  1. An acquired taste, if you like to work out the old gray matter, this is the game for you.
  2. Those wargamers will be able to find little wrong with BCT. (Plus, it runs like a dream on the lowest of the low-end PCs!) It’s a complex game, but it’s a satisfying experience once you get your hands dirty.
  3. Ovaldog gives BCT Commander a big two thumbs up! If your Hard-core, go get it!
  4. It's a rigorous, realistic simulation of what it's like to command a brigade of combined-arms troops in modern warfare.
  5. Those who love controlling every aspect of a battle, those who have time to spend mastering the cumbersome interface, and those who don't mind managing a daunting number of units may enjoy BCT Commander. Everyone else should stay away.
  6. 50
    You have to own military manuals to make any sense of the thousands of acronyms which are "understood" in the game.
  7. 40
    Niche wargaming at its worst: clunky, obscure, and sterile. It ultimately feels more like homework than a wargame.
  8. To get anything out of it, you'll need to do a fair bit of thinking and studying. If you don't enjoy a program of mental weightlifting in your entertainment, steer clear.
  9. Once you learn the ins and outs of the complex menu-driven tactical situation, the battles are absolutely breathtaking. [Mar 2002, p.78]
  10. BCT fails so dismally at playability that the realism doesn't matter. [August 2002, p.81]
