  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] The original tank vs. tank action classic Battlezone has received an Xbox LIVE overhaul, adding new multiplayer modes including Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag. This updated version also includes the original game. Additionally, players can use the Xbox LIVE Vision camera to watch live video of their opponents. Combine these features with new special effects for weapon firing, impacts and explosions, and you have the killer arcade classic as you've never experienced it before. [Atari] Expand

  1. Battlezone is definitely one of those old games that has been vastly surpassed by present-day titles, but it still has the gameplay appeal to make it worth a look.

    Despite its faults, for old school gamers this trip down memory lane is worth the low price of admission, but for others it'll get tiresome quick.
  3. This is a rather sluggish shooter that demands a real love of the old arcade cabinet to really get excited over. But it is a nice trip down memory lane, still extremely playable, features some nice multiplayer options, and the enhanced mode is actually nice to look at and fun to play.
  4. One of Atari's better visual upgrades, but not nearly as much fun 28 years after it first hit arcades. [July 2008, p.96]
  5. You're left roaming the virtual landscape, hoping opposition might come your way. [Issue#33, p.117]
  6. Overall Battlezone offers little life span and just feels outdated.
  7. In conclusion, Battlezone joins that ragged band of Xbox Live Arcade titles that, even for a mere 400 points, don’t deserve to grace your hard drive.
