Summary: Yes I know that sounds wrong, but in a game like battalion wars, you should just go with it. The super awesome combination of strategy and shooting is the strong-point of Nintendo's war franchise. My biggest complaint is the difficulty. The game is VERY hard, and it will take several replays of each mission to pass, and the game seems to ruin you too easily if you make a single inaccurate decision in combat.
Summary: This was a really fun game. the contols could get a little annoying at time. We love how you could actually control a troop instead of just only telling them what to do. It kinds of bothers us that you only could control one army unless you get te few bonus missions. we also like how each army in the game is supposed to be like a country in real life.
Summary: Finally, after years of owning a GameCube, a strategy game worth playing. Battalion wars is a joy to play, and I can think of no other game like it on the GC. It has it's drawbacks, but considering you can probably pick it up for cheap, its definitely worth your money. The game basically puts you in control of one unit in a battalion usually consisting on about 30 soldiers, tanks, and air vehicles.
Summary: Couldn't wait to play this game after hearing about it almost a year ago. Being such a fan of Advanced Wars on the Gameboy (and now DS), taking command of little tanks and soldiers was a great prospect. Then the news was that a different developer would be taking it on therefore a slight change in title name and brought both public and personal doubt whether they could deliver. Comparing the 2 games, you'll be hard to find any similarity.
