A game that will please everyone.,
This review is from: Advance Wars: Dual Strike (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
This is my first Advance Wars game, and not my type of game at all, I hated Command & Conquer, which this is similar to in many ways. The tutorial missions at the start are pretty uninformative, and the complexitities of CO's, Co's abilities, terrains, vehicle attributes and vision ranges are things that make my balls ache and my eyes water. But after playing most of the top titles for the ds, this is the game I am still playing, and still loving.
There's tons to do in this game. A long campaign mode, and lot's of bits and bobs to get plenty of gameplay from. The real beauty of this game however is the depth and variety in gameplay. Once you begin to understand how various CO's and their abilities work, you really get to feel there's a lot more you can achieve. Even if you can't be bothered learning, the instant playability of this game is fun enough to keep you playing until you get it.
I would recommend this game to everyone. There aren't many games on the ds that can appeal to everyone, and even fewer that will last a while. I've never played a strategy game that I could tolerate before, but if this game can win me over, I'm sure you'll love it too.
