Excerpt: It’s hard to think of a more under-represented genre on the PSP than that of strategy games. Field Commander attempts to fill this gap by bringing military turn-based strategy gaming to the system, and with a combined arms attack from the ground, air, and sea it does a fine job of accomplishing its mission.
Excerpt: Okay, let's just point out the elephant in the room right away. Field Commander isn't as visually impressive as I anticipated. Somehow, the screenshots and trailers managed to evoke grandeur that doesn't come through in the game. Sure, it's 3D - and if that impresses you, I've got a bridge in Alaska we should talk about.
Excerpt: Owners of the PSP who are fans of the strategy genre have something to be excited about with the release of Field Commander . The game features a realistic military setting, and may be the best strategy game for the system! Considering that Field Commander is a strategy title, most of the emphasis of the game is placed on combat rather than story, but that’s not to say that the story is bad.
Conclusion: Field Commander offers PSP owners something they’ve been missing since the launch of the system, a true PSP game. Field Commander was created from the ground up specifically for the portable. Sony Online Entertainment has single handedly showed the entire videogame industry how to make a PSP game and how to create a portable title that delivers a console-like online experience.
Conclusion: I said it before and I'll say it again: this is a game worth owning a PSP for. It's that good, and when you factor in all the replay value with the online modes and mission maker, it's an amazing back for your buck. Go buy this game.
