Commandos: Strike Force Review

VideoGamer.com
9 October 2006
  • Excerpt: Commandos Strike Force is something of a departure for this popular series. In the past it was a fairly complex squad-based game with a World War II setting. Your three-man squad, comprising of a Spy, Green Beret and a Sniper, combined with local forces to take on the evil Nazis in top-down strategy style. In Strike Force you take control of the same three-man squad and once again combine with local forces to take on the evil Nazis and their nefarious warmongering.

Commandos Strike Force

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Commandos: Strike Force may not push the graphical limits of the PS2, but it does provide enough texture, color and shading to successfully create mood. Like so many World War II simulations before it, CSF relies upon a bleak, almost washed-out appearance to portray the ambience of the depressing event that it’s based on.

  • Excerpt: A World War II, first person shooter, Commandos: Strike Force has you playing as three different characters, one at a time... Sounds great, sounds diverse, sounds like multi-tasking warmonger heaven. Alas, it ain't.

  • Conclusion: You know, it's sad to say, if Commandos Strike Force came out three to four years ago it would have been a lot better. As it stands the game feels underdeveloped in just about every regard. It has a lot of nice elements and it even carries over some of the feel of the Commandos series, but when you take everything into consideration it feels dated and outclassed by the competition. That's just the nature of business I suppose.

  • Conclusion: Pyro took a game that approached an already crowded time period in a different perspective and crammed it into a presentation that actually hurts what they did in the past. It's a novel experiement, but for a first time out, it's not quite worth playing.

  • Conclusion: Commandos Strike Force isn't a bad game...it's just similar to but worse than a large number of other World War II shooters. Its main distinguishing features--the ability to control a couple of soldiers through open-ended levels--aren't all that remarkable, and the core action doesn't cut it either. Consider this one a casualty.
  • Pros: Successfully applies some elements from the Commandos strategy games, Fairly open-ended levels let you tackle objectives out of order.
  • Cons: Disappointingly dumb enemy artificial intelligence, Missions often boil down to trial and error, Bland presentation, Multiplayer's nothing special and no one's playing it.

Commandos Strike Force Review

GameSpot
14 April 2006
  • Excerpt: The Commandos series dates back to 1998, and it was always a whole lot easier to like than it was to describe. While the Commandos trilogy looked and played like real-time strategy games, they combined tactical action and puzzlelike situations from an isometric perspective. The result was some tense, open-ended, and highly challenging scenarios. Now Commandos is back in--wait for it--a World War II-themed first-person shooter.
  • Pros: Successfully applies some elements from the Commandos strategy games, Fairly open-ended levels let you tackle objectives out of order
  • Cons: Disappointingly dumb enemy artificial intelligence, Missions often boil down to trial and error, Bland presentation, Multiplayer's nothing special and no one's playing it

  • Summary: Definitely one for the Commandos fans more than anyone else, but a decent play all the same. Keep an eye out for future releases.
