One of the founding fathers of the burgeoning strategy/action genre is returning to the fray with a sequel that looks to take a giant leap forward. With three campaigns spread across several planets, Uprising 2 takes the fight onto alien turf. The basic concept's more or less the same, though: You not only drive a tank-like command vehicle, cutting a path through the carnage in standard action style, but you also must switch to a tactical/resource-management view to create and deploy units to aid you in the fight. The graphics are already eye-catching, and Cyclone reports that its focus is on making the game much more playable by providing a better interface and deeper scenarios. Thanks to strong multiplayer support and a built-in level editor, Uprising 2 looks like a promising prospect.
