Game Overview:

Many people have experienced one time or another where something is so frustrating that he or she wants to rip the hair out of someone's head or tear off the wall. This anxiety usually comes from something being extremely difficult or impossible to accomplish a task or mission. What does Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty have to do with this extreme frustration? Unfortunately, a lot of this sequel to the original Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines provides nothing but frustration, cursing, and screaming at the computer monitor because one thing might happen when the player commands another thing to do while this other guy runs over to the wall while the other guy is standing in spot waiting to be shot. Sound complicated? That's exactly the way the player will feel when playing the game, a lot of confusion and control problems are prevalent in the game. The game does provide a lot of fun, however, it is ruined by the extreme difficulty of the game, horrible control interface, and sometimes clumsy artificial intelligence.
