"Advance Wars: Days of Ruin is an unusual mix of the good and the bad. The more mature storyline, revamped unit list and redesigned CO system are all quite positive, and online play is something that Advance Wars has needed for a long time. Unfortunately, these good points are countered by the poorly designed COs themselves, the wacky unit balance, and the lackluster number of single-player offerings, which mean that unless you really enjoy playing Advance Wars online, Days of Ruin isn't going to have much appeal for you beyond a single playthrough. However, if the concept of waging pint-sized war on your Internet friends sounds great, then Advance Wars: Days of Ruin may be just what you're looking for… assuming you don't end up facing the same CO in every round."
