A better but easier game than its predecessorabelfs | Jan. 14, 2013 | See all abelfs's reviews »
One of the best games that I have ever played of its genre. And it is a Spanish creation (yes, I am from Spain). There's this excellent aura that works well with pretty graphics for 2.5D and its level of difficulty. There's nothing more fun than setting up a plan and killing a myriad of enemies. Once you find out how manage with the new controls, you'll find that the game is easier than the first Commandos. First, you have to accept that this isn't a rambo style game but more of a stealth and conquer. Design gets a 9 for the time it was made. The OST is incredible.. Gameplay is fluid and not restrictive for 2.5D. Plot is average, like all 2nd World War based games, but it pans out nicely. Highly recommendable.

Commandos is a fairly unique game in that it's a real time tactics game where your group of units are trapped deep behind enemy lines. You are outnumbered and outgunned. Stealth plays a HUGE part here. If you get involved in straight up gun-fights then your chances of getting out alive becomes pretty minimal. Rather, you have to observe the enemy soldiers, set traps or distractions and kill silently or just plain avoid the guards. Then you must make your way to accomplish objectives such as rescuing somebody, blowing up certain structures or installations, etc.
It can be difficult, but if you're patient and clever in your tactics you will be rewarded. Highly recommended.

Continuation of a great tactical game series, in which we control a group of commandos. Each of the men has a distinct skill, so it is necessary to close cooperation. This time, developers have prepared ten missions located in different locations (Europe, Africa, etc.). The novelty is fighting inside buildings and objects, for example, the possibility to exchange between team members.

Commandos 2 is a very particular strategic game. In each mission you must command a few soldier and you must use their unique abilities in the best way to reach your objectives. The mission are very long and hard but amazing and a good variety of objectives. The collectibles present in each level represent and extra challenge during the level: if you get all these collectibles you can even unlock bonus levels. Commandos 2 is the game to buy if you like strategic games and you want to find a good challenge

Looking for some old-school RTS action? Commandos 2 is your ticket! Placing your guys where they can do the most damage, yet stay unnoticed is unbelievably fun. Letting them rip apart objectives is fun in its own right, and their personalities just add to the obvious care the devs took when crafting this game.
Graphically, the game is very well-detailed for its age, and you'll often find yourself just looking around at the scenery before and after completing a mission. Commandos 2 manages to have its own style, without varying too much from the ton of other RTS war games that came out around the same time.
The voice overs for your squad are great, and you can tell each person gave it their all during the recordings. The characters become much more unique and real with them, unlike the usual Mr. Monotone most games seem to employ.
I cannot recommend this game enough - you just have to play it!
