In a new direction for the multi-million selling series, Commandos Strike Force takes you right into the heart of the action with an innovative blend and first person perspective. Set in war torn Europe amid the backdrop of World War II, take your elite ‘Strike Force’ unit behind enemy lines on a series of linked missions through France, Russia and Norway. Undertake action, infiltration and stealth missions with the Green Beret, Sniper and Spy, using any means necessary to challenge a winning enemy and pave the way for invasion. Enter into battle alone, or take the fight online with your friends.
Commandos Strike Force features an innovative blend of stealth and action gameplay new to the genre. With the ability to freely move within the battlefields players execute attacks with a high degree of control. This gives the player the ability to set ambushes, attack silently and unseen, infiltrate prisoner of war camps, stalk and stab, all while being surrounded by the enemy.
Commandos Strike Force also features several missions where players control two commandos at the same time switching between the two on-the-fly. The game boasts a variety of multiplayer modes, up to eight players online with console and 16 players via the internet.
