    ************'s Advance Wars: Days of Ruin (DS)

    [January 29, 2008 01:06:26 AM]
    Advance Wars Days of Ruin is a strategy combat game. The story takes place on a present day earthlike planet which has been hit by a meteor, thus ending civilization. The remaining peoples of this world with access to military resources, each have separate reason to take up arms and fight with one another despite the nearly hopeless living conditions. Others simply try to survive, while others still wish to bring about the glory of pre-apocalyptic times.

    The characters are mainly of a military background. Most wear battle fatigues or at least some form of military garb. Each is drawn as if they live in a ruined world, while they don’t necessarily wear tattered clothing, their appearance reflects a world where survival comes first and appearance second. Each character has a different personality which is reflected in his/her appearance. One of the main protagonists Will has a youthful green appearance, and acts accordingly naive.

    The cast of characters interact in various ways, although typically characters on the same side of a conflict agree with one another in terms of what they’re fight for, although differing personalities present sub conflicts between allied characters. For example, in one battle a commanding officer prevents the use of certain troops because he has a personal dislike of the ground commander.

    Gameplay is turn based with each force taking a turn to move each of its units. A day is ended after each side has moved the troops it wishes to move. The battlefields are represented by grids with a unit occupying a single space of the grid. Units in cardinal adjacent grids are allowed to attack, with each unit type having a specific strengths and weaknesses. Foot soldiers can’t be expected to stand up well to tanks, just as tanks cannot shoot at planes. Combat continues in this manner until a preset objective is met or a particular side has their headquarters captured or is completely eradicated. If the players side wins then the story advances.

    ************'s opinion and rating for this game

    Follows classic Wars series gameplay. However the darker tone sets it a bit apart from the other series.
