Reviews

“Aeon Command satisfies the things I want in a good strategy game: variability in play, upgrades and a tactical challenge that requires managing many aspects.”
8/10 – Seb, IndieGameHQ

“Aeon Command is a decidedly fun time that can take as little or as much time as you’d like. It’s easy to play, quick to jump into and loads of fun.”
Brian Rubin, SpaceGameJunkie

“Aeon Command is a surprisingly in-depth strategy game despite it being easy to play. I found myself playing match after match, just so I could throw points into my fleet upgrades to see how much of a difference it makes.”
8/10 – Vince Paone, Dads Gaming Addiction

To be honest, this game was surprisingly good. I wasn't expecting this much fun from a game that costs $2.99 (not including the discount!) It's scaled very well, and despite being a multiplatform release, looks pretty good on pc and does give you the choice of using a keyboard, a mouse, or a combination of the two. The enemies aren't stupid and winning on normal can often be a challenge depending on what faction you are versing, and hard is actually pretty challenging. Also, the research and upgrading tab means you can actually use different strategies and it isn't just the same game over and over. And finally, the idea for a "Scrambled" faction is brilliant!

And if you're looking for a more indepth look at the game, here's a link to an approximately 20 minute video that looks at multiple modes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQ83YypDxdM&feature=youtu.be

I've had the chance to see this game come through development, from when it first hit the digital shelves of Desura to now. Funadmentally, it's always been a great 1-on-1 RTS battle arena game, but over time it's become it's become a very clever little game that can sometimes take real strategy to succeed at. The addition of multiplayer is fantastic and once I finish the campaign will hit hard as I can't wait to go up against real opponents. A quality time sink that I recommend to all strategy fans.

Pretty neat strategy game! You don't directly control your units but you have abilities and controls the unit buil flow. There is no base building either but a research tree for upgrades and unlocking ships, plus an extensive upgrade shop to improve the armies. Kind of like a tower defense, minus the towers so it's more like fleet attack+mothership defense. All in all, I was missing PC strategy games so variants in the genre are always welcomed.

Some of the battles feel like massive wars of attrition where you desperately upgrade and send ships non stop at lightning speed clicks. Stuff can get fairly intense as you realise the enemy is pushing to your side and fending off your fleet.

Maybe it lacks the depth of other strategy titles but for the asking price it's hard to say no.

Well, this game is a bit hard for me to recommend or not recommend. I enjoyed my time playing it, but after beating the main campaign and playing a few skirmishes, it leaves me with a thought in my mind that says, now what?

Obviously, multiplayer would be a grand option...but no one is active in the multiplayer, so unless you have friends who play this, it is unlikely you will ever find a real human to play against.

Replaying the campaign doesn't change anything either besides getting a better high score. Sigh...

So after 3.5 hours, it appears I have maxed out my time with Aeon Command. A game I thoroughly enjoyed playing but ended up short with little replayability.

Even after all that, the game is priced fairly and is something I can see improving if the Dev ever decides to revisit this game. I did enjoy my time with this game. I did like this game. But, there isn't much to do after beating the 2 hour long campaign. This game is for those who want to play a game for a few hours and then ultimately move on to other games in their inventory. A good distraction.

To be honest, I wouldn't have bought this game were it not for the huge discount I got for it. So I went into it not much expecting, but I am getting some pleasant surprises. Don't expect anything fancy from graphics or sound - they do the job, but that's it. As for so many Indie games, this one is all about the gameplay.
Basically, this is a tower defense game: you have to gather resources (happens automatically), build ever more powerful units, and research upgrades for them. With these spaceships, the goal is to reach the mothership of your opponent, at the other side of the playfield, while at the same time defending your own mothership against incoming attacks.
Since there is only one path between the two bases, most of the time the two opposing fleets meet somewhere in between, slowly (or faster if you're good) progressing towards the enemy's side. There is not much more to it: the core gameplay is dead simple, but it has something about it that keeps the attention going. One does have to make important and micro-strategic decisions: does one invest the resources gathered into new ships, or rather into upgrades? And there is a neat supra research-tree, which allows you to spend resource points that affects all or any of the three factions in the game.

Part of the attraction of the game surely lies in the excellent way it is embedded in the Steam cloud, with achievements, trading cards, multiplayer options, rankings, etc. Name it, and this game has it. So for the moment I want to try going up on the ladder, or win my first multiplayer. It's a simple game, but it does what it wants to do pretty good.

Gameplay: 21/30
Graphics: 10/20
Sound: 5/10
Longelivety: 14/20 (MP looks promising)
Technical: 6/10 (I had one very bad crash after exiting)
Personal rating: 6/10

Overall socre: 62/100

60-70/100: a good game, worth purchasing if in discount or if you like the genre
