A Masterpiece! Truly one of the most beautiful, well crafted and compelling games ever made. Brilliant characters and missions! I played it when it released in 2001, multiple times over the years, I played it again in 2015 and I'm sure I will revisit it in the future. This is a work of art!

For a game which turned 13 this year, it stands up incredibly well. It's probably the best game in the series, which began to lose something with Destination Berlin and lost it decisively with Strike Force. I'd highly recommend it to an fan of real-time strategy games.

Even now this game deserves to have a full price. I bought it from steam just because... I already have it 2-3 physical copies of it collected through the years. You can lose sleep playing all the commandos games. Definetly the most underrated (from the new generation) series ever. Beware though, some of them might require some mods to be able to play without problems on widescreens.

with different type of character combinations, you have multiply way to finish the game. and it means, high re-playability.

spent more than 37hours, and I haven't finish the game yet.

caution: for hardcore tactical strategy game fans only

In my opinion, the best in the series. Lots of improvements and add-ons from the sequels while still maintaining each commando's unique character, traits, uses, etc. Can be rather tricky if not played seriously enough, however.

I spent my entire evening beating the first tutorial, just like old times.

This, in my opinion, is the best Commandos game in the series followed by the third one. I played this about 14 years ago when it first came out and I am amazed that it works flawlessly with today’s hardware and OS. I’m playing it now on Windows 8.1 64-bit on my GTX 970 on a widescreen monitor and it runs like a charm. I need to mention those specifications because I read a few users having problems with those setup. Sure, the graphics are outdated but it’s the same good old Commandos game I enjoyed when I was a kid-hard but rewarding.

This game is one of the best of its kind. It’s worth every penny.

9/10

Commandos 2 is one of few examples, where a sequel of the game turns out at least just as good, if not better, then the original idea.
To be clear: if there is a single flaw of Commandos 2, compared to Commandos 1, it is low difficulty level.

In a nutshell:
  • the game is isometric sneaker strategy / logical game in real time,
  • World War 2 themed, British commandos fight against III Reich and ... Japan,
  • consists of ten regular missions, nine bonus missions (+1 regular mission 'bonus phase'), and two trainings,
  • roughly 20-40 hours to beat.

So what it is all about? The key idea remains the same:
  • player has 1-8 (usually 3-5) commandos to control
  • plays missions against 10-50 (sometimes 100+) soliders on the map
  • being outmumbered and outgeared, the player must use silent takedowns without setting off the alarm, at least for most part of the mission.
  • enemies have their own sight and hearing areas, most of the time the player approaches from behind, and in places which are isolated from another guards,
  • this usually requires luring the guard out from crawded area, distracting anoter patrolmen or combination of both,
  • all settled during the WW2, though with fictional history. One will for instance visit Asia and Pacific as a British commando.

The commandos 'specialise' in following areas:
  • a dirty job guy aka Green Beret, stealth and melee combat expert,
  • a sniper, one shot one kill, can collect ammo from enemies,
  • a diver, can swim unnoticed in deep water,
  • a sapper, demolition expert,
  • a driver, gunner and tank operator, also handles "exotic" weapons,
  • a spy, covert ops expert, can dusguise himself as an enemy and chat the guards,
  • a thief, sneaker but with limited combat abilities,
  • Natasha, spy / sniper equivalent (shows up in three missions, where European officer would be too suspicoius),
  • a dog, another distractor but is cool.
Compared to C1, all the commandos have shared set of skills, which includes:
  • shoting a gun, machine guns and rifles (except for sniper rifle),
  • stunning enemies with fist punch,
  • carrying bodies,
  • driving small cars,
  • swimming and (limited) diving,
  • using medpacks,
  • disguise as enemy solider (though only the Spy can do this efficiently),
  • distracting with cigarettes, decoy, etc.

The commandos no longer seem to be rookies.
This actually makes the game way easier, as a tight cooperation is no longer needed.
On the other hand this varied set of skills adds a lot of freedom into the game, and one no longer needs to stick with the Green Beret.

The game lost its deadly alarms and garrnison patrols, which were almost a signatue feature of the first part (and usually resulted in mission failure).
The enemies are far less aggressive and leave a large time margin of error before opening fire.
More then enough to get back to safety.
They are more susciptable for diversion and there are more ways to distract them.

So what did the game gained? Why it is still worth anything?
  • A lot of freedom.
  • A lot of equipment (compared to C1): smoke grenades, gas grenades, bottles of wine, sleeping pills, wire traps, landmines, bazookas, fresh meet (for guard dogs), binolucars.
  • Gun blazing is now more possible, but stealth actions remain a tactics of choice (plus it is fun with all those toys).
  • Possobility to explore and fight inside buildings.
  • Ten unique missions (+ a couple of bonus), every single one has something which makes it distinctive (including a mission with no killing, whose objective is to steal enemy documents).
  • Campaing progress menu, possiblility to replay a particular mission.
  • Bonus objective, and item collections which unlock bonus missions.

Commandos 2 introduced amazing (for its time 2001) interaction with the environment including:
  • daytime / night time (only one mission),
  • switch off the lights to hide in shadow,
  • frost (limited time to stay outside buildings, one mission only),
  • search the shelves and boxes for equipment,
  • enter and expore buildings,
  • get into the building through the door or windows,
  • sniper shot through the window,
  • climb a pole to move unnoticed,
  • hide corpses in a pile of thrash,
  • hide yourself under the table.

The game still offers quick save + load, still used quite frequently.
While it is a war game most of enemies can be stuned and knocked out without killing.
On top of that the missions are scored based on time taken, damage, exploration and stealth level, including mentioned nonlethal takedowns.

The game is almost 15 year old, and offers a maximum resolution of 1024 x 768, but on my 17'' notebook I find the video surprisingly good, mainly due to reasonable amount of details and limited 'graphical pattern reuse'.
The music is finally present in the game and sound effect seem also fine, don't distract a lot.

Flaws?
  • low-to-medium difficulty level (even "very hard" difficulty is a mid-game of Commandos 1),
  • The boxed Commandos 2 version featured short cienematics between the missions, which don't run in Steam version,
    I cannot tell if this is a common problem or just a config / codecs issue on my computer,
  • When scaled to 16:9 display, the graphics gets a bit pixelized.

Do not play if:
  • you are allergic to old games / hybrids / isometric cameras.


Do play if:
  • well... just play!

Ki ne ismerné ezt a sorozatot? Második világháború, náci megszállás.. és azok a bizonyos kommandósok. A Pyro fejlesztőbrigád evvel a résszel vált világhírűvé igazán, persze az első rész és kiegészítője is maradandó volt, főleg nehézségét tekintve. De ebben a részben az elődje negatívumait kiküszöbölték és újdonságokkal fűszerezték meg ezt a taktikai stratégiát. Új 3Ds motor hajtja a játékot, a 7 megismert katona mellett 2 új taggal bővült a létszám, melyek egyedi képességekkel rendelkeznek. A pályák hál isten ugyanolyan komplexek és kihívóak lettek mint azt megszokhattuk. Sőt a küldetések kiváló teljesítése után extra feladatokat is kaphatunk az adott pályán.

Before the review, I want to exclaim:
BUY COMMANDOS 2 IF YOU HAVE NEVER PLAYED ANY OF THE COMMANDOS GAMES.
Also, this game usually costs 1 $ or € throughout the Steam sales.

I remember when I was younger playing this game and how fun it was. Controlling commandos behind enemy lines. Stealth. Tactics. The experience was amazing and I am elated right now to play this game again.

The game's charm is in figuring out enemy's patterns, observing the environment, planning tactics and then carrying it all out. It is hard, but addicting and rewarding in the end. A simple act of throwing cigarette packs and then knocking out a soldier and tying him up, booby-trapping, throwing a bomb at a group of soldiers or disguising as an officer with a spy is satisfying.

The game is a little hard to get into at first, but after you really pass the two training levels, you are essentially ready to go.
VERY USEFUL TO KNOW: CTRL-S and CTRL-L for quicksave and quickload.

It was also released in 2002 so the game looks rough and doesn't support widescreen natively. To remedy this, you can pick up executables that fix this (https://sites.google.com/site/xbootx/home/commandos2), although very high resolutions might cause graphical glitches. There is also a mod called Destination Paris (http://commandoshq.net/c2dp_dloads.php) that makes the game even more challenging.

Commandos 2 is my favorite game in the whole series and I recommend it to Commandos newcomers; as Behind Enemy Lines and Beyond the Call of Duty are too unforgiving (I haven't played Commandos 3 yet, but it's apparently not as up to par). Alternatively, you can try Desperados if you're more into Wild West or Robin Hood: The Legend of Sherwood if you're into Middle Ages.
