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. Yes folks I refer of course to Battleship by Activision, Hasbro and Double Helix Games (Xbox/ps3), Magic Pockets (Wii/3DS/DS) a first person shooter (FPS) with a bit of a twist.
Excerpt: Battleship, the board game, is excellent. Everything else that the franchise has bombarded us within the last few months is not. The idea that a movie, let alone a good one, could be drawn out of Battleship is a tenuous notion at best. The general public seemed to agree, with Battleship the movie flopping critically and commercially. A Battleship videogame, at least in concept, seems a better fit for the board game.
Excerpt: This is probably the first time in what seems like ages that we’ve seen a video game based on a film based on a popular board game. And judging by what we played through, here’s hoping that it’s the last. Battleship the Video Game tries to recreate the “intensity” (we use that word lightly) of the film, taking on an alternate storyline that ties in with the movie’s.
Excerpt: Just to be clear, this Battleship is not based on Milton Bradley’s beloved naval strategy game for children of all ages. It is, however, based on this summer's ridiculous-looking film starring CGI aliens and Rihanna that is very loosely inspired by the aforementioned kid’s classic, which explains why Battleship is primarily a first-person shooter and not, say, a strategy game.
Conclusion: The game itself is only around 4 hours long if you take your time. Even achievements wise just by playing the game normally you’ll unlock the majority of the achievements. Overall, this game really isn’t worth anyones time. In the end it is just another generic movie game.
Summary: It’s never good to start a review on a negative but with Battleship I feel I have no other option. Based on the movie 'Battleship', Battleship The Videogame falls into the same old familiar trap of a movie-based video game. A rushed, quality-lacking, repetitive and very little replay value game which leaves you feeling like the sole purpose of the game was to make a quick buck. Here’s why Battleship falls into that category.
Pros: It reminded me to play the original Battleships game, No multiplayer
Excerpt: Quand un (supposé) blockbuster sort au ciné, on a le droit à sa version jeu vidéo. C’est comme cela, on n’y peut rien, tout comme la chute des feuilles en automne. Et le jeu est souvent mauvais. C’est comme ça…. A défaut de jouer la carte de la profondeur scénaristique, le film Battleship impose une mise en scène et des effets spéciaux hallucinants. Le jeu Battleship, lui, n’a ni l’un, ni l’autre.
Pros: - Mélange de FPS et de combats navals, - L’interaction entre les deux types de combat pour progresser
Cons: - Particulièrement moche, - IA pitoyable, - Extrêmement répétitif et lassant, - Points de sauvegarde placés un peu n’importe comment, - Sans saveur, sans intérêt, - Même pas l’ombre d’un pseudo mode multijoueur
