  1. The occasionally dodgy AI, the god-awful music and the camera grumbles make Blitzkrieg 2 feel a little rough around the edges, and when you’re competing against strategy games like THQ’s seminal "Dawn of War," you can’t afford that.

    Unfortunately, while the "big-picture" ideas manage to work, the game ends up being brought down by a number of annoying little details that make individual battles less fun than they might otherwise be.

    All the problems in the game are common areas that all RTS games should focus to be at their best, but Blitzkrieg II fails to fix any of them, and therefore results in an average RTS outing.
  4. It’s an affair for the patient, meticulous player who doesn’t mind playing a puzzle game in disguise as a WWII RTS. Blitzkrieg II is too unforgiving and downright frustrating to warrant my recommendation to any but the most intense history buffs.

    A pretty good RTS that knows its limitations and succeeds within them. [Holiday 2005, p.79]
  6. While flawed, Blitzkrieg II makes a good single player wargame because it successful models the cold ruthlessness of war and the importance of using reinforcements wisely.
  7. Decent combat system, good-looking engine, mediocre scenario design.
  8. A significantly better game than the original. With better AI and unit pathfinding, and the inclusion of a more practical camera, it would be one of the better World War II RTS games around.

    I enjoyed the first Blitzkrieg and was not immediately smitten with Blitzkrieg 2. BUT, it truly grew on me. Although I did not use the camera I enjoyed the first Blitzkrieg and was not immediately smitten with Blitzkrieg 2. BUT, it truly grew on me. Although I did not use the camera features too often it was nice to be able to freeze an explosion then pan around it. Or use the camera to 'see' into the jungle better. This is probably 2x as good as the first. I really liked this game -- I'm looking forward to any expansion packs. Full Review »
