Too much missing from Days of Ruin?

Unbalanced CO powers and dual-screen battles aren't the only features dropped from Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. Modojo editor Justin Davis played through the turn-based strategy title and found the lack of packed-in extras disappointing:
  • No War Room
  • No unlockable hard campaign
  • No Battle Maps shop
  • No Survival mode
  • No Combat mode
  • No tags/rankings outside of the medals screen
  • Only 12 playable COs (compared to Dual Strike's 25+ COs)
Before you rush to our comments section to post, "No sale," note that Justin had a lot of positive things to say about Days of Ruin, claiming that its "strategic gameplay might be the best found in the franchise yet." He went on to laud the game's balance changes and improved Fog of War experience.

Also, the War Room hasn't completely disappeared, as you still have the option to play Versus maps, a collection of classic, new, and Trial Mission scenarios, minus the ranking at the end of the battle. And don't forget that you can download maps online! That almost makes up for all off the missing stuff ... Almost.
