Summary: This is a decent Strategy RPG, but be warned, there are scenarios where if you research and buy the wrong stuff, you can end up with winnable scenarios in the end game, just like any JSRPG. This is more of a spaceship command RPG, and is pretty straightforward in design. Buy and upgrade ships. Place them in a strategic manner at the opening of a mission,. drive them across the map. blow up the enemies. Simple as that.
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: 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: 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: Best game I have ever played, I played the demo of an older r type game and never actually got to play the real thing, but I wanted to. I then saw this and bought it had so many challenges and bosses it was worth the money. I enjoyed playing it I tried to hunt down the older ones but couldn't find them. I got kind of mad I didn't play all the others when this one was such a good game.
