|Commandos: Strike In Narrow Path|
|Mode(s)||Single Player, Multiplayer
Commandos: Strike In Narrow Path is a stand-alone expansion pack for Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines. This game is not part of the official Commandos series developed by Pyro Studios but a mod created by a handful of ambitious Commandos fans. It is set in the Second World War, but the whole plot is historical inaccurate or even fictional. The first three missions were released in the fall of 2010. Until January 2013 the developers have released six more mission - and they are still working on more.
Since Commandos: Strike In Narrow Path is based on Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines, they basically have the same features. The designers also added the following features, which were not present in the original game:
- Walkable buildings: The soldiers can not only enter the buildings but also move there like they can on the outdoor map.
- Civilians: Some of them will ignore the members of the Commandos squad and some will alert the German guards if they spot anything suspicous.
- Weather effects: On some maps snow or rain create a great atmosphere.
- Not all members of the squad are fully equipped anymore, they have to find and collect their weapons and equipment on their own.
- Extended interaction with the environment: The Commandos can use traps to elimate the enemy forces or they can use a radio to call for reinforcements.
There will be 20 missions in total in Commandos: Strike In Narrow Path. The game is divided into four campaigns:
- Central Europe Campaign: Mission 1-4
- North African Campaign: Mission 6-9
- Southeast Asian Campaign: Mission 11-14 and mission 20
- North Atlantic Campaign: Mission 16-19
The remaining missions 5, 10 and 15 have a special setting.
