Does anyone have any concrete information on this game? I would love a remake/update of the PC and N64 game, especially with some updated graphics and online play.
Atari doesn't own the full rights to Battlezone and Battlezone II for the PC; they were developed by another team entirely. They are both brilliant games, so you should buy them and play them until the CD wears out.
Chances are it's just a re-release of the original arcade game, or a terrible action-y remake with rap music and ghetto stylings.
Ah, right: those Windows games were *Activision* games. Good point.
I'm still curious to see what these games are. And, until I hear otherwise, I'm still going to fantasize that they're a remake of the 1990s action/strategy games. ;^)
I wonder if it's a miscommunication of this game: http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-37-7ffe8a670bbb31dacfa4c7d29346e8e7-71-9f-49-en-70-cyv.html
Alex, I thought the same thing while I was poking around. But I was under the (potentially mistaken) impression that that game wasn't coming to the U.S. I mean, it's possible that Atari might be the NA publisher for that, but then I'd imagine that folks like IGN and GameSpot would actually have more information on it *as a NA release*. As it is...they have none. (Again, AFAICT...)
Actually, it appears that Shutokou Battle: Zone of Control is being brought to NA by Konami as Street Supremacy.
I wish I could play it until it wears out ( have both bz1 and bz2 ).recently had win xp pro installed but it wont work on it. i'm still trying to find a patch for it to make it compatible
you'll find exactly what you're looking for.
I have Battlezone for the PSP in my hot little hand. It's not like BZ1 and BZ2 from Activision (and Pandemic); it's a deathmatch game. As a matter of fact, it is almost identical to an old Atari Games arcade game called T-Mek... as memory serves. You are in an arena with N other tanks, you run through flying light things to get more energy, you have a normal weapon and a better weapon.
Ah! Found its official site:
And here's a better URL for T-Mek, as your comment system clipped the previous one:
