Mushroom Wars 2 is, to sum up, a remarkable game. Zillion Whales offers a different option for those who would like to enter to the strategy genre, and for the fans of it, through minimalist and excelent gameplay, absorbing multiplayer and charming aesthetics.

Mushroom Wars 2 is a challenging yet fun real-time strategy game that focuses on battles between mushroom people. The gameplay takes a minute to get used to, but once you get acclimated, you'll be killing it. Hero skills are a cool addition that can turn the tide of battle if used correctly. There are a ton of missions that will give you hours of playtime.

At the end of the day, whether you played the first or not, Mushroom Wars 2 is an enjoyable RTS that is accessible to all and a cracking bit of fun to play. Multiplayer, whether local or online is a special kind of quick-paced, slap you in the face fun that balances things out in a very nice manner. Great game to pick up in short spurts, as it doesn’t have the depth to keep you invested for too long at a time. Well worth picking up if you are in the mood for some fun.

A sumptuous feast in multiplayer, but a bit bland and monotonous when going solo, Mushroom Wars 2 is nonetheless an accessible and deep and enjoyable real-time strategy experience. There is plenty to dig into, especially if you enter the online competitive arena. Although the game does show it's mobile roots on occasion as the single-player campaign is ironically 'by the numbers', Mushroom Wars 2 is definitely a dish best served cold, and with a group of fun guys or gals.

Mushroom Wars 2 is a fun, back-to-basics RTS that distills the core elements of the genre into one fungi-laden package. It might be too basic for hardcore players who want a lot more meat in their RTS game. For folks looking for a quick, pick-up-and-play RTS or those who want to introduce newcomers to the genre, however, this just might be well worth your truffle.

The gameplay of Mushroom Wars 2 is capable, there just isn't a lot to it. Despite the game's one-hundred plus levels, there's not enough deviation to justify sitting down with it for an extended period of time. It's more suited for playing a level or two while killing a brief amount of time. And that's okay, the game was designed for mobile platforms after all. For fifteen dollars, however, you can get a much more fulfilling experience.

An interesting mix between RTS and tower defense, Mushroom Wars 2 keeps on challenging with fast-paced, tactical battles. A suggested game, even if it can be a bit frustrating at times - especially if you are not so patient.

Beautiful music and cute, unique visuals aren't enough to save Mushroom Wars 2 from its flaws.

Mushroom Wars is a fun take on the real-time strategy genre that would be perfect for portable play if it weren't for some technical issues. Pacing can be a real annoyance, especially early on, but gradually fades as you progress further into the game. On the bright side, it is simple to learn, and its bite-sized levels are very addicting once you get going.

Mushroom Wars 2 is an addictive game suitable for players who want to practice their strategic skills in short, but challenging battles. Perfect for travelling with Nintendo Switch in full version, it only fails to utilize the touch screen to improve the game controls. Hero skills and mission variability compensate the lacking story.

Mushroom Wars 2 neither revolutionize the RTS genre, nor bring new ideas to it, and simply aims for providing a fun and entertaining experience. So if you are not looking for a very deep gameplay or engaging story, Mushroom Wars 2 would be a very good option for you.

Mushroom Wars 2 isn't a groundbreaking RTS, and it won't be changing the genre in any major ways, but it does stand out as a particularly strong title that's more than worth investing a few hours into.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this to any fan of tower defence or real-time strategy sims. Whilst screenshots look basic and simplistic and gameplay footage could be confusing to some, it is one of those games where you need to place the controller in your hands for it to consume you and reel you in.

Mushroom Wars 2 is a little strategy game with a nice design and good soundtrack - it's only made for shorter sessions though as it lacks something that keeps me motivated.

All in all while I can’t say Mushroom Wars 2 changed my mind about the genre, it’s certainly a great game for fans of it. There is a ton of content here and the multiplayer is robust and a ton of fun. I had a little issue with the controls here, but I feel that was mostly me being used to RTS games on a PC rather than a console. If you’re not a fan of this genre, you should probably avoid this one, but fans should certainly look into picking this one up at the $19.99 price tag. You will get a lot of bang for your buck.
