As a game that fails to function in a means that properly allowed our reviewer to complete the game, it's my decision as Reviews Editor of Polygon to score Steel Battalion as we have.

This pretty much sums up the game.

I already have a Kinect, so I didn't bite on this deal, but I did buy the game on Amazon while it was on sale and I also used some Amazon credit. It did get shitty reviews so far, and the demo was hard as Fuck, but it still caught my attention enough to pick it up. Most of the Kinect games I like are the ones that get bad critic reviews (Fighters Uncaged, Blackwater, etc.), so I figured I would give this a chance anyway. Might be a mistake, but at least it will be a completely different and original mistake.

Sounds less painful than playing the game.

Is it just me, or does their seem like theirs an anti-kinect bias in the gaming media?

I played the demo and thought the Kinect integration blew chunks. It was cumbersome, and more often than not, does the wrong thing than what I wanted done. This is a Gamefly rental at best, IMO.

I think that is more the games' fault rather than some pointless agenda by the gaming press.

Yeah if a game is going to be the biggest turd since Superman 64, Aquaman, &/or Drake & the 99 Dragons then it deserves the hate it's getting.

That being said, it's essentially free credit to the trade program of your choice.

I don't know how anyone expected this to be good after video of it came out. It looks like Kinect was shoehorned in for QTEs. Even the old game wasn't that great. It was just fun to use the giant controller, especially if you like mechs in general.

From Software could have done well, but I'm guessing they were rushed or straight up told to make it bad like Capcom just did with Slant Six and Operation Raccoon City. But who knows, From does kind of bounce around quality-wise.

It got a 3 on Destructoid.

I was somewhat interested in the game.. but ouch. I already get frustrated enough using Kinect with games it's suppose to work ok with.

EDIT: I just saw that review up there. LOL! Reminds me of myself at how mad I get at the Kinect.

^--- my general issue with the Kinect as well. I also don't feel like anyone of the base Kinect stuff is truly wind-down material, since you have to be relatively active.

Giant Bomb's Quick Look is a nightmare of the Kinect just not working at all.

The Kinect makes for an *excellent* way to yell at Netflix to pause, and it works about 50% of the time! :lol:

I don't think it matters if this retailed for $300, Amazon wants to unload their useless lumps of data anyway possible.

Check out @RealKrakrabbit - Twitter Page Full of News, Tidbits, etc., etc.

 

Also looking to make trades/sells to anyone who is interested. Check out my tradelist! :grouphug:

Motion controls in general.
Also, Kinect is garbage.
