Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator 2 – Review – Bigger is not always better
Let’s chat about Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator 2 (UEBS2) – it’s like being in the director’s seat of a big-budget war movie. You’ve got “thousands of warriors slugging it out right there on your screen!” Some gamers have even reported seeing millions of fighters going toe-to-toe. Talk about a blockbuster!
But, let’s get real. UEBS2 is a bit of a mixed bag. There’s no denying it’s fun, but it does feel like something’s missing. You see, it’s a sequel to the original Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator. Both have the same premise: orchestrating epic battles with a legion of warriors, using stats like health, attack speed, and damage to decide the victors. So, it’s like you’re watching this massive showdown unfold live on your screen.
New Chapters and Troops
The good news? UEBS2 brings you a bunch of new campaigns and units. So, there are more battles for you to plunge into and more types of troops at your disposal. But apart from that, it’s not that different from the first game. They’ve even scrapped the time warp feature, which is a bit of a let-down. Here’s to hoping future updates will add some spice and set it apart from the first one.
Boosted Simulation Capabilities
Now, there’s one thing UEBS2 has over the original – its simulation prowess. This bad boy can handle a ton more units on screen, like a hundred times more! Plus, it’s smoother and faster. Picture this: a hoard of 500 duck-sized ducks duking it out with one t-rex-sized duck. Pretty wild, huh?
That being said, while the enormous battles in UEBS2 are jaw-dropping, they can get a bit stale. It’s cool to watch legions of trigger-happy muppets let loose, but that novelty only lasts so long. The lack of depth can make the game feel monotonous over time.
A Strategist’s Puzzle
Let’s switch gears and talk strategy. You can give your troops orders before the battle starts. They can charge, hold their ground, or guard. But here’s the thing: “holding ground” and “guarding” are pretty much the same deal. It feels like watching a bunch of action figures slam into each other till one side emerges victorious.
There’s this thing called the “RTS Mode” that lets you order your units during the battle. It adds a bit of depth, but it’s still a far cry from a real war. There’s no cover to take or chokepoints to exploit. It’s all about where you put your troops at the start, and then it’s just a matter of watching the mayhem unfold.
This lack of strategic depth can make the battles feel repetitive. It’s hard to keep coming back to watch the same stuff over and over. It’d be a real game-changer if they could code strategic thinking into all those virtual soldiers, making the battles feel more immersive and enticing.
Keeping Players on Their Toes
Alright, let’s tackle player engagement. You can do a bit of tinkering during battles, like customizing your units and playing around with god-powers. You can even take control of a unit yourself. But at the end of the day, you’re still mostly just watching the action. Now, imagine if you could change up the battlefield or the placement of your troops. Things like adding barriers or resources to the map, or putting your units in fortifications. That would really kick up the strategy and make every battle unique and thrilling.
Mods: A World of Endless Fun
Now for the coolest bit about UEBS2: the mods! You can effortlessly add mods to the game, bringing in units from famous franchises like Star Wars or Warhammer. It’s like recreating your favorite movie battles right on your screen. These mods definitely add some zest and replayability. But they still come up against the same issues as the base game, leaving you wanting more.
So, here’s the deal. Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator 2 is pretty breathtaking when it comes to the scale of the battles. You won’t find anything else like it. The modding scene adds a fun twist, too. But sadly, the game falls a bit flat when it comes to strategic depth and player interaction. It’s missing that special something that would make it truly epic. It’s definitely worth a play, but it could do with a bit more polish to take it to the next level.
