    You are a highly trained solder whose mission is to annihilate the enemy and rescue important captives. To do this you must destroy the enemy base, which is said to be impregnable. Your weapons consist of a machine gun with unlimited shots and a limited supply of hand grenades that may be replenished by stealing from the enemy.

    Games are picked through a random generator from the list compiled in the MGL 12 thread. To have your games included in the pick you need to submit a score. You can add to this list at any time. Remember to make your score valid you need to post your score in the subject line,
    and don't forget your screen shot, if you have any troubles let me know.

    Your scores need to be in by next Sunday 5th of December BY 7PM (NSW daylight savings time).

    Thought i'd kick off a little bit early as this is the first game

    I like this game, but was never any good at it in the arcades, found it gobbled my 20's too damn quick for my liking.

    First game, forearm is aching already!

    The hit miss is frustrating, bullets, grenades and walking into the enemy .

    I've always liked Commando they really got the weapons right. Limiting the gun's range adds a bit of difficulty/planning plus it just feels right for running about with a sub machine gun . It's a bit annoying shooting either side of them when they're not exactly straight ahead or at 45 degrees but I like how slow and spaced the enemies shots are, a bit like raiden, it usually feels like you can dodge about between the bullets if you're good enough.

    It's a shame that the grenades are a bit under used but it's an even bigger shame that thre sequel Mercs lost a lot of what felt best about Commando imo.

    Tav, funny you should mention Raiden! I'm playing that at the moment in the Retroleague (UK) - and I think it has really improved my Commando. I never played Raiden, but had a good bash today - then went back to Commando, and have improved heaps They seem to work well together!
