Welcome to Cannon Fodder 2. The hapless soldiers from the first game have been kidnapped by damn, dirty aliens, to see if they can save their own world from invasion. These aliens possess a time machine capable of transporting our not-quite-valiant troops to any period in human history, and they’re going to use it to test the chaps’ abilities in battle. Fortunately, for our boys in uniform, there’s an alien who sympathizes with their plight. He doesn’t agree with how the soldiers are treated and ensures that the ammo is plentiful. Only through the sheer will to live while remaining unventilated can our soldiers survive the grueling 72 stages and return to their own time, in one piece, mind you. Through five different time zones, they’ve got to battle against increasingly remote odds and kick their kidnapper’s butts. Only then can they retire to a place where the sun’s always shining and they serve drinks with those little umbrellas in them.

Guide your stalwart troopers through time as they try to get through this war intact. Blending a perfect mix of action and small-scale strategy, Cannon Fodder 2 is simple yet very, very addictive. Capture vehicles such as the Choppa, the Jeep, and the Tank. Man any turrets you find while on the field of battle and turn the enemy’s weapons against them. Will you bring our boys back home?

Hard as Nails!

If you struggled with the original, expect to find this much harder!
On initial play, the game flows in more easily that Cannon Fodder 1, but soon gets far more intense.
When your not fighting off hoards of soldiers in the desert, your losing men to Aliens!?
A fantastic game from a genre that has really struggled to better these two gems from the 90's
Even the recent Cannon Fodder 3 couldn't deliver what these could!

Actually, the games originated on the Amiga, not the consoles

This was a decent game, though not as good as the brilliant original. Very much more of the same, with pretty much no innovation. Still... if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Wasted opportunity

The only interesting thing about this game is how it manages to be so much less enjoyable than the original despite being essentially exactly the same game. Apparently Sensible Software delegated the level design to a computer games journalist who had no prior experience of actually designing computer games. The result, unsurprisingly, is a load of badly designed levels. Theread more whole thing is gimmicky and uninspired and completely lacks the charm of the original ... but even so it's still kind of fun to play.
