    By the way it has online play, as the boxart doesn't have the WiFi logo.

    I think it's basically (mechanics wise) AoE2 for the DS. I'll try this out later.

    And here I thought aToW was the only RTS on DS. How many years into the DS' life does it take for a retail RTS to come out? Nice to see its not shovelware though. Might consider it.

    This game is not an RTS, it's turn based. If you want an RTS try Robocalypse it's pretty good

    It's not bad, but considering how slow+dull TBS games can be, they tend to be pretty hit or miss with me toward whether I'll really invest time into playing them.

    The menus all suck for touch screen, so avoid them and stick to the Dpad and buttons.

    It's otherwise easy enough to jump into without much learning. I went straight into a skirmish, skipping the tutorial. I'd probably do much better if I cared enough to know more, but as-is it's possible to wing it. The menus are informative enough and the nothing about it is really obscure.

    It's mostly the same game as you usually see in these. Rock-paper-scissors units, resource gathering, upgrades, fog of war tends to be a pain in the arse. But there are wi-fi menus present, so you can't really go wrong with multiplayer. Why you would want to play this instead of something like Advance Wars, however, is not something I can perceive. And with the slower pacing than AW, I do question the success people will have really sitting down to play these longer matches.

    I thought the first one was pretty good, so I've been kind of looking forward to this one.

    You can fix it yourself with the Arm7 patch.

    I'll try to find you the link.

    I can confirm that AoE:M doesnt work on r4ds, the arm 7 patch doesnt help either


    edit: if anyone can give me a link to a version that works it would be greatly appreciated

    You tried YSmenu? I have yet to find a game that doesn't work with it once I converted my R4.

    Sweet AoE:AoK is easily one of my favourite games on DS, hope this is as good if not better.

    Works on M3 Simply after using Arm7 Fix.
    Will add to FC Database incase anyone wants schooling [​IMG]
