If you have ever played Advance Wars on the GBA or DS you will be VERY familiar with Field Commander. This game is almost EXACTLY the same. From joining damaged forces together as one unit, using a super, flying in troops, taking over buildings, etc. It is ALL in there. The few differences that I have noticed are the ability of a trooper to lay mines, shoot out trees to make a path, Satellite strikes, Napalm etc.. and being able to double stack aircraft on one playing spot.

The gameplay is as fun if not better than AW but with some great online modes. There is a two player swap back and forth, AD-HOC and direct online modes. The Transmit mode is great for those long games. The ability to transmit a game back and forth makes for a (chess like) multi-day game session. You can simply set up a game and transmit for an online player. Make all your moves then transmit and come back when the other player makes his move. Get this game if you are a fan of Strategy Games and love being able to control an Army on the go.

Remember to keep your aircraft fueled before they crash!

If you're a fan of turn-based strategy games this game should meet your expectations. It's got nice graphics, easy to play, and can be played in all modes (single player, Wi-Fi, and Infrastructure). It has enough unit types with varying strengths/weaknesses to allow many defensive/offensive strategic decisions to be made. It's like playing a complex and dynamic game of chess.

All in all I've been satisfied with this game and would recommend it for turn based strategy fans.

Overview:

A turn based strategy game, that is heavy on the strategy, with a military theme.

Graphics: 7

It's ok. I mean it's a nifty 3D env, but most of the time, you'll be viewing from the top, where it turns into 2D. And once you get into competitive online play, you'll almost always entirely skip the 3D view animations. One particular quirk that I have is that the group units are represented as a single unit. E.g., a infantry unit is represented as a single person, rather than a group of people. It looks a bit odd when a tank goes against an infantry unit. But nothing horrendous really.

Sound: 8

Very good, imho. Having been a RTS player, I've looked for the sound cues relevant to the gameplay. So far, the most obvious and important one I've noticed is this sound that enemy units make when they enter stealth. There are others - such as when the enemy uses the factory, for e.g.. And all the vocals, the "yes, sir!" type of responses, are pretty clear and well done.

Gameplay: 8

Excellent. It's hard core think before you shoot type of a strategy game. Think something like Risk or Chess, with far more complex rules. And while balance isn't perfect, it's actually better balanced then any other RTS/TBS games I've played so far.

Story: 3

Yeah, whatever. The campaign mode is fun, and it'll last you a few weeks. But it's also pretty easy to beat, and the story is certainly no RPG. The campaign mode unlocks new divisions that you can use, so it is definitely worthwhile.

Vs: 8

Here's the real meat of this game. Fixed maps are a disappointment, and the SOE server and matchmaking system leaves a lot to be desired.

Its no secret that this game "heavily borrows" almost all of it's elements from the GameBoy's Advance Wars series. However, speaking as a big fan of Advance Wars, this is a good thing. This is because the basic elements of the original series have been expanded and improved upon, and that doesn't even take into account the superior graphics and on-line multiplayer capabilities of the PSP.

The PROS:

1) Many different unit types.

2) Many different CO's and divisions with various abilities.

3) Good graphics.

4) Shallow learning curve. Easy to pick up and play.

5) Multiplayer capability.

The CONS:

1) Computer AI has occasional lapses in judgment making it easy to beat at times.

2) Maps could be bigger.

There is a story mode in the single player campaign, but if you find this annoying its as easy to skip over as hitting the "X" button, and its nowhere near as annoying as the one in Advance Wars.

If you liked the Advance War series, you will love Field Commander (unless you're a hopeless Nintendo fanboy). This is a turned based strategy game that is well worth picking up.

I love turn-based strategy games on the pc, but was concerned how the interface would be on a handheld. Field commander has a nice and simple user interface. The graphics and animation are nice. Speech throughout gives more personality to the characters in the story (campaign mode).

Campaign mode is a fun story driven mission oriented game. It starts off easy and gets more difficult over time.

The only problem I have with this game is the mediocre to poor AI (the reason I gave this 4 rather than 5 stars). Early on it is plain dumb (to make for easier missions) and gets a little better as you go on, but most of the difficulties later appear to be due to more difficult setups. However, campaign mode is still a great deal of fun.

The multiplayer mode bails the game's AI out. Being able to play online against other players and go up the rankings is a lot of fun and extremely challenging. You can choose different squadrons which give each player different advantages.

Overall, this is a fun game and definitely one worth buying. I can safely say that I won't sell it used either since I'll continue playing multiplayer games.
