    At first a had a lot of fun playing this. But after a while I noticed that this is an arcade game all the way. So you can't save between levels, you have to finish the game from start to end in one go. Who has the time for that these days? And it's a very difficult game too. Also, it's kind of repetitive so I would have enjoyed playing this in short bursts, that's not possible though.

    Perfectly executed old-school action game. If you want to get your money's worth out of this one, then start out on the 4-star difficulty. Dont play the easy difficulty, because you will beat it on your first try and ruin the fun. It is just how classic commando was, 3 lives then GAME OVER. No continue or any of that fairy stuff. Its game over, you start from the beginning.Perfectly executed old-school action game. If you want to get your money's worth out of this one, then start out on the 4-star difficulty.

    Enjoyable online mult-player and good retro fun with onscreen action that gets manic sometime (especially with 3 player) - shame on the person who gave it 0 out of 10 (first vote), that's really an abuse of the voting system, there are plenty of things to elevate it above 0, even if it's not your cup of tea.

    8/10from me - best played with others but retro fun even in single player.

    The nostalgia of the Commando name isn’t enough to carry this one beyond the ordinary, and the lackluster graphics and generic art style don't help either. As arcade shooters go, Commando 3 isn’t a bad game, but it's just nothing special.
  2. It does what the team seems to have wanted it to do fairly well, if not a bit unimaginatively.

    The game presentation feels dated with generic graphics and music taken straight from an 80's Stallone action flick. The driving mechanics are poor, with the driving sections feeling like rushed add-ons. But most disappointing is the game's repetition.
