Battle Beach II Videos (Robots)

This page contains all the recorded fights from Battle Beach II, except for the insect weight classes.

All the quicktimes use the 3ivx codec (which does a really superb job of keeping the file sizes down). 3ivx is a MPEG-4 codec, and the files should play fine if you've got the most recent Quicktime or Video for Windows.

These videos are © 2003 AnimEigo / Battle Beach, LLC. If you are a builder, you may make copies of the fights and interviews featuring your robot, for your personal use and for use on your team websites. All other use or redistribution is forbidden without written permission of Battle Beach and AnimEigo.

The rating (from 1-10) is my personal subjective rating of how interesting the fight would be to a general audience. Your mileage may vary. My apologies for any overly sarcastic comments, they are all the result of editing into the wee hours of the morning.
