  • Commandos III

    Anyone play Commandos? I've played most of the levels o BCD, BEL, MoC, its a great game genre.

    Was wondering if anyone else is looking forward to the release of the 3rd generation next summer and if anyone knows of any similar style games?

    I haven't played Commandos before. Is it really that good?

      I think so. Its one of my favourite games.

      The characters, the maps, the strategy all excellent, and combined into a real-time game. The only disadvantage is you have to save several times a mission if you have a tendency to die.

      Shooting Nazi soldiers in the back of the head with a sniper rifle is fun. Driving around in tanks and running over Nazi soldiers is even better.

          For less than $20 from most retail outlets C2 is well worth it.

          You must be advised that patience is a virtue in getting to understand the game - I was always getting killed very early on. But if the game was easy it would be no fun!

            If you want a game similar to Commandos, the only ones that I can think of are Fallout Tactics & Star Trek: Away Team.

            I'll have to see if I can pick up, Commandos 2. It sounds like fun.

              My experience of Star-Trek games is that they focus more on making it Trekkie than making it playable.

              I'll certainly look at fallout tactics.

                I've played commandos. I found it extremelly hard. I almost gave up several times.

                There is another game just like called Desperados. Same style but set in the far-west.
                'There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way. The war we fight is not against powers and principalities, it is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope, the death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender. The future is all around us, waiting, in moments of transition, to be born in moments of revelation. No one knows the shape of that future or where it will take us. We know only that it is always born in pain.'"
                G'Kar - from Babylon 5 episode "Z'ha'dum"

                  1. it is a difficult game!!!, but great fun.

                  2. Commando's 2 should be dropping in price any day now, might have allready
                  So don't pay full price for it
                  Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing?

                    I played Commandos1 and loved it, now i'm waiting for 2 to drop in price.
                    So they're making part 3 now, should be interesting.

                    And i have only played the FO:Tactics demo, but it was very good, also got a mission editor and an active community from what i understand, so it would be worth to buy it....i know i'll buy it if i see it around in stores here, with a good discount offcourse

                      I played the first one and although it was difficult it was fun. I bought the second one when it first came out (a while back) but the my PC is not all that fast and I stopped playing until I get a new PC !

                        Sagacious Dolphin:
                        There's a game that looks very very similar to Commandos, only using Robin Hood characters and settings.

                        Get the demo from here:
                        http://www.pcgameworld.com/details.php/id/3277

                        I've been meaning to download this game for days, but haven't got around to it yet.
                        If I'm posting here then Counterglow must be down.

                          FO:Tactics is a crap. I wasn't able to force myself to finish last 2 or 3 missions. It's boring. They raped idea of Fallout

                          Sagacious Dolphin,
                          Desperados have more similar things with Commandos then FOT. It's Commandos on Far-West. If you like Commandos (I don't) you will like it.

                            I tried commandos 1, two times, but I never got started, since I quickly lost my interest...I like that type of games...but I don't think WW2 (or which war it was about) interesting at all...

                            Now Desperados was a great game, it took me no time to get to like that game, I really love that western time for a game like that

                            I wish they would make a Desperados 2...
                            This space is empty... or is it?

                              I've only played Commandos 2, great game. I never did finsih it though... one of the best thigns about it is how can it be so difficult, but in a fun way. (I find that most games make it difficult simply by making it more frustrating or annoying to do things, in Commandos it's mostly a matter of your own strategies)

                              Jagged Alliance is the next best thing to Commandos, only it's turn-based.
