Powerful dinosaur invaders have appeared from nowhere. They
have overwhelmed the only human soldiers nearby - a security
squad on a desert oil rid. Captain Ike Bain has fought a heroic
defence, but taken terrible casualties. Tex Lang, the new
sergeant, and his reinforcements have made good his losses
but Ike must use every ounce of his legendary cunning to hold
off the powerful dinosaur invaders. The drillers must stall
their enemies to allow the evacuation of homesteads and villages
beyond the last line of hills known as Wolf Ridge...
The Battle for Wolf Ridge
is not only a really fun game, it's also a great looking one.
The games developers have put a lot of work into ensuring
that both the game board and figures are as attractive as
mission is to manoeuvre your soldiers and guns to defeat your
opponent. Take them out with direct fire or use clever tactics
to capture them. The battle rages across rugged 3D hills using
a network of tracks that criss-cross the battlefield.
instructions are easy enough to follow and there are are three
levels of play (to ensure that you don't get bored of this
after the first few times you play it). You take control of
1 x large gun, 1 x medium gun and 6 x dino/human soldiers
as you try to outwit your opponent. When they are within range,
you can blast them with one of your guns. But be careful not
to put your weapon in the line of site of your enemies guns.
only slight complaint I had (and this is more a marketing
point) was that the box illustration was a little odd. It
doesn't exactly convey what's inside. It actually reminded
my more like an illustration from an '80s board game. Also
there are pictures on the back of the box that depict the
figures that you use in the game. The picture is accompanied
by a caption that reads: "Figures Included (Life Size)"
I had images of opening the box to discover that six-foot-tall
figures leapt out at me. I think it might have been better
if it had read: "Figures Included (Actual Size)".
these are small niggles (that aren't really important) when
you consider what a great board game this is.
added bonus is that not only is this a fantastic stand-alone
game in it's own right, but if you already own the original
Impact game, you can use this as an add on to provide
a huge 10-board battlefield.
even a game where mum and dad can team up against the kids
(each playing as either the dinosaurs or humans) to ensure
that all the family have fun. Just don't be surprised when
the kids start taunting the adults by shout: "You're
dead, you old dinosaurs."
an age where more money is being spent on producing console
game, it's great to see that there is at least one toy company
that is still investing heavily to bring us quality board
