Best Toys 2011Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission Everyone remembers the awesome old school version of Battleship. Call out the grid numbers and letters, and alas! “You've sunk my battleship!” Then you have bragging rights when you have sank the whole fleet. Now with newer technological advances, Hasbro has advanced the nostalgic favorite into a game called the Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission. The Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission has a set up similar to a laptop. When you sink one of your opponent's ships, it is very exciting because you have sound and commands that help you win over your opponent's strategies. The electronic voice tells you when it's your turn and also announces when you hit or miss your opponent's ships. Sirens wail and lights flash as you try to outsmart your competitor in four different games. Similar to the previous versions of Battleship, the Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission is intended for two people to play, however one person can also play by themselves. The Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission game allows you to play by yourself, with the computer as your enemy and you can challenge it on three different skill levels. The Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission folds up for quick and easy storage. The game includes the folding Battleship grid, as well as 10 plastic ships, 200 white pegs, 100 red pegs, 50 blue pegs, three blue aircraft, three red aircraft, a sheet of labels and a mission instructional guide. The Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission gives you the chance to hunt the opposition's ships and has a new series of special weapons, radar, search planes and better sound than previous electronic versions. The newly enhanced design is the only thing really different because it lets players make their moves at eye level and allows
them to play more comfortably face to face. The Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission is easy to play, is interactive, is entertaining thought provoking, and fun. The recommended age for the Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission game is ages 8 to 13, but of course, it will be fun for the older kids and adults as well. It is great for travel as it folds up nicely and allows for storage of pieces in the compartments. Unfortunately, the cons are that the Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission sounds exciting, but it really is no different than the old style versions where you still have to sink your enemy's five different ships before they sink yours. It is kind of unoriginal, but just requires batteries. Previous versions of the Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission game were discontinued and no longer for sale due to so many issues consumers had had with the game due to computer issues that would not work properly. Some cons with this current version of Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission is that there is no battery power indicator to show how much battery is left. It also has a flimsy power on switch. The Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission requires three AA batteries which are not included. However, the batteries are difficult to get in and out. Also, the product weighs over three pounds and the product dimensions for the Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission is 19 inches by 12.25 inches by 5 inches in size. Also, there is a choking hazard due to small parts and is not intended for children under three years of age. The Electronic Battleship Advanced Mission game is available for sale at Toys R Us for $45. It retails on Amazon.com for around $54. Though it is a great game, it may not be worth the higher price tag for some sound and light effects.
