The Mac Commandos Battlepack Examined
9:02 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Macteens recently posted a review of the Commandos Battlepack. The Battlepack, ported to the Mac platform by Feral Interactive, includes both Commandos 2: Men of Courage and Commandos 3: Destination Berlin. Despite mention of a few bugs, Macteens declared the Battlepack a solid game.
On a different topic, the path-of-least-resistance movement by the commandos is a great joy. Being able to send your troops in different areas of action and not having to worry about them walking into a barrier and stopping themselves takes away some of the frustration that could have ruined this game. Complexity is fine until a certain point where it reaches insanity. Thankfully, not a single mission in Commandos 3 requires the full half-dozen team of specialists with their incredible order-taking skills, compared to Commandos 2, which sometimes incorporates six of the squad members. In Commandos 3, some are just one-man missions, while most include 2 or 3 men to manage. Now, being able to make multiple cameras on one screen really helps out with the multi-tasking game that Commandos 2/3 is. My personal favorite is to have the camera follow each active team member for the time when they are split up from each other. Please note that this isnít automatic, but a few simple taps of the F2, 3, and 4 keys puts those multiple cameras in action. This somehow reminds me of a reality show with dedicated cameras on each of the dramaís significant players.For the full review check out the link below.
