Iron Soldier 2 puts you back in the pilot's seat of a 42 foot tall humanoid war machine. The old Iron Fist corporation is gone, and a new democratic republic has been set up. The peace is short lived, though. Iron Fist's rival, PENTA corporation, is now threatening the United Republic's stability. You are a pilot for the United Republic, and must stop PENTA's advances.
Iron Soldier 2 plays similarly to the first game. You have new weapons, new enemies, and 20 super-challenging missions to contend with.
Originally released on CD, Telegames later released a cartridge version, featuring the same gameplay as the CD version, but lacking music as well as having had the FMV sequences replaced with still images due to space constraints.
Like several Jaguar games, Iron Soldier 2 was very close finished when Atari merged with JTS. It didn't get released by Atari though. Telegames published it, though it came out nearly a year after it was done. Part of the delay was due to production problems with the unusual 790 MB format the Jaguar CD drive uses. In fact, the first several hundred copies were released on CD-R media.
