May 19, 2012It is a good game for a day, but expect no more than a version of Advance Wars.
The graphics are not bad. The sound is fine. The controls doesn't justify the use of the Nunchuk, but since it is a strategy game, it doesn't matter.
It is not a bad game, it's just that it isn't good.
Jun 14, 2012When compared to any other strategy game on the market, Battleship has nothing distinctive to offer. The attempt to add in some action with the duel mode is a neat, but ultimately flawed, idea. The fact that it borrows so heavily from Advance Wars doesn't help, forcing players to continually compare it to better titles. If you're absolutely dying for Advance Wars on the Wii, there aren't really better options, but that is about the game's only selling point. For everyone else, it will be a bland and forgettable adventure.
May 29, 2012If anything is wrong with Battleship, it is that there is nothing remarkable about it. The game is fun and challenging, but bogged down by the very movie that inspired it. It might have also benefited from some sort of multiplayer option, but as it stands, you could buy far worse on the Wii.
