  • Sie kontrollieren 9 Commandos: Green Beret, Scharfschütze, Spion... und diesmal auch den Dieb, die verführerische Natasha und Whiskey, den Hund!
  • 2 Tutorials und 10 Missionen fühen Sie zu Einsatzorten auf der ganzen Welt: Pariser Eiffelturm, Antarktis, Thailand, Flugzeugträger im indischen Ozean, Südseeinsel, Schloss Colditz... bei Tag und bei Nacht. Zusätzliche Bonusmissionen!
