SummaryStill somewhat better than Commandos II
The GoodThe game is a story-based Commandos, that takes place in a western concept. You control John Cooper and his buddies, who are blamed of a crime not of their own. You both escape from the law and try to find who's beneath this crime.
The first thing that I was amazed about this game has been the atmosphere. The battle settings of every level, are quite puzzle-like but, the acting of enemy bandits, your friend and civilians; and other atmospheric graphics, make the game look like a theather scene. You not only solve the game, but also watch a cartoon movie in it. Every enemy behaves differently as they have their own personality. Some act cowardly, some are angry or curious.
The game almost never gets boring.
The BadAlthough the game has some original concepts, it still looks quite like Commandos.
The thing I personally disliked is, you can't control all six characters at once in any level.
The Bottom LineThe game has cute graphics and pretty good voice effects that captures you. The levels are not stories apart from each other but part of the main plot which makes you wonder what's coming after.
*For those who don't know commandos, this is a real time strategy game in which you try to solve some difficult situations by using different special talents of your characters. (eg. One of your characters can distract the enemies, while another can get them throwing a knife.)
