Turn-based battle advances with this sequel to the acclaimed GBA launch title. Like the original, Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising features a cast of amiable characters whose cute anime-style belies challenging, strategically complex gameplay. What at first may appear to be a cartoonish "kiddies version" of a PC hex-map war game is actually designed to offer the balance, sophistication, and options to hold the interest of even veteran grognards.
Many favorite characters from the original Advance Wars are back in Black Hole Rising. Andy returns to the battlefield, full of youthful exuberance. Sonja, Grit, and Sami reprise their roles as well. Even Nell is back, to offer guidance and encouragement along the way.
Sturm, the commander of the Black Hole Army, is threatening to invade Cosmo Land. Players must gather forces and protect the land from his assaults. Advance Wars 2 features new units as well as new Commanding Officer characters, along with their new CO powers. A Map Editor allows players to create their own battlefields. As in the original, gamers can also challenge their friends in both single- and multi-pak head-to-head battles. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
