OXCGN’s Battleship Review
Who sunk our battleship?

When one thinks of Battleship, the first thing that comes to mind is a grid-based game which largely involves a lot of guessing.
Well, Double Helix games decided to go in a different direction with their video game interpretation of ‘Battleship’, based on the recently released movie.
When I put the game into my Xbox the last thing I expected was a first person shooter but guess what, that’s exactly what it is.
If you’re anything like me, you would be simultaneously disappointed and excited by this prospect.
Disappointed because Battleship didn’t actually need much improvement being the amazing game it already was and excited because first person shooters are my favourite genre.
Is this battleship sunk?

OXCGN Reviews Hasbro Family Game Night – Battleship

Outside of actual gameplay, there are several factors I find you can look at to determine whether a game was bad or not. If writing about the game was more enjoyable than actually playing it, it’s probably a bad game.
If you suddenly become acutely aware of every tiny mess around your home that demands your immediate attention, its probably bad.
And if you find yourself day-dreaming about introducing the broken remnants of the game’s disc to the flesh of it’s creator, it seems safe to assume the game is not a great game. EA’s Battleship only managed to hit two out of three, but whether that’s due to it not being available on disc for Xbox360, or because its not quite that bad is a matter of perspective.
Check the Battle out here . . .
