    February, 1998
    "In conclusion, I have to say that no game reviewer worth his or her salt proclaims a game a winner
    before they've seen the finished product, but I'm tempted to do so after playing the pre-release alpha
    of Battlezone." -- PC Game, February 17, 1998.

    "Although at first glance the game looks a lot like titles that have come before (Uprising to name one),
    Battlezone boasts a strategy element that is much more graceful and an action element that is superior
    in both presentation and control." -- GameSpot, February 6, 1998.

    "Even in its unfinished state, Battlezone has had several of our staff members glued to their computer
    screens for weeks." -- GameSpot, February 6, 1998.

    "Looking at the game's already fanstastically smooth play, well-balanced mission, and intriguing blend
    of action and strategy elements, it's readily apparent that unless something major changes in the
    coming month, Activison will have a hit on its hands." -- GameSpot, February 6, 1998.

    "It isn't everyday that you witness history in the making." -- Gaming Age,February 11, 1998. "�it
    could very well be the case that Activision has defined an entirely new genre in video gaming �
    perhaps one that will catch on as quick as the RTS
    genre did." -- Gaming Age, February 11, 1998.

    "�the Battlezone team has a taken a complex engine and molded it into a superb experience�" --
    Gaming Age, February 11, 1998.

    "This is not a game where you say, 'Oh, I've played a game like that and I didn't like it' because you
    have NOT played ANYTHING like Battlezone before." -- Gaming Age, February 11, 1998.

    "�it's safe to say that Battlezone will be 'Action/Strategy Game of the Year'for 1998�" -- Gaming
    Age, February 11, 1998.
