  1. At first glance, Battalion Wars may look like a cartoon with campy echoes of old suspense movies. But, make no mistake about it, in the end this game successfully grasps the full potential of the Gamecube.
  2. Brilliant fun. An absolute blast from start to finish and, without question, the best action strategy game available. [NGC]
  3. The character design and animation are absolutely brilliant. [Nov p.92]
  4. The game gives you a great feel of control, allowing you to give orders to your units with the press of a button.
  5. The only severe flaw holding Battalion Wars back from the truly elite is its serious lack of content. Everything the game has to offer is strictly tied to the campaign, which only lasts about five hours in total clock time.
  6. 88
    With tight control, mostly intuitive squad management, a wide assortment of soldier and vehicle types, great physics, and huge landscapes upon which epic wars wage, Battalion Wars is a blast.
