"One of the best Commandos clones (squad based top down stealth game). If that sounds appealing to you and you havent played it yet, give it a try."

Great game. I've sent countless hours playing this years ago.

Almost all negative reviews are related to compatibility issues with newer computers, so be aware that you'll need to manually tweak it. You can find solutions in the Steam Forums.

Once you've done it, just sit back and enjoy this classic

I guess it's a good game for those who like stealth games. I don't. (And it wasn't tagged as stealth when I bought it >.> ) Seeing how old game it is, I found the graphics good and the controls surprisingly user-friendly.

Re all the negative reviews: fwiw I didn't have any problem running it on Win 7 x64.

This game is great once you have fixed all the bugs which can take a while.
These are things which make the game terrible. (cons)
With the game 13 years old the graphics are not good when zoomed in fully or in fact zoomed out fully.
The difficulty levels are okay but still bad. What I mean is that on easy it takes one swipe of the mouse to kill 15 guards at once this is stupid. However, on medium difficulty you have the same amount of health and you cannot regenerate health but the enemy have 40 more hit-points and do 1.5 times as much damage to you. This makes the late game incredible hard. I haven't tried the game on hard difficulty yet.
The settings of the game are very minimalistic.

However, what makes the game good (pros)
The price of the game is dirt cheap on sales now.
Takes a little amount of memory.
Can run on any system with modding the game slightly.
If you have played this game before like me the game brings a lot of nostalgia which is good.
There aren't that many strategy games which have the same feel as this game gives off.

In conclusion, I would recommend this game to those who have played this game before and are willing to do research on getting the game working on modern systems. However, if you are new to this game the effort in fixing the game may not be worth it to play the game for 10-20 hours (on easy difficulty).



For those who like numbers at the end of a review I would give the game 7.5/10.
