I bought this based on happy memories of the Amiga version, and I certainly have not been disapointed.

- Graphics are great, and at times beautiful!!
- Tanks are a lot of fun to master with the revolving turrets and upgradable armour and weapons.
- Aircraft combine helicopter and aeroplane almost best of both worlds.
- interface intuative.
- Combat is huge amout of fun.
- There's even a FPS bit at the beginning to set the scene for the campaign (not the bast FPS but I just saw it as a freebee).

What you get is a huge open ended world with vehicles, resource man, empire building, weapons to research and build. So much more than any game I have played for years, and at times its rock hard and you just cant leave it alone.

The story line is a bit hammy but I dont think it impacts on the overall game.

You can rock up at an enemy island scout about in a Manta check out the layout and then get stuck in with four tanks armed with whatever you have discovered or produced. Sound appealing?

My only negative comment is the number of bugs I have encounted when running under xp, but with a game this new I would expect these to be cleared up as patches become available.

I was a massive fan of the original carrier command game in the 80's and played for many hours on my trusty Atari ST. I was very excited to hear about this new release and purchased the "play & contribute" beta several months ago.

I've played only the campaign mode so far so please don't take this as a "complete" review of the game. What I enjoy the most is the reviving of the vehicle control and co-op needed to succeed in a campaign. Using multiple Walrus (Ground tanks) and Manta's (Aircraft) to beat each scenario the game throws at you.

The good parts of this game are the graphics, there are some great weather effects, the story wraps with the campaign mode well. The walrus and manta controls get some getting used too, but they are great fun once mastered.

The not so good part, are as others point out, its 2012 - they could & should of put in multi-player, this was something I hoped the original could of done (Remember null modem cables?) but a big disappointment here especially tied in with the fact that the enemy carrier AI is never all that hot.

The 1'st person FPS part at the start of the campaign I though was very clunky and poor compared to games like Quake 4, although once you complete this the game gets going nicely and goes back to its roots. For some reason the movie cut scenes don't work correctly on my PC but no big loss.

Having been a big fan of the original Carrier Command (back in ye specturm/amiga/st days)
I was quite keen to try this modern update.

It is in many ways quite faithful to the original, with a major makeover graphics wise.
I didn't care much for the initial "on foot" first person part of the story, but once you get into the Carrier section (ie the main game) things improve a lot.

One of the earlier resource games in the 80's Carrier command is a game of strategy and building up resources and planning attacks. It is very close to the first version, in terms of capturing islands, building bases and ensuring you have enough supplies of ammo, fuel and weapons.

The team have expanded the scope of weapons, you are still using your Walrus land/sea vehicles and Manta's as your aircraft.
Islands are bigger with more variety on defences and scenery, though the basics are the same (disable the defences, capture the HQ or destroy it)

Initial release was quite buggy, things have improved with updates. AI was very iffy in terms of path finding (Manta's frequently hitting objects and mountains) over time quite a good improvement here, though it's not perfect. The enemy can be quite aggressive, but like the original can at times be caught off guard; the enemy Carrier can be a bit of a sitting duck at times (not always but AI flaws are still here)

In many ways it's a game you get stuck into for a while, then might lose interest for a bit..but come back again now and then. Carrier command is quite a repetitive game by design, I would have liked to have seen a bit more variety bar just capturing islands (maybe a naval fleet to contend with?) If you liked the first game, you will like this. If you've never tried it before it's an acquired taste.

Verified Purchase
Good graphics and a good game but with issues. I did play the original back in the day.

Pro's

Good Graphics
Good maps & more variation than the original in capturing islands
Enjoyable campaign missions for the main
Good variety of equipment and configurations for your vehicles

Cons

Awful AI, both strategic for the enemy carrier (I managed to destroy it on my first strategic game easily because it was just running around my islands without going home to resupply - it had no walruses or manta's left, it's guns weren't turned toward me, I just sat there and blew it up with my deck gun on my carrier) & for the walruses, which are forever getting stuck. The mantas don't do that much either when you're not in direct control.

No way to speed up time, except when going between islands. You quite often have to sit there for ages waiting for things to dock.

No multiplayer - there is a sandbox style strategic mode but multiplayer not available.

Strategic mode you can't define enough parameters - couldn't do it so both you and AI start off with just 3 islands for example.
