Average User Score: 7.9Aug 2, 2012Excellent singleplayer game. corridor style - but what a corridor! the transforms are fast and done very well. weapons are really good and varied, crates well-placed and not too obvious.
each mission is physically long and challenging. some of the later ones are very challenging. it's beautiful, too. was playing and checked my graphics and they were set to medium - and it looked great. bumped it up to high and it was gorgeous.
the story is excellent!
it's on sale on steam right now for 75% off for $7.50, so just get it.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.4Jul 31, 2012I have been playing Battlezone for 14 years and Battlezone II for 12 years now and have spent many hundreds of dollars on other games, yet I have not found any other game that compares to Battlezone or Battlezone II.

Ever play Starcraft or any other RTS and wish you could pilot/drive the vehicles as well as build bases while collecting resources? Well, with Battlezon/Battlezone II, you can.
How would you fare driving a hovertank while fighting off other players - with many different weapon types - in hovercraft, treaded tanks or walkers - yes, walkers - while protecting your resource gathering efforts and building, commanding, expanding, protecting, and upgrading your base?
Not well, I think. This game is for the serious gamer and not for the faint of heart or casual player at all.
And then there's the mods, with more races with more weapons and capabilities and more campaigns.
If you want a unique and challenging gaming experience, complete modability, and support from the original programmers who continue to upgrade it (DX9, Lua, bug fixes, etc.) this is the game for you.
