Advancing Through the Backlog

I have finished two games this month so far: Advance Wars: Dual Strike, and Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. Today I will write about Advance Wars: Dual Strike, and tomorrow I will write about Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords.

I actually finished Advance Wars: Dual Strike a week ago, on July the 1st, Canada Day. I would have blogged about it on that day, but Canada's birthday was of higher priority. My family and a few family friends went for a picnic near a lake as a celebration.

I completed the campaign at my friend's house, after the celebration. I had already finished much of the campaign and only had one mission left to accomplish.

Classic Advance Wars made more convenient with a second screen, more enjoyable with superior presentation, and made beefier with a selection of new COs and gameplay modes.

Definitely a great addition to the Advance Wars series; though I find more enjoyment in Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. Still, it was great to experience Advance Wars in it's old, cheery aesthetic. Those with a DS who still haven't played this game really should. It's fantastic.

Tag powers tend to be complete overkill though (especially Eagle+Sami combo - completely broken). Otherwise it's an excellent addition to the series.

Lol, yeah, Tag Powers are extremely broken. It's one of the reasons I prefer Days of Ruin, where the CO Powers are a lot more fair.
