Additionally, the game shipped with more than twenty real and potential scenarios between an assortment of combatants including the US, USSR, various NATO and Warsaw Pact Countries, and Asian powers.
It is a turn-based strategy game, set on a map divided into hexagons. The basic game engine (graphics, user interface etc.) is nearly the same as in part one, with minor improvements. One important difference is the scale of the game: a bigger map, more units, which have more statistic values etc.
Included are six campaigns and a bunch of scenarios. An additional campaign generator is also included. The preset campaigns are:
- Germany 1980 (a fictional WW3: stop Soviet advance through Fulda Gap)
- Desert Storm 1991
- China-War 1997 (fictional: defend Taiwan against the invading (communist) Chinese Army)
- Okinawa 1998 (fictional: a new US-Japanese war)
- Golan Heights 1973
- Korea 1950
