"We shall fight on the PC. We shall fight on the Dreamcast and the PlayStation 2. We shall never surrender!"
Anticipation has been high amongst PC gamers awaiting the arrival of "Commandos 2", the sequel to the massively popular World War II tactical combat game from Eidos and Spanish developers Pyro Studios. Now our console brethren can rejoice, as Eidos have revealed that the sequel will be coming to the Dreamcast and PlayStation 2 some time next year, as well as our own beloved beige boxes. Details on the console versions are scarce at this point, but we do know that Pyro are doing them in-house rather than relying on another company to produce a quick and dirty port of their game. And with a whole new range of missions to sink your teeth into, as well as new characters, vehicles and equipment, improved AI and numerous other gameplay tweaks, the sequel should be well worth a look whatever your favourite gaming system is.
While we wait for "Commandos 2" to be released though, Eidos were good enough to send over eight new screenshots of the PlayStation 2 version of the game and another seven shots of the Dreamcast version to show off the new console ports. And although the console ports don't have the advantages of the PC version's ability to go up to a maximum resolution of 1024x768, they certainly still look good, and will give you something to drool over as Pyro put the finishing touches to the game ready for its release next spring.
