Overall, this game has everything I want to see in RPGs, most of which I haven’t experienced in a long time: great pixel art, simple stories with fun gameplay, and plenty of replayability. This game is worth it simply due to the theoretically infinite levels to make or download. Plus, the nostalgic feeling of embarking on a simple journey to save the world while leading an army is enough for me to relax with on a weekend.

Without a doubt, due to its long duration and its tactical nature, Wargroove is an indispensable game for lovers of the genre, and for those who are not the same, they can discover a genre that they have not yet played. It has a main campaign around 20 hours, which can be more if you carry out the secondary missions, which will give you plenty of fun. The big downside is that it is one of those games that you either hate or love, almost without middle ground. In addition to a very misunderstood genre today, precisely for that reason its greatest advantage is its greatest defect, as there is little of this genre that makes you adore it even more.

For the fans of the admittedly niche genre of turn-based RPGs, Wargroove is quite a find considering its price and the amount of content it offers. If you have ever wanted to bask in nostalgia and step back into the waters of classic turn-based titles, Wargroove can offer you a trip back in time and a couple of dozen happy hours.

It looks simple, but it's actually deep! Wargroove is without doubt a great strategic role playing game that you should experience.

With a complex array of systems and mechanics, Wargroove is a deep and challenging strategy game, full of beautiful and colorful pixel art. The campaign, various multiplayer modes and other single-player options result in a huge content, making it one of the best independent games of the year.

It’s not a game in which every element is effective, especially for those who demand a powerful narrative, but Chucklefish has made something worth investigating for those thinking Nintendo has let Advance Wars sit around without a follow-up for too long.

If you like strategy games, you should without a doubt check out Wargroove. It takes the foundation that Advance Wars set so many years ago and expands upon it in new, exciting ways, topped with gorgeous pixel art and a good amount of charm. There's a ton of content here, and there's no shortage of user-generated content either. Wargroove is an incredibly robust package, and it's one that fans of the genre should not miss.

Wargroove is a great spiritual successor to the Advance Wars series and one I highly recommend to strategy game fans. It’s just a bit of a shame that this version released so long after the others and doesn’t have Cross-Play which can make finding online opponents difficult.

Wargroove definitely took a while to grow on me since it starts so slow but once it did, I was very happy with what is has to offer.
