Board game eh?
Ill be giving this one a miss.
I'd assume this is based on the real board game? Not the first Stratego adaption, if so. There was an unrelated PC one several years back.
I'm not sure if it's actually a board game or just based on one. Saw some screens for it on dsfanboy not long ago and it looked quite strategic lol, only saw top screen.
Stratego: Next Edition from Ubisoft is a take on the strategy game with a 10X10 board and a couple of players each with 40 tiles of varying ranks - General, Major, Captain, Scout etc. Tiles are red and blue-coloured on both sides, but the ranks are printed on one side only, and placed such that players are unable to identify opponent's specific pieces. Gamers are encouraged to arrange their tiles in any configuration on a designated section of the board. This kind of preparation is where the game gets its name from - your strategy is outlined even before the start of the game, and can have a bearing on the result.
Each player can move one tile at a time. If a tile is moved onto a square occupied by an opposing tile, their ranks are made known, and the inferior rank is removed from the board. If the tiles are the same, then both are removed from play. There are two immovable tiles - the Bomb and the Flag. If you land on it, the former will take out your tile, whatever its rank. Get to the Flag, and you have won the game. Alternatively, you can win the game by capturing so many of your opponent's tiles that they cannot move.
(All I could find! The top screens I saw before had an image of your unit and stats etc. can't find them now).
My only concern would be the AI. Can anyone comment?
So it's essentially ONE game from 42 all-time classics... (they called it 'Field tactics')
I'd get 42 all-time classics.
Is it that way? If so... I don't get why they released this.
I mean, ok, yea, money... cover may attract a few buyers, it seems to be part of a known license... yeah, I guess it's the same game with some other skin, just like many crappy platformers.
aaaaaaaa I used to love this game
board game or not I'm willing to give this a try, If you think about it Advance Wars is just a glorified board game and thats great. Not everything on 42 all-time classics is the best version of whatever it plays. Some of the games in it were downright weak and were easily beaten.
fune, lol @ your sig
Wow, I used to play this with my dad when I was like.. 5. Great fun, but I don't think the AI is smart enough for this game since it's all about unit management and planning traps.
For some reason, I could never really get into this game as a kid, and I'm not going to try to start now.
I love this game
Played the board game in the past
And even the Living Stratego at scouting
Where everybody gets a card and you have to find the other teams hidden flag
But when somebody sees you trying to search it and he comes to you you have to show your card and the person with the highest position gets the card and the person with the lower position had to go get a new card
Loved that game
Just tested game
It has three game modes
I remember playing this as a kid.. might give it a go.
this is a great representation of the boardgame. ai is very challenging. but, glad i didn't have to pay for this, unless it was a $9.95 budget title, it's not worth the money... may had been worth while if it was one part of those 4-5 boardgame packs we've seen before.
Does it support DS Download play and if so, is download play (and everythinge else) working with the R4?
decent little game
Finally, a board game adaptation that doesn't reek.
