  • Excerpt: is a turnbased strategy game centered around classic, realistic human warfare. Units include your direct combat units (Battle Copters, Infantry, Tanks) and indirect combat units (Rockets, Missles, Battleship). The difference between these units is in how they battle; direct combat units can battle anytime during the turn you use them in, and indirect units must fire before they are moved. There are units that cannot attack at all; APCs, Landers, and T-Copters.

  • Excerpt: The map tiles in Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising are very basic. There are perhaps only 10-12 different terrain tiles such as woods, mountains, hills, plains, etc. However, the battle animations are quite good. While it’s not the most graphically intensive GBA game produced, it still gets by and looks pretty good doing it. The one thing that seems to be done a good bit on GBA games is pushing the system too far.

  • Excerpt: After I graduated from high school, I spent the summer in Malaysia. It was my parent’s gift to me for completing the first leg of life’s race. I enjoyed every single minute of exploring a whole new place that some of the kids in American suburbia can’t even dream about. For those of you that are familiar with Southeast Asia, I’m willing to bet that you know about the monsoons that periodically fall into the heavily populated cites in the region.

Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising Review

  • Excerpt: Advance Wars 2, the sequel to the excellent Advance Wars improves on its forerunner in almost every way. Where it doesn't improve, it certainly doesn't degrade the experience. In fact, I'd go as far to say that Advance Wars 2 is the best game on the GBA. Best game on the GBA then, that's certainly a way to start a review and for you dear readers, I shall elaborate on why I feel so strongly about this game. It's all about the gameplay.

Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising – Review

15 March 2005
  • Excerpt: The original Advance Wars distinguished itself as one of the most complex and sophisticated titles on the Game Boy Advance (GBA) by bravely doing something few other carts have dared to do: it rewarded gamers for their intelligence and careful observation instead of their digital dexterity.

Portable Review
10 January 2005
  • Excerpt: Back in 2001 a game called Advance Wars debuted on the GBA. It was the first Turn Base Strategy game to hit the GBA. It did not receive hardly any hype, but it was receiving critical praise by many. Hell, it picked even picked up some awards. Well, 2 years after its release I heard on IGN that a new Advance Wars game was going to hit stores in June. Well, Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising hit stores in June of 2003 and I was a very happy man.
