Every bit as great as previous entries
6 November 2013
Summary: I love the Advance Wars series and this one took a different approach to it. The story was more mature and the graphics were very dark compared to the lighthearted art style of previous entries. Despite being almost like a reboot of the franchise this is every bit as fantastic as the others. I highly recommend it!
Summary: This is another game in the series but it takes a little different turn. Graphics are different also and gameplay is a little bit darker but at the core of it, its still a great strategy game and I had fun playing it.
Summary: Ok, so I have heard a lot of people say they are flat stereotypes. But I say if it was the end of the world, I'd want to be with Lin, Brenner and the Doc. They all have their flaws but together they get stuff done. Its one big (strange) family. Also the bad guys are SOOO bad. Never have I despised someone more that Mayor... Unlike Advance Wars Dual Strike, "war" is a bad thing that Brenner's unit is trying to get away from. Trying to find a way home...
Summary: This entry is a lot more dark and grim than in previous titles, it's a good change of pace from the colorful, upbeat earlier Advance Wars games. Overall it's Advance Wars, few new units but for the most part its the same ole' formula. Which is a good thing.
Summary: If you liked Advance Wars Dual Strike, there is no reason you won't like Days of Ruin. Yes, the art style and story are a little more serious and maybe that change will off put some people but I had no problem with it. The gameplay remains spectacular the basics are the same from Days of Ruin, although they did reduce the number of total unit types, I assume to make the game more simple and streamlined.
Summary: Really, it was made for the US, this game was losing popularity in Japan so the developers decided to try a new scheme altogether. They chose elements the US could digest easier, recognize aesthetically. So here it is the product of all that, Days of Ruin. That said, I like a lot of what they did. Gone is the childish cartoony feel of the past games. They tried some more mature themes in the story which were welcomed, but the plot didn't impress me.
Summary: I bought this game ages ago, but it is the second Advance Wars game I've purchased (the first being Dual Strike). It has an interesting story, and the only thing I have against it is the inability to select your CO during the story mode. However, the cutscenes paint a wonderful post-apocalyptic war story that I've never seen the likes of before. It is a great game that I would recommend to fans of Advance Wars and turn-based strategy games in general.
Summary: This is an EXCELLENT title for the NDS. It has a great storyline. You must lead your Ragtag army through Apocalyptic wastelands and survive. It has heart stopping moments as well as humorous funny scenes. It has great graphics for such portable. It has great turn-based gaming system. It took me like a month and a half to complete it. It has a variety of new characters such as Will, Brenner, Caulder, Isabella, Forsyth, and many more.
