That's about how random Battleship is. I've never been a big fan of this game for the simple reason that I don't think there is any strategy involved.
The randomness is totally frustrating. What tends to happen is you just keep taking a wild guess as to where the other player has a ship. If you hit one, now you have another random guess (which way is it facing). Then another random guess (how long is it).
I guess there is supposedly some strategy in how you place your ships, but I don't see it and even if there is, it's minimal strategy at best. The only redeeming quality of Battleship is that all ages can play. But there are many other games that young children can play that are a lot more enjoyable and educational.
Unless you are nostalgic for the old days, I would recommend you avoid Battleship. This is not a great game, and lacks any strategy at all. Battleship deserves a rating of 1 for sure.
