Brothers in Arms has a very similar play style. WWII squad-based shooter, your commands are pretty much limited to telling teams to take cover, provide cover fire, retreat, and assault. As you progress you can command several teams at once.

I have been playing the heck out of Mass Effect.
I have never been very good at tactical/squad type shooter games...I am just too old I guess and do not have the reflexes to keep up it seems.
Anyhow, I realize the combat in ME is pretty simple when compared to others but for me it worked well, was fun and did not frustrate me.
I liked being able to essentially pause the action by holding either the weapon or talent select wheels. It let me think what I wanted to do, who I wanted to do it and on what I wanted it done on without getting frustrated and overrun.
I liked using the Sniper Rifle =P
Are there any other XBOX 360 shooter/squad games that have a similar type of combat system? Tactical Shooter for Idiots perhaps? =P
I honestly have stayed away from the likes of COD and such cause ever since way back in the Quake, Unreal days I could never get the hang of FPS and was just frustrating.

Graw 1,2 and Rainbow Six Vegas. It has a cover system and you get full control of your squad.
