Loved this game. Honestly, I couldn't understand the reviews. The patch fixed the main issue with it. I tend to think people wanted an Advance Wars, when they didn't get it they shat on this game. It sank without a trace.
Soundtrack is also fantastic if you love Command and Conquer/Advance Wars Days of Ruin style music. Loads of metal guitar.

Evidence from his own thread suggests he’s not actually owned one...
Anyhoo, as a man with a broken 3DS and an operational Switch, bring on the reassignment of projects! (GG’s character point is fair though, although it’s not just a handheld - that’s kind of the whole point.)
Fair! I do see it as more a replacement for the Wii U, mind: the Wii U software line died as soon as the Switch came out, and it's clearly an evolution of the off-telly concept they failed to master and communicate with the Wii U. Meanwhile the 3DS had a couple of belters after the Switch's release: Samus Returns and Ever Oasis certainly, and did Picross 3D 2 come out afterwards as well? Can't recall.
Anyway, I mostly play it as a handheld, and it's more technically impressive when treated as one, but playing the big games/local multiplayer on the telly is Where It's At.
