What it ultimately comes down to is what kind of gamer you are. If you've never played the Advance Wars games before but have been intrigued by them, then Commanders is worth all ten of those dollars. However, if you're the kind of guy who has never gotten into this type of game, then maybe you should stick with other game.
Fans of Advance Wars may not find anything new or original in this game, but Commanders is a solid game that is unlike anything else on the Xbox Live Arcade. Here's hoping that Commanders 2 tries harder to differentiate itself from the other titles in the genre.
