What Gamespot Users have to say about Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines

  • Rating:6

    This otherwise challenging game is marred by frustrating and silly flaws in its A.I. designs and game mechanisms.

    In the history of video games, the documented battles of World War II are often the fodder for the settings of games based on World War II. However, there are a few games that focus on the secret (or more precisely, poor... Read Full Review

    Best of the series...for me.

    Most consider Commandos 2 to be the best of the series. I find that part 1 was the best and that Commandos 2 took the game in a wrong direction.... but still a great game. In Commandos 1 your squad of 6 men have a lim... Read Full Review

    Commandos is immensely difficult but a fantastic real-time strategy game.

    Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines is the first addition to a long series of real time strategy games. The game as the title suggests is about five men, five commandos, five of the best soldiers in there field, each with ther... Read Full Review

    Best strategy game to ever grace my cd-rom ...

    Commandos was the game that started my PC gaming addiction. Back in 1998 when it came out, I played it so much that I knew how to beat each mission my eyes closed(not literally of course, but you know what I mean). ... Read Full Review

    Awesome. SImple

    Commados is one of those games that can be really really frustrating, but you'll not want to stop once you've started. The men you control are as much a part of you as the air you breathe. You must position them exactly,... Read Full Review

    Better that some of this time.
