This game is awesome. The plot line is perfect. You against the alien leader, Sturm. All of the guys you destroyed are now on your team, such as Kanbei and Olaf. Plus Andy , Max, and Sami, the origanal COs. There are new guys to, such as Sensei, Colin, Hawke, Lash, and Adder. Plus new super CO powers, like Andy's is heal 5 instead of 2 plus there firepower is increased , and Max Blast makes Max's troops even better. Sami's Victory March lets you capture a city in one turn. Its great, tons of new stuff like the pipeline, the all powerful neotank and even a missle silo, which lets you attack anyone of your enemy's troops. Plus all the maps, and the design map ability make this an AWESOME game. I'm buying it the very sec it appears in stores on June 23, yeah, the 23rd, not the 26th like they say.

When I was in college in the early 90s, I played a game on a Mac called "Strategic Conquest." Since then, I have been desperate to find a similar game for any of my (non-Mac) platforms. When I learned about Advance Wars, I knew my search was over. Now, having played through Advance Wars, I knew I wanted ... more. And I found it in Advance Wars 2. In fact, Advance Wars was one of the main reasons I purchased the Game Boy Player for my Game Cube.
My wife doesn't get it, but there is something addictive about "Just one more turn, and I'll get 'em." I like the fact that you can stop and save anywhere on your turn, before or after you've moved a piece, and continue where you left off. If you think about it, it's also nice that you can save your campaign, allow a friend to play a map in the war room, and play a multi-player game, each independently saved without interfering with the other. I don't mean that you can play all three at the same time, just that three separate game formats can be saved.
Since others have talked about new features and the new NeoTank, and have done a great job, I'd like to offer suggestions for AW3, if ever it will come out. I'd like to be able to return to a scenario I've passed in Campaign mode. Be warned: if you complete the final battle on a continent before you've completed all the other battles, you cannot return to the other (nonfinished) battles. I feel that having to decide on trying for a better score versus continuing/finishing the Campaign has always led me to finish the campaign, sometimes ignoring the negative effect on my score, especially if it was a long, hard fought victory.
I buy a lot of puzzle and adventure games. I don't go for twitch, but rather strategy and more power.

Advance Wars was what I thought to be the best game made for GameBoy Advance until Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising came along and blew it out of the water. This game deserves much more than 5 stars. Don't listen to the advice the review titled: Science-Fiction + War Tactics = Blah has to give. For if you read it closely enough you'd realise that this person hasn't even bought the game! I quote: "after all the reviews and coverages I've read about this game the only new unit is the horrible neo-tank. That is why it deserves a 2." This statement is parshally true though because even though the Neo-tank is the only new unit in the game it is far from "horrible". Infact it's the best unit in the game and it looks quite cool. But there are many other aspects to this game which make it better than Advance Wars. I'll name them: the plot is much more interesting, theres many more levels, you get to be all of the new and old CO'S, theres a new building which is a Missle Silo (you can only fire each of them once though), you can buy maps much easierly, theres more data on your hands, and finally each CO has 2 powers a regular one and a Super one. (I think I may have missed a couple of new aspects to the game.) Well that sums it up hope this review helped you.

I usually hate strategy games. But one time i was at my friends house and we were really bored and i picked up his gba and advance wars 2 was inside. So i started playing it. I was hooked! i couldn't stop playing. Its npot extemely complicated like FF tactics and stuff like that. Its fun. Plus you can make your own map, buy new stuff, and theres a whole bunch of other awsome stuff that i havnt tried yet. But the campaighn mode alone is enough to give this gave a 5 out of 5. until then, game over.

Advance Wars 2 simply sticks out among other tactical games. Instead of fighting in a fantasy type world with magic and swords, you battle against tanks, troops, aircrafts, and submarines.
Options:
In Advance Wars 2, there are many options available at the menu screen. These options include, Story Mode, Versus Mode, and an area where you can create your own maps to play against the computer player with. You can link up your GBA and play against your friends as well.
Gameplay:
The gameplay seems quite complex at first, but it really is quite simple. You win a round by either eliminating all the enemies or capturing all of their buildings. During each turn, you can move any one of your allies once. You move them in the allotted space given to you. During your turn, you can attack and enemy, attempt to capture a building, approach and enemy, or simply run away. How you move your army around is pure tactics, but when you are complete, the enemy gets their turn against you.
Graphics:
The graphics in Advance Wars 2 are colorful and even detailed. When looking at the full map with the entire battalions lay out, it is full of color, but not too much detail. However, much like Fire Emblem, when there is a 1 on 1 combat between forces, they zoom into the battle for a much detailed and animated look.
Sound:
Also well done here. The music played though out is consistent and has more of a rock, (electric guitar) type music. It still fit the feel of this game quite well.
This game is highly addictive and a great addition to any GameBoy Advance collection.
If this game is of interest, check out these titles on the GBA as well:
Fire Emblem
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
Advance Wars
