Following the success of Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines, a expansion pack of sorts was released shortly after.
Despite being billed as an expansion pack, Commandos: Beyond The Call Of Duty does not require the original game to play.
Although it only offers eight new missions, the level of difficulty is increased significantly from the original. Levels are much larger and even on the easiest setting are infuriatingly difficult. Stealth and timing take on a much greater emphasis.
There are also several new tools added. For example, the spy can steal an enemy’s clothes and there are rocks and cigarettes to distract guards. There are also a couple of new characters.
Aside from the difficulty, the biggest problem is that the game feels rushed. The graphics, whilst essentially the same, are not as smooth as the original, though this is mostly notable only if you have recently played the original.
There are a couple of changes which just feel unnecessary. They have switched around the hotkeys for one reason or another, though this is just a matter of getting used to.
They have also changed the voice actors for the Commandos for reasons I don’t understand. The most confusing part of this is that they all say exactly the same things, except in different accents.
Overall, I would recommend this game to diehard fans only. It is very difficult and is not for the casual player. Despite having so few levels, this will take up a lot of your time if you let it.
