    This is another game on the long list of uninspired games based on film licenses.

    If you get it for nothing, give it a half an hour. If you don't, don't. [Issue#219, p.81]

    The graphics and presentation are bland. There are only three enemy types to dispose of. There is no multiplayer. Other than collecting in-game pegs inspired from the board game, replayability scarcely exists.
  4. There's an element of novelty in the first few minutes of play, but it doesn't last long. It isn't even the sketchy gameplay that sinks this Battleship – it's the abhorrently commercial objective apparent in every second of rushed gameplay. There's no artistic vision here, and the original idea at its core hasn't been given the time and love needed to build a coherent or enjoyable game.

    The gameplay, inferior graphics, and "kill all aliens" story hover so staunchly between terrible and mediocre that we couldn't recommend Battleship even if it were a $15 download. [Aug 2012, p.87]

    A piece of trash as expected. Do your fellow gamer a favor: when you see Battleship in your local game store, cover it with a copy of a better game. People will thank you for it.

The graphics are ok, and the voice quality is ok too. I reccomend to not waste 30 or 40 dollars on this game. Full Review »

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. When taking into consideration the uniqueness of the genre Battleship enters, one could say it's one in its own. Never in the history of Video games has a game been released that revolutionized board games. However putting this aside, as a FPS and action game your better off playing with a stick. It lacks the capacity to keep one interested never mind entertained. You are better off playing the table top version that isn't being destroyed by hollywood. Full Review »
