Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command
The graphics are terrible it takes forever to shoot the enemy and when you do they take two people and that leaves two guys vs ten men who kill them then you are down to guys however if you are very hardcore than this game is great. But for a good turn based game if you do not mind a little kid looking graphics the endwar is for you.
I have been playing warhammer for a few years. I joined the series when my friend got me into the Warhammer 40,000 Table-Top Strategy game! i immediately picked up as Space Marines, the main race you play as in this game, and actually had a lot of fun! when I saw that this game was coming out for the DS, i had to buy it the day it came out! IT IS THE BEST! There are about 15 missions in single player in which you play with a squad of normally 6 Marines. You fight against Chaos Space Marines and on certain levels, you can even command a Predator, tank with a huge autocannon, Land Raider, the largest tank in the Space marine Armada SUPERPOWERFUL, or even a dreadnought, Space marine that is encased in a huge robot body armor! Dreadought were mortally injured in battle and the only way for them to survive was to put them in these powerful robot armors. ANYWAYS! back to the game! Levels can go on for about a Half Hour when you get up higher in the game and some can even take about an hour! there is an in game save feature so if you feel the need to turn your DS offf and go outside, you can do so and start right back where you left off! But it isnt the Single Player that is the Gem of this game! it is the multiplayer! You can go online and play against anybody across the world! You can choose between 4 races online, 2 Space Marines and 2 Chaos Space Marines (your enemies in single player)! This game is excellent and every time i see my friends playing their DS's, i definately reccomend this game!
This game drew me to it because of the low price, and when I played it I was completely astonished. This is one of the best strategy games for the DS that combines a variety of guns, cover, and different ways to crush your opponent. This game is turn based, and this benefits the game because it would be too much to handle if it wasn't. You regularly handle a squad of about 6 or 7 units that vary as the game goes on. The weapons are all very powerful and you can destroy the environment and the enemies cover to leave them open and exposed in the open. Also this game isn't impossibly hard, but it's not too easy; the perfect mix for a strategy game. If you want to fight a friend, no need to buy 2 of the same game because this game also has ds download play! This game is simply awesome, and I recommend it to anybody
Might be better on the DS?
The PSP version seems to get alot of gripes for the control scheme, I wonder if it will be better on DS? And yes, there is nothing to compare this game with DoW. Squad Command is just that, its a tactical game, not real-time strategy. Warhammer and WH40k are awesome universes, I'm glad there are more games being made with them, I just hope they can keep a decent quallity and so the setting justice.
THIS IS NOT DAWN OF WAR
To Snake and others who think this is like the Sims series where it's on every system now - this game is NOT Dawn of War. It's a NEW Warhammer 40k game that doesn't follow the same mechanics or anything. Don't bother trying to compare them.
Interesting but not quite
This isn't like the Warhammer 40,000 I know on the PC. While it looks interesting enough to play, it looks much like the comparison between the PC version of The Sims 2 and the DS versions. It just doesn't measure up but it would be worth it to play thru once maybe, rent not buy on this one.
Warhammer 40K ROCKS!!!!!
I love the Warhammer 40K PC games, and this looks to be just as good! I may just buy a DS for this game xP. Also, if you like WH40K visit Blacklibrary.com. Awesome Warhammer based sci-fi books to be had there. Be warned though, its' a brit website, so everything is sold in pounds
Warhammer 40k the real game
Well I have played the Dawn of War Games and the real game its self Its a really fun game and THQ has done a pretty good job making the DoW games as acurate to the real game as possible but they can not put all the parts of the real game into a computer game this looks pretty good and i cant wait for it
AWESOMe i love warhammer games, sucks that i havent played the actual game to compare and contrast though-.- oh well, this better be awesome with an extremely long campaign unlike brothers in arms ds which was fun but to short
i got a ds just so i could play this game i love warhammer games this game is going to be the best game on ds
