5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful!!, 16 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: THE NAO OF BROWN (Hardcover)
This is a truly wonderful book, it has the most wonderful watercolour artwork and is consistently beautiful all the way through. But unlike many comics isn't let down by the story which is strange and lovely. i was truly entranced finished in one epic sitting and then had to re-read it and found a whole new layer of meanings visual clues etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturmovik in a tea cup- almost but not quite a great game, 8 Oct. 2009
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
I won't go over the territory of the first review as they cover all the main ground of this enjoyable game. The only grumble I would have is it's a little short. I'm new to this sort of flight sim combat genre and I have played the game "out" after 2-3 weeks (of mainly 1 hour in an evening play).
The game play is enjoyable and you can vary the "difficulty" of the game by limiting fuel/ammo and also by turning the feature that ensure all your bullets hit home. These features aside I think most gamers will race through the levels in short period of time. There is no option to play wirelessly/via wifi with other players which would have extended the games long-term appeal.
Please do understand I HAVE enjoyed the game and wouldn't want to put people off getting it but compared to some DS games the length of play (value for money?) is relatively short.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must for lovers of strategy action!, 28 Feb. 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I've had my old skool DS for a while now and apart from the odd social game of mario Kart and scrabble. It for several years was mainly occupied with playing the Advance wars series. I've never until recently found a game to match AW until that is reading about Panzer tactics. It took a while to track down, it doesn't seem to be in UK high street games shops so i snapped it up when I found it on Amazon.
Game play:
The basic game play is similar to AW but with advanced tweaks. The action is based in WWII as you would expect and you get to play as you progress a german, russian and american commanders in various semi authetic senarios.
If you're use to Aw the game play will be easy to pick up, the hex grid however can be fiddly at first and some of the menus took a while to master. The basic play is enjoyable and you are soom immersed in the micro movement of tanks and artillery. Unlike AW most senarios have the fog of war adding to the complexity and challenge. The challege level is steeper than AW, looking after your troops is more important it's not all earning money and throwing unlimited tanks at your enemy.
There's plenty of secondary goals to try and acheive and getting top marks on levels you are rewarded with hidden levels and weapons.
In conclusion:
This is excellent game ideal for lovers of turn-based strategy games particularly lovers of the AW series, well worth tracking down.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor game, 21 Sept. 2006
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Please don't whatever you do buy this game for Nintendo DS. It is full of faults and glitches. I was impressed with the previous game for GBA and pre-ordered the Star wars II game for my DS. I am halfway through it and have stopped playing not because it too hard or too simple but because it is full of bugs. Characters disappear mid scene, as does parts of the scenery, you enter scenes and they lock up and you have to reboot. Once you have unlocked a level and go back to play it in Freeplay mode whole rooms etc disappear.The point view camera is also very annoying sometimes it pans out to an angle that makes the game un-playable. I thought all this was my copy being faulty but I found lots of similar reviews on online forums. It is a real shame as underneath there is good game but it is made unplayable by being rushed to shops and poorly tested. So once again do not by this game
