On this day in gaming, in 1998, Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines was released.

It was an WWII RTS game developed by Spanish company, Pyro Studios, and made the player use small-unit tactics to achieve objectives.

The player controls six commandos, the green beret, driver, marine, spy, sniper, and the sapper. Each of these men has unique skills and equipment to serve in accomplishing the mission goals, which usually include sabotage, infiltration, espionage, and the wiping out of enemy bases.

Going in with all guns blazing is usually a recipe for disaster as your men can only take a few shots before being killed, and this means that more deceptive, cunning methods are required in order to succeed.

I played this game to bits years ago,and some of the missions are easy, while others required the use of some of the game's interesting cheats.

The game was followed by Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty, an addon, and sequels in Commandos 2: Men of Courage, Commandos 3: Destination Berlin, and Commandos: Strike Force.

You can pick up Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines here if you want to play a classic. Otherwise you can also try Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
