After all these years, do you think it would be enjoyable to play it without multiplayer?
I'm a fan of Etrian, DQ and Fire Emblem. Would i like it?
Thanks in advance.

Whether or not you'll like it I can't really decide for you. That's only for you to find out. What I can say, though, is that this game has enough single-player content to keep you occupied. It's only when compared to the extreme amount of single-player and bonus content that Dual Strike had, that this game seems to be lacking. Sure, the multiplayer content for this game was hands-down the best any Wars game has ever had, but that doesn't really mean the rest wasn't up to par.

All in all, it's probably not too expensive these days, so why not give it a shot?

If you could only buy one, between this and Dual Strike, which would you chose?

If you like Fire Emblem gameplay, I think you'll enjoy Advance Wars; they're both turn-based tactical games by Intelligent Systems. Fire Emblem is a RPG series while Advance Wars is not, of course, but there's enough overlap for me to be comfortable recommending AW.

If the servers were still up, I would suggest DoR if multiplayer interests you, but they aren't and the question is moot. I think Days of Ruin is overall superior in terms of gameplay, but Dual Strike has substantially more gameplay to offer.
I don't like this duchy. Now, it's an adventurer.

Did DoR require Nintendo servers for matching service, or could players play peer-to-peer?

The game had Nintendo Wifi Connection online multiplayer and used GameSpy for matchmaking, and went down when all the other Nintendo Wii/DS online services went down. The gameplay is entirely peer-to-peer though once a match started, like a huge majority of Nintendo games.

Aw. Does this also limit local games over WiFi?

Local games are entirely offline. Those are still playable. You can also all play taking turns with one DS.

You mean there aren't any exclusive cart-to-cart maps?

Nope. Never have been either. (Outside of uh, AWDS' Combat Mode).
