Age of Excellent Strategy
While it's not often discussed, Age of Empires: Age of Kings has been one of the most well-regarded DS titles since its release in 2006. Unfortunately, like so many DS games that are highly praised, Age of Empires received less-than-stellar scores, even from outlets that touted it as a Game of the Month, and ended up with a metascore of 80%. Some of this was due to bugs that have been addressed, but the lack of online play also hurt the title.
But don't let that stop you from picking up a perfect complement to Advance Wars. Many have called it the same experience with added maturity, so if you love Advance Wars, this is the first stop you should make when looking for something similar. The best part? By now, it's totally cheap.
