''It seems that Capcom is feeling a bit retro-crazy these days, what with the announcements of an old-school NES rendition for a new Mega Man title, the Bionic Commando remake, Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD, and the subject of this review, Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3.
Arcade and NES players alike will remember the first two entries in the series, most likely with fond memories of pumping quarters into a local arcade machine for both Commando and the follow-up, Mercs. Commando 3 borrows concepts from both of those original titles, such as the vehicle control from Mercs and the prisoner rescues of Commando, while updating the visuals and gameplay style a bit to fit in with the modern times.
At its heart, Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 is another twin stick shooter in the same vein as other Xbox Live Arcade titles like Assault Heroes or even the popular Geometry Wars. While you use the left thumbstick to control your character's movement, you use the right thumbstick to do all the aiming and shooting. You can also toss grenades with the right trigger button (hold it down to throw them farther), and unleash a powerful screen-filling special attack with the left trigger.''
