    While slow to start, R-Type Command builds steam quickly and includes challenge after challenge. One of the best parts is exploring already conquered maps with new units that can fully exploit the resources tucked away in unseen corners. I loved all the R-Type games, and I love this though in a much different way. This is like the Mechwarrior boardgae realized in your pocket.

    A great strategy game with an awesome backstory, an even cooler twist, and a whole lot of play time. As has been said, the game does start slow, but once you get into the game, you'll be eager to finish. The battle animations are fairly simple, but putting them on random appearance does give an nice break to the main action every once in a while and they can be easily skipped.A great strategy game with an awesome backstory, an even cooler twist, and a whole lot of play time.

Overall, I'd say this is a must have game for any PSP owner looking for a good strategy game. Expand

  1. While the graphics needed more polish and the load times occasionally interrupt the flow of battle, R-Type Command presents an intense challenge with plenty of sci-fi flair that should satisfy most gamers.

    R-Type Command is an excellent chunk of addictive gaming set in a military sci-fi space opera, and an easy recommendation for anyone with the small amount of patience a good strategy game requires.

    R-Type Command isn't a bad game per se; it's just incredibly average, with too many flaws to overlook. [Aug 2008, p.79]
