I was wondering If anyone still played Force Comander ?
Force Commander is a pretty good game & when I log onto multiplayer & then the MSN thingy nobody is playing I know it's old but come on there's still got to be some hardcore players out there somewhere ! So I check it out from time to time .See ya on line & "May the force be with you "!

Well I still play it ... sorta.. had a bit of a rumble with Dave Maul in Focom last week and all that.

I still play it but my progress has slowed to a crawl. I think I've got one more Imperial mission before switching to the Rebel Alliance.

I hadn't been to this forum for about 9 months. I come back thinking, "I wonder if anybody still plays Force Commander, anymore?" and this is the first thread I see!

Force Commander has got to be the best game of games that got really bad reviews. I constantly bump into user reviews of the game on the net where people say the game rocks! Amazing! It will always be one of my all-time favorites.

Well, the biggest problem of FC and Rebellion is that, they r so hard to get in control...and the game isn't that fast temple and require a long time to get some results....

They r both great game.

Sorry, but I've been reading these forums for awhile and held back as long as I could. I'm not complaining about you guys, it looks like all of you may feel the same, but I am tired of people trashing Force Commander and seeming to forget Rebellion ever existed. These two games, in my opinion, are two of the best games I have ever played. Rebellion especially - still after all these years it's been out I know many people I deal with still hail this as one outstanding masterpiece. Praise must go out to the creator, or creators of Rebed, because with the ability to add/remove/edit characters, multiplayer games are filled with more thrills each time. My one friend and I are always trying to find ways to enhance the battle in MP - we have a constant war going on (when we find the time) that has become personal to say the least. This game is one of the reasons why I went and hooked up a network a couple of years back, cause tying up the phone line for 8 hours straight would be bad, I guess. We've certainly pulled our share of all-nighters with this game. There is so much to this game that I can't really express it all - and once, hopefully, the ability to change the ship models in the tactical mode becomes available - there will be even more time spent on this game. Rebed also makes the SP game worthwhile again - with the ability to boost the competition. I got tired of beating the game on Hard with Large Galaxy - now there's a new challenge by making the enemy stronger w/better stats, etc. Needless to say this game has a permanent spot on the HD. As for Force Commander, well, I can't admit putting in as much time as Rebellion. However, this game is still powerful. Not many of the people I know seem to like it the same as I do so finding MP games become hard. I have yet to fill all the spots on my network and I'm still looking forward to that. There's not as much in this game that can be manipulated as there is in Rebellion, but for what it has I was impressed. The camera angles for one, I love to watch the AT-AT's come thumping towards the enemy, or watch the rebel soldier's being crushed beneath their feet. And as a rebel you can even steal Imperial vehicles! C'mon! That's cool. There needs to be an expansion and/or sequel to this game. I can see some flaws like having vehicles walk through buildings and some others, but over all there is a lot to be desired. The good out-weighs the bad by far. Even some of the SP missions are impressive. Hoth could have used more work - I don't like that you have natural boundries between you and the rebel base. From the movie it looked like a long straight walk. The sounds are nice the cut scenes are really nice - especially the opening. It should have required more, I don't know... 'something', to gain command points. But like I've said a few times, over all it was real good. Now I guess I'm done with my rant. But regardless what people say these games will be on my list as some of the most impressive. With what I see coming out though, I wish LucasArts will see the profit it can make by making all the new games have a PC version. I don't want to buy Nintendo just for Rogue Squadron II!

antilles 10-24-2001 11:20 AM

Well...i will buy a GC for Rogue 2...It looks very great....

I agree with above...ya, rebel with a ATAT is my favorite againest Empire...

And i am always like to play with the camara angle....let it round and zoom in like in was just so COOL!

Hey, Rebellion and Force Commander were great games! I mean... all the faults are just juicy tidbits to debate improving right? I think I've driven myself insane thinking up new ideas for those things, but not being able to try them of course :) get off my butt and learn some programming maybe. If anyone wants to have a healthy AIM discussion on what to do to improve them, let me know. Or to play them of course :) unless my firewall here doesn't work

Huzzah for the strategy games! Especially Rebellion! Someone figure out how to add *more* ships and units to rebellion, rather than just editing them... THEN it'll rock...


Pedro The Hutt 11-15-2001 01:37 AM

Huzzah, another person that says Huzzah

Hey, I just finished Massacre at Abridon Pt. 3 - what a insane firefight - and Escape from Kalaan - awesome mission needing a ton of stealth! So yeah, I"m still playing. And heck, it's only taken me what, two years, to get to the Rebel side! I had more fun completing those two missions than I am playing Max Payne and Deus Ex - not bad for a two-year old game!

I still Play Focom, but not as much because I am stuck on the First Timed Mission on the Imperial Missions..Other than that I end up loading Battle Grounds instead. :p

I'll have to pop on to the MSN Gaming site and see if there are any Focom players still. I had great trouble learning the game with the Demo as it didn't do the game Justice. It's a very good strategy game but is let down by one or two bugs. a better Gaming Engine maybe better too if they did a second version.

ahhh, Sarapin Part 2. One of my favorite levels. It's really hard, but very awesome cutscene when you beat it. (i think) I love how the screen shakes every once in a while, and I love the music in it.

EKaterin61 04-07-2002 01:52 PM

Really Really hard ! your not kidding :amidala:

I'll get it beat though hopefully :D It would be cool if there was some thing to just disable the timer though !
