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 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.
Conclusion: First had a go on this game on the weekend and I couldn't put it down. Its is a very nice and addictive turn base strategy game for the DS if you have long train/bus journeys to work this maybe ideal or if you going on holidays would be good to pass the time while laying on the beach as you do get...
Conclusion: I liked this game, it's fun, addictive, funny ( apart from the bad jokes from one of the characters) and it's strategic. The only reason i gave this one a 4 star is because there isn't much help when your in trouble, the leveling up is a nice addition aswell.
