Great Strategy Game

Advance Wars Dual Strike is a great game. It has decent AI to battle against, and there are a ton of maps. You can earn experience points and choose which abilities you want to unlock (each ability allows for a bonus modifier to a particular stat if you turn that ability on for a game). You can also use credits that you earn for playing to unlock more people, more maps, harder difficulty levels, etc. Campaign mode is challenging, especially if you want to go for all the best ranks (S-ranks) for each battle. A new mode introduced this go around allows for an action game where you can choose a CO, and control a tank, infantry, or artillery in real time and go around blasting the enemy. It is a great way to blow off some steam in between a few of the longer battle maps. In all, this game should be a definite buy game (not just rent) for any strategy fan out there. Unfortunately, it is very hard to find (the sequel is out, but I like this version better). Rent it and you will see what I mean. It's a great game.

Extremely Fun and Highly Addictive Strategy Combat

This game improves upon everything that the GBA games had. Those games were great, of course, but this one was even better. And I can't tell you how addicted I was to it. There were missions that made me so angry because I'd have to replay them several times, but I could not take a break and come back later. I HAD to beat them.

Check this game out if you like strategy games like Fire Emblem (although this does not have RPG elements, I still believe any Fire Emblem fan would absolutely love it). Great characters, cool story, awesome vehicles. Rent it!

BEST DS GAME EVER

This is the best game I have ever played on the DS. It has everything that made the GBA games great, and the dual screen makes a nice addition. Sometimes you have two battlefields, but it never gets overwhelming. Perfect turn-based strategy game.
