*Note* I got this on a coupon

This game when I first loaded it made my computer crash and have multiple errors afterwards. After that occurred, I did not hesitate to uninstall the game.

- 2 months later -

I had decided to reinstall the game. This time it actually didn't crash my computer! However, the AI had no idea what it was doing and made this game seem very unfinished to me. I never played again. Maybe some day the game will be blessed and be better, because this game has potential. Who knows when that day will come?

Overall Rating : 4/10

Recommendation : No

Reason: Has potential,but seems very unfinished

Very, Very disappointing. I was told before release that this game was made by the same guys that had created one of the all time best turn based strategy games ever in "Advanced wars" which was made for nintendo gameboy advance.
What we received was a beat down, generic, shallow game. Lacking any polish or interest, even from the very first tutorial stage you will realize how far backwards a game of such legend can come.
Graphics are stale, units are extremely limited and generic. Whilst it "may" keep some people entertained for a short period, i surely doubt it.

Do not buy.

Seriously, if the devs of this game put in some effort and released a modernised version of advanced wars, they would make millions. From the quirky commanders with special abilities to air and naval battles. The game was fantastic for the era. Please consider putting some effort into any future games.

It doesn't even have online multiplayer. I'm serious. I bought this game when it was on sale for a dollar for my friend and I, and when we tried to set up a multiplayer match it's gave us play by mail. Not even an option to set up our own server. I had to google "play by mail", because I had never heard the term, and found out that it was literally playing over mail. We were not going to work that hard for a ♥♥♥♥ game.

Garbage game. Multiplayer by email. This isn't the Advance Wars clone you're looking for, it's beyond terrible and an incompetent game at that. It is false advertising.

Do not consider.

You decided out of good reasons not to have a one-session online multiplayer mode. As in more complex maps, turns can take up to an hour, it just does not make sense to us. a Dev said,

This is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen. If we want to spend a couple hours in a game why not let us. I know it may not be for everyone but the option should still be there. Especially since the game claims to have online multiplayer. This is borderline false advertising. As even if you are passing your save back and forth you are still only playing single player. No real time play or competitiveness. And you have to use outside software. This ruins the game. The ignorance of the developers to assume this would be enough is just that, ignorant.
