Pros Fun To Play, Good Value, Challenging
Cons Too Short
Recommended it? Yes

This game is great, and unlike many other portable games, you can keep playing this game over and over again, because it lets you create your own maps and play them agianst different CO's, although I do think that multiple CPU levels would have been a nice addition. Read full review »

Nintendo, through the years, has managed to create a slew of games that are easy to learn and addictive as can be. Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising easily fits in with the games that make us remember why we bothered to purchase any system manufactured by Nintendo in the first place. As odd as it...

Pros tons of replayability, strategy required, multiplayer, ability to buy and create new maps
Cons too challenging, could use better graphics
Recommended it? Yes

The Advance Wars games are highly strategic games. It is a turn-based game. This means it's like a chess game where a person moves once, then another person moves. Sounds boring, but it's tons of fun.

Absolutely entertaining strategy type game. It's very similar to playing a game of chess. Different units have different strengths and weaknesses. There are many levels of battle play with many layers of game play. It is quite easy to be defeated when first playing, but in time, your strategies can... Read full review »
