Commanders: Attack of the Genos

 

Fans of the Advance Wars series and turn-based strategy games in general will be delighted with Sierra's latest Xbox Live Arcade offering,Commanders: Attack of the Genos. It mixes the same turn-based battle-map gameplay that made Advance Wars so...

All in all, Commanders is a fun ride on a small scale, if the turn-based strategy genre is your thing. It is also ideal for those who may be unsure if the genre suits them, and are "gun shy" about jumping right into something like Command & Conquer....

Commanders: Attack of the Genos Review

 

While real-time strategy games seem to be a stretch on consoles, the slower, more forgiving pace of turn-based strategy seems a perfect fit. So, why is it that it has taken so long for one to pop up on Xbox Live Arcade? Finally, Commanders: Attack Of...

Someone forgot to tell the developers that it is ok to give a turn-based strategy game personality. In keeping with the fifties setting, the soundtrack sounds like ragtime funk composed on a Commodore 64. The blippy music sounds cheap, rather than...

Digestible turn-based strategy on your 360.

Commanders: Attack of the Genos is a perfect way to get turn based strategy gaming onto the 360. It is easy enough for anyone to pick up and play, but has some of the strategy genre staples that will get people deeper into the hobby. If you just want...

As I begin my review of Commanders I'm reminded of something Clint Worley (producers of Field Commander for the PSP) said when defending himself against a barrage of negative comments that connected his game with the popular Advance Wars series. He...

Unfortunately Commanders: Attack of the Genos doesn't take any major chances or evolve the genre in any significant way, but it does what it sets out to do and gives you a great deal of action for a mere ten dollars.

Turn-based strategy games are becoming a stray find with only a few fleshed out titles released each year. Although most appear to be well established hits such as Advanced Wars, a minor amount of original titles manage to break through the thick crust...

It's cool to witness the many shapes and sizes of both modernized and futuristic machines destroying one another, but what shines is your primary spider-like Commander unit that assumes the role of your chosen character. Alec is not the only commander,...

Commanders: Attack of the Genos

 

Commanders represents a seldom-seen genre on the Xbox 360: turn-based strategy. If you've played Nintendo's Advance Wars then you'll feel right at home playing Commanders. An art deco style and a 50s pulp sci-fi story surround a solid strategy title...

Commanders: Attack of the Genos - Xbox Live Arcade

 

Attack of the Clone - does Nintendo know someone's copied Advance Wars?

Visual style ; Gradual learning curve ; Multiplayer

No resource management ; Slightly "blah" visuals ; Repetitive music

Commanders: Attack of the Genos is a fun, supremely-playable game that can and will be enjoyed even by those who aren't hardcore strategy fans.

manage to score a precision strike and wipe out the strategic void in the XBLA Marketplace? We took the game on a live fire test run to find out

Terrain plays a big factor in games like this as well. Troops on the open road will have an easier time cruising around the battlefield, thanks to a movement bonus. Those same troops, though, are sitting ducks when they come under fire, as there’s no...

You could be forgiven for having a sense of d-j' vu with this one, though not if you-ve tactfully avoided the Nintendo handhelds, or indeed kept well away from the recent rise in popularity of turn-based strategy games. Commanders - Attack of the Genos...

Commanders: Attack of the Genos

 

Commanders: Attack of the Genos is a turn-based strategy game for XBL that will remind you of several other strategy games on the market. Although it 'borrows' elements from Advance Wars and other strategy games I believe it's overall presentation and...

Great value ; Simple but addictive gameplay ; Decent story with colourful characters ; Enough variety in gameplay to keep veterans interested

Music can become repetitious ; Camera angles during fights can make you feel 'tipsy ; Depth of game will have advanced users wanting more ; Not allot of new gameplay elements being utilized here

Overall, Commanders offers something for new and old fans of turn-based strategy games. Simple yet addictive game play mixed with a lengthy single player campaign results in a satisfying purchase of only twelve bucks Canadian
