GD07: Commando 3 images

It's time to continue our coverage of Capcom's Gamer's Day 07, and what better way than showing the first images of the third installment in the awesome Commando series? More info about the Xbox Live Arcade game can be found inside.


Quoting the press release: Lock and Load! Commando 3 takes the no-holds-barred arcade spirit of its predecessors and crafts an all-new furious cooperative shooting adventure for the next generation!

General Ratiev, evil leader of the Zalestad nation must be stopped. At the player’s disposal is a huge arsenal of weaponry, controllable vehicles, and a rag-tag group of specialized soldiers, each with their own unique characteristics. Thankfully, players aren't alone in this mission; up to three players can enjoy the classic arcade-style experience together on a single console or online. Commando 3 even compensates for the multiplayer mode by dynamically shifting difficulty levels based on the number of players in the game, ensuring that the game always poses a challenge. The Commando 3 soundtrack is being created by Norihiko Hibino, an international composer well-known for his work creating music for the Metal Gear series of games. With a comprehensive scoring system and online leaderboards, players can see how they compare to the best digital soldiers in the world!

• Four playable soldiers with their own unique characteristics.
o Antonio Ramirez Carranza aka “Animal” - A grizzled former marine, Sgt. Carranza enjoys his work a little too much. Known for shooting anything that moves.
o “Smoke” - Not much is known about Smoke. Her records have been wiped clean, nevertheless, her skills at espionage and covert ops are known and feared far and wide.
o Roy McMurray aka “Boomer” – The cranky vet of the bunch, specialist McMurray has been involved in full blown war, covert ops and police actions. He is renowned for his love of explosives.
• Multiple weapons, including rocket launchers, grenades and shotguns.
• More than 10 unique power-ups, including deadly “M-Crash” superbombs.
• Controllable co-op vehicles allow for maximum destruction! Up to three players can team up together to make vehicles mobile fortresses! One player drives while the other two shoot.
• Support for up to three players simultaneously, both online and on a single console.
• Four difficulty levels, which automatically adjust based on the number of players in the game.
• Comprehensive scoring system.
o Score Multipliers allow players to maximize their points tally. o Online Leaderboards let players vie for the best online rank against the world’s greatest commandos.

Hope the controls are good. It seems a bit hard to do well working controls for a game like this, from what I've seen.

they'll most likely go for the Robotron control scheme.
but I don't know, they might go for the old fashioned method.

They'll probably use the dual stick control method.

I love Commando. Never the played the sequel though, but the first one was awesome. The only issue I've with this one is that it's Backbone that's making it. They really should give the lights to someone else, you know.

    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 6 should incorporate all the halo species to date. Humans, covenant, brutes, flood, forerunner & also introduce a new species (3 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 5 was a disaster storywise. Only way they can fix halo 6 is to drop that other spartan and focus only on master chief (3 Hours ago)

    amerakindesi @Tiz: i love the anniversary mockups. For the true fans to enjoy the classics with a modern feel. (3 Hours ago)

    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (6 Hours ago)

    Tiz The H6 campaign I meant. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (6 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (6 Hours ago)
