The first in a long line of great GBA stategy games. 0

I actually received Advance Wars by chance on one Christmas. My aunt and uncle have a tendency of buying me random GBA games without knowing what they are, and I recieved this with less than enthusiastic response. I mean, really, how good can a GBA strategy game really be? The answer: really, really good.Advance Wars takes place in a world called Cosmo Land, and follows the story of 3 COs (basically generals) in the Orange Star Army, one of 5 opposing forces in a war that seemingly popped out of...

Hyper Repair! 0

I've always been a bit of a sucker for turn based strategy games so Advance Wars for the GBA was right up my alley. While it doesn't blow me away like it did when I first played it back when it was originally released, it remains just as addicting and fun as it was back in my middle school years. Advance Wars for the GBA is a Cartoonish Modern Day Turn Based Tactics game that pits the player in a battle of wits against opposing armies spanning a fictional continent. Combat is resolved through tu...
