The sequel to One Must Fall 2097 features a 3D engine with a perspective positioned behind the lead character's shoulder. As in the 1994 original, players select from a list of robots and their pilots before entering a tournament, where they must fight a series of opponents until they emerge victorious. Eight robot types are available, each possessing distinct fighting moves and special abilities. In addition to their rivals, players must be wary of the arenas themselves. The Blade Pit, for example, features circular saws spinning from the ground, while the Canyon's rocky cliffs are home to powerful guns that will fire upon players throughout the match.
Each robot character is controlled by one of over 30 pilots rated in agility, strength, focus, and endurance. Robots are guided across the eight arenas using four directions, while melee attacks make use of six buttons, including a jump button to evade oncoming projectiles such as fire blasts. Various finishing moves are available to reduce a rival opponent's robot to scrap metal, and the glory of victory can be revisited over and over again after recording the fight. One Must Fall: Battlegrounds also features a dynamic soundtrack that changes during battle. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
