Reviews and Problems with Warhammer : Squad Command
Showing 1-6 of 6
Not what I was expecting.

Summary: I was told by a friend that this game was similar to DoW, it isn't. It in fact, is closer to a horribly dumbed down and badly executed FFT with guns kind of ordeal. Skip it. Unless you're just a diehard Warhammer fan, which I am, but I'd rather play with my figures.
Summary: I've come to love strategy games, and Warhammer 40K: Squad Command is a cool looking, turn-based strategy game. Once I started to play it however, I found that it was kind of hard to learn, hard to get a good feel for the combat environment, and pretty slow going. Even after I learned how to control more than one guy at once, I found the combat process clunky and frustrating. I bought this for my brother's PSP and am unsure whether to give it another try on my DS...
Skimpy but fine for 40k fans who like turn based strategy.

Summary: For everyone who--like me--got really excited about this game because of hours of fun with Dawn of War (DoW, also published by THQ) rather than because you love the table top game BE WARNED. While Squad Command (SC) taps into the darkly religious galactic battlefield that is Warhammer 40k it doesn't convey the frantic ultra-violence so palpable in DoW and its expansions. That's no surprise, however, given that SC is turn-based. And that's no surprise, either.
Summary: This review is based exclusively on playing the single player version. My favourtie style of strategy games has been the turn-based version for many years, and I used to play tabletop 40k as a teenager, so I was really looking forward to this title. Ontop of that, I loved Chaos Gate - the similar PC game of 10 years ago - that I had heard Squad Command was closely designed on.
This is a REVIEW based on playing the full game...not Demo's or people's 'hopes' of what the game is like.

Summary: Ok before I start ... those of you who write reviews on what the game 'should be like' and then give it 5 stars...for god's sake stop !! OK you're a fan but reviews are supposed to tell people what they are about to buy based on experiences...not your hopes or DEMO's !! Rant over. Ok the game graphics are fine and the game play itself is fine. 'Fine' meaning nothing remarkable or worth commenting on...
Summary: I've tried several new copies of this game and all have had the same issue. The game crashes the PSP when you try to access its main menu, sounds is sketchy and skips. I would advise anyone to wait a while before purchasing this as it really needs some sort of patch.
