Review: Cargo Commander (New Gamer Nation)

Cargo Commander is that rare game that is completely and utterly summed up by its rather excellent title theme, Down the Drain. It’s a tune that permeates every part of the game—it plays in your home container, you can hear it in the distance as you race through disintegrating offices, and the game over screen uses it as an utterly brilliant leitmotif. But better yet, the song’s bluegrass pessimism sets a certain mood for the dangerous blue-collar job that makes up the central gameplay. Cargo Commander isn’t an epic space opera about saving the galaxy, but simply a touching tale about a man trying to support his family by scavenging the cold, dark reaches of space. (Cargo Commander, PC) 9.5/10
