Voice Commander: Play this game on the Xbox One with your voice

If there's only one game you should play today on your Xbox One, it should be Voice Commander. It's a fast paced, space themed, top-down shooter, but a lot of the gameplay relies on your voice. We've been playing it for a bit already. Check out our gameplay video.

You can move a tiny ship with your Xbox One controller, but the big weapons are controlled by your voice. You can build different turrets on four different locations on Earth. An example command would be, "build laser turret in Alpha quadrant," but that can be shortened to "build laser turret Alpha." You can also move a bigger ship, called Vox, which flies just above Earth. A sample command is, "Vox move Delta."

There are other commands available to help you stop the relentless attacks. You can use shockwaves, nukes, and gravity bombs, and missile blasts.

Voice Commander can be played with up to eight controllers, and anyone in the room can issue voice commands. It's definitely a unique experience on the Xbox One. Since it is a free download, there's no reason not to check it out.
