  1. This games intricacies are well worth the reward. [Feb 2006, p.111]
  2. The presentation could have been a little cleaner, especially with the colored box units that are present throughout entire battles, and the forced combination of touch screen and button control could be a stumbling block for some players.
  3. The Nintendo DS shines and is probably the perfect piece of hardware for games of this type. The stylus and D-Pad compliment each other to allow players to quickly navigate the battlefield and switch between status screens.

    If you hate turn-based strategy and card collecting games, this probably isn't for you, no matter how big a fan of the series you are. But if you can keep an open mind, or if you really want to learn more of the Prince of Persia back story, this is a fun game that has a lot going for it.
  5. If you’re thirsting for something else after playing "Advance Wars: Dual Strike," this game will easily fill your tactical appetite.

Well, I admit I'mOkay, so let's grab an action game and make an estrategy game out of it. Makes perfect sense, yeah. Oh wait NO IT DOES NOT. Well, I admit I'm not kind to strategy games, but come on! It's like making a fighting game of a series of games based around puzzles. I can picture it: PROFESSOR LAYTON VS STREET FIGHTER 4 ULTRA RECHARGED LIMITED EDITION. Full Review »

    It's a very deep, well-thought out game. The only thing that lets it down is brain-dead AI. If they improved that, then I might have It's a very deep, well-thought out game. The only thing that lets it down is brain-dead AI. If they improved that, then I might have played through all the skirmish maps to unlock all the cards, and for fun. However, after beating the campaign, I was bored of the game because it was impossible to lose. Full Review »

    You can't really knock a game for trying to be creative. I think it's a nice change. Sure it could have been better, but with the You can't really knock a game for trying to be creative. I think it's a nice change. Sure it could have been better, but with the graphical limitations of the DS, what more could they really have done? A 3D game just wouldn't look nice. I thought this was a creative way to get around that. Full Review »
