Battle Group 2 is a short and sweet Missile Command type of game. Guide your ships through hostile waters while eliminating threats and incoming projectiles with the weapons at your disposal. It's very simple in concept, but a lot of fun for the price.

Yes, this game is a mobile port, but as far as mobile ports go, Battle Group 2 is an excellent one. It plays very well as a quick casual game to kill a couple of hours, though that's about it as the game is lacking in singleplayer content. The purchasing and upgrading of new warships is a nice feature, but the campaign is unfortunately very short-lived. If it were a bit lengthier, I would have no faults to give this otherwise fun game.

Definitely recommended. Hopefully an update or a sequel comes along soon.

Pro:
Often in bundles - on sale
OK strategy - OK not great
Kinda Arcady - is that a word?
Steam cards & achieves
Simple controls
Low system spec

Con:
When not on sale I'm not sure $8.79 CDN is worth it. To me it's more of a $5 or less play it for an afternoon game.
Kinda boring after a while. It's more of a play for an hour or two and come back to it type of game than a play for 36 hours straight kind of game.
No demo
To me it's too much of a railroad you through this game

Overall:
5/10 +1 not bad gameplay / fun = 6/10
Get it on sale only

I got it in a bundle for next to nothing - so thumbs up. If it was full price I would say thumbs down.

General
You command battleships, small arensal to ac carriers. You can only have 1 battleship and a secondary ship by choice. When on the battlefield against advanced pirates, the gameplay can be slow or will knock your socks off with speed! Though, you have tactical advantages: i.e. EMP, instant reload of cooldowns and the ability to instantly destroy all incoming missiles.

Upgrading your ships can have a great affect on the battlefield. Decrease reload times, increase health, and more.

My Opinion
Battle Group 2 was such a surprise for me. Having doubts about getting Steam games lately can put some toll on you. Battleships to Aircraft Carriers, Battle Group 2 will make you prioritize and strategize against your pirate enemies. The campaign is very short, at least 1h or less of gameplay via campaign and Xh for the extra parts of the game like achievement gathering for example. Yes, Battle Group 2 does have easy achievements for avid achievement farmers. Strategy wise Battle Group 2 (when on the battlefield) will make you think, "Should I use this before I do anything else? Should I destroy this missile before it hits me or continue to take down more important threats?"

There's plenty of enemies to fight and win against. Don't think twice, just think before acting!

Overall
First time I saw this game I knew it was a winner. If I had to give this game con(s), it would be that the campaign could've had more levels and two ships were proven to be the only best ships to fight with. Overall, it is a fine game to master.

Rating: 7/10

Sometimes, I just want something straight forward, something without much commitment. This game pretty much fulfills all that. It is essentially prioritisation and estimation of distances. Fun and fast.
