It's painfully obvious that Battle: Los Angeles the game lacked even a tiny percentage of the budget awarded khổng lồ its film counterpart for production values & polish. Still, Saber Interactive attempted to lớn recreate some of the big mix pieces the movie offers, và made it into lớn a short, downloadable first-person shooter affair. If this game had been handled the traditional movie-tie-in way, as a retail-priced six- lớn seven-hour adventure, I'm not sure it would have sầu worked. I managed khổng lồ have sầu a good time with Battle: L.A., but not because it's a good game.

Considering the bare-bones plot of the movie (ZOMG! Aliens are attacking! Stop them!), it was an incredibly smart move sầu to mimic most of the storyline & keep the game about the same length. Though that means it's short by game standards, (this entire experience can be completed in a couple hours) there's no way the narrative sầu could have been stretched out any longer. Everything about Battle: Los Angeles is either average or awful, but that's part of its charm. The cut scenes, which are essentially still comic panels with word bubbles, are unintentionally humorous. Though most scenes aren't animated, when they are its so poorly implemented that I actually burst out laughing several times. The voice acting is atrocious, too, but I looked at it as another opportunity khổng lồ laugh.

Ready, aim, fire.

Sandwiched between the horrendously amateur cutscenes are standard first-person combat segments: you'll run through the streets và pedestrian bridges of L.A. & shoot down alien forces. Your arsenal is small -- an assault rifle, sniper rifle, grenades, and a rocket launcher -- but effective sầu. Shooting a gun feels solid and using iron sights makes aiming easy. There's really only one kind of enemy lớn kill in this game: an alien that looks lượt thích someone hacked up a giant ball of phlegm and attached a machine gun lớn it. These loogie monsters can take a lot of bullets khổng lồ the gut without flinching, but a headshot from a sniper rifle still does the triông chồng. The lack of enemy variety is only tolerable because you get through the game quickly. When I got bored with shooting the aliens, I turned my fire on the destructible environment, which was amusing enough. Another fun tidbit is when you take damage, the world turns grey & everything slows down, including your squadmates' voices. It's quite awesome to lớn hear people screaming in slow-motion. With such a short chiến dịch và no multiplayer, the "replayability" aspect includes forcing you khổng lồ go through the chiến dịch multiple times lớn unlock videos, pictures, & even Achievements/Trophies for completing the game on different difficulty levels. No thank you.

There are plenty of other games on the tải về circuit that offer more than Battle: L.A. does for a $10 pricetag, but it"s still not the worst investment you could make. The game lacks variety, but it also doesn"t outstay its welcome. If you want some laughs and don"t mind that the shooting experience is average at best, playing through this alien invasion is probably more entertaining than the movie và you"ll get some Achievements/Trophies out of it.
