10This game is one of the best I have played, the reason I created a metacritic account and if you can overlook the dated graphics a truly rewarding experience. Single player alone would warrant the 10 rating however as co-operative with 2-3 friends it is astoundingly good and responsible for some of my most treasured gaming memories.
Recent mods can be downloaded to change the game and make it even more challenging... as if it wasnt challenging enough.
Hopefully if Commandos 4 is ever released it will draw from this legacy and not the disappointment that was Commandos 3.… Expand

Every mission has a lot of diversity and keeps you on the edge of your seats while playing.… Expand

Right now there ae similar better looking and at least as iunteresting games such as FallOut 2. If you are just thinking of buying this game--don't. If you are really curious, get the demo and see for your self.… Expand
