Midgety Review – Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor
Mech Shooter (warning: Kinect bollocks required)
Madman at the wheel.
Steel Battalion is a Kinect mech game that makes you think ‘this is going to be crap’ and it is to begin with. You start to learn the “nuanced” controls and it seems a bit hard but manageable. Then the difficulty jumps of a cliff and you stop playing. There’s a level where you’re completely exposed and have to hit a tank three times your size ten times while you ‘dodge’ the one or two shells it takes to kill you. I wanted to stand up for this game but there’s no defending it. Jase
