Features and factions
As its predecessor and the similar "
Sudden Strike"games, "Blitzkrieg 2 "focuses on the battles of World War IIrather than real-time strategyaspects like base building and resource extraction.

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 packhas been released on February 20, 2007, entitled "". Another expansion packentitled was released on October 12, 2007 in the EU.
