Download Now right here!

Life as a commando is not easy; always outnumbered, fighting deep behind enemy lines. When so much depends on your success, one must exploit every advantage at their disposal.  Each scenario is unique, and calls for a different course of action.  That's why we are bringing you the latest gameplay video which showcases the variety of ways that members of the Commandos Strike Force Team can take out their enemies.  Sometimes the situation calls for a foe to be picked off from a distance with a precise headshot.  Or perhaps the deed must be fulfilled up close and personal by slipping a garrote around your opponent's neck.  The outcome of the battle is yours to decide as Commandos Strike Force ships this Spring, 2006!

A big bunch of new screens - 29 Jan 2006

We've added 38 screenshots to our image gallery; 27 which appeared on the internet earlier this month, 6 new ones from the official website (weird, since the site says to have 12 new ones...) and 5 shots of the sniper in action which you haven't seen before today!

The image gallery can be accessed here.

Take special notice of the shot with the rainbow in it; says something about the amount of detail Pyro is putting in the game. Great work!

Praetorians Section Launched! - 24 Jan 2006

Today we have launched our Praetorians section, the last Pyro game for which we still didn't had a fansite running. Even though the game is out for a couple of years already, it's still worth checking it out as we also have some never-seen-before materials posted (at least, so we think/hope. ) Not so surprisingly though, I mean c'mon, it's TAFN you're visiting; always on front when it comes to the latest news.
