Before that, you could fake it with an image of a colored button with a transparent command button over it.  I remember doing that many versions ago.  It still works in Access 2003 -- just checked.

you can only do that in access2010

select the command button
click Format from the Form design Tab in the ribbon

in the Control Formatting
select the color you want from the Shape Fill drop down

you also have other choices like
Quick styles
Change shape
