Reviews

“Doing things on a shoestring, going back to basics, taking on a challenge with spunk, skill and a dash of new tech—that's the traditional telling of the British war effort.”
PC Gamer

“Developers who say all the right things; World War 2 shooters were great and it would be awesome if they came back.”
Eurogamer

“Bulkhead Interactive have gotten the feel of Battalion absolutely spot on. Everything from the game’s movement to the gun play brings you right back to the good old days of playing shooters online. The fast-paced action of Battalion is something I’ve missed for a long time.”
