    Good old-fashioned strategic action. [Mar 2008, p.68]
  2. With some pretty innovative and solid graphics, great sound and the inclusion of online support, this game is pretty much a must buy, especially for strategy fans looking for their fix on the Wii.

    Everything gels when I approach Battalion Wars 2 the way it’s meant to be played--slowly and methodically, like a real-time strategy game.

    The simplicity of all its elements is kind of a trademark for this Battalion Wars. But that can also be held against the game, because it could use a little more depth. But if you think of it for what it is and not for what it could have been you can enjoy it properly. [Jan 2008]

    The series' transition to the Wii has produced mixed results. [Dec 2007, p.82]
  6. Allowing the Wii remote to more closely simulate a computer mouse would have increased the game's fun factor even more, but after spending enough time on the game's campaign, gamers are encouraged to delve into multiplayer, where the price tag pays for itself over and over again.

    BW2 is a strategy game that doesn't demand much strategy. That doesn't mean it's not sometimes enjoyable, but it's nothing more than an occasional diversion. [Jan 2008, p.84]

Very challenging campaign with an amazing multiplayer. One of the very few games that offered asymmetrical gameplay in the MP mode "Assault". One player takes on the role of the defender (including structures) while the other one has to attack and conquer within a time limit. So one player is essentially takes on the role of the CPU in the campaign, but with maps specifically made for this mode. 1vs1 online. Expand

The visuals are nice, missions are the right length, and there have been a couple of enhancements in the form of extra units and an online multiplayer mode. However, the distinct lack of offline multiplayer is a significant downside, and disjointed gameplay mechanics makes its description as a 'tactical' action game fit like a pair of clown pants on a size zero model.

    If you played and enjoyed the first game, you’ll undoubtedly like BWii. If you’ve never played the series before, try before you buy – this one’s not for everyone.

The Wii's motion controls feel nice and at home in this game, something that I feel is missed in a lot of other games in the genre on the Wii. I find the campaign to be short and not all that difficult, but the game made up for this in its online mode, which has unfortunately been taken down. Despite this, I would still recommend playing the game if you have not before, as even without online the game is still solid and enjoyable, with easy to enjoy mechanics, and graphics that still hold up today, as well as a nice soundtrack.

It's one of those siituations where you think this game could be really cool. But a terrible camera combined with the sense that you're playing a tutorial for the whole game makes this one of the worst games ever. Don't waste your time with this one. Expand
