A glimpse at lazy gamemaking

The Good

I liked the fact that this game was so easy to win so I was able to rack up another win to my personal NES game count without exerting too much effort. And it is always enjoyable to see early examples of poorly translated Japanese video games.

The Bad

Commando always struck me as a rather sorry excuse for a game. I guess I am just easily offended by the fact that the game's 4 levels were actually just the same one level repeated 4 times but with more enemies and bullets during each iteration.

The Bottom Line

Go ahead and play Commando, if only because it will not take you very long. Then move along to the sequel, the far superior Bionic Commando.
