I didn't like missile command way back when. Guess I still don't like it now. I got this in a humble bundle and decided to give it a shot in my quest to clean out my unplayed games. It's a pretty average game, it's solid in its own right. No glitches or any glaring issues in the short time I played, which was probably around 45 minutes (I idled for its 7 card drops). It's just... really boring. You click places to kill slow moving planes and destroy missiles, having to slightly lead them due to how your projectiles work. This seems like a flash game for tablets or something.

Not an awful game, but not enough to hold my interest.

TL;DR
Simplistic arcade action game where you are in command 2 ships fighting against a new terror threatening the world. Easy to play and fun in short burst but won't hold your attention in a long while so play it sparingly.

What is Battlegroup 2?
A simple game where you are in command of 2 ships firing missiles towards everything that moves towards you as the auto steer ships move along without your control. Quite fun in little sessions but boring if played too much.

+Fun arcadey experience
+Reflex testing gameplay
+Good difficulty scaling

+/-Generic music
+/-Average graphics

-Requires a few grinding
-enemies dont appear long enough sometimes so getting 100% is hard

Conclusion
Its good enough to be enjoyed in small dosage but wont really hold your attention in the long run.

It has a nice classic feel to the gameplay and even the "story" though not so deep may gain some light affection from older audiences. Through the game you play the role of the weapons controller for the main ship as it sets sail through various seas and channels as an onslaught of enemies try to take you down. The enemy leader as many have pointed out will bring memories of Cobra Commander as your captain exchanges words with him. All in all it kept me entertained and if by watching the video and looking at the screenshots it looks like something you could enjoy then go for it.

Gameplay Control Points:
1: You do not have to steer the ship, you only fire the main ship's weaponry. (Ammo recharges.)
2: As you progress through the game abilities become available for purchase & use: Reload 1/mission I think, EMP as many as you own, and time slow which is also as many as you own. Time slow drastically decreases game speed while increasing missile ROF, speed, and recharging.
3: You may unlock better ships with fuel from mission completions.
4: You may unlock support ships with fuel as well, these have 1-2 activatable weapons with a shots & time limit to them before they go into cooldown.
5: The controls are very simple and easy to use, I would recommend most people rebind them as they see fit. The one trick to the game is strategic use of abilities and proper pacing and accuracy/leading of enemy targets when firing the weapons.

Very short game I find though quite fun and addictive. GI Joe anyone?

The battleship is a must and in some ways overpowered. Once I had that ship, game was a breeze, got this game in a bundle and well worth that price. It's a fun short game and I guess the price reflects that.

The story is pretty shoddy and if you've played the first one? Then you know what to expect. It's an ok game but sure not worth spending anymore than under $2.00 on.
