    Deeply flawed, but still good fun.

    There is a lot to like in this game, especially for the first few hours. The art deco sci-fi visuals are pleasing, the effects nice enough, the characters varied, the tutorial thorough and the quantit...

    An 'Advance Wars' clone that brings turn-based strategy to Xbox Live Arcade.

    Rated on January 19, 2010 by Elite29

    To be honest, when I first started playing 'Commanders: Attack Of The Genos', I wasn't that impressed. In fact, it took me a couple times to really get into the game. I have no idea why that was the c...

    Awesome Game!

    Rated on August 01, 2008 by pwntskater

    When I first saw this game on the LIVE marketplace, I was thinking it would be really boring, but I still went ahead and downloaded the demo. After playing for just about 15 minutes, I was hooked. ...

    Arm-Chair Generals rejoice!

    During play, you view the map in a top-down, omnipotent view point, allowing you to see your entire army. Familiarity with the topography of the map is as crucial to having a sizeable army as well...

    The basic gameplay is very traditional turn-based unit combat, but the art and game environment make for fun experience!

    Rated on February 18, 2008 by Swoosie

    Commanders offers a really well-done turn-based unit-based military combat game. It's your traditional structure -- you build units, you move units using action points during each turn, and you can at...

    if you like turn-based, this is a great little game. It shares all of the faults of Advance Wars though.

    Rated on March 08, 2008 by dryden555

    if you can get past the inane story and ultra-cartoonish characters, this is a very solid turn based game with a decent amount of strategy. Since it is a blatant copy of Advance Wars, it shares the s...

    It's Advance Wars on an HD screen. Take it or leave it.

    Rated on March 16, 2008 by Gamakarmica
