A good proper wargame for the DS!,
This review is from: Military History Commander: Europe at War (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I have owned a DS lite now for a couple of years, and love playing such games as Age Of Kings, and Age Of Mythology on it. I also have Scrabble, and Animal Crossing to let you see what kind of gamer I am. I love the slow burn strategy games.
This is a gem. How the programmers have squeezed all this gaming joy into such a small cartridge is beyond me.
The DS version is single player only. You can play as Axis or Allies. All the usual unit types are there, such as garrison, mechanised infantry, armour, fighter aircraft, submarines, and more. You also have research to play with, which adds to the strength and effectiveness of units.
The AI appears to be pretty good, and the DS screens are used to their limit. One problem is that those with failing eyesight may find the letters and symbols a little difficult to read. So get a DSi instead - the screen is bigger!
I am really anjoying this. An excellent hexmap wwargame with all the boring "paperwork" handled by the machine, leaving you free to conecentrate on the GAME.
