Once picked up, it's hard to put it down.

User Rating: 9 | Advance Wars: Dual Strike DS
Advance Wars : Dual Strike was my first Advance Wars ever, and i have to say that i'm impressed with the amazing and fun gameplay in this game. I'm not very sure what improvements have been made since the previous Advance Wars games on the GBA though, since i've never played them before. Out of the 2 control schemes, i'd prefer using the stylus instead of my dpads to control this game. This game features units such as the infantries, mechs, tanks, APC, artilleries, helicopters, battleships, subs and many more. While battling, the top screen displays information about units, and the type of terrain the cursor is pointing to. The bottom screen is where the main action takes place, you use either your stylus or Dpads to control what is going on. To move a certain unit, all you have to do is tap on the unit once, and a box will appear, this box shows you the area your selected unit is able to move. You will have to guide your unit to the selected area by drawing a line with your stylus. The game also features different modes such as the War Room, where you battle the computer in order to get a high score. It has a versus mode where you can battle with your friends or a computer player. A survival mode, where you fight through a series of maps And lastly the Combat mode.. i haven't tried this one out yet. New players to the Advance Wars may have difficulty getting used to this game.
