About This Game

Take command of an army of sleek heavy assault tanks, strike cruisers, APCs and more, and wreak havoc with super-heated projectiles in your mission to blast your enemy from the face of the Moon, Mars, Venus, Titan, Io and Europa.

Battlezone 98 Redux Odyssey Edition includes both the main game and its expansion Red Odyssey for a decent price. Battlezone 98 Redux is an updated version of the original game with improved textures, lighting, HUD, etc for modern PCs. The gameplay combines vehicle combat and a strategy game where you build and manage units while having the ability to switch between what vehicle you control to take the fight to the enemy yourself. You will build units and structures, repair, and command units with different hotkeys, it all works well. Other than the visuals of the game being on the dated side, the story is about a war between the US and Soviets that has gone into space to fight over resources, with the usual cheesy dialogue that comes with such a conflict from a 90s game. It's the same fun gameplay that you will remember if you played it in the past with improved visuals, and is worth playing if it sounds interesting to you. Redux The Red Odyssey is an updated version of Battlezone 98's expansion of the same name. The Red Odyssey adds an additional 23 missions, making it shorter than the base game, and adds two additional factions in the form of the Chinese Red Army and The NSDF Black Dogs. The remake has the same good quality of the main game with the improved UI and textures and it runs well, though they are missing some music tracks. The missions included in Red Odyssey will offer a high challenge to all but the best Battlezone players. If you enjoyed the base game and don't mind a difficulty increase this will be a good purchase for you.
