Meteor storms, earthquakes and tidal waves devastate the Earth, causing 90 percent of the world's population to perish. The sky has been blocked out by ash, yielding little sunlight. In a world ravaged by a domino effect of catastrophic events, those lucky enough to survive are divided into warring factions fighting to drive the direction of a new civilization.

As the Commanding Officer of an army you must defeat the enemy army by either destroying all their units or taking over their HQ building, although dependant on the stage there could be further rules of victory. Each stage brings a new map and challenge, and as the CO of the army you will need to take control of your units and understand their strengths and weaknesses in order to attack the enemy efficiently.

Strategy fans will rejoice over the long-awaited inclusion of Wi-Fi play, which adds depth and re-playability. Use Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and battle against a friend halfway across the world, or use the map editor to create, trade and battle on your own custom maps.
  • More than 60 exciting single player missions
  • Within Story Mode players can play through an additional 38 trial stages - although independent of the Story Mode, the trial stages add much to the gameplay challenge and depth
  • New strategies also emerge by way of the Command one - for the first time, a Commanding Officer can enter one of the units, and by doing this, he or she creates a Command Zone
  • Create your own maps and share them with your friends or upload them to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection

 So addictive

I got this game because a mate told me it was decent, but its amazing, it is ever so addictive, once u start playing it u wont put it down for hours. The levels are well made and offer a wide varity, from battles on land with ur tanks and missile launchers, to the sea and air with ur jets and aircrat carriers. The level deisgner is really fun aswell u can build all sorts of thing, and have all sorts of terrain. To put it short its like having a full statergy game on ur pc in ur pocket that is very addictive. Highly recommended if u like statergy games. A+.

 Very Addictive

First had a go on this game on the weekend and I couldn't put it down. Its is a very nice and addictive turn base strategy game for the DS if you have long train/bus journeys to work this maybe ideal or if you going on holidays would be good to pass the time while laying on the beach as you do get totally immersed in the game.

The graphics aren't the best but hey it's a Nintendo DS not a PS3.

It has a little story running thorough it as well which is nice.

You can also play on Nintendo wifi with this game that's also a bonus

Dark Conflict moves away from the often far too cute story line of the previous games. It is war after all. Control and game mechanics remain mostly the same with some tweaks. The single player game features tutorials to take newbs through the learning curve. Its an enjoyable campaign and also unlocks COs for use on line or in one off games.

The units function as before, gone are the Neo Tanks but air craft carriers that can build planes are added along with bikes that act like fast infantry. That means they can capture buildings, but move slowly off road. APCs are now able to build temporary airports/docks which can facilitate repairs but are unable to build new units. These new units allow for some interesting new tactics.

Perhaps the biggest change is in the COs. Gone are the often too devastating dual strikes of the previous DS game and CO bonuses potentially giving ALL your units more powerful attacks/defence. Instead your CO is added to a unit (like a tank or plane) and adds certain bonuses to near by units. This change makes for a more tactical game, forcing you to carefully place your CO for maximum effect. It also means both sides are far more balanced so you have to out think your opponent rather than just come up with a the best CO powers and dual strike.

On the plus side it means you don't have to sit and watch as your whole army gets eaten by a dual strike. On the other hand I did quite enjoy the scheming that went on to get a proper brutal dual strike in but I think this is more satisfying.

The graphics are no better than before, though a zoom feature is included which I find of no use at all. Still it doesnt detract from the game.

A great addition to the series, go buy it.

 Yes it's even better then the excellent Dual Strike!

Advance Wars: Dark Conflict is like Command And Conquer with Chess mixed together. You have your troops, tanks, aeroplanes, battleships, helicopters and factorys for building more units. Altogether there are 26 different types of troops and transport you can build. When I say it is a bit like Chess it is because you have to take it in turns at moving your army. To begin with I found the game easy but as you progress you really do have to think about each move you make in order to win. Alongside Zelda and Mario Kart this is My next favourite DS game so far it's that good.

i own all the advance wars games gameboy etc, i think they are all great games that look simple & with graphics that dont look great but they have great depth & addictive game play once you understand how all the units work & how to use them to there full advantage.
with dark conflict its more user frendly less complex & it moves along at a faster pase, the new graphics are a nice change,& the map zoom is a nice touch.

good points: on line play with vioce , map down loads etc.
a nice change of visuals & new music style & some great new units.

bad points: a lot of the old co,s are missing.

i would highly recommend dark conflict if you were hooked on previous dule strike my score 9/10
