Description official descriptions

The turn based strategy war continues. Choose your army and take to the streets to reclaim the world.

Troops, tanks, air and sea units are all available, at a cost. After each mission, you use your points earned to purchase new units and Commanding Officers, that add an additional level of power and experience for your army (whether it be greater strength, faster response times or stronger attack ability).

You can also create your own maps for Skirmish mode, and take on up to 4 players in a battle royal.

Advanced Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, is an awesome game!

The Good
I really love the way they created the characters; they made them stunningly realistic! Also, is has cool music. Not hard rock, but not soft soft; they found the happy medium! They did a very wonderful job creating the game; they added a lot of features to keep you playing for MONTHS! The features are: Normal Campaign; fight the black hole invasions; Hard Campaign; same thing but harder; Versus Mode; more maps, play your own; Map Creator; create your own map; War Room; fight for fun; Link Mode; I guess Link Mode is where you link with another SP; and Co Editor; where you edit the color of the clothes Co's where. Neat huh?

The Bad
I don't think there's anything wrong with AW2. It's just that the higher levels are really hard, but I guess that's not so bad.

The Bottom Line
Advanced Wars 2: Black Hole Rising is the sequel to Advanced Wars. All three games in the series, Advanced Wars, Advanced Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, and Advanced Wars: Dual Strike, are all strategy games. They are made up of both non-graphic mild/moderate animated violence, and puzzles, all at the same time! What I mean is, you have to know what your doing. You have to be able to plan, take things slowly, and don't do anything ridiculous. With many features, Advanced Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, will keep you playing for MONTHS!
