I hope IGN won’t be mad that I copied this bit from their Insider review, but Aaron Boulding said something very true and I want to recognize it.
“The hardcore gamers are probably already getting their mech on, but for the rest of the gaming population out there, I’d say go in with three of your friends to get this game and take turns playing through it. That would be $50 well spent.”
Yes! He is describing the only sensible approach to Steel Battalion. This is exactly the way we did it, and we filled out the price with trade-ins on shit we were done with. It’s very difficult to quantify what 200 dollars worth of gaming would look like, so why even expose yourself to that kind of philosophical issue?
