Just a new storyline!

R-K-O , GameStop

  • 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.

Change of Pace

  • 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.

Initial disappointment, but I got over it

  • Summary: At first, I hated this game completely. But after a while, I grew to like it. First, I'll explain the bad parts. They got rid of ALL the old COs and powers of the previous game. There is now only one generic CO power (still varies from CO to CO); no Super Power.

Great addition

Aris E. Blevins, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been a fan of Advance Wars for a bit now, and thought Dual Strike was a fantastic game. Days of Ruin is better. Having integrated story and training missions is a fantastic addition, and makes the single player mode feel really deep. I also find the story and characters more compelling.

Awesome game, story

Raj, Amazon

  • Summary: The game is a bit more complex now, but still pretty simple (for a strategic wargame). The story is gritty, and much more realistic. The stupid "bombers stopped by pipeline" idiocy is gone. The mechanics of the game are more realistic, balanced and dynamic.

Best strategy game on the DS so far

Roland, Amazon
7 May 2008
  • Summary: DoR is a traditional turn-based strategy game set in post apocalyptic future. The game has a lengthy single player campaign (15+ hours, depends how good you are) and a versatile map editor.

Addictive and challenging

Marcus B. Seiser, Amazon
7 May 2008
  • Summary: This game is tactically challenging, requiring use of terrain and the right units to defeat the enemy, rather than building a massive amount of tanks and charging across the battlefield.

The Best Just Got... Not Quite as Good

David Swan, Amazon
7 May 2008
  • Summary: In an earlier review I declared the Advanced Wars the best games ever for the GBA and Dual Strike met or exceeded everything the previous two achieved. So Days of Ruin had a lot to live up to and.... didn't. Let me start with what I didn't like.

It's one of the best Advance Wars games and definitely the last on the portable consoles.

  • Summary: One thing they got right was more unit types. Unfortunately, some of these new units are simply too strong and therefore too hard to beat, rather than being special in another unique way.

you will be embarressed to admit that it is your favorite game

Digit86, Amazon
7 May 2008
  • Summary: This was my first experience with the Advance Wars series. it is a great and solid game with very few flaws. the story mode is fun, lengthy, and full of battles that border on ridiculously one sided. where the games really excells at, is the free mode.
