Advance Wars Dual Strike Screenshots

Just so there's a point of reference, here are some shots from Advance Wars Dual Strike.

What's striking to me is how little difference there was between this DS game and the preceding Gameboy Advance titles. True, the battle scenes zoomed in and out, which was cool, and the battlefields scrolled at a slight 3D angle. But most of the art assets from this game were left untouched. Ah, perhaps this was more of a rush job than we expected. That certainly would explain the overloading of extra gameplay features that never really helped all that much. Survival mode, anyone?

A very good game overall, even if it's largely riding on its namesake's coattails. It's become hard to find, which is unfortunate.
