Check out our Steel Battalion review. Since G4 added half-stars to our review system, we've been waiting for the day a game would sink to the level of a half-star. That day has come. Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, a Kinect-powered mech simulator, isn't even good enough to earn more than a fraction of a star.
The main problem: It just doesn't work. Reviewer Alex Rubens explains in his Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor review:
"If I held out on hand and moved it slowly toward the button, it would occasionally hover over the button, but I couldn’t for the life of me actually push the button. Well, It was very easy to push the button, but only if I was trying to do something else in the cockpit. The buttons, switches, and levers are all placed so closely together that it was much too easy to be moving toward one lever but grab another by mistake. I don't know how many times I've reached for a button and ended up pulling down the periscope instead or somehow managed to fill the cockpit with smoke because it interpreted my movement incorrectly."
