BATTLEZONE 98 REDUX $4.99 @ Humble Bundle

+4 Deal Score

This game is a blast from the past, they remade it with HD textures. If you never heard of this game, you probably have not been a gamer long. This game was the first game ever best to my knowledge to ever incorporate FPS and RTS into one amazing package. You take the role of a soldier and you literally build your base and can jump into any vehicle in the game or fight on foot if you want throughout the whole campaign.

This is a solid classic so I am sure its on a few peoples lists. All the classics are getting HD remakes, age of empires and the original starcraft are two others. This game was way ahead of its time, pushed the envelope in term of graphics and game play. It also supports the steam workshop so can probably add a lot more content into it.

If you have a VR headset the battlezone for VR is the best version hands down. This version still looks a little n64 even with the graphics improvements.

Terrific game concept. Probably a narrow range of folks who can appreciate it though, thus there has not been an attempt to do a modern AAA version. I would pre-order such a thing, in a heartbeat.

I think it was the battlecrusier series that tried to do something similar and it failed miserably. Now if you dont mind no multiplayer and it all primarily being in space, X series from egosoft like X3 are kind of striving for this type of thing. I honestly cant think of a huge AAA title that has tried to do this recently, I know there was one, but I dont think it did well either, so I guess battlezone is one of the few to get it right.

Hmm, nostalgia is making me contemplate buying this but reality is reminding me I sucked at this game 20 years ago.
