'If you are a keen RTS fan but not a keen FPS player, Nuclear Dawn may not be for you as play time with the Commander mode can be limited. If first-person shooters are more your focus then Nuclear Dawn will offer you a unique teamwork based experience, one in which your leader actually does have real tactical power. If though you are fan of both genres then you won’t want to miss playing Nuclear Dawn. It would be great if more genres could be blended as nicely as this is.'
