Cannon Fodder 2, Amiga

Cannon Fodder 2 is for players who want to overdose on Cannon Fodder and simply did not get enough of its predecessor.

Graphically Cannon Fodder 2 is quite lovely, and the same great gameplay is evident in this sequel, but somehow it’s missing something… It’s difficult to say what. Maybe discipline and focus. The endless fantasy levels are sometimes cleverly put together, but not always.

Cannon Fodder 2 – as I said earlier – is mostly for those who didn’t get enough from the first game. If you’ve played neither, I highly recommend the original Cannon Fodder over this.

Cannon Fodder 2 was developed by Sensible Software and published by Virgin Interactive Entertainment in 1994.

  1. I highly recommend the book on Sensible Software if you’ve never read it. Aside from being a cracking read, it does reveal how troubled CF2’s development was. If I remember, it was meant to be much more focused on a plot around time travel, but a lot of it got stripped out and what was left didn’t make much sense.

    1. Thinking more about it, it probably is a plot that is missing, but then again: the gameplay of Cannon Fodder doesn’t really lend itself to a dialogue, or text-based narrative, beyond the objective screen, so they probably found that trying to add a story didn’t work, so removed it.
