DFG Exclusive Review Summary

Average, has some problems & recommended with caution.


  • The added variety of three different episodes and an Xmas crazy pack lets you fight in some very different locations, such as deserts, stormy grasslands, wintry mountain ranges, and even in space
  • Unlock guns as you progress through each episode and get to use a handful of rapid fire weapons such as a B17's machine gun, gattling guns, rapids small missile launchers, and the all powerful rocket launcher


  • The action can get a bit repetitive since you are pretty much only shooting aircraft out of the sky before they can destroy certain objectives, such as a fleet of boats, your wing of bombers, the buildings within your base, or a futuristic portal
  • Each level has one specific weapon so there isn't much strategy involved in keeping track of ammo or swapping weapons during a mission

Gunner 2 Review

Review by Alex

Gunner 2 is an arcade-style shooter that will have you behind the sights of a fixed gun trying to fend of swarms of enemy aircraft. The action spans three episodes and an extra Xmas Crazy Pack with each set in a different time period.

From World War II to UFOs

In Episode 1 you'll find yourself defending boats and bomber wings as you battle in different World War II era settings, while Episode 2 is set in a more modern setting with you defending bases from flights of enemy helicopters. Finally Episode 3 and the bonus pack will take you into the future where you must defend against a variety of UFO's in different space locales.


Variety of Guns

Also, with each episode you'll come across a variety of weapons such as a B17's machine gun, gattling guns, rapids small missile launchers, and the all powerful rocket launcher. This mixture of environments and different fixed artillery adds a bit to the variety of gameplay and provides some rather intense fight sequences, especially later on in the episodes, where you'll be hard pressed to keep track of the many enemy aircraft swooping in from all directions.

Can Get Repetitive

The gameplay though can start to get a little repetitive as you realize each mission is pretty much exactly the same. While the aircraft might change slightly between each episode, they act in pretty much precisely the same manner and they don't change all that much as you reach later chapters, there are just more of them and they take more damage before plummeting from the skies.


Another issue is that each level gives you only one weapon and most are just variations on some kind of machine gun that are progressively more powerful as you make your way through the chapters in an episode, that is until you reach the higher two tiers of weapons and get to use rockets but that takes nearly 29 chapters before they are unlocked. Also, since your ammo just comes from your overall score there isn't much strategy or such concerns as swapping around weapons, you simply blast away with one gun until all the waves have been repelled.

Conclusion - Not Enough Variety for Long Term Enjoyment

Overall, Gunner 2 does provide at least some variety and some intense moments as you try to fend off the hoards of enemies. While the gameplay can get a bit stale and repetitive, if you are looking for some mindless arcade shooting action then Gunner 2 is a perfect game for you. At the very least its worth checking out the demo and getting a taste of the gameplay to see if it's enough to drag you in for more hours of plane blasting action.
