Summary: Once you get past the somewhat bland art style, you have a excellent Advance Wars clone with wonderfully deep online play options, and a community of people still playing online. There are a ton of user generated levels out there as well! Just a heads up PSN sells the game for $9.99 so factor that into any purchase decision. If you want someone to play an asynchronous multiplayer game with, my user name is whiskeyblues.

Summary: Field Commander for the PSP is very similar to Advance Wars on the DS side of things. You use turn based commands to negotiate your troops around a map to win a number of scenarios. The key to this game is getting familiar with the different units under your command and coming to know the strengths and weaknesses of each one. You send the fast scouts zipping in to get the lay of the land, to spot where your enemies are hiding.
Summary: Although this game won't dazzle you with amazing graphics or incredible innovation, it will probably end up at the top of your game list. Field Commander is the perfect game for two people when traveling. It plays like a traditional 'war' game but with the benefit of modern technology. It is a GREAT strategy game with fun graphics, good AI, and very good multi-player options. For turn-based stategy games, I think this is the one to get.
Summary: this is a really fun game that had little advertising and it turns out is a real blast to play both online and alone although as others have said enemy A.I. can be downright ignorant at times this seems to not only add to its charm but seems to BE the learning curve because later on they seem to make Fewer blunders.
Summary: I have to say, this is the only game I've purchased so far that I've really enjoyed on the PSP!!! If you are into strategy games this is the one for you!! Great game play, difficulty is really nice. It's not super easy to beat, but not impossible either. A lot of the maps differ in difficulty also. It's nice to have a easy round now and then. Definitely a "Must Have" for the PSP.
