Summary: Under no circumstances should anyone buy this game. The controls are awful with the mechs doing absolutely nothing you expect them to. As such, this game is simply unplayable. It's a waste of money at any price!
Summary: Terrible, the graphics were mediocre, maybe about gamecube equivelant, it didn't have a lasting appeal, the controls were horrible, and could the words go by any slower? The 'splosions and gun fire and chainsaws and all that sound stuff were good tho. I didn't get totally ripped off tho, because I got 007: QOS for free with it!
Summary: If you're familiar with video gaming lingo, you may have heard of the word "shovelware" which essentially means that the item in question is of very substandard quality and essentially useless and unfit for playing. Battle Rage fits that description completely. The game starts out promisingly enough with a nicely rendered montage of pictures and scrolling text (which goes by a bit too fast) setting the background for the game.
Summary: I really like the concept of this game, Mechwarrior like action on the Wii, but it just wasn't pulled off very well. The game feels unfinished almost like an Independent game and I'm kind of surprised it made it as a commercial product. Best of luck to the Game Dev's with the upcoming Battle Rage 2 it looks alot better. The game is somewhat fun..
Low budget,basic gameplay for advanced Wii gamers only!

Summary: I would suggest only picking this game up if 1. you see it in the clearence section cheaper[...]. 2. I would only advice someone who is good with controling the nunchucks & Wii remote at the same time. 3. If you do not have a large tv just pass. Even on a 55in tv and adjusting the camera view in the game I barely found good angles to fight during battle.
Summary: I bought this game for the sweet 15 dollar game sale! It was a little different because I really don't see much robot fighting games. This game is all about shooting and sharp blade slashing. The controls are very easy to get used to and the weapons and different robots are great. The only bad thing is the story line. It is basically an arcade where you beat several robots and win, then unlock a new robot and play arcade with it and beat arcade again to win a new robot.
Summary: Do not buy this. Pros. It's not expensive. Cons. Despite the big announcements from the publisher, it's not a 3D game. But even if it had 3D (they might release a 3D version in summer), it's a completely horrible game. The graphics are ugly. The controls are too difficult and complicated for a casual Wii gamer, and the game's too boring and not good enough to warrant any interest by a dedicated gamer. The initial reviews on the web are correct. They call it "shovelware".
