Anyone else excited about this? Personally I have been looking forward to it since it was announced.

If you want more information then check out their site. And if you want to read some reviews, then check out Gameranking.

This game looks very good. Almost like a beefed up Advance Wars. I don't have a PSP, but this game looks great.

One PSP game I think looks really great is the new Ace Combat game that's just been announced. I've loved the Ace Combat series for the PS2, and the screens coming in for the PSP version look amazing.

So this is a turned based war game like AW! Nice!

I suck a RTS, but I like turn based even if people think it's slow

Im glad someone made a topic on this game.  ;)

Im going out the day its released to pick this one up. I've been looking foward to the game since i first heard about it in oct05.


For awhile a couple of years ago, Advance wars was the only game i played on my GBA, i was addicited to it. But FC looks to top it in every way, including gameplay with its FULL online support. I cant wait to take this baby online!


Plus, the map editor will allow us to create our own scenarios and play against eachother using them online!  ;D

It has online? Sweet. If they made an online Advance Wars, then that would just rule.

Yeah, along with the standard VS. mode, they have an Email option, in where you and an opponet get to mail eachother your turns, and then view them.


Kinda like the old chess days when you would mail eachother the moves.

I look forward to kicking all of your asses online ;)

The only thing about the online that disappoints me a little, is that it is only two players. But then again, I would rather have a finished two player mode, instead of a unbalanced and broken six or eight player mode.

A turn-based 6 or 8 player online game strategy game?


My god...the thought of the boredom that would come to mind when the other players were taking there turns...just mind boggling...  ;)




Im glad its 1v1, it gives you time to think about the next move, but also helps keep the action up.

Yeah your probably right.

Although I wan't really thinking of 6 or 8 players, more like 4. So 2 vs 2.

Looks pretty neat. But I wouldn't hammer a nail in AW's coffin just yet. There are many games that have attempted to topple Civilization but no one's done it yet because of the way it plays. AW is awesome because it plays so amazingly well; if this does in fact keep up with it, it should be pretty awesome.

Of course I'll never be able to play it.

Don't have a PSP.
