Excerpt: There are plenty of games on the market that are based on either a board game, or a movie, this is the first time I have come across a game, that is based on a movie, that is based on a board game.
Summary: " Battleship: The Videogame " is an interesting concept mixing a variety of different game styles yet non of them prove particularly entertaining.

Conclusion: There’s not a whole lot more that I can say about this game because there really isn’t that much to it. I hate to speak ill of games because I know how much work goes in to them usually but this one just seemed rushed and passionless.
