Command: Modern Air Naval Operations Wargame of the Year Edition

Reviews - From the Press

Review Hu3br

Posted: 17 JAN 2014

Since I had several bug and crash issues with version 1.01, I decided to review Command Modern Air Naval Operations on version 1.02, released on December. Thankfully, no issues were found during our 30h+ playthrough. The amount of Content provided with the game is baffling. I was blown away by the amount of details, customization to our fleet, how I could control every aspect of the scenario without ever feeling overwhelmed. That was mostly due to how the user interface works. Sure, it still needs some work when assigning missions but overall it was a pleasant surprise. Last, but not least, community help and how Warfare Sims handles it. Tons of new scenarios in a matter of months! New database stuff, its amazing! Overall, Command Modern Air Naval Operations is one of those games that I will pick up five or ten years from now and it will still be awesome to play. Definitely one of the best strategy / wargames released in 2013.

95% - "If you have even a passing interest in the subject matter. then this game is for you. Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations is, without a doubt, a seriously fun, intense, involving simulation of modern naval combat with nearly infinite replay value. It is a more than worthy successor to Harpoon".

"This game stands heads and shoulders above any game released this year. If it is not named Game of the Year in its genre, then that accolade is meaningless".

80% - "CMANO is a true gem for die-hard fans of hardcore Naval Warfare Simulation. Especially issuing of orders and coordination of the units are at the center of CMANO. The player sits almost in the operations center and from there controls all actions. Interest and some basic understanding of the naval warfare after 1945 are prerequisite to have joy in this item for a long time. Due to the intuitive control and access the tutorials, the game is easy to learn - but the complexity makes it difficult to quickly master CMANO. The improved AI and the contemporary graphic implementation make CMANO for Harpoon veterans a must".

"After the first mission (The Battle of Latakia in 1973), I was under the spell of the game. After the second mission (Falklands Crisis in 1982) I was excited. After the third mission (US vs Iran in the Strait of Hormuz in 2017), I was in love. [] CMANO is definitely the wargame that all the Harpoons fans were waiting for".

"Command: Modern Air Naval Operations is that rare thing, a wargame more interested in aircraft, ships, and missilery, than grunts, tanks, or cavalry".

"With a map covering the whole world, relentless realism and endless opportunities to create interesting scenarios in the included editor, everything indicates that Command will be a success among wargamers and people who are curious about how a [] war against e.g. Syria would look like from the bridge on a ship".
