"Overall, Days of Ruin is a fitting sequel to the popular Advance Wars franchise. Adding in a much-demanded feature in multiplayer and a variety of new units while keeping balance solid is definitely not an easy task, but it was pulled off well. Pretty much, Days of Ruin does exactly what a sequel is supposed to do -- add said new features, add a bit more to the overall formula, but not make it unfamiliar to players. If you have been a fan of the series to date, you're not going to be disappointed with this follow-up. On that same note, though, nothing here is going to change the minds of those that dislike the series. And for those of you that have never played an Advance Wars game, Days of Ruin is probably the best way to get your start with the series."
