Product Description

Product Description

When the original version of Battalion Wars was released on the GameCube, the major criticism was that the game needed a better control system, which is exactly what the Wii version provides. This is not simply a battlefield strategy game where you position your planes, tanks, and ships and then watch the results. Here you can take direct control of your weaponry to affect the outcome. Battalion Wars 2 still requires plenty of thought amidst the shoot ‘em-up action, and there’s even an online multiplayer mode so you can play your friends.

Great little game we have here! Heard all the good reviews and thought I'd take th eplunge and get it! Not disappointed at all! easy controls, great graphics, funny looking units! Whilst in the think of battle getting use to the unit selection may get fiddly but easily mastered with practice! A good excuse to play more often methinks! Beware of those pesky aircrafts tho - fast and can bomb your group to oblivion!

Battalion wars 2 is a strategy/ third person shooter genre and gets a lot less credit than it deserves. There are many different units you can control across 6 unique civilisations. The civilizations are all cheeky replicas of real countries, including the british, russians, americans, japanese and germans. All the units are very easy to control and fun to use across the campaign and online. U'll be fighting and using grunts, mortars, flamethrowers, bazookas, tanks, AA vechiles, subs. bombers fighters and all the like. Utilise every unit to your advantage and your s-ranks will start rolling in quickly.

Campaign 4/5: it'll last you a long while. Each level is particuarly short at about 10-15 mins long each but there are many levels for each civilisation. You don't have to work that strategically to win to begin with and it eases you in nicely. When you reach the last two campaigns however you need to start getting strategic and work hard to earn your way past those battles. Slightly short but excellent for the budding single player wii user.

Online 5/5: its not what i was expecting. You can't just choose a map, a side, a game type and score limit. There are many different pre-set levels across 3 game modes. Co-op, assault and skirmish. In co-op you work with someone to achieve common goals, in skirmish its a standard fight as you battle to control areas and facilities, in assault you have to defend or attack a enemy hq. Not all misssions will be open to you staright away. You will have to play the levels you've unlocked already to unlock new levels which gives a sense of purpose online.

All in all a fantastic online game and good for single players too!

I was unsure about buying this title but as it has received such great reviews in the gaming press I'd give it a try. Whilst this isn't the kind of game I'd normally play, I have to say I'm really impressed, from the opening mission that gently eases you into the game through to its multiplayer aspect it is superb. Visually it is one of the best on the Wii, with some fantastic water effects, with a large amount of animation on the screen at any one time. As a game that can be approached in so many different ways and on so many levels, Battalion Wars 2 should appeal to anyone who likes a bit of good old-fashioned strategic action. Instead of buying PDC Darts or Carnival games, invest in this, you won't be disappointed.

Perhaps more than any other Nintendo game, BWii shows both the weakness and strength of the big white one's gaming agenda.

Filled with charming art design and simple adaptable controls BWii should ride up there with the likes of Metroid and Mario. However, bouyed by Official Nintendo's 90% score I have to say I'm mostly underwhlemed, but certainly don't regret paying for it.

Marketed (and subsequntly trumpted by ONM) as a strategy game, I cant help but feel disappointed. Never getting near its handheld cousin Advance Wars, BWii plays out more like a charming, bright third person blaster and this is both its greatest strength and weakness.

The single player campaign is indeed fun. You can try out a variety of troops, vehicles (land, sea and air based), destroy buildings and cause cutesy carnage on the opposition, all with a control scheme slightly better than that of a traditional console because of the wii-pointer.

The problem is that its not really challenging. Keeping the 'paper-scissor-stone' structure of Advance wars (where each unit has a strength and vulnerability) you lead your troops across a variety of terrains, destroying all in your path. However while the nintendo website convincves you that you have control for a whole battlefield, the opposite is true. It might tell you that you can call in air strikes or heavy artillery, but in reality all you do is make sure your troops survive the linear route plotted on your map. If you make it to the airport (mind you you can't g anywhere else), you get planes. The reason you get planes is because there is artillery ahead that will destroy your troops. No tactical acumen of any sort is required as your hand is held like this throughout the game.

This game is amazingly well made. Firstly the visuals really stand out and look fanstastic. The art style is well polished and well textured with great looking character models and scenery. A good selection of colours are on display and really compliment each other.

The story in the game is well written, as you play on a variety of sides each with their own battles that interlink. The nations in the game are representiative of the major powers in the world today and each given a hilarious character.

The game plays like a dream with the wii remote completely enhancing the gameplay. It's very simple to point and shoot at enemies. However there are times when it can get a bit hectic where you lose yourself but on these times are extremely rare. There are some good motion sensing implementations, like flicking the nunchuck to jump and twisting the wiimote to turn the fighter jets. Speaking of fighter jets, those are accompanied by frigates, subs, light/heavy tanks etc. bascially wide array of units. The campaign mode is slighlty shorter than i would have liked but striving to get A or S grades on every mission will take some well earned time, (the game rewards you with bonus content for this).

Then of course the online, amazing. Difficult to get into first, and you will lose the first few times as you get to learn the online maps. the online keeps the replayability of this game going for a long time to come. There are the dreaded friend code system again but there is also a match up syatem with random people, which works well. There is also a co op mode for those who haven't honed their skills yet, although the lack of voice/text communication does hinder the enjoyment of this mode.
