  • Summary: Many years have passed since the Gammulans invaded the sol system in full force and all but decimated the inhabitants of the planetary systems. cites were completely devastated and entire continents wiped out. In their wake, they left a splintered Galactic Command (GALCOM) alliance still engaged in a fierce battle with insurgents who oppose the alliance. Stretched to the limit Galactic Command scientists developed a new space craft that is lighter, faster and more powerful than any before it. Episode One begins with this new Engstrom class carrier's first day in a live combat engagement. The player’s Echo fighter squadron of fighters has been assigned to the WildStar battle fleet led by the GCV-Excalibur in operations against the Insurgent uprising. As an Elite Force Pilot and leader of the Echo fighter wing assigned to IIS starstation in orbit around Titan, the player’s fighter wing is tasked with leading a series of defensive and offensive missions against the Insurgents occupying Sol territories. The player commands a different fighter in each episode. Missions take place in space and on the surface of planets and range from basic escort and recon missions, to highly engaging and dangerous tactical strike missions. [GamersGate] Expand

    If you can eventually come to grips with its incredible complexity -- and we're talking days, not hours, at the controls -- Galactic Command Echo Squad SE will begin to show its prowess.
  2. Despite some substantive attempts to make the genre revival easier for new players to pick up, Galactic Command: Echo Squad SE remains a niche title through-and-through. If you hunger for oldschool space combat, then it's possible to derive a certain level of nostalgic enjoyment from the first installment of Echo Squad. However, the game fails in making the space combat experience more accessible to casual PC players.
  3. Same old niche, now with less freedom. [July 2008, p.74]
