"Blitzkrieg 2" is a real-time tactics computer game based on the events of World War II, the game is an evolution of its predecessor "Blitzkrieg". The game takes place in Africa, Russia, the Pacific and Europe, and features the different sides that fought there during the war.

Features and factions

As its predecessor and the similar "Sudden Strike "games, "Blitzkrieg 2 "focuses on the battles of World War II rather than real-time strategy aspects like base building and resource extraction. The game features many new features and units over its predecessor; the graphics engine is upgraded, allowing for full 3D and the game features over 250 units compared to "Blitzkrieg"'s 200.

The game contains five sides:
*Soviet Union
*Great Britain and France
*USAJapan was newly added for "Blitzkrieg 2 "for the new Pacific theatre. The game also includes an encyclopedia of all units, so you can easily read about the units you get to see ingame. There is an online version of this at the [ "Blitzkrieg 2 "website] .

Critical reaction

The game was not well received, as the game took away heavily from the original RTS genre, and gave itself to more of an arcade one. Many players of the original "Blitzkrieg "decided to stay with it because they preferred the realism of "Blitzkrieg "which "Blitzkrieg 2 "had thrown away. Another reason was because several models from the original game were just re-cycled and used in the game. The Russian rail artillery is one of these, as it has no real use ingame. "Blitzkrieg 2 "did not reach the success that "Blitzkrieg "had reached. However, an expansion pack has been released on February 20, 2007, entitled "". Another expansion pack entitled was released on October 12, 2007 in the EU.
