The combat looks flashy, but isn't very deep. B.O.S.S. mech's flowery and protracted barrages of death are activated by single buttons, and the regular fighter's moves tend to fall into the categories of, "probably never going to connect with your little sister's mech" or "go ahead and shoot this the wrong direction it doesn't matter," without much in between. This might cut it for an Xbox Live download, but you just aren't getting the customizability you deserve for a $59.99 suggested retail value. The mechs should be alterable beyond their colors. There should be more than 8 levels to play, and they should be more than just wallpaper. The story should be... well it's too late for the story. And the multiplayer needs more than one-on-one deathmatches.
