Commander offers six different scenarios and very detailed information and historical references. Strategy gamers will love all the advanced controls and features, like being able to develop new technologies, managing your different armies and taking care of supplies, morale and health. With control of land, sea and air forces, you'll be able to take part in very diverse missions worldwide.

The game board itself is very well designed, although it can get a bit crowded with units. You can zoom in on specific regions and get information on cities and armies. The vehicles and infantry are well recreated and the ability to recruit famous commanders adds a bit more realism to the game. While playing alone vs the CPU will prove enough of a challenge you can also connect with other Commander users online. In terms of performances, the game can take a bit of time to load between turns, but that's something to expect with turn based games.
