Summary: This is a high quality game that needs a lot of time and brain work. If you want a major explosive gun touting game then this is not for you. This game requires you to think about what you're doing because if you go in all guns blazing you get killed basically. It's about stelth, cunning, deception and a whole lot of thought. The graphics are not bad, but i am playing this on a 360 so am more used to better graphics.
Summary: When I picked this game up of the shelf the guy stood by me said 'I wouldn't bother with that game. Its impossible. I did the first few levels, then it got ridiculous. I took it back'. I thought, 'what does he know!', waited until he went ,and then I bought it. I'm only an average game player, but I like a challenge and don't normally give up. You guessed it; I gave up and took it back. Ok, the first 2 or 3 starter levels are excellent and just what I expected.
Summary: To sum this up in one word - challenging! The graphics are ok - a little dated. The controls are complex but there is so much variety to the gameplay. However, it is hard, you need to spend lots of time to get into it, no 10 minute blasts with this one. For one I am struggling to get into it. It's difficult is both it's best feature and biggest drawback - perhaps that means it is about right.
Summary: Commandos 2 is a game full of tactical finesse, sneaking around different countries around the room, and completing testing targets set for your elite group of soldiers. Set in World war 2, your commandos travel the world, from Burma to La Rochelle, from Paris to Savo island. The characters include the Green Beret, the Sapper, the Spy, the Seductress, the Thief, The Sniper, The Driver and the Diver. Each has their own skills and strengths.
Summary: I'd assumed that this would be a phenomenal game. Unfortunately, it isn't. For me, the frustrations outweigh the paltry rewards of success. In the main, it's a process of trial and error. The user interface does not lend itself to the Xbox controller and perhaps it's just my TV but the graphics are not intuitive or differentiated enough to be easily used.
Summary: Quite simply the best action/strategy game on the x-box. The freedom to interact with the environments plus the control you are afforded over your team is very impressive. Furthermore the environments are very atmospheric and lend a believable degree of authenticity to the experience. This coupled with a gripping musical score really adds to what, at most times, is a very suspenseful game.
Summary: I played the original Commandos on the PC and loved it. It had that elusive mix that makes a great game, blending addictive gameplay and atmosphere. The XBOX version does not disappoint. At first the controls are on the fiddly side but they soon become second nature. BUT BE WARNED this game is hard, very hard and can be frustrating. However you can't help going back time and time again to try a new approach. That brings me nicely to another good feature.
Summary: I've had my Xbox for a month now, and having bought it with Halo (which I'm sure you've been told, every Xbox owner should have), I wanted to treat myself to a new game. After looking at other Xbox titles and being un-convinced, I decided to splash out on the quite superb Commandos 2. As the blurge above says, you are in charge of a group of Commandos, undermining the Nazis War efforts during WWII.
Summary: What a game, great grahics and amazing gameplay. There seems to be no limit to what you can do, with endless tactics and amazing options, you will be playing this game for hours! It's not the sort of game that you continuolsy play for hours upon hours as you get tired of retrying to complete the levels, but you will be picking up that controller again and again for another challenge! It isnt the easiest game, but thats what makes it so addictive!
Summary: For this game you need 3 things 1.patience 2.stealth and 3.half a brain. This game is VERY hard and at times a bit frustrating it took me a few days of working just to complete one level unlike some games out there it is not a good idea to run in guns blazing as youll end up dead for sure. This is a great game with brilliant graphics and well worth buying if youre looking for a challlenge.
