Mushroom Wars 2 is a game with plenty of planned-out moves, fast-paced action, and competitive gameplay! I have never played Mushroom Wars before, but after the first time trying this game out, I may just need to buy the first copy as well! It would be great to compare and see what I’ve missed from the first game, cause when I enjoy a game so much, I have to have each edition!
It’s got everything I could ask for in a game, the need for total focus, planning of attacks, and doing what I need to, keeping my many little mushroom men alive. However, losing a few won’t hurt, they are always reborn, even if some have to take a fatal defeat. So as sad as it might be, there is no time to just pause and shed a tear or feel upset over the loss. Instead, my tip is to just keep moving along, as there is so much going on, there will be more mushroom men growing like weeds. So as in a real war, it’s okay some will perish, but more warriors will be reborn and the battle; war can continue!
Oh and what else makes this game feel enjoyable is the music, which is a perfect fit for this game. It sounds like a small army of warriors and brings you a legendary kingdom feeling. It’s one thing you’ll remember, where the tune of the game belongs too. However, while having it playing loud, by the way, it might just be my television, it came in a bit distorted. After a bit of adjusting the volume, the sound played smoothly, as it should. Plus, the rest of the music during each level is also perfect with the gameplay. It’s something that just doesn’t hinder one’s mind or focus while playing this entertaining game.
Also, add in the design of the game it is very friendly, especially for one’s eyes. Including the sound effects. The entire game is one that I’d say is lovable for everyone to play. Plus, taking into consideration the ease of control is one thing that really is delightful about this game! It’s not difficult, but it could be easy to forget when starting out. The game sets you up to learn each key, but even as it claims to be easy, I felt it to still be a bit complex with the different buttons and selecting which place to send the troops next or selecting the right location easily. I also just feel the mapping is a little hard to recall, but after a few times, it gets easier.
After going through the easy mode, you can unlock the harder levels, which require more focus and quick decision-making, on your part as the player. It’s basically all up to you, and I see it as if I’m the invisible instructor; a leader that is guiding the men towards each location that needs to be built up, to be stronger or to battle to overtake another’s building, till each of them is our men to rule over. It’s just exhilarating and yet challenging. Even playing against the computer can be a bit hard. Especially, on easy if you’re starting out and learning how to rotate and direct the army towards the right building.
Oh but the best thing to know about the game is that it’s all about numbers. The more you have in one place and head them towards the enemy, the more you can conquer another’s turf or vice versa. All in all, it’s an excellent game. Takes tons of time, which will pass so fast while playing. You’d be amazed that this game will have you so focused for hours and time will begin to soar by so fast. Honestly, I’ve been finding myself totally emerging into the action going on during the game because I just can’t stop planning and attacking.
Nevertheless, the game is what I would consider compelling, demanding of one’s time, and fully satisfying! It’s a sensation that I’m excited to play anytime, but I wouldn’t plan to play it if I have not much time because it will take a while to defeat a game, except if it’s the tutorial levels then that is a piece of cake. The real game levels are a bit more time-consuming and challenging.
Especially, if you add online or local play with friends or family. It will have you nonstop making decisions, sometimes without even a chance to play beforehand. Just do what you can to survive and see who comes out on top! Consequently, I want to say that it’s one of the best strategy games I could have played, with great graphics, music and so much action that I tune out everything else and just want to focus on the game because winning is my goal!
