Desde los más profundos búnkeres y posiciones de artillería del Tercer Reich o la terrorífica prisión del castillo de Colditz, hasta el mamparo de un portaaviones en el mar, Commandos 2: Men of Courage contiene los entornos de juegos más realistas y detallados que jamás se han visto. Una vez más, los jugadores están al mando de la sección de elite y utilizan cada una de sus exclusivas habilidades para completar sus misiones en las profundidades del territorio enemigo.
Commandos 2 es la experiencia de juegos de estrategia para PC de mayor inmersión y realidad que hay disponible.
Taking third-person action and strategy to new heights, Commandos 2 for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox is a great example of how to tackle the real-time strategy genre properly. Set over 10 missions in theatres of war across the globe, this is no place for gung-ho grunts. Care and thought are required in huge amounts before a shot is fired or the might of half the German army will descend and drill you full of holes--not a pleasant thought.
From the word go this game is hard. Very hard. Rarely does it cut you any slack; one wrong move and it's game over. Initially this can be very irritating, but persevere and Commandos 2 is a real gem. The game's designers have thought of just about everything when it comes to running, crawling, tip-toeing and creeping past the enemy--there are around 100 very short tutorial missions designed to introduce the control system and the various vehicle, weapon and stealth techniques available to the player, and these alone will take a couple of hours to play through; skipping them is a really bad idea if you want the best from this title.
In addition to wandering around on foot, a wide variety of vehicles can be commandeered and driven around (usually badly). Tanks can be used as offensive weapons, and boats are available for water-based missions. All of this Nazi-busting malarkey is brought to you by a squad of combatants including six commandos, each with their own special ability, a female member of the French Resistance, a dog and a rat (!), which makes for interesting gaming indeed.
Its relatively slow pace will put many folks off, but stick with it you'll find that and Commandos 2 is one of the best RTS games to hit consoles to date.
Commandos 2: Men of Courage is a tactical action-strategy game set against the backdrop of World War II. You take control of an elite group of commandos who must venture deep into enemy territory and use their combined expertise to complete a series of mission-based objectives. You covertly enter new environments based on authentic WWII locations, including the heart of the Third Reich, a northern European submarine installation, the headquarters of the Japanese army and more.
You will interact like never before with the environment: stealing enemy uniforms and weapons, climbing poles, swinging from cables, swimming, using vehicles and climbing in and out of buildings, ships and planes. You will control nine commandos, including a Green Beret, a sniper, a demolitions expert, a seductress, a thief and even a dog. The game features an all-new 3-D engine, allowing you to rotate the environment through 360 degrees, move seamlessly in and out of buildings, submarines, planes, and water and zoom in and out when viewing the environment. The innovative camera control allows simultaneous manipulation of multiple gameplay windows in real time.
Commandos 2: Men of Courage includes 10 missions spanning nine different night and day environments with realistic weather effects. Go to war with others in a cooperative multiplayer mode and use new WWII vehicles and weapons such as jeeps, tanks, trucks, ships, bazookas and flamethrowers.
