Dive into the ultimate single-player space sim with multiple career paths, engaging gameplay mechanics, and diversified missions ranging from exciting space battles to an authentic, sandbox RPG experience. Depending on your preferences, you can choose between building a safe yet pedestrian trader career, the honorable, action-packed role of a space ranger, or the profitable but dangerous life of a mobster. Whatever you choose, make sure to excel, gather reputation points for your actions, and obtain access to the most challenging and best-paid missions. The more money you earn, the better (and bigger!) space fleet you’ll be able to build, consisting of fast and maneuverable fighters, heavy bombers, and large transporters. All can be built according to your needs and customized to reflect your play style. Making the right choices will be crucial to ensuring the success of your missions. Aside from choosing the best ship for the job, you need to manage fuel usage, choose the best trading or smuggling routes, and even buy your own space stations that will allow you to explore the furthest corners of the galaxy. In the end, becoming a true space commander, whether pursuing a legal or not-so-legal career, requires skills, money, and luck. So tell me, rookie, do you have what it takes to achieve ultimate galactic dominance? BECOME THE BEST SPACE COMMANDER OUT THERE: • Buy fighters, bombers, and transporters, customize them according to your needs, and build the biggest space fleet around. • Pursue a mercenary, trader, or mobster career depending on your personal preferences and play style. • Explore the furthest corners of the galaxy thanks to the in-game expanse module generating countless star systems waiting for your discovery. • Get involved in a corporate war or fight aliens in multiple, diversified campaign scenarios.

Space Commander: War and Trade makes the transition from mobile to console without considering what changes would make the game more palatable for console players. A very basic trading system, a fiddly map, and super simple space combat all add up to an experience that underwhelms. There is a lot going on in Space Commander, but not very much of it is fun.

Space Commander: War and Trade can be enjoyable for genre enthusiasts and people who really like some commerce mixed into their space-sim adventures. For the more action-oriented player, however, this one can become a bit of a grind. Good effort, but not what I would call a must-have game.

All the pieces are here for an excellent entry level space sim but the horrible economy just drags the entire experience to a halt and makes it feel like much more of a grind than it ought to be. With some very small changes Space Commander could be excellent. As is, it will have some appeal to enthusiasts like myself, but for most there will be other space sims on Switch that will scratch the same itch much better.

Space Commander: War and Trade isn't bad. If there's one thing that can be said about mobile games, it's that developers are hugely incentivised to make sure players enjoy what they're looking at, and there's no possibility of being frustrated by the gameplay. The core mechanical elements are rock-solid, and transfer over to the Switch well. The game's biggest problem is the setting. Space should be an exotic location filled with adventure and discovery. That entire experience in Space Commander is truncated to the point that it loses that essential quality, leaving the overall experience feeling quite hollow.
