Really Bad

Did this get QA'ed?

I thought all the bad reviews I had seen were, well, just being negative to be negative. I had played the demo and didn't believe the Kinect controls were too bad.

Then the steep learning curve of the actual game levels set in. You go from the demo level as your first taste of operating a mech with Kinect, straight into a war zone. You will die. Many times. Again. And again.

As I sit just trying to pull down my periscope, I'm opening and closing the vent, looking out the viewfinder, closing the viewfinder, looking right and looking left. I just wanted to shoot something, but I got so tired of seeing my phantom hand floating on the screen doing just about everything else other than what I wanted.

Add that Kinect difficulty with the sheer difficulty of the levels and you will quit in frustration.

I'm not kidding.

You will. (Hence the glory that is Gamefly.)

Clunky Kinect controls make the game more or less unplayable. Unless you have ideal Kinect conditions it is unlikely you will be able to get through the tutorial.

Very Good

Clunky but fun

Many people complain about the clunky controls to this game and perhaps rightfully so. However I was able to see past it and enjoy it. The graphics could stand to be a lot better but for what it is, a first person tank command game, I had a lot of fun.
