Battalion Wars takes the popular turn-based startegy game, Advance Wars, and brings it to your GameCube. In this fast-paced, 3D, real-time combat game, it's the end of the 21st century and a global conflict has erupted between two superpowers. Their armies are at a standstill, weakened from years of constant battle -- when a despotic warlord makes his move. Weakened and frightened, the two largest superpowers call a truce and unite to face a new threat to them both. That's where you come in. You're an experienced commander leading men of both armies into battle. Can your small force use pluck and guile to overcome the forces of darkness, or will both nations fall under the boot heels of a madman?
