> WHO DARES WINS 2 by Alligata Software


Completed & Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

It was ALWAYS going to be compared with Commando! No matter what the programmers said, it was basically a rip-off of the successful arcade hit. The thing is, it was actually a GOOD rip-off and certainly played and looked great and so at the end of the day, it didn't really matter to us C64 freaks (",).

So could it be that this game had a better game ending than Commando? ...


Here's the final level.


The Enemy H.Q.


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Erm ... well ... I used an infinite EVERYTHING cheat and played through the last SHOT level.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Well, it's VERY similar to the Commando ending apart from the fact that you don't get to go in and automatically blast the shite out of the enemy - poor show, lads. You just kill the final lot of baddies and then the final "CONGRATULATIONS" screen appears with flashing text (see above).

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: Hmmmm ... this ending could have done with a game ending tune and probably a short animated sequence. As it stands, it is VERY scarce and limited. 2/10.
     
  • Stefan: I agree, this was a great rip-off! It sure was lacking that excellent tune by Rob Hubbard that Commando had, and the graphics were simpler. But the game play was a lot better: I had Commando completed on 2nd try or so, while Who Dares Wins was a lot harder but not unfair.

    As for the ending - 3/10 for a simple animated text? You must be counting the fact that there's a headquarter shown at all, which is fair enough. Still, since Commando had that animated fire plus crackling noise and got 6/10, I would give Who Dares Wins 2 a 2/10 - it's not half as good as that of Commando.

FINAL SAY: It wont blow you away :(

G.E. RATING: 2 / 10
