Review Modern Command

Kevin Vadala
Strategic gun controls, amazing graphics
Still feels like tower defense
Modern Command for Android is another entry into the populated tower defense genre. Except this time, instead of towers, you control a central base that launches rockets and shoots bullets. You tap the incoming armies and launch missiles in order to defend the base.
In a lot of ways, Modern Command feels like a game that shouldn’t be fun, as it isn’t really unique or special. The style of the game is classic army style, without any science fiction elements or magical elements. The cartoon characters that provide small dialogues are also standard fare.
While many things about Modern Command don’t really stand out, it contains a strong core foundation based upon it’s superb audio effects, sharp graphics, and tight mechanics. When you launch a missile at a car, you can't simply tap the car and have the missile fly out and explode. You have to time it correctly and the game utilizes this timing system solidly. It feels strategic, and not as easy as say the machine gun. But the machine gun has limits as well, as it can overheat and it has a relatively small range. Every time it shoots it sounds great, and it has a satisfying element to it’s audio rhythm.
The game has good shooting elements, which is important because that’s really the only thing it has. Unfortunately many games lack that kind of polish. The main viewpoint from overhead looks great, and when you zoom in the graphics look better. I almost wanted to play zoomed instead of zoomed out, but strategically, that would be too hard.
Modern Command is a game that doesn’t really innovate, but it does what it does well. If you are tired of Tower Defense games, but have an itch, you might like the more strategic Modern Command.
