Command: Modern Air Naval Operations

Recommended Posts

Me being a huge Harpoon, Dangerous Waters, and Falcon 4.0 fanatic as well as having classics like Red Storm Rising and the War that Never Was on my shelf, Command is my current wargaming poison. Though if you're starting out with it and do not have a beefy processor and an SSD, you may want to get those, turn off autosaving, and set range rings to "Selected Unit Only" nonetheless. That screen can get quite busy and make it very difficult to process the battespace, not to mention bring even fairly modern machines to their knees!

For some tips, I'd also recommend watching Baloogan's streams of the game:

And if you're having difficulty telling your Flankers from your Eagles, your Ticonderogas from your Kirovs, and SM-2MRs from your SA-10s, there is this handy database:

Other than that, it in ways plays like a cRPG. I mean, it has real-time pausing and die-rolls, except your Warriors with a +1 mace are F-16s and the die-rolls decide if your AN/ALE-50 decoy seduces that SAM instead of whether or not your char makes his mental saves.

Thanks for the heads up on it. I just downloaded the current patch 1.03 and will probably get around to playing it after beating Outlast.

Any time. Just keep me updated if you have any questions you want answered about playing the game, platforms, and the like. It was pretty rough going for me trying to get the hang of it at first (though the fact that it was a bit buggy and crashy didn't help), but me being the persistent type I kept at it and it's a worthy addition to my games library. The last thing I want you to think is that you wasted the not so insignificant sum that you spent* on buying a Matrix joint that was either too buggy, had too steep a learning curve, or the presentation is too wooden for your tastes (as the company is clearly not on the same planet as most other game publishers when it comes to pricing). Don't be afraid to shoot a question on the forum which is packed to the brim with enthusiastic, knowledgeable people.

 

*It is in fact possible to get a refund, as one user on the forum managed to do.
