Battalion Wars 2 (Wii) > Opinions (49)

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 :D

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. =]

@NeoStar9

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

I 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.

The Japan sales for BW2 look similar to the ones for BW1. So wouldn't be surprised if the sales of both games were very similar.

Curious as to what the true sales numbers for this was. Especially since the Others numbers are blank. Anyone know how BW1 on the GameCube did?

Got it for 34.99 @ K-Mart. They were having a store closing sale and every game they had was 30% off.. too bad I couldn't find any other good games I didn't have. :\

Enjoyed this game a lot. Wasn't too difficult (except a few missions were tough) but it was extremely fun. I haven't played too much online but it was fun also. I should try the co-op mode. The voice acting was pretty cheesy but I am pretty sure you can turn it off. They could have made it more difficult if the COs didn't announce what the enemy was attacking with every time. I guess if you have the voice acting off and ignore the text then you could achieve more of a surprise to what you are fighting against if you haven't played the missions in a while.

Bought this game for $20 at Amazon. I really like it, only its hard to 'battle' and stagitize at the same time. The online is lag free beilvev it or not, and it has a limited profile thing that shows your wins/loss record, so thats pretty neat.

I think this game sold between 250k and 300k. That's still bad, but it's a weird game that might not appeal to that many.

@SaviourX. I know it was a long time ago you commented, but it's already at 170k without PAL numbers.

And using a multiplier on the UK Nintendo Channel data, I can safely say it has sold at least 100k in Europe, putting it around 270k.

I think it can get to 400k eventually.

There's a misspelling on the GC predecessor to this game. The search is thrown off because BWii is "Battalion" and the original BW is "Batallion" Two T's is correct. Two L's are not.

It's a shame that the sales from others do not seem to make it on if there a bit low it would have pushed it above 100,000 at least, if they ever get added.

Just got this game for my birthday. Looks like a lot of fun, though i do agree the lack of a skirmish mode is dissapointing. This is the kind of game I perfer making my own story to.

I have a tough time forming an opinion on the game. The controls took a while for me to get used to, but by the halfway point they were pretty good.

Still, I wish this game had like a skirmish mode or custom maps a la advance wars. As is, theres not much replayability.
