This is a complete reboot for the Advance Wars series. Forget all those cheery day-glo tanks, female officers in skirts no bigger than dental floss and the pantomime COs; they’re all gone, buried under several feet of dust and asphalt. All that remains is a barren wasteland, shorn of structure, rules and regulations, the survivors cowering in makeshift communities as impromptu gangs loot and pillage the land. This isn’t the Advance Wars you know and love- Intelligent Systems’ baby is all grown up, but retains the childlike charm that drew you to her in the first place.
