Advance Wars: Dual Strike (DS)
4 July 2013
Excerpt: Advance Wars: Dual Strike is the first Advance Wars game to arrive on Nintendo\'s DS console, and a direct sequel to the Game Boy Advance games, Advance Wars and Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising. With the defeat and death of Sturm, Von Bolt has taken over command of Black Hole, and he brought in some new henchmen to help him out.
Excerpt: This is the third Advance Wars game from Nintendo, and the first one on the Nintendo DS. How does it stack up? Pretty decent, with a few concerns. For those not aware of the Advance Wars series, it is a military turn based strategy game. Each of the units has a set amount of health point. Certain units are more powerful against certain other units. For example an anti-tank unit does extremely well against a tank unit.
Excerpt: As I played one of Nintendo's latest DS offerings I reminisced to a time when I was younger. This particular memory goes something like this: ...as I sat back in my chair, I looked at a friend of mine and said "that is one cool game". We had just finished a marathon effort in an attempt to finish it, but amazingly we were only halfway through. This game had a steep learning curve but once we got into it we just couldn't stop.
Excerpt: Think 'Nintendo'. Think 'handheld console'. Think 'sophisticated wargame'. Wait a second, there. It's not such a smooth progression of logic, is it? Sometimes, you have your expectations of a game utterly confounded and turned on their head. Being relatively new to this whole 'owning a handheld console' thing, I wasn't really sure what to expect when I cracked open the cellophane wrapping of the game box. Sure, I knew Advance Wars: Dual Strike was a turn-based strategy.
Conclusion: Well there you have it. I am finally done. Yes, the Advance Wars series is most definitely one of the best is the genre, and Dual Strike is not an exception. This game is amazing, with tons to do, play, and unlock. You will seriously have hundreds of hours of gameplay with this one. And, if it is like AW2, then once you beat Campaign mode, you get Hard Campaign mode, as if it wasn't difficult enough..
Excerpt: Have you ever fancied holding the fate of nations in your hands’ Many gamers have, but few are up to the challenge of stat-screens and long-winded rules based on obscure historical knowledge. And let’s face it, all that grey metal is very depressing. Thanks are due to Nintendo then for its excellent Wars series.
Excerpt: Hi there, for those
of you who don't know me I am generic filler. You may not know me
specifically but if you have watched TV shows, you have probably met my
extended family. I am only here until the real author of the review,
Megadeth, has access to a pc to write one. Until then, I’ll give my
opinions with some of those he has discussed with me in his absence. Dual Strike?
