    It's because everything that comes out nowadays is hot dog ****.

    I'm glad they're remastering old games to work flawless on modern systems.

    well for me , gameplay mechanics will feel outdated and will get boring. ive bought several remasters of games, and i play none. sure this game was fun in 2001 , but not anymore. (also because its been played to death already)

    I have fond memories from Commandos, but it is very true, that the novelty of remastered games wears out quickly and most people (me including) will not even finish them once ..

    It looks good. I really liked this games and its mission when it was out. I don't know why they suddenly stopped to develop this kind of games. The only one that is about to get a release soon is Desperados 3. Of course, with Sudden Strike, Company of Heroes, Blitzkrieg, we can try to find the type of atmosphere that we can get with Commandos, but the sensations are different.

    well i think the bar for remasters is going up all the time, but how many games gonna get the full treatment? probably rare few that sold big and has a bit of cult following, hell fallout 1 2 anyone? oh wait modders are taking care of that, bethesda cant half arse that so they not gonna even try.

    the console hits of past gens getting the best of the lot simply because they were mega hits on those systems. commandos a niche game among older gamers? you got nostalgia for the series this is for you and that is about it. and clearly for that it is well done effort to make the assets look way better.

    While I do love me some remasters, especially this one, we need new IPs and that's that man!!! new games new ideas!!! something to make us feel like were we were kids again man! I am tired of all these milked ideas that "they" are trying to "squeeze" on us! It maybe working for all them youngsters out there, but not for an old dog like me lol! or like many of you guys!! like many of you! :D

    I'm affraid there isn't much left that hasn't been done before. It' why we see all these remasters and surprise mechanics.

    Homeworld remastered is the very definition of how a remaster should be done. Commandos, meh.

    yes and no.

    the AI could have done with a multithreaded reimplementation as AI heavy maps still smack your cpu right down, not much they could have done with threading on the rendering, its an opengl game after all.

    They fucked up Homeworld 1 in the Remaster though, Homeworld 2 is fine.

    Yeah, well if there’s no more imagination left then what about those old IPs that were left to die, like Splinter cell or prince of Persia for example, just to name a few.

    Nowadays it’s al about micro transactions, and multiplayer focused only, and remasters of course.

    They fixed a lot of the homeworld remastered issues that received criticism.

    Not the formations and how projectiles work, that's still broken in HW1 Remastered as of today.

    Simply because they ported HW1 to the HW2 Engine, which works completely different.

    Anyways, we're going off-topic here.

    Formations were fixed in 2.0, but yes, indeed, wrong topic.

    It's out now.

    Looks like it's a buggy mess and not the remaster people expected.

    Not surprised if you look at their games, platform...Experience is half the battle.
    They have been bought by Team17 3 weeks ago.

    Loved the game back then! Wont play this. Now waiting for Desperados 3. Which should please people waiting for a decent game like this.

    Disappointing to see how this one turned out. Getting really bad reviews so far. I also hear they took out all the Nazi imagery and stuff. Not that I personally desire Nazi imagery, but let's not try to stick our heads in the sand and pretend that what happened didn't happen. If I'm playing a WW2 era game I want to see and feel like I'm in a WW2 environment.
