    Buggy and unfinished - a shameful, full-priced add-on pack tarnishing the original Battalion's golden legacy. [May 2004, p.87]

    Capcom may well have delivered a game that can offer an online experience like nothing else currently available, but it's presented in such a haphazard fashion that many gamers will grow frustrated with the connection problems and simply go back to their other online titles. [May 2004, p.106]

    The coolest game ever! Almost like your actually piloting a real mech. Great graphics, destructive environments, and a huge 40+ button The coolest game ever!

    Its gotta be the most overpriced p.o.s. i've ever played. Whats with the useless buttons? Flipping useless switches to start the Its gotta be the most overpriced p.o.s. i've ever played. Whats with the useless buttons? Flipping useless switches to start the freakin' engine. Whats up with that? and finally, after the 20 minutes of flipping retarted switches and buttons and ignition switches and pedals (you get my drift) you then are launched to an extremely low graffic game of dark squares blasting you with little yellow flairs!... Also, you can't play this game anywhere near a friend because they get so sick of waiting that before you even launch, they press the eject button and force you to go through another 20 mins of setup. Bottom line: If there was a convention of burning games (Much like the old fashoned burning books) this game would be on the top of the list along with it's $200 box of useless buttons and colorful stickers.
