What brought me to Battlezone 2
is similar to what would make me interested in Aliens versus Predator 2
nowadays if I had yet to try it. There is a game - a reintroduced retro product - with a dedicated forum, but the flood of people constantly asking about re-release of the sequel, telling how important the sequel was to them, just makes one to wonder what is it in that sequel making it so special. Sometimes it works, sometimes not with me, but I guess with Battlezone 2
somehow it has gotten to me. But Battlezone
series in general is a difficult play, only the multiaspectedness combined with simultaneousness of the action is enough to make certain categories of players say this is too much. The game is complicated, as well as sometimes messy only due to the formula, especially from the first person view. It is also very much a freestyle game, transgressing certain very strict divisions, which itself is confusing. Some good will or courage is needed to give it a try and think one can be good at it, as multiple skills need to be developed, which typically belong to very different kinds of digital entertainment, such as grand strategy and fast paced shooters.

That is why I think one base led by couple of players, some responsible for attack, some for defense, is a more handy solution, though for the very skilled, this could be a hindrance. So perhaps 3 v 1?
