    I just love this series (Behind Enemy Lines and Beyond The Call of Duty). This is the best 2D game in real-time tactics genre. WonderfulI just love this series (Behind Enemy Lines and Beyond The Call of Duty). This is the best 2D game in real-time tactics genre. Wonderful game-play and awesome storyline without modern day's heavy graphics. Each mission can be played in various ways depending on how you would like to use different character. These are the reasons why the series is still alive in era of games with extensive graphic consuming 3D rendering stuffs. Expand

    Please check my review in "Commandos: beyond the call of duty". That review applies here too. Overall, a good game with strong plot in eachPlease check my review in "Commandos: beyond the call of duty". That review applies here too. Overall, a good game with strong plot in each episode. If you are not the kind to enjoy first-person-shooter game and want to immerse yourself to WWII environment, then this is the game for you. Remember, that the graphics is as good as you can get during the period of 1998-99, and it requires patience and effort to deal with each episode in the game. Please check the screenshots in Google image to find out whether you would really like to play this kind of game. Personally, I recommend this game. Expand

It's got the feel of a strategy game without the complexity of micro-management. The variety of different tactics that you can use on each map make this game feel incredibly deep and well thought out. Despite its age, the game play is highly enjoyable and fans of 2D isometric maps will find that the landscapes and units are still well detailed and crisp, even at the low resolutions the game offers.

It reminds Jagged Alliance 2 but works in real time, and you can't issue orders in pause. Usually you need to come to enemies from behind, learn their patrol routes, and track their fields of view which the game shows as green cones. The graphics were great for the time and have aged well. The sounds and the music are good.

    Giving it only 7 out of 10 because the game is extremely difficult and gets frustrating in later missions just because you fail to give orders fast enough. Also, some missions are puzzle-like and require a certain strategy to be won, and this strategy must be executed with precise timing.
