Applelinks Reviews The Commandos Battlepack
9:04 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Applelinks recently posted a review of the Commandos Battlepack, a Pyros Studios game brought to the Mac by Feral Interactive. The Battlepack, which includes both Commandos 2: Men of Courage and Commandos 3: Destination Berlin, received a 4 out of 5 rating.

Once I got the strategies down and mastered the keyboard shortcuts (and trust me, you'll need to learn the shortcuts in order to get the timing of this game right), I had a lot of fun with it. This is mainly because it's so unique. Managing just a few commandos at a time made for a fun diversion from other real-time strategy games that force you to manage entire squadrons or even whole armies. The planning is a little easier, that way, even if the execution is not. The Commandos games may even give you too much time to plan.
