Official story and features:

"Dark days are rising at the end of the 21st century. What started as a border spat between the Western Frontier and the Tundran Territories has snowballed into a terrifying global conflict one in which the armies have fought each other to a standstill. As their once-proud forces limp through the seemingly endless war, a despotic madman, Kaiser Vlad, seeks to take advantage of the stalemate and seize control of both nations.

The Kaiser is the former leader of Xylvania, which was annexed by the Western Frontier and Tundran Territories during their war. Deprived of his armies and thirsty for revenge, Vlad uses secret offshore accounts and unholy science to create a terrible army of super powerful, gas-breathing, Chemical Shock Troops.

When Vlad unleashes the warriors, it takes both superpowers by surprise. Weakened by their prolonged conflict and seemingly helpless against this new threat, the Frontier and Tundran armies form a desperate alliance in an attempt to repel the Kaiser. Can this new coalition use pluck and guile to overcome the forces of darkness, or will both nations fall under the boot heel of a madman?"
Story from Nintendo site


"- Command forces in the heat of battle, but beware. Clever enemy AI will adapt to every move.

- Hop behind the wheel of multiple attack vehicles: pilot jeeps, tanks, helicopters, airborne gunships, fighter jets, transport vehicles and more.

- Take the fight to foes with a massive arsenal of weapons such as rifles, bazookas, flamethrowers, machine guns, mortars, rocket launchers and many others.

- Want to station forces on a ridge? Send a scout team to spy on the enemy? Charge headlong into the breach? A single button press summons troops, while a second sends them off to fight. Posting sentries, driving vehicles and accessing the all-important battlefield map is easy and intuitive.

- Battalion Wars contains more than 20 unique missions, each with a number of sub-quests and goals. Once in a mission, players can complete it any way they choose."

This is a brilliant game. I would advise it for anyone. The fluid graphics and storyline are superb. 10/10
-- From mojo
This game is very fun! it is easy to get caught up in the plot and story line, as you play you will soon find yourself yelling at your battalion for getting wiped out! but then you remember "it's only a game." It's cool how you can be running from the battle, then charging into it in a tank next! I give Battalion Wars for Game Cube a "10 out of 10."
-- From R-DOG
Me again. I bought it and I passed it. This game is really good and the story is great except the end (cheap ending). When you pass one mission you have one score on 100% and if your global score of all missions is more that 85% you unlock a secret mission. The gameplay is nice but one thing: when your solder follows you, they won't attack enemies. They attack only when you don't move or if you order to attack. Global score: 8/10
-- From etienne
This game looks so good but I didn't play it. Just with the images, I give 8.5/10.
