War is serious business 0

As a long time fan of the Advance Wars series, Days of Ruin comes off as kind of the bastard child of the series to me. It certainly doesn't look like your typical Advance Wars game, but after you play it for a bit you'll realize that its gameplay is so Advance Wars. This means that Days of Ruin is a solid strategy game that should appeal to fans of both the genre and the franchise, though the new look alone might not be enough to endear the game to newcomers.Most of the new vibe comes from the ...

Not Much Can Ruin These Days 0

While the “Advance Wars” (or, more appropriately, the “Wars”) series has been going on for quite some time (20 years in , 7 here in ), it hasn’t changed a whole lot over that time. Sure, new features, units, and gameplay elements have been added with every incarnation, generally making for a better game every time it appears, but the series has always maintained a certain level of “cuteness” factor.
