Description: Airship Commander is my attempt to cram together a Wing Commander inspired mission structure, with the multi-station B-17 bomber sim popular in 1990s. Except with airships. Over a steampunk mega city one. The game is all about doing what VR does well. Namely move slowly, communicate a tremendous sense of scale, and have all kinds of wild spectacle occurring around the player at different distances.

Review: I have to say Airship Commander is better than I would have thought, but also not as good as I would have liked. Flying above a city while the battle rages all around you is nice and graphically it’s not a bad game at all. It just lacks a little in gameplay department which also meant that it wasn’t as immersive as I would have liked. The games itself is OK I suppose, probably not worth the full asking price, but getting in a sale will solve that problem. I just feel that it isn’t as polish, as finished as I would have liked it to be, but still worth a look I suppose if you can get it on the cheap.
