destroy a vicious new enemy. Lethal Skies II is rated T for

taking on conventional combat crafts along with futuristic vehicles
such as VTOLs, hover-tanks, battle mechs, giant helicopters, mobile
fortresses and attack satellites. Lethal Skies II has more than 20
missions, including unlockable bonus missions where players can
reverse roles to become the enemy. Additional new features to the
sequel include split-screen and i.link 2-player mode, interactive 3D
battle maps, movie galleries, five different 1st and 3rd person POVs,
customizable background music and an all-new ability to issue
