    Battalion Wars will always be a true classic in the tactical shooter genre.

    If there's one genre I suck really bad at, it's shooting games. So when I picked this game up, I was thinking: "This is going to be humiliating and boring as hell." I was wrong. The best shooting game for the GameCube... Read Full Review

    War is just adorable!

    Battalion Wars is a great mix of action and real-time strategy. You control a "do-gooder" style army throughout the game, seemingly modeled after the U.S. At first, your enemy is a Soviet like nation in which you are e... Read Full Review
