1up has posted its review of Battalion Wars 2 for the Nintendo Wii, giving it a surprising 6.5 out of 10 rating. The generally anticipated game is a more action-oriented game (as opposed to Advance Wars) and, according to 1up, lacks the charm of its console predecessor and handheld cousins.
From the article:
The root of the problem stems from its simply failing to work the various personalities into the game well — this begins with the flat, cartoonish cut-scenes used to introduce each mission. The few attempts at humor come off as forced, but worse yet, much of the time they become little more than matter-of-fact presentations. You won’t be able to ignore them, though: On the dividing line between funny and disastrous, most of the exaggerated voice work falls on the painfully bad side.
