5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible remake of incredible classic. January 13, 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As someone who played for many hours on Carrier Command on my Commodore 64 (1988 release), I have waited patiently for years to be able to play it again. While Gaea Mission recreates the strategy and replay-abilty of the original, they have done something so rarely seen in remakes, they have made it so much more.

First of all, it is beautiful. The level of detail, the weather, the night sky, sunrise, even sunlight realistically coming through the trees as you pilot your walrus through the forest! All magnificent. Play the free demo and see for yourselves.

Next is the excellent balance of gameplay versus management of resources. You need to make sure you have a good balance of production capabilities, and that you are making things that you will be needing (you wouldn't want to have your supply network run out of fuel!). But this aspect of the game does not distract from play, but adds to it.

Third but not least is the open ended feel of play. There is a variety of islands, terrains, types of defenses to overcome, and an unlimited number of strategies to victory. I was using 4 walrus as a pack on the ground to achieve objectives (something I saw on Youtube) but was not crazy about the pathing of the supporting vehicles (more on this in a bit). But now I am flying Mantas one at a time to soften up defenses then going in with a smaller (1-2) vehicle force. There is no right or wrong way, which is why I can't stop playing. Always trying new strategies is not going to get boring.

Fourth is the enemy AI. I was just hunting an enemy walrus that was ducking in the trees for cover. It took a few minutes to flush him out and destroy him, but it was fun to try to outsmart him. And I do feel that he is trying to do the same to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic game hidden in here November 4, 2012
By MpressM
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
If u can get past the undeniably atrocious 1st person segment (just a few in campaign), then you will find a strat/action game like no other. I'm having such a blast.
The ai pathfinding (an early prob) has already gotten a patch improving the pathfinding code a bit, but you still have to keep an eye on your traversing units.
Something so awesome about taking control of a fighter to bomb a base then instantly switch to a tank (walrus in this game) to polish off the rest of said base with whatever weapons you decided to equip it with (of which there are MANY to choose from) and then switch to your carrier to control the outboard guns (configurable) to light up an enemy carrier... I'm just having a blast. The customizable skirmish mode will see me putting many an hour in this game.

3.0 out of 5 stars So much potential...if it worked. January 17, 2013
By Buck
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I loved the fluid nature of the game. As someone stated in another review, switching between aircraft and ground forces is so simple and quick. The game made me so mad in a good way, because you start to attack a defensive island held by the enemy, you'll know what I mean. This was the good 'angry' - then came the 'bad' angry. The game is literally broken. After I got half way through I was looking for the marshes upgrade for days on end retracing islands to no avail until I literally hit almost every single one.

Then after pressing through that I get near the end of the game (from what I can tell) and after a cutscene I'm locked into this stupid view and there is no way to exit. Essentially, the game is amazing errr will be amazing once the bugs are fixed, until then steer clear.

PROS:
+ Seamless unit transitions
+ Great length of game
+ Difficulty = just right
+ Nice blend of 1st person & 3rd person.

CONS:
+ B-R-O-K-E-N
+ Lack of explanation of button controls (I learned that switching b/w FP and 3rd person was done by hitting select almost by the time I finished playing it)

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as reviewers claim it to be December 30, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The pc version originally got blasted by review sites for terrible ai pathfinding mainly on the walrus, so far it hasn't been that big of a problem. It must have got patched in the xbox version, you do have to babysit your units somewhat but they respond to commands well. The creators of this game made the arma series a realistic military simulation, arma had a huge learning curve on pc that took a long time to fully comprehend. So I was surprised they made this game as user friendly as it is, controls do take getting use to but they become fluid over time. Graphically its not outdoing any other games, textures on objects could have been improved. Their is some good lighting fx's and water looks pretty good. The flying ships maneuver pretty well, walrus's on the other hand can be frustrating at times. Feels a bit like the walrus is floating on land just as it does on water. For such a menacing looking vehicle it can barely make it up anything, needs more power and articulated suspension. Overall though it's a pretty good strategy game that deserves better reviews than it's been given.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love it - I hate it June 17, 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
So many things I enjoyed about this game. So many things made me want to throw my controller out the window.

+ Game play is fun. Using the different units to fulfill their roles was very enjoyable.
+ Graphics are decent.
+ I enjoy the combination of strategy and tactics.
+ A campaign which was enjoyable and taught you the basics. And a strategic game that sets up a random board.

- The AI on your other units is retarded! You only get 4 ground units and 4 air units. Watching your other tanks try to follow you was like watching turtles dry humping each other. The air units don't do so bad probably because they don't have to worry about terrain.
- Combine the first negative with a critical campaign mission that has a time limit. AAAAAARRRGGHH!!!! Would you guys just drive already?! Its a straight line!!!!!!! Why are you trying to climb a cliff?!
- Playing the strategic game there are times where it is very choppy and laggy. Very. Unplayable.

I've read others complain about the first person shooter aspect of this game. Yes it is lacking as well. You don't spend a lot of time doing it and they are short missions.

I didn't want to give this game 3 stars because it really is fun. It just seems like it could use some polish. I really hope they come out with a second one. If they just fixed the AI, it would make this game sooooo much better.

I paid a minimal amount for it now that it came out and I have gotten a lot of fun hours of play out of it. I would recommend the game. Just be prepared to accept some of its downfalls for what they are and enjoy what it does offer.
