In Steel Battalion, you'll experience the mechanized warfare of the future, today! Comes with special controller; cannot be played with standard Xbox gamepad
Steel Battalion players operate a strategic, battle mech weapon through 12 action-packed levels, fending off dozens of adversaries while attempting to diffuse a riot that has ensued on a Pacific island ruled by a military dictatorship. Players use a diverse arsenal, including plasma torches and an MK21-6 twin-pod rocket launcher. The game includes an exclusive 40-button controller that has been designed to immerse the player in the role of a VT (Vertical Tank) pilot. It includes trigger buttons to fire weapons; foot pedals to accelerate, boost, and brake; and levers to shift gears and move left to right. Gamers must use the full potential of their VT's abilities in order to survive the battlefield. Mastering the controls of this tactical vehicle allows players to feel as if the VT is part of their own bodies.

You can get the controller to work with PC evidently, although the right joystick (which is pretty inconsistently stiff, and not because it's old/used) does not recenter itself because the game is designed around a crosshair that moves across the screen and stays there for aiming. That works well for MechWarrior 3, which can play like that, but not any other PC games I can think of. There is a smaller thumbstick on the left joystick that does recenter itself.
All the buttons light up and fade in and out and it looks awesome. The controller is very sturdy and seems like something that should probably cost more. Luckily, the game itself is great. It sure would suck if it was no good. I'm not sure how much depth or replayability the game has because I haven't beaten it. I hear the game gets way harder which is a scary thought.
Overall if you are way into this concept and have around $200 to blow, I would not UNrecommend it.
Steel Battalion itself takes time to get the hang of. It has been compared to "driving a manual transmission car...while juggling." However, the difficulty only adds to the realism. Your mech moves very realistically, with varying acceleration and even the ability to fall over if you move too quickly. The controller has an eject button, and if you don't use it, there are consequences for dying. You'll have to discover those for yourself. Once you get the hang of the game, it is very enjoyably and truly challenging.
