GameSpot: Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command for PSP Review

Certain types of games just don't easily mesh with handheld systems. A good case in point is the turn-based tactical simulation, which is awfully tricky to pull off successfully without a mouse on which to fall back. Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command could have been a contender if it had only come out on a platform better able to host this style of game. Control limitations of the Sony PSP and some design miscues make this a near miss most appreciated by Warhammer fans too hot for the license to notice any of the game's problems.

The Good
* Solid use of Warhammer license and distinctive miniature designs
* Straightforward, easy-to-understand turn-based interface
* Excellent level design with loads of destructible terrain.

The Bad
* Limited and annoying camera angles
* Odd design choices make it difficult to control troops.

Score: 6.5/10

I think the game will still sell to the people that would have bought it anyways. The people that like these type of games will still enjoy it and not worry about the mediocre review.
