    A spy with a hypodermic needle need I say more?

    This game is a real time strategy game that tests your skills to solve problems without resorting to guns. However do not be turned off by that because you will also get to go "Rambostlye" and a few missions allow you t... Read Full Review

    Prepare to Lose Sleep

    Commandos is easily one of the best strategy games to date. It may look like just another RTS game, but the game's inner working goes much deeper. You are in charge of six highly trained commandos whose job is to ca... Read Full Review

    Excellent, but an extremely difficult game

    This is one of the jewels on my collection. Despite the age of this game, its graphics are very good, and some of the elements on this RTS are used until now. The isometric view helps the player to achieve his objective... Read Full Review

    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
