Battle Isle 2

bi2_01.png
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

Innerprise 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
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.


Bazooka Sue

Starbyte 1997
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
If you look up the idiom skeleton in the closet, there should be a big picture of Bazooka Sue for illustration. First announced in the early 1990s, the "almost finished" game was shelved when Starbyte went under. The development team left for Blue Byte where they made similar game. Two years later, someone at the "revived" Starbyte decided to open the closet. Only they neglected to dust off what they found in there.

Beach Volley

Ocean 1989
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Yay, it's summer! Dig out your bathing shorts / suit, jump in the car and head for the beach. And hope you are one of these good-looking sport-types to avoid being laughed about. Or alternatively, hope there are even fatter people than you to keep the attention away from the result of your beer sessions. Hiring some people with visible mutations could also help...


Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity

Viacom New Media 1995

Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Background

[Anchantia] Beavis and Butt-Head was a series which aired on MTV for the first time in 1990. It was invented by Mike Judge who later also became known for the series "Kind of the Hill". Beavis & Butt-Head quickly became a cult hit due to its brute-ish humour, its simple animation style and the open criticism of our society.


Beet the Devil

Carolyn VanEseltine 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Interpreter

Demons have laid waste on your garden, probably killed your neighbour and, worst of all, kidnapped your dog! What else is there left to do, but to go down to hell (armed with various vegetables and accompanied by a helpful puppy) and to retrieve it?
