Do you love stealth and tactics?
Commandos 2 is an exponential improvement from the "Behind the Enemy Lines" and the expansion.
It's hard, it has many levels and it has great "replayabilty".

The only problem about this port to Steam are the resolution problems within the patch on newer OS.

Dig up a hole
Attract a enemy officcer so he falls in the hole
Kill every single soul on the map
Look for a key to open the door on every inch of the map
Give up to a faq after a entire hour searching for the key in vain
Learn that the officer in the hole, the only one that which you can't reach the body, has the key.
Rages up... Try again tomorrow.

10/10

this is legit one of the best games i own. it perfectly embodies the term "old but gold". there are no games even close to this that were recently released. developers just dont put as much time into making quality games nowadays

Probably the best game in Commandos series. The story is interesting, gameplay is fluid and quite good for the time it has been released. Last missions (Castle Colditz, Paris) are the best in the bunch.
It offers both ends of the stlye: one can play quietly, like a sneaky assasin, or just shoot at everybody.
The only objection I have is that if the resolution is higher than 640x480, the is a glitch (one second long break) between the gameplay and the menu. It's tolerable.

If you can get this game for cheap in a sale, I'd wholeheartedly recommend buying it.

Commandos 2: Men of Courage is the successor of Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines and its stand-alone expansion. This new installment features new characters with unique abilities, such as the French thief and the Russian seductress, and a loot system, much like what is seen in the Men of War games, and new maps of which some in the pacific against the Japanese. Fans of the previous Commandos games will love this title, if not more, despite maybe needing to use workarounds to get it working properly. That's unfortunately an illness among almost all Commandos games, that they haven't been optimised/readied to be used in modern systems. All-in-all a great game!
