Description

As its predecessor, Blitzkrieg, Blitzkrieg 2 is a real-time strategy game set during World War 2 featuring three campaigns. Typical for the Blitzkrieg series is that no base building or resource gathering is required. The player starts a mission with some core units, with which he should accomplish the given goals. During the missions, additional backup troops can be called in.

The three campaigns are:
  • USA's war in the Pacific
  • Germany fighting in Europe and North Africa
  • Soviet Union defending the homeland
Compared to the first part, the game engine is upgraded, allowing for full 3D, and there are more units, over 250. The game also contains a unit database, providing information on all these units, of which there exists an online version on the official website.
