Be glad, fellow Earthlings, that I have not been chosen by the high command to defend the Earth from alien bad guys. I tried, really, but I just got my ass handed to me on a silver plate with a fancy handwritten note saying how much of a pleasure it was to have kicked it.
Also, I think I’ve found a really fun, fast-paced mini-based space combat game. It’s rare that I get stomped all over and actually enjoy the process.
Battleship Galaxies by Wizards of The Coast/Hasbro is a relatively simple, mini-based space combat game. It won’t scratch your itch if you’re into painting minis and wargaming on a large scale, but if you enjoy games like BattleTech, Car Wars, and other combat simulations you will enjoy this. One thing is sure: this ain’t your father’s Battleship. There are a few points that hearken back to the original “You sank my battleship!” game and we’ll touch on them. But first: eye candy. Click the individual images to make them overwhelmingly large.
Feast your eyes on that beauty. It’s one of the medium-sized ships in the human fleet. It’s just one of the ways in which Battleship Galaxies stands out.
