    This three-player scrolling shooter has that old-school, spray-and-slay mojo that your inner rageaholic craves. [July 2008, p.62]

    The change to an actual 3D engine has afforded the designers some flexibility in the layout and construction of the levels.

    Despite the minor flaws, I loved most every minute of Wolf of the Battlefield. This is a great game to pop in when you're sitting around with only a few minutes to spare, or when a couple of friends are looking for a quick way to kill some time.
  4. Wolf of the Battlefield succeeds. It's flashier, more detailed, more exciting and lets you play with friends while feeling a lot like Commando must have felt like way back before we knew any better.

    A nice step back to the glory days of arcade action where dying really meant starting over. If you are a fan of games that reward you for perseverance than this is your cup of tea. However, casual fans will quickly become frustrated with a lack of continue and a set number of lives.
  6. WOTB: Commando 3 blends the gameplay of both of its predecessors and makes a good stand against the other arcade shooters on the marketplace.

    Graphically solid, and an all around fun game, Commando 3 is definately worth a download for just about any gamer.
  8. Commando 3 is a great addition to your gaming library if you're aware of its merits and its faults before purchasing it. Dying isn't just something that happens every so often in this game, it's a way of life.
  9. Despite its short campaign and repetitive nature, Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 proves to be an exciting action game for one to three players.
  10. Three playable characters and plenty of secrets to find make this short game worthy of replaying, especially for multiplayer Co-Op games.
  11. Even with its short length, lack of proper bosses, and unimpressive leaderboards, Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 is the type of intense, man-tested Schwarzenegger-approved, dose of destruction that XBLA needs more of - it won’t replace AAA shooters like "Gears of War" or "Call of Duty 4," but it doesn’t have to. Sometimes a quick, callous display of military mayhem is all you need to feel like a hero.
  12. Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 is a short but fun ride.
