Carrier Command Remake out tomorrow

For those that don't know about this

[ Show youtube player ]

It's a mostly faithful modern day version with some additions and some changes. It has a story mode campaign and a strategy one like we know from the Amiga. Looks promising and boasts very decent graphics. Xbox 360 and PC

I'm getting mine from Zavvi so even longer here. Wish I could have bought it local but there isn't a game shop in our town.

A little while back now I messaged one of the original guys and he was very impressed with what he had seen shown to him.It seems in good hands with BI then. Surprised there isn't more games like this these days thoughbut then that makes this one more special

Thinking I might bite the bullet and get this too... I thought it was going to be a squad based fps game from earlier gameplay vids but the more recent vids show mantas and walruses and make me want to play an updated Carrier Command.

THB: Yes the story campaign is a more directed linear type thing for the most with even a few on foot sections-later becoming more strategy too apparently towards the end. The dedicated strategy mode is closer to what we know on Amiga and the real meat for most players that have played the original I would think

Not sure I can wait for Zavvi to deliver mine, may have to get this elsewhere. Wish I had a decent PC at this point

Waiting is fun though and has been 23 years already I guess

I have to say, its awesome.

Im playing the campaign first. The game mechanics are very cool and it seems to stick closely to the original with extras.
