CSF, out in US! - 07 Apr 2006

Commandos Strike Force, the intense stealth combat game is on its way to retailers today, and tomorrow the Strike Force team will be waiting for your command. Commandos Strike Force fuses the first person action shooter genre with intense stealth combat to give you a brand new World War II experience unlike any other game. Using the unique skills and abilities of the three different members of your elite Strike Force team, infiltrate behind enemy lines and strike your foes when they least expect it.

The Green Beret, Francis O’Brien, specializes in offensive tactics, utilizing skills such as dual wielding his machine guns or getting up close and personal with his melee attacks. William Hawkins, the Sniper, brings the word precision to a new level as he can hold his breath to line up the perfect shot. The Spy, George Brown, is the epitome of stealth combat as he can use various disguises to sneak his way into enemy territory where he can set up a vicious strike. Switch-on-the-fly between the different commandos on your team and devise your own personal style of strategy and tactics to get the mission done. Commandos can do what armies cannot, and the choice will be in your hands tomorrow, April 5th 2006, when Commandos Strike Force will be waiting for you on the store shelves!

It's out today so not tomorrow, just a bit late with posting it

Review and Q&A - 07 Apr 2006

Actiontrip have posted their review of CSF, snippet below:

"Commandos: Strike Force is not a bad game. In fact, it's a pretty good game. It does offer LAN and WAN compatibility, so Commandos is another aspect you should take into consideration. Is it worth $30 bucks? I believe so. Would I buy it? Not entirely sure. Even though the game itself is good, I'm too tired of the WWII setting to even considering purchasing a game set in the period. If you are not yet sick to the point of vomiting until you dry retch at the mere thought of yet another WWII shooter then you may want to give this one a shot. Likewise, Commandos fans that are willing to experiment, however, should pick this one up. I think they might enjoy certain segments of the experience."


And there's a Q&A over at Shacknews featuring Pyro Studios' Íñigo Vinós talking about CSF main features.

This is an interesting read for the people in the US, since the game was just released there!

Eurogamer review - 28 Mar 2006

Eurogamer has reviewed CSF and gave it a 7/10.

"Despite my grumbling I am glad I stayed the course: Commandos does entertain, especially as it becomes more ambitious, and more recognisable as a Commandos game. Each of the three commandos has his moments of heart-stopping heroism and extreme tension (although the spy is the most entertaining). There have been several crucial moments that made me laugh out loud, and others that made me feel a sense of cerebral accomplishment - feelings that are all-too rare when playing an FPS."

CSF No Inros Mod - 24 Mar 2006

Forum member Slippery Jim has created a nifty tool to disable the intro movies at the start of the game. This is what he has to say about it:

"This tool will shut off all the annoying intro movies that are shown before the game starts up. This is an extremely simple "mod" that automatically finds the path to where you installed the game and renames all the intro videos that are found in the VIDEOS folder of Commandos Strike Force. You could of course do this manually but for those that can't be bothered here is the tool to do that."

The tool has been tested and confirmed to work. Go grab it now from our Downloads dB and be sure to bring the author's website a visit.

IGN Preview - 21 Mar 2006

IGN have putted up their preview of the game so have a look if you haven't played the game yourself yet.

Some excerpts:

"Fans of the franchise will be pleased that the difficulty remains intact even though the title is now a first-person shooter. After completing a mission, you'll feel pure satisfaction, but that's mostly because there are no check points. Die, and start over."

Unless you use the save function of course.

" One of the most impressive parts of the game thus far is the impact of bullets on enemy soldiers and their realistic flops to the ground. As Hawkins, you can train you sniper rifle on a fast-moving enemy and press a button to hold your breath, which will not only steady your aim but also slow down the game for a moment, a kind of Zen-like moment before you unleash a fatal head shot. Needless to say, it looks and feels cool."
