    What? Dropping the old characters? REALISTIC MILITARY UNITS?

    I must admit I was a little disappointed with the DS version for essentially being the same but I still loved playing it. This however doesn't seem to make me happy much however. Wifi is a must.

    If it gets wi-fi this could be one of the best games for the DS. Turn based wi-fi could be a problem though [​IMG] . It looks good though [​IMG] . If they had the option for RTS, it would be even better IMO.

    Don't like the sound of it at all. I want cartoony graphics and old characters. [​IMG]

    I was expecting maybe cell-shaded battle animations or 3D maps and units, not a sudden turn towards "realism". It killed Settlers 4, it could kill AW2 too.

    It says "work title", though. Maybe in the end they'll rename it to "Platoon Battles: Decisive Strike" (notice the "DS" subtitle) or something and release it as a whole different game.

    Hopefully the god-awful dialogue will be scrapped along with the kiddy graphics.

    No more of this "Ha, I beat your army, now let's go for a hot dog and chill out while skateboarding and dropping phat beats, dude!" bullshit. [​IMG]

    And for the love of Shiggy, give me some friggin' Online Play! [​IMG]

    Yeah, read about it yesterday, and I couldn't be more excited. I understand the appeal of AWDS, and I'm a huge strategy fan, but I wasn't in love with the game. It didn't feel like a DS game to me; it felt like a GBA game. I'm looking forward to the second DS iteration much more.

    Considering that there was a Gamecube game called Battaltion Wars that was once called Advance Wars Under Fire which they had to change so it doesn't have any reference to the GBA/DS games, I wonder if they'll do the same.

    Oh and online. I can imagine it now.

    If the game is still good I don't care about realistic graphics or other characters!

    Hey, that's OK! ... I think. Just look at MegaMan Star Force. That's new, and 3D, too! [​IMG]

    Thank God that they changed it. The older ones are a joke when it comes to art style.

    Ha, I couldn't agree more.

    Honestly I got real sick of those special moves too. I'm using tactics to beat the other team, slowly chipping them down, surrounding them, all of a sudden HYPER FIGHT WAR SPECIAL MOVE FLASH!, poof! All my units have half their hit points. I rather try a more realistic approach and see how it goes.

    I think the mind control squid was a joke.

    That reminds me, what happened to that game that was like Advance Wars that's meant to be coming out for the DS but it has hexagonal grids instead of square ones?
