  • Summary: Tom Clancy's EndWar for handhelds allows players to command an elite military force on the ground, in the air and on the seas during World War III. Take control of the elite U.S. Joint Strike Force, European Enforcers Corps or Russian Spetsnaz Guards Brigade and lead your faction to victory in three separate yet interwoven single-player campaigns. Each campaign includes over 30 battle scenarios taking place on real-world battlefields including Paris and London, and features increasingly challenging missions and objectives. Fight against a friend in tense two-player battles in any of the 100 ready-to-play scenarios or in your own custom-created missions. Turn-based strategy with a twist: Simultaneous move and attack phases make the experience as intense and authentic as real-time strategy. Three campaigns, one for each faction, with increasingly challenging battle scenarios and objectives. Over 20 units and vehicles per faction including ground, air and naval units. Units gain experience in combat, dramatically improving their combat performance. Two-player versus multiplayer mode, including additional missions specifically designed for multiplayer battles. Easy-to-pick-up mission editor: Create and share your custom battlefields and battle scenarios to play solo or against another player. [Ubisoft] Collapse

  1. This handheld version of Tom Clancy's EndWar offers a satisfying, tactical gaming experience.
  2. Aside from the plentiful missions, deep Map Editor and challenging opponent AI, the gameplay makes for some fun moments with your Stylus.
  3. Tom Clancy’s EndWar is a kind of a brainteaser and if you enjoy playing games like Advance Wars you will definitely like this one! Just moving your units through the field isn’t enough. You will have to use your brain to survive.
  4. Obviously inspired by Advance Wars, EndWar adds enough interesting elements of its own to make it worthy of consideration.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
