Brutal Gamer: Battleship Review

Brutal Gamer's Zeth writes:

We’ll leave the slowly sinking movie to one side and deal with Battleship the video game on its own merits. Here we have a video game, based on a movie, which in turn is based on a board game that was based on a paper based time-killer. Want to add layers to that? How about making it a Halo inspired FPS that also incorporates a strategy light turn-based naval war game. More layers? Well sure, how about this being developed by a studio that previously gave us Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters and GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra... oh and they sprang out the merger between Shiny, The Collective and Foundation 9.

So how can developer Double Helix Games distil all this in to something cohesive and not just another move tie-in? Sadly, they can’t, despite some reasonable attempts at bringing some new ideas to play. (Battleship, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360) 4.5/10

Movie tie-ins almost never are, which is sad.

It's not necessarily "bad" it's just sooooooo average and over in 3 1/2 hours at most :(

As a rental it'll satisfy for a nights play for sure :)

One day, people will learn the difference between being crap, and being average.

Even if all I looked at was the score, I'd have com to the conclusion that it was an okay game. Not worth $60, but not so horrible it shouldn't be played, either. Just like most movie tie-in games.

Agreed. Yet oh so many people look a the score and think "Sub 7? Must be absolute balls then!". Where the actual fact is that, with 5 being average, a game of 4 - 6 is just very average with a few issues or high points :)
