Showing 1-10 of 28
A very decent addition to the series.
20 January 2011
Summary: Pros: I just bought this recently after not having played an Advance Wars title in a while. Its surprisingly good. There are a few new things, including battles that take place on two screens and the ability to use two CO's at once. There are also a few new environment tiles, units, and maps as one would expect. The AI is a little smarter, which is nice since VS. Battles against the CPU in previous titles tended to be pretty easy wins for me.
Summary: If you liked Advance Wars on Gameboy Advance, then you'll love it on the DS. Same addicting gameplay now with wireless multiplayer with one or two cartridges thanks to the DS and its wifi. The only thing keeping it from getting 5 stars is that there isn't much of a difference between this and the older games except that now you can see stats or a map on the upper screen instead of having to press start or whatever.
Summary: I don't want this to be a review to discourage you to buy it. I want it to make you buy it. The Advance Wars series (3 games in all so far) was a turn based strategy game in which you have to either blow up the enemy or capture the enemy HQ. You get money by having buildings(You can capture more to get more money) and you can build from bases,airports,and ports.
Advance Wars makes the jump from the GBA to the DS and still delivers lots of advance fun.

Summary: Pros: * The combat system is similar to previous AW games but adds more depth. * Still fun but also adds a bit of grit to the storyline. * There are new classes of vehicles, ships and aircraft. * Battle fields are sometimes split into two simultaneous fronts, where victory on one front plays a big role on how the second front will go. * Lots of content to play in the war room section after finishing the main campaign.
Summary: Having played the previous Advanced Wars titles, I was impressed with this game. Having feared that many of the new features in the game would detract from the strategy aspect, I realised once playing that this was the same old advanced wars. People who are new to the series will find it easy to pick up: the tutorial is in my opinion more to the point than the previous games, veterans of the previous games will jump straight into the action with ease.
Conclusion: A very entertaining and fun game. It has customization features for your COs and also the ability to build your own maps. The game play is easy to pick up but the game does need some tactical ability. The units are very much top trumps (This beats that but will be beaten buy that) You have two types of attack units (Direct and in-direct) Also you have ground, air and naval forces.
A very good game but the sequel Dark Conflict is better!

Conclusion: Advance Wars: Dual Strike is yet another great game by Nintendo. The graphics are more bright and cartoon looking then Dark Conflict. It is a simple but very complex game to play and, is like a super advance chess game in the way that you play. You have lots of different units to control and this was the best game of it's type untill the sequel come along which is better in every way. Thats the only reason why I gave Dual Strike four stars and not five.
