Review of 'Carrier Command'

Rating:5 User: p13z

Carrier Command was a big deal when it came out on the 16 bit computers, combining 3d vehicle combat simulations into a war strategy game. A credible Speccy version seemed unlikely, but somehow they did it, albeit only for 128k machines.
The 3d graphics are notably good. Only a slight reduction in resolution, speed and obviously a large loss of colour sets this apart from the 16 bit versions. Almost all aspects of the game remain intact, even the sound is pretty good.
Set out for a 'quick blast' and end up engrossed in capturing the islands from the enemy 'robotic aircraft carrier'.
