I want to recommend this game. I really, really do. It's a refreshing style of turn-based strategy that makes you rely quite heavily on your wits and intuition. It's the sort of game where the winner is not decided by the size of their ship and its guns, but by the savvy of the player. It has a timeless style and an endearing sense of humor that tends to leave one in a good mood, even as their ships sink to the briny deep.

I want to recommend this game, but I can't. The single player campaign could be beaten in a matter of hours, even at a leasurely pace, and leaves much to be desired. It was obviously designed to recieve regular attention from the developers, who seem to have forgotten it. However, the thing that really sinks this game (pun intended) is the lack of a multiplayer community. This game was made with the intention that players would faithfully and regularly play with and against each other, and although it started out that way, it never coelesced. Unless you have friends that you know also want to play this game, it's simply not worth it.

It had a lot of promise at launch but was very quickly abandoned by its devs and has long since been a dead game.

(Posting my unfinished draft review to warn people during the sale!) Tutorial sucks, campaign sucks, interface is awkward and forces you to do WAY too much clicking to see basic info (use mouseover, Sideshow Bob!). On sale for three bucks, it might still be worth the money if the the idea of customizable futuristic turn-based battleships appeals to you, but if you have any kind of backlog it won't be worth your TIME.

+ Short but fun co-op story campaign
+ A varied selection of weapons offering a lot of tactical options
+ Railguns let you construct your own Battleship Yamato
+ Multiplayer is tense, fun, and usually less than one hour per match
+ Jazz Boatman's Jazz Boatmode can be enabled in multiplayer (no extra charge)
+ DLC is pretty reasonably priced
+ All weapons available in core game, none of the weapons are DLC
- Many of the boats are DLC
- Few / no online lobby players, you'll need to get your friends to boat with you
- Pieces is bogged down making Magicka Games, which means no more Leviathan in the foreseeable future.

This game is a tragedy in that it's a GREAT idea and fun to play, but there's nothing TO play. Its single player is over quickly and MP community has been dead since launch
