    ¨Ð®.•Þ's Advance Wars 2:Black Hole Rising (GBA)

    [February 9, 2007 04:34:45 AM]
    While playing this game, I try and play with a very solidified strategy and tact, but sometimes you have to throw the rule book out, especially if you are somewhat impatient like me. I play a somewhat agressive style, impetuous, but quick. Sometimes I find that by making rash decisions and executing while I play can work out, but this type of play will either make you win really fast, or make you lose slowly and horribly. Theres nothing worst in this game than losing after playing for more than an hour. A lot of the times you believe that you have a fighting chance and you dont want to give up, but then eventually you start to see that the enemy has the upper hand. Its a very frustrating game if this happens, but it's an amazing game in the fact that you are about as happy when you win, as you are just as mad when you lose. It's definetly a game of emergence, because the graphical content, buttons, and turn based system make it very simplistic as far as logistics go, but the amount of thought and strategy going into it is limitless. A very addicting game, but it does lose it's fun and appeal about half-way through because it lacks a strong story line.

    Advance Wars 2 is an awesome continuation of the advance wars series, now continuing on the Nintendo DS platform. This is a strategy/RPG game, where you take the role of the new kid on the military block. The background story is that in this earth like world there are several rivaling nations, all unified, but different in their own way. The main enemy here is the Black Hole nation adn they are essentially trying to take over the world with their superior military might. The game is set up so you assume the roles of different generals from different nations, each pertaining to a specific color eg: blue green yellow etc. The gameplay is down right addicting, it's so in depth and chess-like that you want to keep playing and conquer. Basically, you usually start off worst off than your enemy as far as having fighters and equipment. This game is really detailed in that matter, I found that this was the most difficult part was trying to understand everything you can and can't have. Each player has to take turns to make their moves, which means planning ahead to a very extreme level. Sometimes a single game can take more than an hour, depending on the player.
