EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Star Wars: Commander is a combat strategy game that takes place in the Star Wars universe and features familiar Star Wars faces, places, and vehicles. Players choose which side of the galactic conflict that they want to play on, the Empire or Rebels. Whichever side is selected, you will build and maintain a base where you manage and train troop forces, which will be sent out to battle. Those battles take place in chapter-based missions against an AI opponent or against other real players of the game.

Is It Fun?

Commander allows Star Wars fans to interact with the Star Wars universe in a unique and engaging way. If you choose to work with the rebels, you will be able to call on characters from the movies like Han Solo and Princess Leia to help in battle. If you choose the Empire, you get to use awesome vehicles like AT-ATs and Tie-Fighters.

Who It’s For

The app is rated ages 9 and up for Infrequent and Mild Cartoon or Fantasy Violence. The game will probably appeal to Star Wars fans of all ages, including adults, who also like casual games.

What To Be Aware Of

The game is free to play with in-app purchases that range from $4.99 to $100. One of the most frequent reasons for spending money in the game is to rush jobs, like upgrading your base. The game can be fully enjoyed without spending money if you have the patience to wait.
