  1. It might be worth a rental if you're really into this type of game, but otherwise Advance Wars does everything that EndWar does, and does it a lot better. With that in mind, I see no real reason to buy this game.
  2. Tom Clancy’s EndWar on the Nintendo DS is a pretty good game if you enjoy turn based strategy, and it does have plenty of levels to keep you busy.
  3. Tom Clancy’s EndWar could’ve established itself as a must-own game had it done anything better or more stylishly than predecessors like Advance Wars. Instead, DS owners are given another RTS that brings nothing interesting to the table, and can get easily lost among the dozens of other games it shares so many similarities with.

    EndWar DS is a perfectly suitable turn-based strategy game, but there are too many better titles of this sort available on Nintendo's handheld. Advance Wars, Final Fantasy Tactics, and Disgaea all have better visuals and more unique gameplay.
  5. Nintendo Gamer
    Very playable. [Jan 2009, p.73]
  6. Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    Unless you're gagging for a handheld strategy game and have already played Nintendo's offering, it's not worth taking the risk. [Jan 2009, p.99]
  7. Obviously inspired by Advance Wars, EndWar adds enough interesting elements of its own to make it worthy of consideration.
  8. We can't help but come to the conclusion that while EndWar provides DS owners with an alternative turn-based strategy experience, it does not provide them with a better one. That's not to say it's not worth picking up. It's just that Advance Wars is still our preferred fodder when the handheld strategy cravings start to bite.
