Game Overview

Battalion Wars 2 is a take-off from the original Battalion Wars and is a great game for the young and old. It uses the Wii controls to there fullest and helps to teach strategy. The setting is very much the same as other combat games, one force against another. The twist on this one is that the planes, tanks and other equipment are cartoonishly exaggerated and the characters are children in combat gear. What is also new about this game is the introduction of battle ships, frigates and submarines that you can control. Wow. After the introduction play you will be given orders to find several allies nearby and to breach a large gate. As the game progresses you will be given control of the boys under your command and control of the tanks and aircraft made available to you. This is were the fun begins.

You can order all of those under your command, or certain groups of your boys, to attack a given target or to hold a chosen location. This applies to the tanks, ships and aircraft as well. As the enemy is defeated they will leave behind medical bags to replenish your health and in the case of enemy equipment they will leave behind fuel cans to repair any damage taken by your equipment. Certain tasks must be completed before moving on and in some instances within a time limit. The environment changes from mission to mission and can be in the mountains, the desert or on the sea.

Just started playing this - really,
really surprised at how much I'm
enjoying it. It reminds me very much of
'Hogs of War', which is a good thing

It has a few flaws - the motion
controls aren't quite there, the camera
angles can get a bit dodgy, but as a
basic idea for a game it's an
incredibly good one. I hope Nintendo
contract Kuju to make a BW3 for Wii-U.

Yea the voice acting was pretty bad in
this game. You can turn it off. Other
than that I have no complaints about
this game perhaps it is a little short.
The only vehicles that I had a little
difficutly controling were the planes
but they weren't terrible. All other
vehicles are easy to control.

I've bought this game last month and it
is great indeed. A shame that no one
looks into it, the only thing where it
mess up is the voice acting (the
japanese missions are played with the
commander voices on mute, holy crap, how
AWFUL). Even then, the game plays
perfectly is artiscally very beautiful
and have a nice replay value. =]

Well others can always go on Amazon and
buy it! Looks Awesome! You say it had
online!!! I doubt anyone still plays so
I will not be buying it. Im happy with
the first on gamecube

Probably not well, it had
no multiplayer and the controls were
difficult before the wii-mote.

loved this game and still occasionally
pop on to try and get S rank on a
mission or play online. I really hope
we get a 3rd one where they can make
even more improvements.

For one maybe
make units gain extra Atk/Def when they
land a kill, like ranking units in the
Advance wars series as well as giving a
CO area boost to nearby units.

Offline co-op, more missions, better
online matchmaking setup, wii-speak
functionality, leaderboards and such
would all be great.
