A decent game true to the classic version
I liked the 3D ships and missiles. the game plays along the classic lines. You can move all five ships prior to play. You can either select classic or one Shot or Salvo for five shots. Super Weapons is a new entry. I prefer the Salvo option. You will not win every game. Play seems fair. Worth a try if you like the original game.

Good idea, but so boring. I think this game is for fans. Unfortunately, I do not belong.

The concept of Battleships is quite simple and enjoyable, but I didn't like this game for several reasons:
The graphics are a bit weird. 3D is not needed, and the constant waves got on my nerves as it was the same over and over.
I found it difficult to tell if my ship was destroyed or not, as it wasn't obvious by the graphics of the exploding ship - until I realised ship status was at the bottom of the graph.
I found the noise truly AWFUL. It was all or nothing. The constant sound of the waves crashing and the thunder and lightning was irritating.
If you hit a target, you don't get another go straight away, as in normal battleship.
The game was monotonous. I actually quite like Battleships, but it took so long for each go, it was frustrating.
When the game crashed after 10 minutes, I left. I was thinking of doing so anyway.
(I have repeated this review elsewhere, so sorry if you've read this twice).

It was very boring, I've always loved batttleship as a child and still to, but this game was very boring, if you had to be able to see the firering of the bombs and the hits all on the same screen instead of moving from one shot to another it might have been more interesting.

Waste of time, even for free trial
I love Battleship, but this game is horrible! If you are going to play a Battleship game play Battleship: Fleet Command, it is 100x better than this game!!!!

Have always enjoyed Battleship but this one Itdoesn't explain how to use your weapons you've earned, l.e. airplane strike, shield et al. Superweapons fine but the others I'm not able to use at all.
