    Not to say this game isn't good, because it is. I just don't think it's fair it get's all the love that it does. Why? Because nearly everything is ripped straight out of Fire Emblem. People think that Fire Emblem was ripped for Advanced Wars, because AW came out in 2001, while FE came out in 2004. However, FE still came first, because FE had been running strong in Japan since 1990.

  1. From trying to unlock every CO to buying all the War Room and Vs. maps to trying to earn the best rank possible, there are enough features in this game to make three games. Advance Wars is pretty much perfect in every category.
  2. For a handheld, the AI of your computer-controlled opponents is surprisingly diverse and complex.
  3. It's brilliant and fun turn-based strategy with more replay value than you could possibly ask for. This isn't boring turn-based strategy where you spend 15 turns setting up your troops to fight the inevitable battle, no sir.
