"To change the course of history..."
A excellent sequel from Pyros Studios of Spain, the makers of Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines and the expansion, Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty. This game has greatly improved since the days that I've played Beyond the Call of Duty, but not Behind Enemy Lines. This should be a game worth playing in your PCs. Hope that they can still stick to this for the next sequel. The game is also out on the Sony Playstation 2 and the Microsoft Xbox.
The Commandos, consisting of Tiny, Duke, Fins, Inferno, Spooky and Tread, has brought infamy to the Axis Powers and victory to the Allied Powers in the early years of World War II. But Adolf Hitler of Germany, Benito Mussolini of Italy and Hideki Tojo of Japan has sworn to stand up against the team and bring swift rule over other inferior countries. Worried about this, the Allies has recruited Lupin from France, Natasha from the Soviet Union and Whiskey the dog to join up with the Commandos to further bring mayhem to the enemy behind enemy lines in Europe, Asia and the Pacific area.
With a remake on the game, the controls have been changed greatly as the first. Since Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines and its expansion, each of the Commandos now have their own special ability and their moves have been increased with more hot keys and also. As an option, you can choose to modify your hot key command for any item or any action, depending on your preference or your use.
Also improved, the audio of the game now has a World War II music and theme to it. The voice overs are now better, meaning that each character is unique. Not only that, but the cutscenes of the game are also improved. Each cutscene after each stage is realistic. Better than the first game. From each part of the video in each cutscene, it's been drawn accurately to every detail.
Worth the while!!!!! It's up to you to decide which is the best route to use to solve each mission given to you. While there are certain routes that are used to avoid the enemy and finish the mission in time, there are also certain routes that you can use to explore each area and clear them of enemies before you can strike down the main objective/s of each mission in the game. The only best thing to do is to experiment and find out which is the best route for you.
