  1. Delivers more onscreen pyrotechnics than a Kiss concert.
  2. A much better game than the original. The single player, while still weak compared to multiplayer, is longer and more engrossing.
  3. 90
    Not only is the pacing much more deliberate -- and therefore very intense -- but the awesome selection of different mecha and other war machines give this game a feel all its own.
  4. 80
    While there's occasional pop-up and clipping, those glitches are trumped by smooth animation and incredible explosions. When an enemy Mech is trashed, the bright blast lights up the screen and ripples the surrounding terrain in the most satisfyingly way.
  5. The beautiful graphics and destructible environments (both upgraded from the last game) add to the ambience, but the single-player game disappoints with brevity (6-7 hours to beat) and a throw-away story that never sets the mood properly with its weak dialogue and characters. [Feb 2005, p.109]
  6. A game that probably could have used a bit more focus and polish but despite that still does its job well. The single-player campaign is somewhat interesting and gripping, and players looking for the ferocity of multiplayer won't be disappointed.
  7. There are flashes, bangs, and crashes, but after more than an hour of playing it, the only thing you're really want is to lie down about a few rounds of Majong...If called upon to describe MA2 in a single word, that word would be relentless. This game is furious, sure, but it definitely isn't fast.

    Hands down THE best game in the entire battletech series. its only major flaw is the lack of weapon customization for mechs, and the singleHands down THE best game in the entire battletech series. its only major flaw is the lack of weapon customization for mechs, and the single player is a little lacking. but, Xbox Live, sweet graphics, big explosions, and a furious pace more than compensate for that.

    Not as fun as the original. they introduce walking on foot as well as driving tanks and battle armor. The game just doesn't seem meant for that.......
