i dont get people complaining about generic characters or storyline. to me these characters were a lot more interesting than the cartoony ones. Plus this actually had a plotline that was more than. good countires team up against the badguys

Oh! Come on people buy this great game!

I bought it at $20 at Toys R' Us with my new Dsi in April.

This is a GREAT GAME!!!

Actually it has some bad things like the GREAT FEATURE of the last AW : thedifferent types of strategy and powers of each CO. However the costum maps are great idea, and the ONLINE too!

So much hate on this game; but to each his own. I personally liked this very much.

I love the gameplay changes and focus on balance that this game has.

Too bad the characters are unmemorable and the story is unbelieveby generic and poorly told.

Good game, but I like the older ones better. I love this one only because of the Online battles and the Custom Maps with friends. Up to 50 Saved Maps! Finally! :D

The reason Intelligence Systems should never departed from what they do best.

How to ruin a fantastic franchise in three steps, by Intelligent Systems:
Step 1: Change all the awesome characters for boring ones.
Step 2: Break the perfectly tuned balance of the predecessor by removing key units and adding some that are either broken or useless
Step 3: Remove all the CO strategy by making all the COs the same and effectively killing the usefulness of the CO powers.

What a disappointment, still a barely decent game, but nowhere near the degree of masterpiece of the first three

7/10

I dont think it needs to sell a million copies to be a sucess. The game is great I'm really enjoying it unlike the crappy Battalion War games.
