Advance Wars at heart but walks a little off the path set by predecessors

Tyler B, Amazon

  • Summary: Between this game and Advance Wars Dual Strike, I will say Dual Strike gets a slight edge. Dual Strike sticks extremely close to the original Advance Wars formula laid out from the prior two games on GBA. But that is not a bad thing, those are near-perfect portable strategy games.

  • Summary: Note for potential buyers: If you are buying this from Skyvo-Direct USA, you may receive Dark Conflict in lieu of Days of Ruin. They are essentially the same game, but Dark Conflict is the European version. Haven't found any issues playing it on my US 3DS, but keep that in mind.

  • Summary: Like most Advance Wars game it is a game about Good vs Evil. You are trying to stop the forces of evil by taking control of your army and attacking or defending the main Head Quarters.

Just a new storyline!

  • Summary: My review , Advance Wars : Days of Ruin , is it a good tactical game. It's not the best one but I like it. I liked the old one too. It's just like the old one but only new storyline. That's mine downside. The upside is the storyline is great , It's like the dinasaur age again.

Better than the last game in the series--and that's saying something

  • Summary: I recently finished the campaign mode for Advance Wars: Days of Ruin (about 25 missions long) and decided to pop in its predecessor, Advance Wars: Dual Strike, just to see how they compared.

A great game that makes you think, but it's not for everyone.

Anthony Simpson, Amazon

  • Summary: If you have played the previous Advanced Wars games, you may expect something like the previous games, anime based graphics, lots of bright colors, and lots of CO's. Well let me tell you that this is not the same as the previous games.

Excellent addition to the Advance Wars library

Jesse G. Lopez "anime freak", Amazon
11 September 2008
  • Summary: I love when people take risks. Advance Wars has done that with both iterations for the DS. It was quite a leap to completely remove the story from the past 3 games and also go with a completely different tone. This game is not the upbeat, happy-go-lucky joyride of the past 3.

Not Better, Not Worse, Just Different

  • Summary: the first thing you should know about this installment of the series, is that it is not the kiddy go-lucky advance wars you knew. the changes, whether for better or for worse is debatable.

Change of Pace

Yu-Jin Chia "Yu-Jin Chia", Amazon
11 July 2008
  • Summary: Advance Wars: Days of Ruin is the latest entry in the Advance Wars franchise. However, unlike the previous three titles (Advance Wars [GBA], AW: Black Hole Rising [GBA], and AW: Dual Strike [DS]) this game is set in a totally different universe.
