I have the game and its amazing. The feeling you get from it when you play is like nothing else. I am glad I picked it up.

Steel Battalion is seriously the best big robot game ever. I loved the Mechwarrior series and this tops it big time. Nothing beats the feeling of getting this big hunk of metal to handle like a sports car once you mastered the controls. It'll take awhile to get used to the controls, but once you do, it is very very enjoyable. Do not let a first few missions discourage you! That is my advice.

I don't have it now. I rented it over this weekend. Great game! Will be getting my copy when it comes in at work.

Premium Xbox, where did you rent this? I thought nobody was renting out Steel Battalion due to its high cost and bulky controller.

It's a local video store, in Michigan. You have to put up $200 (cash, check, credit card) when you rent it. When you bring it back you get $196.75 back ($3.25 to rent for 3 days). Only the main store has it though. A friend who work's there said that the store is selling the copy soon. People have offered up to $350 for it. So the owner is selling it.

Ah ok, so not a chain store. Figured chain stores wouldn't carry it. At least more people get to try it out that way though.

And that mission 7 is horrible. The last Jarc. took me forever to beat, but the easiest method I found out was just to rush that thing w/ the plasma torch.

Got mine from EB brick and mortar. Ordered it Tuesday and had it Friday. It is top of the heap in my opinion. Steel, Halo, and SC. The trinity of console gaming imho.
