PC Gamer - 93%, Editors Choice Award
" The best wargame ever made for the PC. A monumental achievement in Game Design. It is the Mount Everest, the Beethoven´s Ninth, and Moby Dick of PC Wargames, and it absolutly qualifies as a genuine work of art."

Computer Gaming World - 5 out of 5 stars, Editors Choice
" The best hex-based wargame ever made. Period."

- Bruce Geryk - Computer Gaming World - September 2003

"It is probably THE best hex strategy game out to date though, and indeed possibly one of the best single campaign one too. If you like true-to-life, historical battles or are an avid strategist there’s only one thing left to say… Why are you still here reading this review?… you should be on the way out to buy this game!!"

Probably not, because it’s really too early to say what the likely outcomes are for the near future. Nevertheless, many military observers seem pretty much convinced that this event could make NATO, the main western collective defensive system, weaker and less effective: What if other countries decide to follow the British example and like in a domino effect, the internal cohesion and cooperation of the European nations is diminished as a consequence?

Command LIVE is a very ambitious project. Its aim is to recreate highly accurate scenarios from real-world situations and events, as they happen. WarfareSims has teamed up with the best editors and modders from the community, to create short, engaging scenarios that re-create real life events. Where geopolitical instability calls for military power to come into play, the Command LIVE project calls for players.
 
The first DLC to be released under this name is Old Grudges Never Die. Players take control of either Russian or Turkish forces in the attempt to maintain national honor and pride, while keeping a lid on hostilities to prevent the outbreak of larger conflict.
