First, SB is under $100 used now. Price is not much an issue. The meat of the game -is- the controller, without it, yes, it would be a sub par vanilla mecha simulator; however, the controller exists, and adds so very much to the games experience. SB:LoC more than lives up to its reputation as a simulator as your are given control of weapon targeting/firing, zoom, speed, and must manage heat fuel hydraulic fluid levels/pressure, if your view screen gets dirty you have to press a button to clean it. If you get an internal fire, you must press a button to put it out. More often than not you will be walking on one direction, looking in an other direction, all the while firing in another. Its a lot to manage, but all lends itself to an amazing experience if mecha simulation is your thing.
My only gripe with Steel Battalion: Line of Contact would have to be Capcoms almost complete lack of support for the english version of the game and removal of the online campaign meta game. All that remains is the death match and team death match with all mecha unlocked. For that reason alone I cannot bring myself to give it a 10. So I declare this masterpiece of simulation a close 9
