One of the best games I've ever played. Still today i fire it up and enjoy beautiful graphics, excellent gameplay and music. Many comments around web said that it was harder than first one. But i think it's the other way around IMHO. Yes, the maps are larger, enemies are all over the place, but you get more means to dispose of the nazis, which makes things easier but yeah, there's a lot of them. It might not appeal to newcomers not used to this type of gameplay, but for this price and with so many good comments you can hardly go wrong with the purchase. Highly recommended...

I've just started playing this game and it felt easy after the first game and its expansion. Having a 3d environment is a plus but the dumbdown gameplay and overpowered features of the squad is silly. I'm on the 4th mission (6th if you count training levels) though, hope it gets more challanging.

Ed: Finished the game with half of the bonus missions as well, still think it's way easier than the first game.

As far as I remember the game is awesome, but (at least on my system) its pretty much impossible to get working. Make sure you can run the game.

Do not buy. I love the commandos series BUT its not running on current hardware.
I wonder if they even tested the game on recent hardware before steam publish.

For ONE YEAR I'm trying to run this game without succes.
The devs do not even bother. Steam discussions are full of people with problems.
This is just a simple money grab.

So for the people that want to get this game.. try to get it from other sources before buying on steam to test if your pc can even run it ^^

Pc Specs:
Windows 7 SP1 X64
i5 4670K
8GB Dominator RAM
Nvidia GTX 670

If you dont believe me:

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.
