It would be okay if Commando was good, but it's lost playability, has poor collision detection and is just as easy as the Spectrum version.
ST Action
The original Commando launched what must be one of the most prolific genres in the eight-bit market, and in the arcades it was a monster hit. Now, the coin-op conversion hits the ST screens and how! To all intents and purposes, this is the arcade game on an ST screen. The screen size has been reduced from the arcade version, but the visual and sonic presentation, as well as the general feel of the game, is a remarkable accurate interpretation of the coin-op. If you're a Commando-game vet then this is a must - pure, addictive gameplay and a real treat to review one of my all-time favourites.
Commando is still a load of fun to play but it's pretty basic. I think maybe this should have been a budget game.
