From the Developer: 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'll covertly enter new environments based on authentic WWII locations, including the heart of the Third Reich, a northern European submarine installation, and the headquarters of the Japanese army.
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, sniper, demolitions expert, seductress, thief, and even a dog. The game features an all-new 3-D engine, allowing you to rotate the environment 360 degrees, zoom in and out when viewing the environment, and move seamlessly in and out of buildings, submarines, planes, and water. The innovative camera control allows simultaneous control 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.

Absolutely impossible to play. This game is way too complicated. There must be a hundred combination of buttons to remember to get things done. Some men can only do certain things and have to remember who can carry a gernade and who can't. Who can set a trap and who can't. Then try to rember which combination of buttons to push to make the man plant the bomb. After twenty minutes of set up time the enemy attacks but it happens so fast you can't move any of your men around in response to the attack. If you lose even one of your men the games over. The game becomes very frustrating and becomes very boring very quickly. This game STINKS

Just got this game a day ago and am already looking to sell it. This is by far the most complicated game I have ever played due to the controls. The game does have a wonderful tutorial for learning the controls that from start to finish is only about an hour long. EIDOS should have packaged this game with a 300 page quick referance guide just for the controls. This is probably the worst game I have ever purchased. Granted it is very complicated to learn; however you would think it would be fun to play once you get the controls down. Even though it's supposed to be an action game I did not find much action in it at all
Very difficult, very satisfying., July 3, 2002

It's tough, but not in the way of adventure games. You nearly always have unlimited time to stop and consider your next move. Getting a move right brings intense satisfaction. Very immersive.

I have all three games in the commandos series for the computer and have been excitied that they are finally coming to the xbox. The focuses on straetgy and tatics. If you just go intoa level with your guns blaring you are going to die. You should buy this game if like military strategy and tactic games that are challenging, yet fun.

I bought this game for computer thinking it to be very exciting and action packed. But actually this game is extremely boring. First, hte controls are very difficult to understand. Second, this game is incredibly difficult. I owned this game for 2 months and only beat two levels. I ,personally, like action games that put you on the edge of your seat. This game made you get on the edge of your seat because you almost fell asleep playing it. Even if you turn down the difficulty, it is still nearly impossible. The view is third person lokking from above onto the game. Sometimes this view can get very frustrating in parts of the game. Therefor, this game is definently not worth your money. If someone gave this game 4 or 5 stars i would be very fascinated to figure out what is wrong with them.
This game is Awsome!!, April 11, 2002
