Advance Wars review (GBA)

HonestGamers
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: For some time now, I've had in my possession a copy of Advance Wars, Nintendo's tactical Game Boy Advance title. I had heard of the franchise for years, as it originated (I believe) on the original NES. This is, however, the first time one in the franchise has made it to American shores. Spurred on by positive comments from others who had already made the financial plunge, I forked over the cash to add it to my personal collection.

Advance Wars review (GBA)

HonestGamers

  • Excerpt: Introduction: Strategy games have always been some of the most complex and addictive games on the market. Video-gaming wonders such as Final Fantasy Tactics and Starcraft kept me busy for months, finishing all the levels, finding all the secrets, and learning some really good strategies. When I heard of Advance Wars, a turn-based strategy game coming to GBA, I was interested. Interested to the point where I decided I'd buy the game shortly after its release.

  • Summary: Advance Wars is a deep and complex turn-based strategy game that places an emphasis on tactical intelligence over quick reflexes. In fact, games in the "Wars" series from Nintendo have appeared there on Game Boy and Super Famicom. Advance Wars is the first taste most North American gamers will have of the series, and the game is a virtual smorgasboard for strategy fans of all levels of ability.
  • Pros: 114 Battle Maps, Beautiful Organized Presentation, Addictive Single & Multi-Player Gameplay, Unlimited Mission Content & Replay Value
  • Cons: Music Slightly Lacking

  • Excerpt: Advance Wars has a fairly simple premise: The player is an advisor to a group of Commanding Officers for the Orange Star army, one of four competing nations in conflict with each other. After a series of missions in which the player learns the battle system while forcing the Blue Moon army out of Orange Star territory, you are allowed access to the Campaign mode, multiplayer battles and the War Room, where you can fight on a variety of battlefields.
  • Pros: Easy combat system to pick up, Graphics are clean and work great for the gameplay, Tons of modes, Great multiplayer
  • Cons: Some battles are easy because of hints dropped in story

  • Excerpt: If I were a complete recluse, and had never heard about Japan's best handheld strategy game - Advance Wars , I would still be able to easily deduce where it had come from by taking one look at the graphics. Starting with the opening movie sequence, and continuing all the way through to the end, Advance Wars uses the distinctive big head and eyes/no nose formula made popular in America by the Pokémon series.

  • Excerpt: Advance Wars is both my favorite strategy game and favorite portable game ever made. It is so incredibly simple at first yet so amazingly fun. It is a turn based strategy game involving cute characters. The object is to move your guys around the map and destroy the enemy guys, capture their bases, or some other similar objective.

Advance Wars – Review

GameCritics.com
19 September 2003
  • Excerpt: Advance Wars is a meld of two differing strategy genres. First are the turn-based strategy games, like Civilization . Second are the real-time strategy (RTS) games like Warcraft . Like both genres, Advance Wars centers on the production of military units and battling your enemies. Unlike the god-games, there is nothing to manage aside from military units, and even their production is extremely simple.

Advance Wars

Just RPG
29 August 2003
  • Excerpt: I had heard Advance Wars was a very enjoyable strategy game so I wanted to try it out for myself. I enjoyed the first 25 missions, then I saw a pattern, and that was the pattern of a strategy game getting monotonous, as many other strategy games have done. These include Warcraft 2 's expansion, Tetris Blast , and a few others. It's not that strategy games aren't cool, it's not that I am bad at them, I'm decent.
