Command: Shifting Sands Gameplay Review

I'm playing Command: Shifting Sands, a real-time military strategy game by Warfare Sims and Slitherine.



The game functions as either an expansion to the original game that was released in 2013 or a standalone title, albeit without the ability to use the editor or enjoy the plentiful scenarios from Steam Workshop. Shifting Sands includes 17 scenarios of varying difficulties and complexities set in the Middle East, most of which are well designed with variety and surprises, and crafted a notch above the typical user-made mission. Command: Shifting Sands serves as a good introduction to the game mechanics of the series if you don’t feel like spending the exorbitant price on the entire game (though you probably should anyway).
