Conclusion: Handhelds usually do not have a lot of strategy. Yes, RTS and TBS sometimes occur, but these are usually only a small addition to other games. However, it is worth sometimes to throw a look at them - Advance Wars is one of the best turn-based strategy for the Game Boy Advance is a very good title,...
Pros: Advance Wars is turn-based strategy, quite similar to Battle Isle series, where we are fighting with the enemy, and gaining buildings providing war funds.
Cons: The game has no disadvantages, unless you compare it with games from big platforms. Very small minuses are squares - I prefer hexes strategies from PC - and repeated battles animation. Sounds are average - but that's the charm of the GBA games.
Conclusion: This game is an easy to play strategy/war game that should be loads of fun for anyone. Without a doubt one of the best titles released so far for the Game Boy Advance.
Pros: Advance Wars is easily one of my more favorite Game Boy Advance games. The gameplay is fairly straightforward, albeit a bit simple, and can be picked up in a matter of minutes. This is one of the games that you start playing and don't stop playing it for hours on end; it's extremely addictive. Mu...
Cons: As I said, the overhead graphics aren't all too great, but the developers appeared to do all they could. The nature of the game itself is simplistic, but you could see that as an advantage or disadvantage, it all depends on your point of view.
Excerpt: Classic game, Now slightly old but still a brilliant classic. if you own a game boy you should defenitely have this in your collection. It is a strategy gaem, a bit like noughts and crosses except more complicated. You are given a selection of pieces such as tanks, rocket launchers, soldiers, etc.
Summary: A nice little game with nice little war simulations in lovely bright colours for the gameboy advance. The graphics are good, it sounds alright and the gameplay will keep you hooked for hours. Great for long journeys.
Summary: Advance wars is great. However, if you are used to pc style stratgy games this slightly different. First off the game has all the usual units you would expect ranging from infantry, tanks, artillery, air and sea power etc. Each unit has a certain attack, armour and movement rating.
Summary: Advance wars is a cartoony strategy game with many different modes of play including campain and vs. The campain is fun but feels abit repetitive after awhile. The graphics are bright and colourful. In vs mode you can play against 1-4 computer or human opponents.
Excerpt: *Sigh* Another war game, I thought. Then I saw the cartoony, anime graphics and thought I'd look into it a bit more. Hmm, it's a strategy game, I suppose it's worth a try. So I did. What an amazing game! There are no words to describe Advance Wars - it's just such a great game!
Pros: Crisp Graphics, Loong Game and Extremely Fun
Excerpt: Overview: You are a general (about 15yrs old?!) who controls an army from a top down 2D view and gets into a number of battles across your world. The plot is very simplistic with a twist in the tail that makes you feel a bit tired rather than more exited! (What?
Excerpt: When Nintendo attacks the wargame on Game Boy Advance, they are the fine strategists who applaud. Indeed Advance Wars proves astonishing manner at which point all the types of plays have their place on the small GBA.
Excerpt: I've always despised strategy games, in fact, I'm the last person you'll find looking through strategy games in a video games stores. But for some reason, Advance Wars lured me in. All the 10 out of 10's in magazines, glaring at me, saying "Buy me! Buy me!
