Our Take
Each of the Advance Wars title is a classic, so it's great news to have it available on the Virtual Console. I'm not familiar with Genghis Khan II: Clan of the Grey Wolf, but that's what I like about the Virtual Console – it gives the well-known a chance to shine, and the obscure a chance to be re-discovered.
