Great little turn based strategy game

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.
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. You can't simply build one tank then charge the enemy headquarters, there is a lot more to it than that which can lead to quite lengthy skirmishes.
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.
Excerpt: Advance Wars is a great fun, challenging and stylish military strategy game. As you make your way through the game you get a greater choice of weaponry and commanders to use (each with their own special military skills) in different scenarios. You must use power and brains to defeat the evil opposition and win through.
Excerpt: I was very excited to get my hands on Advance Wars: Dark Conflict because I loved previous Advance Wars so much - and I have to say, it did not disappoint! You get a great strategy game with a huge number of scenarios and battles. You can play stand-alone battles but the main point for me is to get through the main story, where you fight a sequence of battles against various evil opponents!
The most fun you can have with your DS over the longest period of time, Turn Based Strategy evolved.

Excerpt: The first Advance Wars title to be released on the DS platform. Advance Wars: Dual Strike takes everything that made the first two titles so great and adds new units, buildings, Commanding Officers and tactical powers (including the devestating Dual Strike) all of which combine to make AW: DS perhaps the greatest game of the series.
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.
Summary: I personally found this game quite challenging, but very fun in that regard.
There's plenty of stuff to be done, like unlocking medals upon attaining
certain achievements, so that means plenty of hours of gameplay. The art/design
and soundtrack of the game were very good as well, and adds a lot to the whole
setting of the game. If you get frustrated easily when losing a battle, then
this game is not for you, otherwise there's plenty for you to enjoy in
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! Graphics The game's visual presentation is good but it isn't among the best.
