Toy Commander

Posted on

The plot sounds suspiciously familiar: Diminutive toys with minds of their own run rampant in a house that’s relatively larger than life. But Commander isn’t just another toy story. The plot is more edgy than the Pixar film: You control a battalion of miniature aircraft, trucks, and plastic soldiers to thwart a renegade band of toys, led by Huggy Bear, a Gatling-gun-carrying teddy. Commander’s best feature is the whimsically domestic nature of its gameplay: Typical missions include dropping eggs in a pot of water and sinking enemy subs in a pastel bathtub. Martha Stewart would definitely approve. B+
