I purchased the original Advance Wars on the GBA and it was fun, but even for me a veteran tactictian I found it abit challenging. I tried and tired and keep getting stcuk on certain levels. This game is not as hard but still keeps players entertained with its level of difficulty. The graphics are okay, but then again nothing on the DS is note worthy. This game has one thing I can not STAND in a game alot of reading. If your not a fan of reading then this game is not for you. you need to read in order to know the maps tactical approach even skipping over one reading section could cost you a valuble hint. Overall the game is fun, and last a long time, the graphics are good, and the sounds are a fun upbeat dance style. I would recommend this game to anyone that is a fan of Final Fantasy Tactic or other tactical games, only don't worry about getting attached to your men, in this game they come and go.
