Information about Commandos 3 Destination Berlin

Commandos 3: Destination Berlin is the fourth installment of the critically acclaimed Commandos series. It is developed by Pyro Studios and published by Eidos Interactive.

Gameplay

The game contains very similar gameplay to the previous games, with the similar 'point and click' approach. However, it has hardly any hotkeys as compared to the previous installment, and the user has to use buttons at the bottom of the screen on the action bar.

As in Commandos 1 and 2, you are able to see all enemies on the map, follow their movements, and make attacks depending on their behavior. There are a few differences, such as the addition of an 'Assault Rifle' - a weapon less powerful than a rifle, but more powerful than a pistol. Also, all units are able to use weapons such as the grenade, rather than just the Sapper as in previous games. The previous "knapsack" setup, simply showing a picture (wallpaper) of all the items the currently selected commando has in his possession, superimposed over a picture (wallpaper) of a rucsac, has been abandoned in favor of a "box". When the inventory is selected, there are multiple blocks to put items in, such as grenades (1 block), pistols (1 block), rifles (4 blocks horizontal), enemy uniforms (4 blocks square), sub-machineguns (4 blocks square) and time-bombs (2 blocks horizontal).

When searching enemies bodies or supply crates, a similar, but smaller box is shown for their capacity. Commandos such as the green beret or spy, who in earlier games have only been armed with the regulation pistol, can now use almost all the small arms available, except for the sniper rifle. While adding realism (the commandos are no longer useless outside their area of expertise), some players complain that this robs the commandos of their individual roles within the group, making them more generic. This does however, make the missions less linear, because the same job can done by different commandos.

The new "cover mode" ability allows the player to leave commandos waiting at a door or behind cover(this mode was also available in Commandos 2 (5 walls): Men of Courage) ready to shoot at any enemy that comes within range, often with more accuracy than when controlled manually. This gives the option of ambushes, and more defensive tactics.

As for the Commandos themselves, there are only 6 returning to this installment: The Green Beret, The Sniper, The Marine, The Sapper, The Spy, and The Thief.

Instead of the previous, long, single campaign, this game is broken down into 3 campaigns: Central Europe, Normandy and Stalingrad; each containing a various amount of missions, some shorter than others. Each campaign has different players involved but not all.

Unlike the earlier installments, Destination Berlin has a time limit on most missions.

Reception

Commandos 3 generally received good reviews:
IGN - 8.9/10
Gamespot - 7.9/10
Gamespy - 3/5

However, the game has been criticized for being difficult to play on account of having fewer hotkeys than its predecessors. The player has to control the commandos using the buttons in the pop-up menu at the bottom of the screen. Also, the game is locked at a 800x600 resolution which is low by today's standards.
