M.A.X. II picks up where M.A.X. left off. A new alien invader has appeared. You're going to have use all your new units and gather the factions if you're going to triumph over the alien menace.

M.A.X. II adds a full-blown real time option to go with the simultaneous and turn-based modes. To assist, you can drop a camera at any location on the map to get simultaneous views of the battlefield.
