I'd recommend Advanced Wars everytime, but in this case, Dual Strike has some rather unbalanced CO skills, so it can make things more frustrating. Basically, if you're an Advanced Wars Beginner, I'd suggest you stay away from it. As for Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, it's good if you're a beginniner. The story isn't very important, and the tutorial at the beginning does a great job of teaching you how to play the game, better than any other Fire Emblem, in fact. If you're a Fire Emblem veteran, though, the crumby story and ease of difficulty will likely put you off.

As for RPGs, if you're just looking for DS RPGs, I can recommend these:

The Dark Spire
Disgaea DS
Dragon Quest IV
Dragon Quest V
Dragon Quest IX
Etrian Odyssey III
Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light
Final Fantasy Tactics A2: The Grimoire of the Rift
Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days
Lunar Knights
Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
Mystery Dungeon: Shiren The Wanderer
Nostalgia
Phantasy Star Zero
Radiant Historia
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey

I highly recommend The world ends with you for DS RPGs. IMO its the best game on the console.

I was thinking of importing Sands of destruction but after reading more about it, I'm not sure if it will be worth it as it doesn't sound as good as it could've been, especially the story, the soundtrack is still really good though from what I've heard. I might be more willing to try it out if it had been released in Europe but it hasn't so I would have to import it. If you've played this game, do you think it would be worth importing it?

I know TWEWY is supposed to good but the combat looks kinda funky so i'm a little unsure whether i'd like it or not but i'll probably pick it up eventually. Also I know that Nintendo Power gave sands of destruction a fairly good review but i'd have to read it again to say anything more.

I'll probably pick it up because it's supposed to have good combat and great dungeon design.

I'd like to second Dragon Quest V and Radiant Historia, and add Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Pokemon White/Black, Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver and Suikoden Tierkreis to the recommend list.

And although much of its gameplay has more in common with Zelda than its source series, I'd also recommend Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime, if you can find a copy. It's more fun than a spin-off has any right to be.

Just don't expect a non-linear game, and you will find it quite entertaining! It has this "Hollywood" feel to it, with the voiced characters, orchestral music and all... :)

Thanks, I'll get it at some point then and I know what you mean about the music. I've heard some of the game's awesome soundtrack on youtube.

Thanks to everyone who recommended games. I have way more stuff to get now through you all and internet searches, now to just get enough money to buy everything xD.

Soma bringer looks pretty good but isn't it Japan only? If so, does it have a fan translation? BTW, Welcome to the site!

Deep Labyrinth is that bad. I love Hack n Slash games, but even DL couldn't hold my attention. Spectral Force Genesis was also pretty bad - poorly balanced, slow, and just pooly designed overall. I haven't played the rest, but I do suggest at least explaining those two more thoroughly.

I'll add Soma bringer to my list of DS games to get then and I already knew about the Tales of Innocence translation patch. I loved ToS and I'm currently playing TotA on 3DS, which I'm loving and both have become two of my favourite games ever so I'll definitely get ToI at some point.

Can anyone give me their thoughts on Solatorobo: Red the Hunter and/or Jake Hunter Detective Story: Memories of the Past? I've been thinking about getting them for a while now.

Solatorobo is good if you like wordy story-based RPGs with easy action-y gameplay, as well as a gorgeous art style and soundtrack. As for Jake Hunter, I'll direct you to this review: http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/jakehunter-motp/index.html

Does anyone know why copies of Radiant Historia are going for 70-90 dollars? Was there a limited amount of copies and where could I find a cheap one?
