Excerpt: The Advance Wars series has always been a solid and fun tactical gameplay experience for handheld consoles. For those not familiar with the series it is a turn-based game where you as the Commanding Officer (or CO) build up your army of units to beat the enemy force or capture their HQ on a set map,...
A very good Turn Based War game with a lasting challenge.

Excerpt: This game is a turn based, strategic War Game. It is one of the sequels to the advance wars games from Game Boy advance & is the second for the Nintendo DS. The aim of the game on each level (or map as they are known in the game) is to either wipe out all opposing enemy troups, or capture the enemy...
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.
Very deep and incredibly fun strategy with online multiplayer capabilities

Excerpt: What comes to mind when you think of the words "video game"? Perhaps mindless shooting of unnamed enemies, long, involved role-playing games, or high-speed racing through city streets at night. Does thinking come to mind? Probably not.
Excerpt: Firstly, I should say that this is a fantastic game and possibly the best strategy game I've ever played, certainally on a hand held console in any case. The reason it doesn't get the full 5 stars is because inevitably (unless you're some kind of genius), you'll hit a wall at some point.
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.
Summary: Ok, we get it, war is bad. But if you're going to make a war game, don't sermonise endlessly about the evils of blowing up enemy tanks. The makers of advance wars seem to have come over all guilt-ridden, and there is an awful lot of rather clunky dialogue about how terrible it is to be forced into a...
Not as good as the Advance Wars games that came before it...

Summary: ... but the bar has always been incredibly high when a series is this good. I feel many are being too critical about the new story and style - I feel the style and tone don't stray too far away from past titles in the series (especially Advance Wars 2 for the GBA) but, like many others, was not as...
