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.

    Doom_Bringer just bought bf1 today busy with school but a round or two wont hurt (21 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yeah it's a pretty good game "if you don't think about it" :D (42 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX BF1 doesn't even have real squad incentives thanks to the relaxed CASUAL scoring system. If you want squad points you can just give and follow your own orders. (42 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @aphex187: You probably haven't even played all of the maps in BF4 and yet you're an expert on which game has better maps. As verified by your friends list because that means anything. (43 minutes ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Btw, its only a game so there's no need to get worked up over something as trivial as that man. (49 minutes ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 diverse bunch. But yeah, BF1 is such a better game and IMO feels better when playing as a squad than what BF4 set out to do. *my opinion (55 minutes ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Like i said, BF4 bored me and that's why i couldn't care less what snipers had. I don't know anybody that liked that game or even sinked a whole lot of hours into it and the guys i play with are a fkn (56 minutes ago)
