The real-time strategy game for PC is continuing to grow and expand, with each game becoming more complex and comprehensive than the last. But Eidos’ Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines helps to simplify the genre while simultaneously giving players a challenging and enthralling experience. The manual is thin, but the gameplay is dense, in the nicest sense.

Commandos is set in World War 2 and places you, the player, in control of a small league of experienced troops. Your task is to aid your allies in this dreadful war and get your squad back in one piece.

As mentioned earlier, Commandos is a comparatively simple game. Players must formulate impeccable strategies and study the enemy to execute a successful mission. The game comprises of dozens of levels that offer a unique but equally challenging experience to the player. Some stages involve infiltration, while others entail the player participating in an all out shoot-em-up.

The Commandos environments have been designed with care, and encourage the player to act quickly and with few errors. These environments play host to some 350 individual buildings, structures, vehicles and weapons, all from the World War 2 period.

With all the aforementioned features, a multi-player option and some cunning AI routines, Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines offers everything the real-time strategy fan could ask for.
