It has come to our attention that unfortunately, the Commandos series will not run on Windows 10.

The reason for this is the lack of support for the older version of Direct X used by the game (Version 5)

While we continue to look for solutions to bring the Commandos series to more modern platforms, we unfortunately cannot offer any specific time frame for when this may occur due to engine's age.

As this is the case, we have two suggestions for anyone attempting to run the game in the Windows 10 environment:

1. Install a virtual machine such as VirtualBox or VMWare and run a virtual environment of Windows XP for improved compatibility. This is recommended but may not solve all issues.

2. If you have played the game for less than two hours, you can claim a refund via Steam.

Do you like enemy lines and per chance being behind them? Do you own a PC made since 1967? Then our friends at Get Games may have just the deal for you.

Yes, as the headline suggests, you can currently buy the Commandos Complete collection for a whopping £2, which is a saving of about seven million per cent.

The pack consists of Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines, expansion pack Beyond the Call of Duty, and sequels Commandos 2: Men of Courage, Commandos 3: Destination Berlin and Commandos: Strike Force.

The Commandos series, from Spanish developer Pyro, is an isometric World War II stealth game where you direct a Green Beret, sniper, spy and other specialists to complete a range of fiendishly difficult objectives to turn the tide of war.

Full disclosure: Get Games is the downloadable PC games service brought to you by Eurogamer, so this is technically a bit of an advert, but we only talk about it on when we think there's a deal on you'll really like. Because we're still marines and we've got a job to do.
