Battlezone
« on: 09 January 2013, 03:36: PM »
From 1998 - A blast from the past - this was a re-make of the crappy vector based 80s arcade game.

This is a hybrid RTS/Vehicle-based shooter, and I remember have hours of fun.

Anyway - there is now a free version available that works on new versions of windows, and supports high resolutions (but don't expect amazing textures and the like)

You can download the game for FREE!, and the 'Red Odyssey' expansion pack from http://www.battlezone1.com

There are also multiplayer servers available for download and extra maps - with more info on the related forum.

It's only 250MB for the game and the expansion pack - I have downloaded and installed (took 5 minutes in total :D) and it works on Windows 8 at 1920x1080 with no problems.

Major necro time.

This game has been re-vamped and released on Steam for £12. It is a really good game, mixing FPS vehicle action with strategy.
It has two pretty good single player campaigns, and multiplayer.

Additional - still buggy as hell at the moment....

Not sure who'd be interested, but....

Battlezone II - Combat Commander now remastered and on Steam, and reasonably priced (£13.49)
