Dual Strike isn't much of a strategy game, and they really should avoid over-the-top CO powers in the next release.
It's really too bad Days of Ruin was received so poorly, because it's easily the best in the series in terms of unit balance, multiplayer, and music. Probably one of my favorite games actually. I'd love to see another game in that style.
I agree man, DoR/DC was amazingly well balanced, I loved it. The art style is fine, I liked it, but I understand others not liking it. But DS/DoR gameplay style was the business.
I say that FE actually has more strategy. Ever played FE Shadow Dragon online against another person? 6 fully leveled characters, that's it. It's a glorified predeployed game. AW has far more PvP strategy in that you start with nothing.
Dual Strike isn't much of a strategy game, and they really should avoid over-the-top CO powers in the next release. The people over at WWN (warsworldnews.com) came up with a Dual Strike metagame. The PvP environment itself is OK except that the unit homogeneity is at an extreme. One could get away with building 70% infantry. In Days of Ruin, 12 of the 20 non-sea units see substantial play.
It's really too bad Days of Ruin was received so poorly Days of Ruin actually sold better than Dual Strike.
