The Kinect features suck on this game

The graphics are nice, but that is about the only thing about the game that was decent. There are no difficulty selections (rookie, normal, etc...), and the game has too many functions that use the Kinect feature. It was very frustrating having to stop playing the game because I needed to do something through the Kinect. This is one game that never should have used the Kinect function. I can't even begin to describe how frustrating it was trying to play this game. Didn't even get halfway through before I sent it back.

Excellent

Slight adjustment period

I had a slight adjustment period for this, and every once in a while the kinect just gets a mind of it's own and the realism is lost. When it works, it works, and it is phenominal. In a generation that just no longer has mech games, steel battalion finally fills that gap. Be patient, it takes some work to get used to it and set it up properly, but once you get the feel for when to be seated and how to move, the game is awesome.

Bad For Kinect

It has a good story line but the way its set up to play with kinect is very complicated. It was hard just trying to grab and push buttons required to maneuver through the game.
