It succeeds to giveAn amazing mixture of RTS with proper action elements, it is a diamond of a game in a lake full of muddy attempts. It succeeds to give importance to all aspects of game-play without sacrificing anything, not even the story. The combination of building an army to support you at the same time you can personally defend your troops in battle is achieved seamlessly like no other game in the history of PC gaming. This was already seen in the original Battlezone, but improved graphics, streamlined controls and fun game-play will pump adrenaline into your system both in single and multi-player modes. Extra fun on lan games!… Full Review »

Ever play Starcraft or any other RTS and wish you could pilot/drive the vehicles as well as build bases while collecting resources? Well, with Battlezon/Battlezone II, you can.
How would you fare driving a hovertank while fighting off other players - with many different weapon types - in hovercraft, treaded tanks or walkers - yes, walkers - while protecting your resource gathering efforts and building, commanding, expanding, protecting, and upgrading your base?
Not well, I think. This game is for the serious gamer and not for the faint of heart or casual player at all.
And then there's the mods, with more races with more weapons and capabilities and more campaigns.
If you want a unique and challenging gaming experience, complete modability, and support from the original programmers who continue to upgrade it (DX9, Lua, bug fixes, etc.) this is the game for you.
Strategy (human vs. human teams)
MPI (human team versus AI team)
Deathmatch (human vs human, human vs AI, teams or no teams)
King of The Hill
Capture The Flag
Strategy Capture The Flag (CTF with bases)
Free For All (2..4 human bases)

Awesome single-player campaign, and astoundingly deep, well-balanced, competitive team-based multiplayer. This is my only 10/10 on here, and will remain the only 10/10 short of another miracle of PC gaming.… Full Review »
