This looks like it might have been a good game in the mid-nineties. The devs put a lot of detail in making the game seem like it was an old classic that had not aged well through the multiple ports, and the way they put in the auto-crash surprise complete with text dump really does make one sentimental for the old DOS days. But probably the most impressive example of their attention to detail has to be in the options panel. These sly characters purposely set the mouse scroll speed so fast it takes a true gamer to master the challenge of actually getting the option controls open. But there is a further easter egg, because you find there is NO SCROLL SPEED CONTROL! Now how perfect is that? Just exactly what you would expect of some 1995 game that came on both 3.5" and 6" floppys in the box!

tl;dr
These guys built a masterpiece of parody, even though they released it in 2010 you would never know. You would think it is much much older.

Pre-Release Review
It is not a good sign when the most recent news in more then half a year is an article link to a review of a game that is in a difference catagory, different country and even different decade that just happens to have the same name. No one proof read that first?

I was hoping for a decent Advanced Wars knock off but this game is sub par even with that expectation. The story is cringe worthy and I lost interest after the first few missions. Unless you are desperate for a title of this type then you should avoid it...or maybe go look at that other game in the new article.

*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

I had to email my save to my friend so he could take his turn. He then emailed the save back.
Really?
Might as well have been playing checkers in Notepad over the internet.

Tries to be Advance Wars. Fails on all fronts. Maybe someday a successor to the Nintendo hit will grace PC...but this isn't it.
