Europe likes Advance Wars.

That's a fact, look it up.
Not a winner anymore.

Hope it lives up to the last AW's legacy.
Online play needs to happen.

So I hear they got rid of the anime inspired theme for a gritty realistic version because AW: DS didn't sell well.

I kind of liked the old art style, the new one blends in with other games too much.

Oh well, it's on my Gamefly Q.

double post but whatever

i got the game and its...awsome

the story is not that great imo...but the art is really cool and the missions are chalanging

all the old co`s are dead but the new ones are cool and all the theme songs are good to

it has online so thats a big plus..but most of the chalange modes are gone...like war room and stuff...
you can still make your own maps though...and they made allot of multiplayer maps...the shop is gone though...so most of it you unlock in the campain

i think the story is WAY better than in dual strike. we have seen it all in that one. DoR is new, refreshing and addicting. there are some new interesting units, as well as new functions for others. like the apc is able to build temporary airports and harbors. to let those units refuel as well.

and repair :D

and i love, love, LOVE the carrier! you can now build seaplanes on and those are pretty strong :D they are now actualy worht the 28000$

the story did get allot better after like the 10th mission but in the begining its kinda dull

the co`s are fantastic and there theme songs completely beat the old songs

they left allot out of the game but its actualy improved

oh and btw you can save 50! home desinged maps! in the old AW games you could only have 3
you can download and upload them via wi-fi but those cant be larger than 10X10  :-\
 
we should do multiplayer sometimes  ;D

gowd i still remember the moment i opened the design maps option. i almost crapped my pants seeing those 50 (!) open spaces for maps! :P

and i love the more "adult" feel of the graphics!

and the flare tank is the most efficient infantry killer i've seen in my whole AW career. Whoopah!

yeah we really should do multiplayer sometime.

The game is still anime and AWDS sold decently.

The game sounds great. Although I got AW2 on GBA and am Happy with that. I never finished the story I just played the war room maps. Got plenty of fun out of that. Still the way you are enjoying this game it sounds tempting.

This game is getting a solid buzz and I'm looking forward to it. However, considering the huge backlog of games I'm sitting on I'm going to wait a while, unless I can find it for a great sale price.

i finaly beat mission 14 and now i figured how co`s work

its allot difrent now...when you put them in a vechicle they form an area around them where attack and defence is enhanced (depends on co how much) and all the damage dealt by the units inside that area fill up the co power

the co powers are allot stronger now btw...but also allot harder to get

but its cool to have some kind of 'general unit'
it ads allot more strategy

I actually recommend calling the Nintendo help line I have had nothing but good experiences when dealing with them especially when trying to get my DS online.

i played online with cruithne yesterday

it was really cool...there are no limitations on online play

you can voice chat, choose every map, have npc`s,make teams and whatever you can do in an ofline match

we where both on 1 team against 2 npc`s  ;D

cruithne had a hard time keeping the npc`s out of his base and i didnt really have the recources to help him...i mean i send a couple of units but it was not really much...

anyway after a while i filled the enemy beach with tons of giant tanks while i barraged them with battleships and my carrier(got to love that)
so i kept sending in units on the beach and i was about to beat one of the npc`s but then i had to go upstairs and the connection broke...

kinda sucky way to end but it was fun anyway

Hey Celdur, how's it going?

Yeah, it was fun playing as a team, but I felt like such a noob that you had to send guys over to help, plus, I felt the game went on too long, I've played two player maps and they're quick and short, with the game over in a set number of turns and the game calculating who won.
I'm still amazed that the voice chat works so well, who woulda thunk it?

Anyhoo, I'm going to practice a bit before before I drag another poor sucker down by teaming up with them and causing them to be constantly trying to haul my ass out of the fire, well played man, you're a pro.
