Promoted as the first turn-based strategy game for the PlayStation Portable, Field Commander puts gamers in a world fraught with a secret government military and terrorists bent on world domination. Players begin as a field commander for the "Advanced Tactical Legion for Allied Security" (ATLAS). This secret organization was created by the Allied Nations to combat the dirty deeds of the Shadow Nations, a terrorist group that enjoys long walks on the beach, bombing buildings, and illegal arms sales. Technology and vehicles from 50 nations are available, as well as 36 different units, 11 commanding officers, and 15 divisions, ready for deployment. Thirty missions await the single player in "Campaign" mode where each challenge adds to the storyline. Creative commanders can design deadly gauntlets in "Create Missions" mode, and then upload them for online play. Four multiplayer options include Ad-hoc, hot seat, e-mail play, and online matchmaking.
The included tutorial teaches techniques for fighting on land, sea, and air, but impatient gamers can "Quick Battle" a single mission. Task completion will unlock bonus content, extra units, and divisions. ~ Gracie Leach, All Game GuideField Commander, click here for more details
