  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] The sequel to the award-winning Xbox Live action extravaganza, Assault Heroes 2 continues to ramp up the excitement. Your original enemy was just a pawn of a more sinister alien force, and now you must fight on both land and in space to overcome this new threat. Fight alone or work with a friend in the enhanced two-player cooperative mode. Employ bigger and stronger weapons and enjoy a more intense on-foot combat experience. Battle through the extensive and intense levels in your trusty 4x4, or hijack enemy vehicles for even greater firepower. Take on even more relentless enemies and face-off with the most outrageous bosses you have ever seen on your way to the climactic battles in outer space. [Microsoft] Collapse

    The harder boss fights, longer levels, destructible environments, and the on-foot levels add to the already amazingly fun to play and, in my opinion, one of the best XBLA games making it a must buy if you were a fan of the original and have some points to spare.

    It changes and improves elements from the original while still holding onto what everyone loved about the first game.

    Assault Heroes 2 is a down-and-dirty hoot.
  4. When it's all said and done Assault Heroes 2 has a lot to offer for it's price, and does so in a very slick package.
  5. If you are a fan of the genre or are just looking for an excellent arcade experience, you honestly can't go wrong with AH2.
  6. If you're a fan of the original Assault Heroes game and you've been itching for more, Assault Heroes 2 is perfect for you. For everyone else, though, it's a tough call. The game adds a few new extras here and there, but it seems a little weak as far as sequels go.
  7. This pedestrian offering is a little too sterile, a little too similar, a little too short yet somehow a little too long. [Aug 2008, p.99]
