Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command PSP Review

 

Warhammer is a tabletop fantasy game, where you paint little men and throw dice, it has quite a following. Warhammer 40,000: Squad command doesn't involve the painting and dice throwing, but rather fittingly you do move little men around a battlefield...

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command is an enjoyable slice of handheld strategy, that does few things wrong, though many PC gamers will find that it lacks depth compared to the strategy games they play on their mighty rig, but do be reasonable, this is a...

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command

 

Dicing with disappointment?

And it isn't only in narrative terms that simplicity dominates. Each mission allows you to take a total of six units unto the breach, and while more unit types are introduced as you advance through the single-player campaign, bringing new weapons with...

Warhammer 40,000 Squad Command (PSP) review

 

For the Emperor!

Squad Command does has its flaws but cloaks them with a mix of short missions and streamlined gameplay, making good use of the Warhammer licence.

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command

 

If it wasn't for the frustrating camera, Squad Command would have been a recommended PSP purchase for all. As it is, it's only recommended for die-hard Warhammer fans and turn-based enthusiasts.

Fun multiplayer ; Good graphics

Lacks variety ; Terrible camera

So, if it wasn't for the frustrating camera, Squad Command would have been a recommended PSP purchase for all. As it is, it's only recommended for die-hard Warhammer fans and turn-based enthusiasts.

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command (THQ)

 

Makes good use of the Warhammer 40k franchise, fun and engaging turn-based action

Missions can be hard, the pace of the game can slow to a crawl at points

For Warhammer 40K fans, this game's a no-brainer but even if you're unfamiliar with the franchise, Squad Command is a quality turn-based strategy game that deserves serious consideration.

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command on Nintendo DS

 

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
