This looks great, although curse these guys for specifically targeting my nostalgia!

Battlezone 2 was amazing, for the 3 people on the planet who played it. Hopefully this remaster gets some decent exposure, BZ2 was pretty impressive for its time, and I think the gameplay will still hold up today.

Loved BZ2 back in the day. Will have to get this at some point.

Probably cuz hovertanks. One big difference is that BZ is 3D and DR was top-down sprites.

I loved the original BZ, but the movement in BZ2 never felt right to me. I think the tanks just felt a little too weightless. Like they overcame their inertia too quickly maybe. I'm not exactly sure what it was.

I think I probably had other issues with it as well, but that's the one that sticks in my head. I'll have to see how this turns out. Love me some hovertanks
