Advance Wars: Days of Ruin review

  • Endlessly fun
  • Tuned and polished to perfection
  • Multiplayer with voice chat
  • Simpler than previous entries
  • Music ain't great
  • Will make you forget other games

On top of that, there’s a quite brilliant system that rewards kills with a unit upgrade, encouraging you to take better care of your troops. On top of that is the cherry on top of a cherry on top of a cherry cake: Wi-Fi play complemented with voice chat and - and! - a level editor to complement the 150-odd playable maps. Days of Ruin is the complete package of the perfect game and a total must-buy.

    This is no doubt the best of the series. It is the most realistic, and extemely addictive. Just with the storyline alone will suck you in till you never want to put it down. If you own a DS, this is a game you MUST buy. Believe me when I say, this game is worth every penny. Even after the awsome storymode is done, thre are still tons of maps, online play and the map editor to sink your teeth into. This game is so fun and addictive, that you might just cry when you pt it down.

    well, I guess this one is going on my list, with Chrono trigger and GTA china town wars.
