  • Pros: Gameplay is as good as ever, Simple to pick up but hard to master, Online multiplay
  • Cons: 2 - Dimensional characters, Less single - player content than Advance Wars :  Dual Strike

  • Excerpt: Advance wars - Dark conflict should be banned for being overly addictive. I honestly dread to think just how many hours I've spent in the past few weeks playing through all the different missions. For those new to the series let me warn you now - patience is a virtue.

A well rounded RTS game for the DS. Well worth playing.

  • Excerpt: This game was a pleasant surprise. I hadn't heard of it before I got it for Christmas. Since then it has taken up a lot of my time. You start off as controlling Jake, a young gun who thinks he knows everything about warfare.

  • Excerpt: Advance Wars is probably the most successful series of strategy games on a portable gaming console. Dark Conflict is the second Advance Wars game on the DS and it proves to be a brilliant game that should easily provide with tons of entertainment...and make you think!

  • Excerpt: Brilliant new spin on the Advance Wars series, with a much darker plot (fantastic plot, I'd add... a post-apocalyptic politically anarchic communist society...? Awesome. I won't even spoil the more insane twists along the way) than previously, and the same top turn-based strategy as before.
