I'd really like to have a good Advance Wars clone available on Steam, but this isn't it. The clunky, ugly 3D graphics are a huge step back compared to the clear and functional 2D graphics of the original, and it's far less intuitive to grasp the relative strengths and weaknesses of the units because they're not called "infantry" or "tanks" or the like. In short, it's an incompetent clone of a great game.

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.

Multiplayer means turn-based play-by-email or hot seat.

Just a bad rip off of Advanced wars, the game is way to easy the only mission that is actully a challenge you get stopped halfway through.

Future Wars < Advance Wars

(seriously, the rest of this is just going to explain that point)

I enjoy the genre that this game is. I mean... is trying to be. The problem is, this game has nothing original in it. Its a copy paste of Advance Wars for the Gameboy Advance... except even more dull. Now before you get harsh on me, I actually ...kinda... like this game. Ive played it, I have tried to enjoy it. I have had people comment on why I enjoy self torture for playing it. So, I have given it a chance.

Problem 1: This game is a multiplayer turn based strategy where the single player slowly teaches you in 16 missions how to play multiplayer. ...There is no real multiplayer to play.. Also, I could probably teach you how to play in like 4 missions.. maybe if I am going slow. For those of us who have the game and have played the genre, we knew by mission 4 or whatever how to use indirect units.. we knew they couldn't move and attack the same turn, we didnt need 2 missions for the different ranges of indirect units.

Problem 2: THIS GAME IS BORING AND SLOW. I have spent hours, playing 1 single mission because the AI refuses to die even when I have 30 tanks and it has maybe 2. Everything has a damage cap of like 35% damage. I could drop a nuke (not actually in this game, but if it was it would suck) and it would do ..meh, on a good day, 50% damage. So if both sides have plenty of units (which all need selected, moved, and attacked with every single turn) it takes.. forever. I turned off the enemy turn animations and the game still takes hours. Its insane.

Problem 3: There is nothing in this game. Imagine a chess game with only pawns. Oh, you can get big pawns and cool looking pawns, but there are no queens or bishops. Wouldn't that be a boring game of chess that you'd be like "man, lets go play a real chess match" ..long story short and to cut the metaphor.. thats this game.

TL:DR - don't bother, this game sucks. ..and its sad too, because I would love to see this type of game done well.
