  • 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, though on the campaign mode objectives may differ. This also involves dealing with terrain, fog of war and weather changes.

  • 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 HQ. Sometimes there are other victory conditions involved. These can be retain possesion of 20 cities or protect a specific air unit from being destroyed.

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. You use him through some basic levels before getting to control other characters. Each has their own special move which is very handy in later missions. You get to control a whole range of vehicles which cause destruction.

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. Well, Intelligent Systems, one of the most respected names in game development, is going to change the way you think about video games. Advance Wars, released in 2001, was a huge hit, and soon a follow-up game was released.

A must buy for anyone who likes strategy games

  • 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. What I mean is that you'll progress in the game until you get to a point where you simply can't get any further and you can't work out how to win (unless you get the answers online).

You might want to pick up AW:DS first!

  • 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.

Very Addictive

  • 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 totally immersed in the game.

A Decent Game for the DS

  • 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.
