> COMMANDO 86 by Elite


• Completed by Inge Pedersen
Reviewed by Neil Collins

Many feel that the original Commando on the Commodore 64 was a bit of a letdown; but I actually think it rocks and makes a superb shoot-em-up game - even if it is a little short. So for me, knowing that there was a sequel, I was bound to be excited and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Unfortunately this time the sequel, Commando 86, was a complete letdown and an absolute shambles. What on EARTH were Elite thinking when they let this one pass their quality control department. I doubt very much that the ending is going to be any good...


Fat Bob finally reaches the end...


X marks the spot.


The End!

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Inge used a trainer version of the game with infinite lives.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: The Commando flashes all different colours and the ending message appears: "ALL DOCUMENTS FOUND. MISSION COMPLET".

COMMENTS:

  • Inge: I used a version with unlimited energy to clear all 20 levels.

    The ending is a typical 0.5/10 :-)
     
  • Vinny: Like the game, the ending is complete and utter shite. I'm not going to waste any more of my time. 0.5/10.
  • Gaz Spence: Complete shite - but isn't this the same game as Duet, which is already on the site with the same shite ending? :D
  • Brendan Phoenix: Commando 86 was never released right? Was it only released as part of that Elite compilation under the Duet title?
  • Andy Vaisey: Like Vinny, I too have a bit of a soft spot for the original Commando conversion. There are many factors that mean it shouldn't be a classic, but I always liked the game and not just for the music.

FINAL SAY: Shite.

G.E. RATING: 0.5 / 10
