Summary

Shame about the bugs!

The Good

At the time Carrier Command was unique - it was the GTA of its day. As I remember there were four amphibious vehicles docked in your carrier, as well as jet planes, all of which could be programmed to carry out tasks or piloted directly. There was plenty of fun to be had just in banging around in these vehicles.

The Bad

Sadly the game crashed at random and fairly regularly, and furthermore it was nigh on impossible to win. If you sent any craft out on their own there was virtually no chance they would return and the best you could ever hope for is to conquer a couple of islands.

The Bottom Line

If only somebody could iron out the bugs and re-release this game I would be in heaven, but there's absolutely no chance of that and it will surely only live on in our memory!
