  1. Forget this Killing Tide (you can, in fact, die by boredom) and look for a more exciting war sim (Battlestation should do the trick).
  2. Naval Assault – The killing tide should have been an arcade game. It would have been a good advice to 505 Games to do so. But they decided to release it as a full-price game. But for this, it is too simple and its gameplay is too stupid.
  3. 45
    If Naval Assault had been a downloadable Xbox Live Arcade title, it would have been easy to forgive a lot of its shortcomings. Unfortunately, it's not; it looks like a last-gen game, with some of the worst sound design and music I've seen in a retail release, no mid-mission checkpoints, and most importantly, not much to hold one's interest for more than a few fleeting moments.
  4. Truly "sub"-standard. [Aug 2010, p.105]
  5. Online deathmatches are an abandoned ship. [Sept 2010, p.81]
  6. 40
    A disappointment all around. Fans of the genre will scoff at the visuals and simplicity, while more casual players will grow bored of its tedious missions and slow-paced gameplay.
  7. This would have been a shoddy effort as an Xbox Live Arcade title, but seeing it on a store shelf is less of a salute to the military's naval forces, and more of a slap in their faces.
