Glory Days 2

The Gamers Temple
14 January 2008
  • Excerpt: I'm willing to bet that it's been a while since you've played a side-scrolling shooter strategy game. In fact, it's quite possible that you've never played such a game because it's a rather unique game genre hybrid. But that's exactly what you have in Glory Days 2, a game that has you flying air support for the armies that you yourself build. Glory Days 2 is certainly a unique game, but unique doesn't always translate into good.

  • Excerpt: War vets are speaking out against war games. America's Army, the game used as a recruitment tool for the US Army has been scrutinized by vets as representing war as a game, something it obviously is not. I strongly doubt, however, that too many army men are sitting around shooting up stuff with their DS's, so Glory Days 2 will probably fly under their radar. Even if they did pick it up, vets would more likely be sincerely moved than upset by this game.

  • Conclusion: If you're in the market for a new action game for the DS then Glory Days 2 is one to consider. Sure it's too short, features a steep learning curve, and doesn't have online functionality. However, if you can look past those flaws you'll find an innovative title that branches out your expectations of what the action genre could be on the DS. The game is a lot of fun with plenty of depth and it has a fantastic presentation.

  • Excerpt: If the classic Apple II game Choplifter ever hooked up with Nintendo’s Advance Wars series, their love child might look a little something like Glory Days 2. Combining a high-flying, side-scrolling shooter with real-time military strategy, Glory Days 2 puts you in the dual role of combat pilot and army General.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Stiff fingers would be a bizarre circumstance for a military game enlisted in the strategy genre. But then, Glory Days 2 parachutes in far from the Advance Wars frontline of turn-based deployment, opting instead for an interesting approach that doubles RTS with side-scrolling shooter.
