GOG release: “Uprising 2: Lead and Destroy”

Only a year later in 1998, Cyclone Studios’ RTS-action mix Uprising 2: Lead and Destroy, the follow-up to Uprising: Join or Die, showed up on people’s monitors and is now resurrected by Retroism.

Never change a winning team is something the games industry is always keen to stress, and even if it doesn’t always work, in most cases it helps to simply refine old gameplay mechanics and slightly improve graphics. Uprising 2: Lead and Destroy is such a case, as it’s nearly identical-looking and playing as its predecessor. What this means is that the same tank action and base building strategy elements make for a well-known experience.

The story isn’t much to write home about, as the violent and intelligent alien race Kri’iSara wants to annihilate humanity, with the player being the only hope to strike back with the hi-tech tank and troops. At least 36 missions (28 of which are divided into mini-campaigns) offer enough playtime, while the action on display still looks and sounds quite nice.

There isn’t much else to say about the game, because it looks so much like the original, but a level editor helps to create one’s own missions and adventures. It’s available on Steam since the exclusive release on GOG, but this doesn’t mean one can’t get any DRM-free fun out of the old RTS-action hybrid.
