Unless Shepard paired two characters together for an away mission, the games' primary casts rarely strayed ...

GD2 is an excellent side-scroller, RTS hybrid. 0

Glory Days 2 spices up the side-scrolling shooter genre with light strategy elements. As you fly your plane or copter, you'll juggle the tasks of:engaging enemy fighters, bombing vehicles, rescuing civilians, capturing bunkers, and funding an army, all in an attempt to win a tug of war. Sound hectic? It is. Attempting to juggle all these factors can be an overwhelming ordeal. But Glory Days 2 streamlines these elements with an effective control scheme that allows you to quickly manage all the...
