  1. The closest you’re going to get to a realistic war simulation. Oh yes there’s no doubt about it we’ve been waiting for Commando’s 2 for a long time and now it’s finally here we’re far from disappointed.

    The non-linear mission design and freeform gameplay mechanics allow for some truly imaginative play.
  3. An underwhelming conversion can't quite obscure its brilliance. [XGamer]

    It's definitely not for the uninitiated. [Nov 2002, p.125]

    To describe the series of menus used here as "labyrinthine" would be to horribly oversimplify labyrinths. [Winter 2002, p.102]

    A good concept, a good game on PC, but really frustrating on Xbox.
  7. 40
    Frustratingly difficult, and even knowing what you need to do to succeed doesn’t mean you will, thanks to a horrible in-game map and unintuitive and difficult controls.

    Good Game! graphics are impressives and sounds are better than gommandos 1, but it's little bittle too difficult.
