Too many games still rely on the sort of apocalyptic storyline found in the DS's Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. Apparently, meteors have destroyed most of humankind, and now you've been charged with leading armies of tanks, planes and sea vessels into foggy battles against rogue raiders bent on killing survivors.
The dialogue is trite, as when the evil Beast tells his men, "Listen up, roaches! We're low on supplies, so it's time to swarm a village! Take what ya want! Steal what ya want! Kill what ya want! Gwar har har!"
Days is a turn-based strategic title. When it's your turn, you send tanks and men across a map, like a board game, and let them duke it out with the baddies. Then it's the bad guys' turn. This could be good times if you're playing as a multiplayer, akin to Battleship but more complex. As a solo mission, though, it lacks real action, pretty visuals, good sound, a compelling plot and fun.
