8.0 / 10- "Commander: The Great War is a good game that works on classic wargame mechanisms, allowing the beginner to learn to gently strategy game and the veteran to take it on hand immediately. Events occurring during the party, decorated with vintage photos, contribute to the immersion in this little period simulated in a video game."

80/100- I have wanted a Great War wargame for some time now. Those currently on the market just did not appeal to me. I had a feeling this would be the game to fill that void. Man on man was my gut feeling right on the mark.

8/10- In general, Commander: The Great War is a must-try all who love turn-based wargames of this type, and anyone interested in the First World theme.

Review at Tacticular cancer

Posted: 4 FEB 2013

Commander: The Great War certainly (and rightly so) feels more like arm-wrestling than a graceful sword duel. Yet for anyone who has grown tired of years of panzers, blitzkrieg, Stalingrad and Normandy, this game should be just the ticket.

"Im about halfway through my first 118-turn Commander: The Great War campaign at present, and cant recall enjoying a grand-strategic WWI title more. Lordz seem to have judged the scale, pace and workload just about perfectly."

The Lordz are an impressive development studio with increasingly better games coming out of their forge, and Commander The Great War promises to be The Next Big Thing as far as the turn-based, hexagonal strategies are concerned.

"Addressing a conflict that is underrepresented in video games, adapting the gameplay of it's predecessors with a new engine, adding new features and proving itself to be more challenging, Commander: The Great War promises to be the best title in the Commander series."
