    The game is thirty minutes long and costs ten dollars. That's thirty three cents a minute to play this game. You'll get better value out of a psychic hotline.

    The game lacks variety, but it also doesn't outstay its welcome. If you want some laughs and don't mind that the shooting experience is average at best, playing through this alien invasion is probably more entertaining than the movie and you'll get some Achievements/Trophies out of it.

    Being a cheap downloadable game is not an excuse for this. Extremely short campaign, really low production values and lack of alternative modes or multiplayer make this an extremely poor deal. There are cheaper games that offer so much more than this.

    A pointless waste of money. [May 2011, p.109]

    Good grief--I could buy Half-Life 2 with that $10. [Aug 2011, p.76]

    Battle: Los Angeles looks, plays and entertains as some Uwe Boll of game word took it and created it with the support of an enthusiastic circle of amateur programmers. [Issue#203]

    1.5 Gbytes of data. 10 US dollars. 45 minutes of gameplay. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new winner for the title of the shortest commercially available first-person shooter. You've seen the bad movie – now play a crappy game.

    This game is actually pretty good, the graphics are pretty good and the game-play is your average FPS so in other words not bad. The game does end loosely and it is very short, only took me about an hour. But if this had a longer campaign and multiplayer this would be great. I would give this game a 7/10. Expand

    Ok to kill time.. what you expect for the price. The graphics are okay the game is linear the dialogue is joke. The cut scenes are stills. I wasn't expecting much but I don't think I wasted the money. Expand

    good thing i bought this on a sale for 2.50$ from steam.only reason i even gave it a score of 1, is because of the great graphics. the game is short as hell! less than an hour, theres like only 3 weapons! the gameplay sucks, i am not sure if there even was a story, this seems to me more like a joke rather than a game. i have no idea who made it and i rather not know, all i want to say is that this game sucks soooo much!!!! worst 2.50$ spent ever!

    This game is not worth buying. It's cheap and the cut scenes are still. If you're planning to buy this, reconsider that decision. Like the movie, it's not worth watching or buying. Forget about buying the game and save up for something else that's worth. Expand

    Not sure about the entertainment factor but with that being said: You could probably go out and buy the film for cheaper in the bargain bin and it would certainly last longer than this would ever do. Nothing but a cheap cash in at making a bit of money of a not very good franchise to begin with. Expand

    Wow, what a waste of money this game was. It last all of about an hour if you explore everything. I couldn't believe that it cost $10. I feel swindled.
    As for the game, it's ok I suppose. I would've expected the cut-scenes to at least be animated. They're just cell-shaded cartoons. Don't buy this game and waste your money.

    This game is a piece of **** nothing is good on this game, it's only created for cash during the release of the film. Do not buy it guy's. The life of the game is about 1-2 miserable hours. I repeat, don't buy it. Expand
