I dont quite understand why this game got bad scores...

While its built on the CoD Engine the game stays unique doesnt have the same feel as a generic FPS game.

Im one to normally Stay Away from Games made from Movies but this one did well.... didnt follow the Movie Story exactly like others do.

Gameplay wise it was ok didnt really run into many issues i think my game froze once while playing it.

I played to get the platinum so was playing on hardest mode from the beginning and it wasnt too difficult there were some parts that were frustrating but over all it was fun and easy

If you've never played the board game Battleship, what have you been doing, but anyway lets move on. Battleship the movie is hitting theaters tomorrow May 18, 2012. Battleship the video game is based off of the movie and, while it's fun to play there's very little plot within the game.
Battleship places you on an Island in the middle of the ocean when all of the sudden an alien spacecraft comes crashing into the ocean. Battleship is very light on plot. There's hardly any character development and the game doesn't even explain what the alien spacecraft could be or what it has to do with anything. That is what blew away about battleship, one of the worst stories in a game in a long time.
The graphics in Battleship are descent, but nothing special, the scenery is descent and the lighting is pretty good. The character models reminded me of Crysis 2 which is a much better game.
The gameplay in battleship is the one thing they did very well. The shooting is solid and the movement is somewhat speedy. The campaign can be played 2 ways, First Person or Battle command. Battle command turns the game into more of an RPG that an FPS. This is what impressed me about Battleship as it reminded me of the board game somewhat.
Overall Battleship the video game is just another generic FPS with the option of RPG game play. There's not even standard multiplayer which would add some longevity to this game.
