Description

A real-time strategy (RTS) set in the STAR WARS universe, Force Commander is fully 3D , both the environment and the units. This allows for full camera control which let's you see the action from any point. The innovative command system replaces 'harvesting' resources the norm in most RTS's rewarding you with points toward purchasing units as you accomplish mission goals. The game follows the life of Lt. Brenn Tantor a young officer in the Imperial Army, who after just graduating is assigned the task of finding 2 droids on tantooine. Brenn after becoming dissatisfied with the Empire joins the Rebellion. Battles take place on 9 planets each with it's own unique environments.
