  • Summary: In the most fearsome war ever fought, emerged the most fearless soldiers – the Commandos. Have you got what it takes to join the original elite Special Force in the World War II shooter Commandos Strike Force? In a new direction for the multi-million selling series, Commandos Strike Force takes you right into the heart of the action from a first person perspective. Take control of the three members of the Strike Force unit, each with their own play style. Switch between the Green Beret, always at the heart of the action with his expertise in combat and the use of heavy weaponry; the Sniper with his nerves of steel and expert marksmanship; and the Spy, stealthily striking at the heart of the enemy. However, it is your choice how you execute plans of attack by using the Commandos' unique skills. Set in war torn Europe amid the backdrop of World War II, you must take your highly trained group on a series of daring missions, deep behind enemy lines in France, Norway and Russia. Taking control of a Nazi-occupied town, freeing French Resistance prisoners and kidnapping a general are a few of the large range of missions. As well as a compelling single player campaign, the game features a variety of online multiplayer modes. [Eidos Interactive] Expand

    I'd say that fans of the series ought to check this one out, but those of us who've gotten spoiled by Brothers in Arms and Call of Duty will only see glimpses of that intensity and cinema.
  2. Serving in the same unit as "Brother in Arms" and "Call of Duty", Strike Force just doesn't make the grade. [Mar 2006, p.92]
  3. The technical aspects are weak, too: The engine's rough, and the framerate fluctuates a bit too much. [May 2006, p.75]
  4. Though based on a great series of innovative tactical action/puzzle games, Commandos Strike Force comes off as just another middling World War II shooter, despite some good ideas.
  5. 55
    Dull, ugly, and completely lacking in charm; only a glutton for punishment would enjoy Commandos Strike force. [Apr 2006, p.86]
  6. The over the top acting would have been a welcome release, but the poor sound and graphical presentation just put a bullet in it.
  7. A fantastic idea ruined by ugly graphics, a shaky framerate, and bizarre design elements. [May 2006, p.80]

    Commandos Strike Force strays away from its roots but still provides a solid experience that offers a great alternative to all the straight up shooters.

    In contrast to other shooters you're actually encouraged to think of a strategy in order to complete each mission successfully.
    You're able to swap between up to three different soldiers (Spy, Sniper and Green Beret) each with their own useful abilities and weapons.
    Most fun is to be had with the Spy who enables you to throw knives, strangle enemies with a cord and put on their uniform. Nothing beats strutting around in a Gestapo uniform and making other soldiers salute you.

    The story, graphics and voice acting aren't exactly great but it honestly doesn't matter when the gameplay is this enjoyable.

    IT is a really fun game i just got it and its a blast, the only thing that i dident like was the fact that there is no good directions u start and your like 'what do i do ' ? the other thing is sometimes it can be hard and you could need help and you dont get it like i think that hapens in the 5th mission thats the hared part to me but other than that it is a great game.

    This isnt the best game, but i can find nothing wrong with blowing holes in Nazi's heads. I only played the demo, but it was fun. The framerate is very bad, the graphics aren't the best but it's still fun. Expand
