  1. From start to finish, it’s a fun experience and deserves to be drafted into most gamers’ Xbox LIVE Arcade library.
  2. Commanders: Attack of the Genos is no comparison to any modern strategy, it isn’t a comparison to many strategies within the last ten years even, but this game does surpass what 80% of Xbox live arcade currently holds by a long run, as it introduces originality, character & value, this is a rarity that needs to be looked up to.
  3. A breath of fresh air for Xbox LIVE Arcade providing a fun turn based strategy game well worth your 800 MS points.
  4. Commanders is a fine addition to Xbox LIVE Arcade. Not only does this game fall under the genre that has a lacklustre presence on Microsoft's online service, it is also an excellent title in itself. If you like Advance Wars on the DS, this game will be right up your alley. The graphics make the game feel fresh and give it its own face.
  5. A fun, supremely-playable game that can and will be enjoyed even by those who aren’t hardcore strategy fans.
  6. Unfortunately Commanders: Attack of the Genos doesn't take any major chances or evolve the genre in any significant way, but it does what it sets out to do and gives you a great deal of action for a mere ten dollars.
  7. If you're not a fan of strategy games, then there's nothing particularly different or compelling about the gameplay in Commanders to change your mind about the genre. For the rest of you, it does do a nice job of serving up some fun albeit straightforward strategy gameplay.
  8. Fans of the strategy gaming genre will find tactical challenges aplenty as both a single-player and multiplayer offering so there’s a lot to love about this title.
  9. Fans of the Advance Wars series or folks looking for a solid strategy game should shell out the 800 Marketplace points for this title.
  10. All in all, Commanders is a fun ride on a small scale, if the turn-based strategy genre is your thing.
  11. Everything feels crafted with care, and it's a fun and stylish strategy game.
  12. Despite a mediocre story and familiar gameplay aspects, Commanders: Attack of the Genos isn't afraid of showing a goofy side of an enjoyable experience. At eight hundred points, it's more than a welcome addition to the Xbox Live Arcade.

    The game is a fun distraction as a single player game and a good amount of fun when playing online.
  14. A perfect way to get turn based strategy gaming onto the 360. It is easy enough for anyone to pick up and play, but has some of the strategy genre staples that will get people deeper into the hobby.
  15. For better or worse, Commanders: Attack of the Genos is a high-definition homage to Advance Wars, but at a bargain Arcade price rather than a full retail offering.
  16. Sierra has done a great job of keeping the turn based game going at a good clip and reduced the waiting times as much as humanly possible.

    Was not feeling this game really, I go back to it from time to time because I normally like turn based games and i would like the achievementsWas not feeling this game really, I go back to it from time to time because I normally like turn based games and i would like the achievements from the game haha. But it for me is really really slow and have not been willing to put the effort in to finish the game. I have not been yet stopped on the campaign by the computer but its just so slow moving that i dont wanna sit there. There is a lot of "padding" in the campaign. Full Review »

    Not a bad game, actual gameplay is good and it can be quite addictive. The one thing that would have made this game much better is if it hadNot a bad game, actual gameplay is good and it can be quite addictive. The one thing that would have made this game much better is if it had some sort of technology development system. Because of this lack depth in the game it gets a 7. Would recommend giving this game a shot, after all its ony about £5 off of xbox live. Full Review »

    Very similar to Advance Wars on the DS - not quite as good but then it's under half the price so, for the money, excellent.
