Review of 'Who Dares Wins II'

Rating:4 User: WhenIWasCruel

This seems to be a sequel of no game [although there is a Missing In Action titled Who Dares Wins released in 1983 by the prestigious East Midlands Software], but it surely looks a lot like a "sequel" to Commando, or, using a more apt definition, a "shameless clone". In fact, there's not much to be said about it, the gameplay is identical, you're a soldier furiously shooting your way vertically casting the occasional granade while swarms of bullets are addressed to you from a whole army or two. There is no scrolling, anyway, but only flip screens. The graphics are similar too, only more colourful, and with semi-destroyed barracks reminding of Ocean's Rambo. And with a bit more flickering. The tune and the presentation are ok, and if you're not tired of mindless destruction, but your Commando and your Ikari Warriors are worn out by now, this is a fun and playable alternative.
4/5
