Sink These Battleship: The Video Game Screenshots (and Trailer)

Combining strategy and first-person shooter action, Battleship: The Video Game takes the upcoming movie based on the classic board game as its inspiration, but like the movie, features a few invading aliens thrown in for good measure. Perhaps Hollywood thought a movie where someone barked out grid co-ordinates for 90 minutes might not be a winner.

Playing as US Navy elite specialist, Cole Mathis, you'll have to take the battle to the invaders at sea, in the air and on land, commanding a naval fleet to keep your attackers at bay. You'll use realistic naval units, firing off rounds from your battleships' cannons, sinking those pesky aliens.

Battleship: The Video Game will be setting grid coordinates for a European launch on April 20th, with a US release to follow on May 15th. There's 11 new screenshots to check out in the gallery and a teaser trailer to watch below.

And FPS based on a film of a board game?

I suspect Battle Los Angeles may be a better game.

I will withhold judgement on the movie because it might actually be decent. This game does look nice and doesn't look like a copy/paste of the traditional game. Probably would of been better as a Arcade title as well. We'll see

I don't really understand how the creators of the movie were inspired by the board game to create a science fiction alien invasion plot. Why not just a movie about "regular" naval battles? I mean, honestly, I would watch that--my father was in the navy for nine years.

I would much rather play a game with naval battles that are actually believable. Either battles from Revolutionary times or WWII battles, hell, I would even like to see some modern battles.

This game is trash.

Wait, doesn't EA technically have the rights to the Battleship games? Last time I checked they are doing all the Hasbro Game Night games and that included Battleship.

@7 - I guess you didn't see "Harold & Kumar go to White Castle!" You either get really turned-off by those girls, or turned-on - if you're turned on by scat (ewww)! :-p
