  1. This three-player scrolling shooter has that old-school, spray-and-slay mojo that your inner rageaholic craves. [July 2008, p.62]
  2. WOTB: Commando 3 blends the gameplay of both of its predecessors and makes a good stand against the other arcade shooters on the marketplace.
  3. Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 is a short but fun ride.
  4. 70
    Commando 3: Wolf of the Battlefield doesn't break any new ground or blow away the competition, but it provides some no-fuss shooting fun.
  5. The only audience Commando 3 is likely to pull in are those who remember the originals fondly and wish to take a moment to go back to the games of their childhood. Quickly, these same people will remember that games of their childhood were awful by today's standards, and vow to never be suckered in again — at least until the next Contra remake comes out.
  6. By employing a bizarre range limitation to artificially enhance its difficulty, though, it means the game, if you'll forgive the alarmingly twee turn of phrase, shoots itself in the foot.
  7. There’s a real lack of enemy variety, as well.
