is a dark place, barely lit by the ever-present coronal glares
of stars like our sun that inhabit and make up the universal
populous. Planets and galaxies are seemingly so far apart that
be their life on them or not, we could never hope to reach them.
That would all be true if it weren't for the incident a few
decades back where mankind discovered that other worldly life
that could indeed reach us.
the war between man and organic machine the human race took
an astounding leap forward and finally came together. Now propelled
into the black of space, expanding and evolving together as
time would pass. Then just as humanity started to sit back in
its seat after the last war a new one is about to start. This
would be a cold, dark and unforgiving war, a war like no other
and one that would rage and rage until both sides stood on the
brink of annihilation - this would be the Battlezone.
is the sequel to Battlezone that was the remake of the original
arcade hit and took the PC gaming scene like no other since
the emergence of Doom by ID Software. With battlezone we saw
a whole new era of gameplay, a story driven mass of action,
adventure and resource management akin to Command & Conquer.
Graphically flawless for the time it was a game that told the
story of war between man vs machine and the struggle to win
against the creations of the mind.
(bz2) sets itself several decades in the future where the ISDF
(A universal space defence force) built from the conflicts between
the super powers in the previous game are busy exploring the
galaxy. Low and behold just as everything is going fine, all
of a sudden you encounter a new race and guess what, they aren't
very friendly. As you may have come accustomed to with previous
Battlezone games, not everything is always what it seems and
BZ2 is much the same. You can expect the plot to twist and turn
right up to the final level, if you make it that far because
BZ2 gets hard later on, very hard.
some sequels BZ2 isn't in theory all that different from the
original, although in reality when you play it the differences
are on a global scale. As well as a totally different graphics
engine, sounds, models and story the gameplay has also changed
to be more involving than the last one.
