Veteran gamers have probably already heard of the game Commandos, well it’s getting reworked under name Commandos 2 HD Remaster. Namely, the second sequel of the PC franchise will reappear as it was the most popular one. If you are curious about this two-decade-old classic or just a fan of a good strategy game stick with us for more information with our Commandos 2 HD Remaster review.
What is it about?
Some of you may have played the game in its original form and are already familiar with the content it offers. For the rest of you, it’s a real-time strategy game set in World War II. You will be charged with the tasks behind enemy lines that will test your decision-making as well as timing. To complete these missions, you will need to lead an elite team through a series of obstacles.
To complete these challenges, you will have to show a certain level of ingenuity — this game puts an accent on problem-solving skills rather than the raw gunfights. Therefore you need to stay unseen if you want to survive the mission. Each member of a team has a prominent feature you’ll need to exploit to be successful.
What improvements can we expect?
As the original game is around twenty years old, we can expect some significant changes. It comes without saying that graphics experience will be completely refreshed. Also, the controls will be adjusted to modern gaming. Of course, the user interface will be friendlier, and the game will include a tutorial to enable a smoother experience.
We already mentioned during this Commandos 2 HD Remaster review that you lead the team of exceptional individuals. Each one of them has a particular area of expertise. For example, only Jack O’Hara can lift heavy objects. Your team will have profiles like a sniper, thief, driver, etc.… But don’t forget, in the end, it is up to you to organize them and complete the missions.
As the game is supposed to be released near the end of the year, PEGI hasn’t come up with the official grade. We can only speculate based on what we know at the moment. Either way, we are pretty sure that the game won’t receive a maximum grade of 18 because the main aspect of the game is the strategy.
Overall experience and expectations
If you were around since before the ’00s, this game carries a lot of memories. Therefore the expectation bar is set high for this genre-defining game. So far, it looks promising and hasn’t disappointed. All it is left now is to be patient for a couple more weeks for a release and see if it lives up to its potential. We hope you enjoyed our Commandos 2 HD Remaster review.
