As a child, I was somewhat of a board game addict. To exemplify just how uncool I was, my brother and I used to hold a game Olympics in which we'd crown a champion of every individual game we owned. Battleship, of course, has been a staple in households since it debuted as a Milton Bradley board game in 1967. It has certainly withstood the test of time, but like every creation has faced several updates or new incarnations through the years. Of course, synergistic marketing being what it is--you couldn't expect a Battleship film not to be accompanied by a Battleship movie tie-in game. Personally, I'd prefer if studios had more imagination than to co-opt something as silly as a game (with no plot) to be their next potential blockbuster. But my cynicism about opportunism aside, this is a review of the Deluxe Battleship game.

Game Design: In terms of appearance and design, this is actually a pretty nice set-up. It does require a bit of assembly and there are stickers to affix, but once you've gotten established--it's a slick and dynamic looking game. The primary playing surface is a sturdy plastic unit that unfolds and stands in a pyramid-like formation. As in the original, the bottom screen allows you to view your battleships while the top allows you to track where you've attacked your opponent. In between is a programming console with the buttons utilized in game play.

Game Play: As this is a movie tie-in, it necessarily follows the themes of the movie. Hence, one side plays the Navy and one side plays alien forces. This concept adds nothing to the actual game. Instead of placing your own ships, there are options to choose a pre-existing configuration from the manual and program it into the unit.

Weve had this game less than 6 hours & are ready to box it up and return it.
For starters, it won't stay upright. It collapses flat on any sort of pressure. I have a 5 & 8 yr old, who probably press the pegs extra firm - but it's marketed as a kid game, so that should have been considered anyway.
Secondly, programming & play time take up a lot of extra time compared to original version, so we stopped in the middle of a game for supper - and the thing timed out & shut itself off. There's no way to retrieve your game once it times out. We had to start over. Meaning we had to commit to another hour+ to reprogram & play again.
Thirdly, the alien ships are shaped wider than the grid marks, so you can't place 2 of them next to each other on the board. Nor can you place white "miss" pegs around the alien ships when the opponent calls a missed shot. This is a minor complaint, but worth mentioning if you're planning on spending $40-$50 for this game.

Gotta love the old game battleship but this product is too confusing to be fun. It was harder than expected to set up but of course I was comparing it to the old battleship game. Once put together the process to play the game was quite confusing as you have to go through a series of questions for 2 players (and 1) to get all the ships on the board. One good thing about the product is the ability to play as a single player so once you get the hang of setting up the game to play it is not bad but not the best.

I am a child of the 1970s, where board games were popular family entertainment. The classic "Battleship" game was popular with the kids for a couple of reasons. First, we had the classic "You sank my battleship!" commercials on Saturday morning cartoons, and we all thought it was absolutely hysterical to invoke that phrase in mock-horror (how our parents put up with us I'll never know). The other big thing with "Battleship" was that you could play it anytime, anywhere - even in the car on long road trips as long as you took care not to dump the game pieces everywhere.

When you're 7 and riding in the back seat across Montana, any distraction is welcome.

The "Deluxe Movie Battleship" is a decidedly high-tech updating of the classic game. In several respects, the new game suffers from the enhanced technology - it takes much longer to set up, attacking your opponent is more cumbersome than the old "'B-3' - 'Miss.' - 'C-1' - 'Hit'" exchanges, etc. - but the game has some very positive aspects. My favorite is that you can play a solo game, something that was absolutely impossible with the classic game. You also cannot deny that the game now has a look and feel that makes you feel a lot more like you're in command of something - in the classic game all you had was your grid with your own ships and a grid where you tracked your hits and misses. While the classic game had a certain low-tech charm, I've noticed that kids like the more ornate look of this game.

My version of the game required some minor assembly - mainly stickers - that wasn't too challenging when compared to other kids' games. I do feel like this one sucks the life out of batteries pretty quickly, though.

All in all, a recommended game but, if you're of a certain age like me, you might just prefer to track down a version of the classic game (and try to explain to your incredulous kids why it was so much fun).

Length: 2:17 Mins
This clever update to the tactical combat game thrilled my sons (ages 9 and 8). The Deluxe Battleship Movie edition's jaw-dropping features include:

* Weapon sound effects
* Voice commands - "The battle for Earth has begun!" and "Alien target neutralized!"
* Single-player mode - A huge improvement on the classic game! The computer opponent offers three skill levels of competition.
* Pre-set ship arrangements - Speeds up game play.
* Three game options - Classic, multi-attack and salvo
* Compact design - the hinged suitcase design makes the game much easier to store and carry along for a weekend trip. (This occupies our sons' time while we unpack at the hotel.)

We are probably one of the few families who own three versions of Battleship. We have a vintage 1970s set I purchased from eBay, a contemporary update released by Milton Bradley and since discontinued and the Deluxe Battleship Movie edition, which is now our favorite of the three.

The other electronic reincarnations, such as Monopoly, fail because the upgrades subtract iconic elements (e.g. paper money). Aside from a slightly smaller grid, my sons didn't notice anything missing in the Deluxe Battleship Movie edition.

My video clip shows my sons playing their first game, immediately after assembling the pieces from the box. You can see they are a little tentative but the game play is intuitive. Over the first weekend, they played at least a dozen matches together as well as another 4-5 games in the single-player mode.
