Battalion Wars





Battalion Wars 


For most of the development cycle this game was supposed to be a real time version of Advance Wars. In the eleventh hour Nintendo changed the name to Battalion Wars. Even the most rigorous investigative reporting by the WMG has not been able to unearth a good reason as to why that decision was made. The opinion of this reviewer is because this Gamecube video game is not up to the quality of the Advance War hand held series. In this game the player is a commander who gets to command troops to go and annihilate the opposing army. Infantry, bazooka, flamethrowers, recon, tanks, etc. are used. All of the action happens in real time (editor: no waiting to take a turn).

The 3D models are decent for the Gamecube from that era. There are plenty of colors used, but not all are bright and colorful. Not one of the army personnel are approachable. Tons of violent images are found while playing this Nintendo created video game. Dead bodies do eventually vanish.

The WMG is surprised that yet again the ESRB dropped the ball and missed certain name calling language issues that Battalion Wars contains. The music is okay, but not at the normal Nintendo known quality in this reviewers ever so humble opinion.

The game includes new units in order to successfully complete certain missions. There is little reason to go back and replay any level, or the entire game. The extreme amount of violence really deters from replaying it anyways. Save your money for a family friendly video game.

The WMG ran into some control issues with Battalion Wars on the Gamecube. Swapping between different units, characters, and how to control specific vehicles can be difficult. Other times the WMG felt like a degree was needed just to figure out how to do certain things. Battalion Wars was quite a chore for the WMG to play, and not fun at all. Wanton murder does not fit under the umbrella of fun for this reviewer.

Battalion Wars is one of those games that can not be played with children around, and was embarrassing to be playing. Video games that glorify violence only add the fuel to the fire of those who consistently attack the video game industry for generating school shooters. The industry should mature enough to realize we need to avoid such games to improve our image.
