Game Description: Prepare to take the Commandos on their most deadly mission yet as you venture deeper into enemy territory in Commandos 3: Destination Berlin the third instalment in the tactical strategy series. Commandos 3 takes the stunningly detailed graphics and compelling gameplay of the series to a whole new level. The game features a new interior engine that allows you to rotate the detailed environments and zoom in and out. Prepare your Commandos as enemy bombing raids lay waste to environments, requiring you to change your tactics and approach.
The structure of the game has been completely revamped. Commandos 3: Destination Berlin features more detailed, smaller maps providing more action-orientated missions as part of an overall campaign. A strong narrative drives the story via cinematic briefing screens. The gameplay also incorporates completely new gaming situations including ambushes, assaults and level bosses as well as classic Commandos gameplay.
Commandos 3 has three main campaigns: Stalingrad, Central Europe and Normandy. Each of the campaigns involves many different tactical situations and they can be played in any order. The game features scenarios unseen in previous Commandos games, taking you to the Stalingrad battlefields of the Eastern Front, the heart of the Reich in the Gestapo headquarters in Berlin and the D-Day assault at Omaha Beach. For the first time in the series, there's a death match multiplayer mode for up to eight players where you can use your tactical skills to play online or across a LAN.
