  1. It is, in essence, the perfect example of how to make an engrossing, addictive game through the most minimalist means.
  2. Massive Assault Network 2 is a game that deserves attention.
  3. A solid title that oozes replayability.

    Unforgiving difficulty and lack of any real improvements to the series' tried and tested formula aside, Massive Assault Network 2 is an immensely enjoyable experience.
  5. If you enjoy strategy games, especially ones where you get to match your wits against people from around the world, then you can’t go wrong with Massive Assault Network 2.
  6. A welcome addition to the strategy genre, offering a few new ideas sprinkled over a solid base of classic turn-based gameplay.
  7. A well-made turn-based strategy game with some interesting twists to give a different gameplay style to a sometimes overworked genre.
  8. This is an online turn-based strategy game done right. Even though the difficulty can be pretty tough, the game succeeds as both a casual or engaging war game. It's good on all fronts.
  9. The strip down presentation and easy to use interface allows anyone to get into the game without any barriers.
  10. If you really want to have a crack at more cerebral online strategy, you should have a look at the splendid DefCon first. It may not have anywhere near the scope or variety offered in MAN2’s maps and random-ally allocation, but it’s a fair bit cheaper and, dare we say it, requires less work to enjoy.
  11. From the highly addictive gameplay, to the excellent graphics and good sound effects, MAN 2 is a well-rounded package overall. Unfortunately, this game is geared towards hardcore turn-based strategy fans, and thus may not be for everyone.

    Turn-based strategy made accessible with a casual philosophy. [Feb 2007, p.90]

    It’s great to see more turn-based strategy titles on the PC, but a game that severely lacks depth isn’t going to satisfy everyone.
  14. It’s all slick and runs flawlessly, and fans of the series will love the improvements. On the other hand, if you don’t like slow, turn-based strategy games, there’s nothing here that will change your mind.
  15. With the inclusion of a story mode and faster gameplay the MAN series could be a hit someday. Until then, there's really no justification to purchase it.

    Would be a good 8 if it was possible to finish the enemy completely... This aprupt ending without having the satisfaction to bring them down Would be a good 8 if it was possible to finish the enemy completely... This aprupt ending without having the satisfaction to bring them down to the last unit is not good. It should, at least, be an option... Full Review »
