Frictionless Insight : Warhammer: Battle March Review

Kyle Ackerman writes "Warhammer: Battle March on the Xbox 360 makes me feel old. I love real-time strategy games, I love the Warhammer universe and I love my Xbox 360, but trying to play Warhammer: Battle March on the Xbox 360 makes me feel stupid and ambisinestrous. Just trying to complete the game's tutorials, I found myself thinking that this must be what my brother-in-law felt like when I tried to convince him that Bioshock would be easy after his experience on the Atari 2600. All the commands I use on the PC are here, but involve combinations of button presses like simultaneously holding down the right trigger, the left side of the D-Pad and the "B" button. It works, but it's not easy. I find it impossible to remember in the heat of battle. I suppose that Warhammer: Battle March is penance for that time I encountered a piteous fellow begging for items in the early days of Diablo II and told him to hit Alt-F4 to open up the trade window. He did, and now I'm paying for it by trying to learn the controls in Warhammer: Battle March for the Xbox 360."
