I finished Battalion Wars, for the Gamecube, the other night. It was an alright game. I might try the sequel when they consign it to the cheap crap bin. I preordered Battalion Wars when they first announced it. It was originally presented as being part of the Advance Wars series, which I love. When it was revealed that it was going to be real time tactics I was dissapointed, but decided to give it a chance. I played it once, for about 30 minutes, put it back in its box, and left it alone for 3 years. A lot of games I own have similar stories.
