Battlezone [PC Game]
Developed by: Activision - Activision (1998) - Action Strategy - Rated: Everyone
In Battlezone, you take the role of a tank commander leading U.S. or Soviet forces to gain control of precious metal. The "Stars
and Stripes" units under your control include NSDF scouts, three types of armored assault tanks, self-propelled turrets, heavy
strike cruisers, APCs, howitzers, bombers, minelayers, reclamation and cargo units, bio-metal fabricators, construction
facilities, and more. The "Red Brigade" forces feature similar units with differing properties and unique abilities.
In 1952, a meteor shower struck the Bering Strait. The celestial event was overshadowed by the conflict raging in Korea, yet
United States and Russian scientists surreptitiously recovered and studied odd metals resulting from the impact. After testing by
the National Space Defense Force (NSDF), a super-secret organization empowered by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the
so-called "bio-metal" was found to be a product of alien sentient manufacture.
Because the "bio-metal" was determined to be the result of a cataclysmic explosion of an alien structure some 100 trillion
kilometers distant, it was deduced that fragments had been captured by the gravitational pull of every sizable planet in the solar
system. Accessible bodies such as Mars}, Venus and Jupiter's satellites Io and Europa, as well as Saturn's satellite Titan and the
earth's Moon, became instant targets for mining the material in a race to win the Cold War between the Soviets and Americans.
In a secret deal, Arkin Industries was given the task of discovering exactly how the "memory-resilient" Bio-Metal 11 could be used
for military weaponry systems. New and never before seen indestructible all-terrain vehicles and futuristic weapons could be
manufactured easily if more of the material were available. Thus the race to retrieve usable quantities of the material was born.
Weaponry includes mortars, cannons, missiles, solar flares, mines, dampening field generators, snares and cameras; building
types consist of power plants, silos, towers, barracks, depots and hangars. Four training missions are available to learn gameplay
and 3D acceleration is offered but not mandatory. Game customization features include three skill levels (easy, medium and
hard), automatic leveling, target positioning assistance and detail, object, shadow and cockpit settings, as well as multiplayer
options (LAN, Internet, modem) with a wide choice of game options.
