Battle Chess

Interplay 1989
Genre: Puzzle, Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Behold the most unusual and exotic chess game yet, where all the pieces have been brought to life and are ready to re-enact in combat mode what has up till now lingered in your fancy only (if at all). In this game you enjoy not only the great many entangled schemes and clever tactics of capturing and checkmating your opponent as per established tradition, but also the great many ways of graphic violence and execution which is the house special here and possible only in a computer game. Hence Battle Chess.


Battle City

Namco 1985
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: NES

Nobody can doubt that a simple game can be lots of fun. You just need an interesting idea, like tanks shooting each other on destructible terrain, and there you are, with a great and original classic in your hands.


Battle for Wesnoth

Various 2004
Genre: Strategy, RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Even people who don't really follow the development in this 'scene' will know that there are countless 'open source game projects' floating around the Internet. Many of them remakes of classic concepts, some highly original. Most are nowhere near a finished state. What you can see on their homepages is usually a 'roadmap' outlining what still needs to be done (pretty much everything), and a few early screenshots. Sometimes, you can even download some kind of 'alpha engine' which doesn't really do anything so far. Experience tells that more than 90% of these projects are abandoned before they've achieved anything.


Battle Isle

Blue Byte 1991
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Battle Isle - the game which got two different groups of games into public focus: wargames and German games. Both had had their loyal fan-base before, but both had been small. Tactical wargames turned into a very popular genre following this game. German games stayed a niche market in spite of this game's success.


Battle Isle 2

Blue Byte 1993
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

After two mission disks and the differently themed History Line: 1914-1918, Blue Byte followed their more successful game to date up with a real sequel. The evil robot armies are back and the Drullians saw no other way than to kidnap a great strategist to lead their armies - you. Stories have never been a strong point in strategy games (that made it even more surprising that a 'novelization' of the story actually came with the game).


Battle Isle 3: Schatten des Imperators

Blue Byte 1995
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

"Well, if SSI can do it with their Panzer General games, so can we!", Blue Byte must have thought. What they did here was simply porting their successful Battle Isle 2 engine to Windows, made new missions and bam – new release! Guaranteed hit! Well, not quite.


Battle Squadron: The Destruction Of The Barrax Empire

Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6

System: Amiga
Rewiewing games belonging to genres which are governed by very strong conventions is not much fun. All too often, you fall back to just going through the motions, performing a mental checklist. Which, not incidentally, is one of the main reasons I rarely dive into shoot 'em ups. It's not a seen-one-seen-'em-all genre, but it is sort of discussed-one-discussed-'em-all. Still, there are some which simply shouldn't go unmentioned. This can be for various reasons, like general popularity, coming from a noteworthy company or even indeed doing something a little different.

Battles of Napoleon

SSI 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

You know, some time ago (about 200 years or so...), there was a great man (I avoid saying 'big' at his 1.60m height) who liked war. Maybe a bit of a pertinent introduction, but no matter if you are French of Anglo-Saxon, you are going to enjoy this.


BattleTech: The Crescent Hawk's Inception

Westwood / Infocom 1988
Genre: Strategy, RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A unique blend of role-playing, tactical strategy and adventure, Battletech: The Crescent Hawk Inception was one of Infocom's first forays into graphical gaming. For years, the company ruled the text-based gaming, and with this ambitious product, wanted to cross over to the increasingly popular graphics-based games. Developed by Westwood's finest, the game became immensely popular, despite its balancing issues and weak graphics.


Battlezone

Atari 1983
Genre: Action
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 2600

In the not-so-distant future (1999 to be exact), the nations of the world have at last recognized the need for peace to avoid mutual destruction and ensure the survival of the human race. The plan to achieve world piece is strongly reminiscient of the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still: Automated weapons are unleashed, supposedly to exterminate anyone becoming an aggressor. Of course, technology goes awry, and the weapons are starting to exterminate all life on earth. The player jumps into a rusty old tank trying to blow up all the other thanks, fighters and flying saucers which now threaten humanity.
