    This guy got Battalion Wars II sent to him from Nintendo and typed up some interesting info after playing for three hours.

    Overall it seems like he's pretty pleased with it, although the single player campaign may be a bit short, but he's not sure since he hasn't finished the game.

    Another point about local multiplayer may disapoint some:

    ^This article scares me... I was expecting split-screen multiplayer. I just wish this wasn't true...

    Not really I kind of figured it was gonna be like that... I mean common could you imagine how insane the game would be split screen... There is to much to pay attention to that the game would just be a nightmare...

    I will still be getting this, it seems too good to pass up despite all that crap.
    Should be a dandy still.

    Poster up there is right, people cry over not having split screen multiplayer but can you imagine trying to fit everything on a modest screen size? All the attacking, units, aiming etc? It would be hell. I support the wi-fi coop as long as its easy to find your friend

    Yea too bad theres only one player per wii :( Its not a huge let-down for me. I usualy play alone or on internet.

    It looks good. Im certainly going to get it

    The one player per Wii option is the only thing that is worrying me as well, but I am sure that the online mode and the single player section will make up for it. :

    for $50 iduno if its worth it though, i like to play with friends and family expecially a co-op(where you cant communicate via headset) it will make it alot easier to have a friend join on the same console..i don't have any clue why they didnt think of that..

    You have a point there, but I am sure that the game will still be great as long as you have friends, each with a Wii console. :lol:

    Lol why such a big deal about no local multiplayer? Does any1 remember the Red Steel multiplayer good gosh, it was dreadful. Aiming shooting, in that small box screen using IR. Lol good thing for me, all my friends have wiis. We've already got plans for the sat of that weekend to beat it all on co op online. It's kind dissapointing with no local multi player but still it's definetely worth $50

    I hope theres 2 vs 2 or 1 vs 1

    I will be BUMBED OUT ! really hard if there isnt. That's almost the thing Im looking out for most in this game. Im worried that if you do coop games online that you will only be running behind the player who's fastest

    Wow, what a dissapointment this is. I really just want some games that I can play with my friends. This is crap. Is MoH going to be like this?

    Not a lot of wireless modems in consoles in 1985. It would be more like 1985 if it did support local multiplayer.

    Most of us grew up with the tiny splitscreen option as the only one--and even before that, with single screen when two people couldn't be outside the same tiny area of the game (i.e. contra coop), and having people in the same room when possible can be enormous fun. IR is not especially more difficult than dual analog in the same size split. Red Steel's biggest failing was its controls (for instance, taking about 12 minutes to turn 180 degrees while you're being shot in the back of the head), and despite them, you can still have a lot of fun playing the multiplayer if you're willing to adapt your play style.

    For those people whose friends don't own a Wii, splitscreen would be their only option to spread the joy. Having a larger pool of players you can play anytime is sweet, however marred by FCs, but it isn't going to fit everyone's preferences. It is relevant to complain about not being able to play anyone who isn't willing to shell out 300 bucks for the console and the game.

    ^ What? come on, do they think that people have no friends. If I want to play online I won't be looking towards MoH for that, I'd rather play BF2 with 64 people online and with Choppers, Tanks, Cars, and Airplanes, and yet better graphics. Along with better controls, what the heck is going on in the gaming world. I wanted to have my friends come over and all play with the wii-zapper. wtf

    Love BF2. I think it's even better than Halo. This sucks though, I really wanted split screen.
