December 10, 2007 - Good - Squad Command is far from perfect, but it is also the closest thing to playing actual Warhammer 40K on a videogame system. Turn-based strategy enthusiasts will definitely want to check this game out, and if you are a Warhammer fan then it is really a no-brainer.
November 27, 2007 - Good - [Squad Command] could and should achieve so much more - but frankly it achieves enough by making a specialist subject matter and a specialist genre as fun and accessible as it does.
November 26, 2007 - Good - Squad Command should please most turn-based strategy fans - specially those tiring of the Japanese RPG dominance in this category - while also offering an accessible pick-up-and-play entry for newcomers to the genre.
November 21, 2007 - Mediocre - A little more fine-tuning and Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command might have been a winner. However, with all of the interface and control issues, the game is merely passable to OK, depending on your love of space marines.
December 4, 2007 - Mediocre - The multiplayer is by far the strongest element of the game, so hopefully we'll see both more ease of connection and an update to online options in the future. With both of those things in place, most likely in a sequel, Squad Command might not be a game whose biggest enemy is itself.
November 16, 2007 - Mediocre - Warhammer fans: the ability to control classic Warhammer units may make this game more appealing to you, but anyone interested in the title should be extremely cautious before investing the time and money. The positive elements just barely outweigh the bad.
November 22, 2007 - Mediocre - If it wasn't for the frustrating camera, Squad Command would have been a recommended PSP purchase for all. As it is, it's only recommended for die-hard Warhammer fans and turn-based enthusiasts.
December 13, 2007 - Poor - Squad Command quickly moves from being a game with great potential to yet another bust on Sony's handheld.
