Commandos 2: HD Remaster is a remastered version of the iconic tactical strategy from 2001. The title was developed by Yippee! Entertainment, in cooperation with the authors of the original, Pyro Studios.

Plot

The action of Commandos 2: HD Remaster takes place during World War II. The main characters of the story are well-trained soldiers performing dangerous tasks behind enemy lines. Over the course of ten missions, the protagonists are sent to various parts of the world, including Europe, Asia, North Africa and even the Arctic.

Mechanics

In Commandos 2: HD Remaster, the action is shown from bird's eye view. During the game, we pursue a variety of goals including elimination of a specific persons, theft of documents or acquisition of the Enigma encryption machine. What's more, if we manage to collect all the fragments of the photographs hidden in the nooks and crannies of the maps, we get access to bonus missions like a rally by motorboat between mines.

Be on your guard when on duty, because the locations are crawling with enemies. Although many of them can be avoided by sneaking away from their sight, bloodshed is very common here. Things are complicated by the fact that the game is characterized by high level of difficulty, and the detection of one of the protagonists heralds serious problems - getting into an open firefight is almost a 100% guarantee of mission failure. Therefore, in order to achieve success, we must use well thought-out tactics and make proper use of the individual skills of the heroes and their equipment. The ability to rotate the camera helps to discern the situation on the battlefield.

Technical aspects

Compared to the original Commandos 2: HD Remaster is distinguished, in particular, by its appealing visuals. The devs focused on models of characters and environmental elements. In addition, improvements have included user interface and controls, as well as redesigned tutorial.
