Excellent game but unsatisfying gameplay experience
I really like the graphics and UI but ultimatiely the gameplay experience failed to satisfy me because I don't really find gameplay to be as satisfying as other similar games due to lack of in-game visual excitement. When I hit a ship, I'd want to feel good about it and a simple red box doesn't do it for me. Same goes for sinking any ships. I would love to see a mini explosion, animated sinking ship, top-down view of all ships (instead of current side view.) Despite above, I still highly recommend this Battleship-type game to everyone. I think the price is right especially since BattleAtSea comes with multiplayer LAN support and soon to offer online support in future free update.
Decent game but one major flaw
Biggest flaw in the game is the AI is a dumb as a rock. Let's say the computer opponent has sunk 4 of your 5 ships. And let's say the last ship you've got is your largest one, which takes up 5 squares. Well, the computer will spend the rest of its turns firing blindly looking for your final ship. But instead of narrowing the field down to spaces that can hide a size 5 ship, it spaces its attacks immediately next to previous attacks. OK, SOMETIMES it allows 1 space between attacks. But frequently it just chooses a space adjacent to previous attacks, which means unless it's already looking in the right area, you'll have as long as you need to hunt down the rest of their ships. If this AI were greatly improved, I'd give the game 4 stars for an otherwise clever implementation of a classic board game.
