Great little turn based strategy game

Mr M E Blandy, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I decided to visit this classic after buying a 3DS XL just before Christmas rather than an Xbox One (no good games out until mid 2014 at least). Graphics are quirky and fun, and still look pretty good through the 3DS XL larger screens (advance wars is from the old DS, but the 3DS systems are backwards compatible). Gameplay is addictive, pretty simple to pick up but hard to master and think ahead.

Great game - even has map editor and can play over wifi.

  • Summary: Fantastic game. The best game I currently have for DS. They have introduced experience to units now, so its more worthwhile buying the more expensive units during gameplay. (ie in past mechs were best value for money). Worth having, especially at the price.

Yes it's even better then the excellent Dual Strike!

  • Summary: Advance Wars: Dark Conflict is like Command And Conquer with Chess mixed together. You have your troops, tanks, aeroplanes, battleships, helicopters and factorys for building more units. Altogether there are 26 different types of troops and transport you can build. When I say it is a bit like Chess it is because you have to take it in turns at moving your army.

Awesome

  • Conclusion: Dark Conflict moves away from the often far too cute story line of the previous games. It is war after all. Control and game mechanics remain mostly the same with some tweaks. The single player game features tutorials to take newbs through the learning curve. Its an enjoyable campaign and also unlocks COs for use on line or in one off games.

Get It!

  • Conclusion: Fantastic game! The strategy is so deep, and it looks so slick, you can create new units and the new dark look is cool, plays as good as Dual Strike, and looks even slicker. Beware though: it is immensely addictive! It's like carrying war around in your pocket!

  • Conclusion: First got into advance wars on the GBA and was interested to see the amendments for the DS. Game plays virtually the same as the GBA version although you can control with the stylus, which is good, "if it aint broke....".

  • Conclusion: This is an excellent turn based strategy war game, it has a storyline running through it to give some kind of direction and reason for each battle (The story left me cold but some people will enjoy it I am sure).

"tactical, streamlined, focused"

Cristopher, Mighty Ape
18 June 2008
  • Summary: This is exactly what the series needed: new and restructured units that allows for more focus on your tactics and meta game, revamped CO system, more streamlined gameplay, and Wi-Fi battles over the internet. The Campaign starts off fairly easy if your an Advance Wars vet but quickly ramps up in difficulty that provides enough challenge, but really it just seems to be a long and drawn out tutorial that prepares you for online battles.
