I'm trying to get all the medals in both the DS games and I'm going back to the 2 GBA games to finish any levels i didnt S rank.

How are the GB games and the SNES version? Theres even the NES version.

There are a few people who swear by GameBoy Wars. It did feature some unique things, like the hex grid and several unique units, which I guess makes it nice to check out. SFW is probably only fun to see the history behind this game, but I don't think it aged quite as well. Battles are very sluggish and maps are quite often of relatively poor design. I wouldn't even bother with the NES game, to be honest.

For all the history behind the Wars series, it's mainly the GBA and DS games that have that timeless quality about them which makes them the classics that they are today.

There are three series Nintendo needs to resurrect for me to start caring about it again. Metroid, Advance Wars, and F-Zero.

Don't play the NES game. It's genuinely bad.

The GB/GBC games are interesting, but have a really bad interface and are maybe worth playing once for novelty, but they're missing that something that the GBA/DS games have.

The SNES game is competent, but it's simple and has aged badly. Neat music though (and the origins of the much more pervasive CO system).

Super Famicom Wars is the only pre-AW Wars game that has a base damage chart similar to AW. But with simultaneous fire and 4+ bases on every map, combined with weak air units, it devolved to infantry+artillery spam.

thanks for the info.

I'll stick to the GBA and DS games.
Hopefully they bring back this amazing series.
