  • Summary: Welcome to BattleBots, the sport of remote-controlled robotic combat. Based on the popular television series, you build your own customized, radio-controlled robots that employ an array of destructive weaponry such as hammers, saws and spikes. Watch the sparks fly as you duke it out in deadly arenas against your friends or one of the 16 actual BattleBots from the T.V. show. This is the ultimate contest of strategy and creativity where the goal is survival. Expand

    The gameplay simply isn't as tight as it should be. The care and time you take in building your bot is often wasted due to too many quirky design flaws.
  2. Buy this game for your younger Battlebot fan or if you are REALLY into the program. If not, you may just want to save some money and watch it on cable instead.
  3. Features 16 ready-made machines that are graded in four categories: mobility, power, weapons, and armor. [Dec 2002, p.222]
  4. Does have a certain charm about it, but not to the extent that anyone but die-hard fans of the TV series should risk their hard-earned dollars to play it.
  5. 50
    It's all the the service of a fighting game that doesn't work.
  6. If the graphics and animation were better on Beyond the Battlebox, this game would stand a chance. Unfortunately it's about as basic as you can get.
  7. A simple button masher that I couldn't lose, unless I tried to by not attacking at all. This game isn't good in the least.
