Summary: If you love a turn based strategy, than this is for you. This game if beyond fantastic. This was one of the first games i got when i got my PSP quite a while ago, and boy was it worth it. This game if a turned based strategy with RPG elements to it. You start off with a few ships that arent very powerful, and you work your way up getting more powerful ships till you assault the last level with the most powerful group of ships you can acquire.
Summary: The R-type series is fun as a side scrolling shooter, but for an RPG nut like me it's even better as this FF Tactics-esque game! The ships, the upgrades, the combos and unlockables -- all are amazing, and there's even a story that sorta-kinda ties it together! I say that because in true R-type fashion, it leaves you with questions and "huh?" moments throughout.
Summary: this game is great for new gamers all the way up to the experienced. great for kids because it is easy to understand and play and its great for others because its simple and time consuming so u can enjoy a game
Summary: Fine, around three years ago I saw this and the Gradius Collection... I never really got into R-Type all too much. I've played through the SNES R-Type III: The Third Lightning which is the basis for my R-Type experience. Nonetheless while Command is not as difficult as the other R-Type games I can't really compare them. It's a hex grid turn based strategy game. I grew up with the SSI strategy games (and a few others too) so the game format I was somewhat used to.
Summary: I grew up plugging quarters into R-type video game. I probably should have done more research into THIS PSP game but once I got it I was dissapointed to say the least. The canned animations may look cool but the game play is about as sophisticated as games I have played on my first commodor 64. A hex grid turn by turn game played on a state of the art hand held console capable of 3D real time animation and interface????? REALLY? turn by turn hex game play!?!??!
Summary: R-Type Command is faithful to the series, even in it's big turn from shooter to command style genre. I counted about 77 ships playable throughout the whole game, and overall, you'll get lost in the depth of the story, which is rather intriguing. A must buy for anyone with a PSP and a love of R-Type.
Summary: R-type is back. I was a little unsure of having one of my favorite games reworked into stratagy form...but they did a great job at it. the graphics are good and the layout is wonderful. takes a little time to learn about the units if you haven't been keeping up with r-type lately so my friend and I note to buyers. It's also pretty long and also lets you fight friends and for the first time command the Bydo forces as well.
Summary: I am not much into RTS or TBS games, but this was something that I felt compelled to try. I tried this for two reasons, 1: the save anywhere function and 2: there was a demo. I ALSO understood that this was NOT a typical R-type shooter. I, unlike others who tanked this game because they didn't bother to view the description, actually READ the description and therefore I KNEW what this game was about.
Summary: I bought this for my video game-addicted son who is in the Air-Force along with another much more expensive game that just came out. He liked this one better. Other than that I have no idea what the game does, it did come with a model of one of the spaceships in the game, he loved that because he collect models as well.
Summary: This game is great. If you love a deep strategy game, this is the one to get, especially if you love R-Type. It may ditch the classic 2D gameplay, but the move to a Strategy game is quite brilliant, and quite fun. Overall, the music is great, the graphics are nice, and the storyline is really well done. This game is also worth getting with the R-Type Tactics Original Sountrack. Great music, a mix of techno and orchestrated music, a feast for the ears.
