The second title to be released on the Xbox Live Arcade today is Sierra Online and Southend Interactive's Commanders: Attack of the Genos. It's a quite impressive strategy game with a story mode, and a Xbox Live mode for up to four players. The price is 800p, and inside we got some recorded gameplay and a trailer from it.

The music kind of destroys the mood. It's actually enough for me to not want to paly the game :P

I know Daniel, co-founder of Southend so I gotta say I'm just happy to see their game on the Arcade finally. It doesn't look like much, but I have to say I doubted Deathrow aswell but that turned out to be great.

This isn't a game that takes itself seriously. If you want that, play Command and Conquer.

The game is great, bought it right after playing the trial version.

The music is pretty cheesy, but luckily on the 360 you have the fantastic option of using your own soundtrack :)

Lol what are you guys on about? The music is good.

It seems TF2 spawned a wave of Cartoony looking war based games, i can say i wont be getting this one as it looks alot on the dull side.

lol

The notion that TF2 spawned colorful games always cracks me up. Have you like.. taken a look at VIDEOGAMES in the past three decades? Just because a game that people expected to be gritty turned around and went for something more traditionally consoley doesn't mean it *spawned* anything. Now Facebreaker *has to be a TF2 reaction* and people block out Ready 2 Rumble, Punchout and Victory Boxing (unless they can work in time travel in some way where those were influenced by TF2 too).

Also, a game isn't made in an afternoon. Southend were working on this - no kidding - back in 2005. Also, even when done it takes an eternity to get cleared for the arcade unless you're Capcom or Konami.

    GriftGFX They're going to wind up harming consumer friendly service models as much as they will punish the bad ones. And I feel like stuff like SWBF2 will be appropriately punished by the market. (1 Hour ago)
