Check out the topic to report bugs for my problems and mini-review. I like Commandos like you Weinerman. I've run favorite C2 missions over 100 times and probably none less than 50. At Combatsim.com I reviewed my fair share of titles and just can't give this one a passing grade. It makes no sense to blindly like something that has as many flaws as this has no matter how well you liked a previous title in a series. It's not unique. Microsoft has done the same let down in their Combat Flight Sims series and thay have God's money to do it perfect. One good review does not make it all right. If one didn't know previous Commando titles C3 seems fine, I guess.

I could even stand the poorly done stuff and bugs if I had hot keys. It's like living in the desert and going to get a new car. Your old one had air-conditioning but the new model doesn't offer it. Why, when other brands do? Sure you'll live without it but it's a huge step backwards.

There will probably be a patch but most gamers are tired of most companies using them as unwitting beta testers and then fixing what is wrong that should have been done right in production in the first place.

I can assure you that you won't regret it. I've have C3 since today and have only been playing it for a few hours. But I like it very much. Despite the hotkeys and the 800x600 resolution. Mind you my montiror messes up every resulotion other than 1024x768. Gameplay wise I also enjoy it, it's NOT that hard like some people say though I'm only at the first mission :)

a short comment -

If you liked C2 in it's hardest difficulty and have played it online, you won't give C3 a ****.
