I've never played a warhammer game before other than wc3mod , but after this one I will deffinately pick up some others. This game is a great adaptation of rts squad combat for the ds. With good graffix, unit upgrades, and destructible environments, the only disapointment of this game is how short it was.
DS Version - Graphically speaking the game was very disappointing. The intro simply fades in and out with still pictures. In game is even more disappointing... graphically speaking the only way that I could tell a difference between my troops and the AI troops was by their color. There was no attention paid to the detail of the sprites. The Nintendo DS is capable of better. I gave up playing it after roughly 30 minutes.
Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command is a good game, but there are better RTS's for the DS out there, a least for those who like to have a Rock/Paper/Scissor as Warhammer is mainly a "Shoot first, kill first" kind of RTS. You do have the option to give your squad members different weapons but if your a die-hard RTSer who likes to be able to summon his own fighters and not have to rely on a set number of fighters than this isn't a game for you. If however your new to RTSs and want to get used to it, or are a fan of the Warhammer series this games good for you.
