Given the perpetual call for the return of the Advance Wars series and the general excitement people have for games involving hulking mechs in theory Warborn is a solid combination of elements for success. In practice, unfortunately, while it has some of the looks and presentation down it’s sorely lacking when it comes to innovation, excitement, or compelling reasons to slog it out through its 40-ish missions. It all just ultimately feels very generic and plain, from your units to your combat options to, most of all, the quickly repetitive and dull combat animations. While none of the other Advance Wars contenders on the Switch have necessarily been perfect I’d consider the rest of the pack a step ahead of this one.
