Okay, I've read reviews about this game series and seen some gameplay footage of it, so I gave this series a try. I started out with Days of Ruin, but unfortunately that game was too difficult for me. I was just wondering if the other Advanced Wars games were any easier.
I'd say Advance Wars 2 and Advance Wars DS are the easier ones of the lot. The original Advance Wars definitely classifies as being the hardest by far. --- http://www.warsworldnews.com | Advance Wars website and community Visit our IRC channel: http://embed.mibbit.com/?server=cthulhu.arg-irc.net&channel=%23wwn
The first Advance Wars is on par with Days of Ruin, it is the least complex, certainly less so than Days of Ruin. It does however have a very very good tutorial that explains everything in-depth.
Advance Wars Dual Strike I'd say is the easiest of the series. It certainly features the most gamebreakingly overpowered combinations and tricks. --- Victory favors neither the righteous nor the wicked, it favors the prepared.
