What Is It? Much like Alleyway, Radar Mission feels a lot like somebody else's game. In this case it's Battleship, the Milton Bradley board game we all played as children. The goal is simple: Try and locate your enemy's naval ships using nothing more than an 8 x 8 grid. Each player takes turns firing into that and the winner is determined by the last man standing. The classic board game comes to life thanks to animated cinemas and a variety of challenging missions. This early generation Game Boy release can be played solo; however it's best with a buddy.

Does It Still Hold Up? Much like the board game it's based on, Radar Mission can be a lot of fun. That is, it's a simple concept that is hard to get wrong. The presentation is better than I was expecting and it's easy to sit down and play in short bursts. This game does add a few new twists, including fighter jets that take off if the round goes on too long. It may not be the flashiest game on the Virtual Console, but Radar Mission manages to hold up.

Is It Worth The Money? I'm of two minds when it comes to Radar Mission. If you love Battleship and can see yourself playing it with somebody on the go, then this is definitely worth the three dollar asking price. However, this is the type of game you could just as easily create with a paper and pencil. The single-player campaign isn't varied enough to stay interesting and the opponent AI is all over the board. It's not a bad game, but know what you're getting yourself into.
