Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp includes remastered campaigns of the first two Game Boy Advance releases in Nintendo’s long dormant tactics franchise. While the original GBA Advance Wars is a classic in its own right, many fans of the series consider the sequel the pinnacle of the series.
Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising introduces new CO’s and new gameplay elements to make for an even more in-depth tactical experience. But when you first launch Re-Boot Camp, it seems as if you don’t have access to the second campaign. Unlocking it is a lot easier than the collection makes it seem.
