Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3
8 May 2009
Conclusion: Whatever is expected from a game like this, to this player, the engagement of the dual-analog action above all else did its job admirably. One of the game's central gameplay hooks invites you to keep a combo meter building as long as you don't get hit; it's been a long time since I felt such an intense frustration losing a hit-string like this, my character grunting along with my frustration—and for that alone, Commando 3 carried me and my co-op friend to a satisfied...
Excerpt: Wolf of the Battlefield comes with the option of playing the beta of the upcoming Super Street Fighter II: HD Remix . Generally, when you pair a game with a completely unrelated demo like this, it's to shore up the chance that the game will actually see some sales. You saw it, for example, when Konami packaged a Metal Gear Solid 2 demo with Zone of the Enders , thus guaranteeing that certain particularly fanatic gamers would purchase the latter simply because of the...
Conclusion: Final Score - 3/5 Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 has a decent bit to offer but the weak story, short campaign, and overall age make it hard to justify for the 800 MSP price point. If you do have the MSP to spend though, it is a quirky and fun game to co-op with some friends and add a decently easy completion to your trophy case.
Excerpt: Xbox LIVE arcade is an area where some gamers overlook the content available. However, I find that this area is a great place to replay and enjoy some of the titles that loads of us gamers grew up with. Many old school games see re-release or an updating of some kind on Xbox LIVE arcade. Capcom is one company who has taken a liking to Xbox LIVE Arcade and they have used it to release various titles to the masses.
Excerpt: This isn't necessarily indicative of a lack of quality, but it's a warning sign. In Wolf of the Battlefield 's case, it should serve as a giant blaring red light. It has excellent production values and is clearly the product of a bunch of talented people who knew what they were doing, but it has a major technical flaw that keeps me from being able to recommend it.
Excerpt: Most developers are perfectly content releasing ultra-realistic games that engulf us in a three-dimensional environment. Kicked to the curb are the mindless, yet insanely fun arcade action titles that will keep you dusting bad guys as if you were John Rambo circa 1985. Xbox Live and PSN have been great outlets for developers that care, to make smaller yet highly entertaining games like there were in the good ole� days.
Excerpt: Raise your hand if you remember the original Commando . Itâ€™s OK, folks. I wasnâ€™t even alive when this arcade classic launched back in 1985. But now, thanks to Backbone Entertainment, we have the opportunity to play the latest installment in this venerated series, Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 .
Summary: With all of the excitement surrounding Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and Bionic Commando Rearmed, it's easy to forget that Capcom has other retro resurrections in store for the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. That's right, later on this year the company intends to release their first 194X game in close to a decade, and just last week Capcom released Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3, the long-awaited third installment in the Commando/MERCS franchise.
