Battalion Wars 2 for Wii
Commander Pierce and Colonel Windsor of the Anglo Islands have a bit of a problem; the Solar Empire, an empire with a long and storied history, appear to be building a super weapon- one capable of obliterating the world as we know it. This leaves them in the difficult position of having to preemptively strike against them, sparking up a series of conflicts that have heavy ties to the past. A tactical action game at heart, Battalion Wars 2 allows the player to tackle it’s various hurdles in Assault, Skirmish, or Cooperative modes (which features online connectivity), with the main meat of the game comprising of two wars with a total of six campaigns each. Each weapon or vehicle has advantages as disadvantages- for example, tanks are good at putting a dent in infantry or buildings, but aren’t as good up against rockets or helicopters. New to the series is a Navel fleet, adding battle by sea to the possible methods of attack the player can engage in. With a gripping and detailed story tying everything together, this game is a must have for anyone looking for a more tactical approach to their war games.
