When I first saw this, and bought it original in its box I have to say (one of the few that I managed to find BTW), I had high hopes to be a true sequel to Carrier Command. I was very very disappointed though. ITs more like a shoot em up combined with a tank sim than a strategy game like Carrier Command. As a sequel it sucks big time. If you take the game though seperately and don't judge it as a sequel to Carrier Command, its a good game that can suck several hours of your free time. Not an excellent game but its not a bad game either.
3/5 stars because of the game and because of how it managed to hook me for hours.
Having played and loved Carrier Command I was very excited about this sequel. I wasn't disappointed (apart from the menu screen above being a bit crap!). Whilst this didn't have the resource management of Carrier Command it did have a sense of danger and discovery. I got quite far in the game but never figured out what I was supposed to do on the level with the train. I could divert it but then didn't know what to do from there. I remember it being immense fun to play with all the various weapons and I remember there being an incredible sense of tension. Great game and just like its predecessor very tough!
