    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.

    A PSN game based on the new movie. This game is a first person shooter and the only thing you have to do is kill every alien that comes on your path. The graphical style is unique and nice, but the rest of the game isn't great. It's repetitive and boring and the audio is bad.

    Although the looks of Battle: Los Angeles are acceptable, the length of the game is not. The price doesn't justify the quality of the game and you'll find yourself longing for a good game even before you reach the end of this incredibly mediocre game, that doesn't even last two hours.

    I realise first person shooters are getting shorter these days, but, come on. Did Saber Interactive really imagine that releasing a movie tie-in that you can sleepwalk through inside an hour was going to be acceptable?

    Easy, short, linear and with embarrasing flaws in AI, this game is a huge disappointment.
  7. A pitiful tie-in to a sub-standard movie. [June 2011, p.111]

    A by-the-numbers shooter that fails to take advantage of its license.

    Like poking a dead bluebird with a stick. For a few seconds you're fascinated by the grotesque, then you walk away, disgusted.

    If you take more than 30 minutes to finish this game, then you're really bad at it. Yes, it is that short. Visuals and audio are very weak,If you take more than 30 minutes to finish this game, then you're really bad at it. Yes, it is that short. Visuals and audio are very weak, and it feels like a really poor CoD ripoff with aliens in it. Yeah, a typical movie-licensed game. Not even worth the 10 bucks. Full Review »
