“Buy it for an unforgettable taste of bona fide battlefield chaos. Buy it for the edginess it engenders so effortlessly. Buy it for those dry-lipped “Say again?”s that never get answered.”
Rock Paper Shotgun
“In many ways, I’d say Radio Commander is one of the most immersive games I’ve played in 2019.”
“As you get wrapped up in the story, the outcome of missions becomes incredibly tense. I can’t remember a simple “move” order in a strategy game ever being so heart-wrenching, as you sit idly by for minutes at a time (you can speed things up with a timelapse clock, though), waiting to hear back from units, or order a platoon into combat only to be met with silence.”

Yeah this game is awesome
I was commanding a unit to defend a hilltop. There was no escape, they had to defend it until the last man. It got to a point where over 500 enemies were almost on top of my guys. Had to call in artillery and napalm. After about 30 minutes of playing the game, I had to put my own men at risk to beat the enemy. I heard the pilot say that he had dropped the napalm, and then the radio from the infantry went silent. 10/10 emotional rollercoaster
The game is one of a kind. The feeling of dread when you napalm your own men, or when The radio goes silent and there no response. Truly for the history buffs.
For mature war gamers only
First of all you DO NOT have to use your own voice to command your troops or control the game. The game is fully playable with the game doing the conversations for multiple units and the commander in the game. The first review which gave the game one star was poorly written. I wasn’t bored at all playing Radio Commander. After reading the first 1 star review I decided to do some research. On Steam it’s got over 700 plus reviews and the game is rated: Very Positive. Yes there is mature language so what? It’s no different that any movie that’s available today on tv. You are commanding your troops from back at your base. You move little token(s) on a map directing them where you want them to go, but you don’t actually make them go there. Your troops get to where you ask them to go the best way they can. You can speed up the clock but remember your troops will make it to were they are going in due time. Your units and you converse back and forth throughout each mission as you take on various objectives. I think the voices overs used are well done and I didn’t have a problem with them. You’ll send your troops on various missions and try to keep them alive with your decisions. Like real life the wrong decision can and will cost lives. Are you prepared to live with your choices? It’s a strategy game it’s not speed chess. You have to imagine that your missions are playing out over time. All you can try to do is what you’ve been assigned to do with the men under your command. War can be harsh, and lives are lost with wrong decisions. Radio Commander puts you back at your base as you direct your men from afar. Can you live with the outcome? The tutorial could have been a little more intuitive, but I figured everything out before the first mission was even half way done. A double tap here or a swipe there is all you need. Very fun.
