5.0 out of 5 stars Advance Wars DS, the DS game of year! September 13, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Advance Wars DS is a portable strategy gamers' dream. With 8+ levels of unlockable skills requiring at least 8

hours per CO, the play time of this came could surpass 80 hours easily. Complicating matters would be the unlocked CO skill's

battling your unskilled CO later in the game. An example of the skills are receiving cash for destroyed enemy units,

reducing production costs for your CO by 5%, increased direct fire attack by 5% and a city fighter skill yielding 5% bonus

in cities. Up to four skills can be used at one time by one CO with at least 5 different skills per level.

Two CO's can now be used and switched while playing the game. Kanabei can be used to conduct ferocious attacks and

replaced the next turn with Colin to get cheaper unit production. Coupled with

the skills mentioned above you can customize your skills for power vs profit. After you have filled your CO power meter,

both CO's are filled, you can conduct simulataneous CO super powers to devastating effect on the battlefield.

Another option available in Versus Mode including Design Maps is four levels of AI. Defense, Assault, Normal and Strike.

The AI modes can become very challenging, increasing gameplay value for any given map.

A new History menu item is available in the game. History will provide a through overview of anything you have ever done

in the game with medals awarded for suprassing certain amounts. For example medals are given for XXXXX number of credits.

Multiplayer mode has been revamped with new trading options. Coupled with wireless capability of the DS, Advance Wars

DS will instantly become a classic around any public gaming setting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect way to kill time on long and short trips September 25, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a man in my late 30s who used to enjoy video games, but between work, going back to school, and children, I just don't have time for gaming any more. So it's been ~5 years since I tried any gaming system, much less a handheld (which I've always viewed as worthless from a gaming perspective). Recently, I had a long business trip, and friends recommended the Nintendo DS Lite and Advanced Wars: Dual Strike. I bought both on their recommendation and I can honestly say it is a truly fantastic experience. It made the trip fly by, I wasn't even interested in the movie or reading. It even worked great to defuse my frustration about having to wait for an hour in a slow-moving security line. In this review, I'll speak about the game, and will write a separate review for the system.

AW:DS is exactly what I was looking for. A solid, turn-based strategy/tactics game. The Campaign mode did an excellent job of teaching you how to play, introducing new elements over time. As seems to be the norm these days, many elements are not initially available but unlockable after accumulating a certain number of play points. This has the effect of hooking you even more -- you want to just unlock that one extra feature!

Detailed info about the game:

Units include air, naval, and land units in 6 different classes, including transports, units that specialize in attacking only certain types of targets, ranged units, cloaking units (subs + stealth aircraft), bombs, repair units, etc.. Each unit has common stats (vision, speed, range, health, attacks-vs-armor, attacks-vs-soft targets, mobility type, etc.) as well as unique capabilities (extra vision when stationed on mountains, can transport units, can repair, etc.).

5.0 out of 5 stars Advance Wars is a blast December 21, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Advance Wars series is the best handheld strategy series to date. Using a simple interface but complex tactics, Advance Wars has always been a game that the hardest of hardcore or the newest of newbies could pick up and enjoy. Nintendo and Intelligent Systems have managed to bring all of the strategic action to the Nintendo DS in the best way possible, Advance Wars: Dual Strike.

Advance Wars was great, but Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising took everything and made it better. Similarly, Dual Strike is basically AW2 with a lot of new stuff and a continuing story. The Black Hole army was defeated but once again they're trying to recover and gain power. It's up to the Allied Nations of Orange Star, Blue Moon, Yellow Comet, and Green Earth to rise against the Black Hole forces and silence them once and for all. New Commanding Officers come into play and mix up the story, but the old protagonist Andy has been replaced by an annoying new guy named Jake. Jake wouldn't be so bad if he wasn't an Orange version of your typical suburban wannabe...but that's a different story.

The gameplay remains largely intact, with the same turn-based stuff we've all played and loved for four years. Each side gets a turn and the battle cycles around until a headquarters location is captured or all units of one side are destroyed. There are 25 units (which includes six all-knew units) at your disposal, ranging from infantry units to stealth planes. Using different types of terrain for transportation and defense, the goal is to finish each battle with as much success and as few casualties as possible. Every once in a while during the campaign, players are forced to complete missions within a certain number of days or before a missile explodes overhead.
