If you have nostalgia for the original you should get it yeah.
If you like current RTS's, both macro (like SupCom) or micro (like SC2), you probably won't like it. In Carrier Command you get a grand total of 8 units from two unit types. You customize them sure, but they are still two unit types.
Even if you feel no problem with the above you should wait a bit so they can patch out a lot of the bugs. Right now the pathfinding sucks. Yeah, the pathfinding in an RTS sucks.
Plus, it's singleplayer only.
