And I am glad to announce that what Advance Wars fanatics have known for years is all true, the GBA games are as fun and must haves for both GBA and DS owners as the latter games are must haves for DS owners!
The original Advance Wars still has the same great gameplay of the original, with most of the bells and whistles that started it all off. Of course less Image 1 of 5. Click to enlarge

Storymode you’re in control of one of the four Lucky Charms of war (Orange Stars, Blue Moons, Green Earths and Yellow… somethings). You get right down to the dirty of it and learn the basics of warfare here (but if you need more learning of the basics if this is your first tour of duty with Advance Wars there’s a tutorial section to sink your teeth into here as well).
There’s of course all the boards to play in the War Room (which you can purchase from the shop as you play the story mode and rack up points to buy said boards). These boards should all be familiar to you, if you played Dual Strike, since a lot of them made it into that version of the game. Now I don’t know if there’s any Image 2 of 5. Click to enlarge

The gameplay is addictive as always, and quick to learn (you should be able to pick this up fast out of the box or whatever it’s stored in when you buy it) making for a quick immersion into total warfare fun! There is multiplayer but unless you own one of these little GBA gizmos like the Majesco Wireless Link (which you constantly have to be careful of as the antenna is easily prone to bending and possible breakage) you’re primarily going to focus on the single player mode.

Advance Wars (the original that started it all) gets the score that it rightfully deserves, a 5 out of 5. If you can find it, find it. Play it. Enjoy it.
Is it me or did I just do a Benjamin Button and play the entire Silent Hill trilogy backwards? My first review, on the PS2, was Silent Hill 4 : The Room... then backwards to Silent Hill 3 on the PS2.....
