Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command (DS)

 

Consumers sure seem to appreciate the differences between the Sony PSP and the Nintendo DS, so maybe it's about time that developers caught on too. The latest illustration of this lack of understanding is the DS port of Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command,...

Certain types of games just don't easily mesh with handheld systems. A good case in point is the turn-based tactical simulation, which is awfully tricky to pull off successfully without a mouse on which to fall back. Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command...

A Pleasant Surprise

I was very surprised with Squad Command. The Action Point system is deep, well balanced, and always keeps the game entertaining. Besides the single player campaign, the player has a ton of multiplayer options available. It is too bad the graphics and...

Warhammer 40K: Squad Command Review

 

Games set in the Warhammer 40K universe are, save for the Dawn of War series, typically forgettable. Sure, they might be neat for a bit, and might last longer for fanboys of the 40K universe, but fall by the wayside for most gamers. The announcement of...

Overall, Squad Command is an excellent pickup for a strategy fan. You get a nice and difficult campaign to play through with a wide variety of weapons to rain destruction upon your enemies. You get to jump into a universe that, while not well-explained...

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command (PSP)

 

Squad Command quickly moves from being a game with great potential to yet another bust on Sony's handheld.

Set in the Warhammer universe; great CG movies

Barely any story; horrible control scheme; no in-game music

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command

 

Promising but troubled, with every step forward Squad Commander very carefully shoots itself in the foot.

Sharp-looking; free-form controls, destructible terrain are good ideas; fun multiplayer

Nearly impossible to get online; freeform controls and destructible terrain implemented poorly; poor camera; cheap AI

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command

 

Warhammer lands on PSP with addictive table-top-inspired fun.

Strategic gameplay in a fresh setting ; Attractive, destructible environments ; Infrastructure mode

Not hardcore enough for some ; Limited camera control ; Grid-less gaming

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command

 

A decent scaled down tabletop gaming experience on the PSP.

The multiplayer mode is pretty standard, but thankfully is offered in not only ad-hoc mode but also infrastructure. I had no trouble getting into a match, and everything seemed to be completely stable. Multiplayer is definitely where the title will...

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command - Review

 

Turn-based strategy is not a genre you see often on the PSP, especially when it's not tied into an RPG's battle system. It's a type of game that's better suited to the nice big monitor on your PC and mouse-based controls and after spending time with...

Fighting the interface is half of the battle here, but if you can get past that you'll find that at its core Squad Command is an ejoyable strategy game.

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command Nintendo DS Review

 

In the grim darkness of the future, there are only bad tactical games.

The result is a title that gives a tactical experience leaving a lot to be desired. There are just too many issues to recommend it to people who just want a deep tactical game, even for fans of the genre. Those who've enjoyed the Warhammer 40k tabletop...
