    It's a fine game. While some of the improvements made over the first game were really great in my opinion, others weren't, and the story - while still being ok for most of it - wasn't nearly as good as the first game's. What's really bad about this game is the atrociously poor AI which is WAY too easy to defeat and the clumsy interface.

  1. It's bland food that is only slightly improved by the huge portions.
  2. A phenomenal game.
  3. The sheer variety of units and maps alone make for a wide variety of strategic approaches - unlike some games you can not rely on the same basic strategy while mowing your way through the scenarios.
