XBLA Review: Assault Heroes 2by Rick Wallace
If you played the first assault heroes then you’ll feel right at home as soon as you load this game up and begin playing. You’ll encounter many foes whom you fought in the first game, as well as many more new and improved weaponry and enemies. One of the major differences veterans of the series will notice is that Assault Heroes 2 is graphically upgraded in every way over its predecessor. The entire environment is now destructible and can be used to your advantage in creating chain reaction explosions. You’ll find your self burning up trees and blowing up crates to take out large groups of enemies.
For those that never played the game, the basic concept is simple. Shoot everything that moves, and well, everything that doesn’t as well. You’ll traverse the levels in your all-terrain vehicle completely loaded with wide abundance of advanced weaponry. From freeze guns to heat guided missiles, you’ll be wreaking havoc on the landscape. Each weapon is upgradeable as well by collecting upgrade icons that you’ll find along the way. You’ll find that the typical machine gun works the best for many situations as it’s a rapid fire weapon that allows you to spread ammunition across the battlefield quickly. There are other vehicles that you can obtain such as a chopper, tank and a mech suit.
