that you body is entirely visible by the sensor, especially your hands. You need to have a clear space around in front of the kinect and you cannot have microphone poles or lamps that have parts which to the kinect may look like an arm. Next you have to make sure that your movements are at moderate speed. Jerking your arm in any direction will result in loss of accuracy and you will hitting everything in the cockpit except the thing you want.
The story so far is a lot of fun to go through and makes sense. The interaction between characters is genuine and made better with good facial capture. There is perma-death for your squad in this game so losing someone because you messed up as the operator hits home. The sound is immersive and powerful making everything come alive during combat and during downtime. The graphics leave quite a bit to be desired, but the art direction and level design sell the atmosphere really well regardless. The game poses quite a significant amount of challenge to the player, and while it is no Dark Souls there is a learning curve here and you need to think strategically throughout the campaign if you want to survive.

I would have given this game five stars but there are two things that held it back for me. The first is that mission objectives are not always clear and obvious to find.

When I first heard the announcement of this game, I was ecstatic. Being such a fan of the original Steel Battalion, I was anxious to see how they would utilize the functions of the Kinect to make a true hard core title for us Kinect owners. One that doesn't involve us jumping in place or dancing. And I have to admit, they pretty much nailed it. The game itself is difficult, yes. That's one of the main complaints behind this game; that they teach you the ropes (and there are a lot of them) and then they just throw you in the middle of a beach assault. I died close to a dozen times before I finally managed to finish the level. But the satisfaction of beating these levels is what this game is all about. It didn't feel like the same feeling you got when you beat a level in Call of Duty or Gears or the next generic title; it felt rewarding.

The Kinect itself was a perfect companion for this title, as well. It recognized all the movements almost every time. Whenever it didn't, I realized that it was something that I was doing wrong; not holding my hand out long enough or just being overly spastic due to the high intensity of the gameplay. I was overly joyed by how well the Kinect and controller played together. Game studios need to take a lesson from Steel Battalion, even if it didn't sell well.

The one gripe that I have with this game is the co-op. But unfortunately, nothing can be done about it since the average reviews of this game keep it out of the hands of skeptics. When you get in a game with 4 players, the outcome is awesome. It's like a mech version of a scene from the Expendables. Everyone just decimates the enemy and reaps the benefits (customizable items. Another perk).
