Heads up! If you don't jump on the controls of your super duper Anti-Matter Particle Beam pretty darn quick, the supreme MagnoStryker, your arch enemy, is going to blast you and your entire Battle Squadron right into oblivion! Sound intense? Absolutely! Modeled after the popular Amiga game of the same title, the Genesis version of Battle Squadron (for one or two players) has loads of hot options, including a play-mode setting which ranges from beginner to expert.
Arcade-style action and graphics coupled with an overhead view with vertical and horizontal scrolling enhance the look and feel of high speed flight. Attack Barraxian gunships and retrieve their arsenals, and you'll be well-covered when you head into battle on the planet Terrania -- the cosmic wasteland where your fellow flight commanders are trapped.
Electronic Arts first Genesis shooter is a vertical scrolling game set in an overhead perspective. Play simultaneously with a friend as you take out the enemy who has set up strongholds and deployed tremendously huge forces on the ground and in the air. To make it even harder, some of the forces are using a cloaking device which makes it nearly invisible for you to detect them, until it's too late.
Another colorful shoot-out, Battle Squadron just didn't deliver any new thrills that haven't been seen before on the Genesis. The game is a solid piece of blast-em-apart action, but after awhile you begin to wonder if you haven't already stared down the barrel of this cannon.
Great multi-level scrolling backgrounds or 2 player action? It's a tough choice EA had to make but I would rather have the great backgrounds. The game looks flat like something that was done on the 8 bit. When stacked up against the competition this is only average.
Battle Squadron just isn t what a Genesis shooter should be. While the graphics and sound are OK the game lacks in intensity. Power-ups are neat, but nothing special. I like the cloaked enemies. They remind me of the Predator. Other than that, a pretty average shooter.
Battle Squadron isn t the kind of shooter that you would expect from Genesis. The game play is slow, and there is not much action. The power ups aren't great, but never the less they do help you out. The two player mode can be fun, if you like to get you power ups stolen. Not too great!
This unsuccessful shooter is the product of Electronic Arts. The space plotline and nice graphics make up for its drawbacks. In fact, this is a very mad flying shooter.
Your ship is moving forward shooting at enemies with every stuff available and trying to survive among the hordes of enemies and tons of their fatal charges. The weapon of your gallant ship can be improved in the course of the flight, there are also super-power charges. This game is for 1-2 players.
