Review Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando (Virtual Console / Virtual Console Arcade)
General William T. Sherman is popularly credited with coining the phrase "War is Hell", but we don't think he ever got the chance to play Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando.

About The Game
Experience the Capcom arcade game that spawned a multitude of clones as the original Commando comes to your living room courtesy of the Virtual Console Arcade.
Take control of Super Joe and shoot your way—in all eight directions—towards the enemy's territory, using grenades to wreak havoc with enemy placements in this seminal genre creator.
I'd like to see the NES version too.
Now that's finally the VCA love we've been waiting for.
Very glad to see Capcom is showing VCA interest. Hopefully the 19XX games will get ratings soon.
What's this game like compared to Mercs on Genesis? About the same or is one better than the other?
Wasn't the NES version of this better?
(I mean for a play at home game instead of a suck your quarters game)
I remember hidden underground areas and a focus on replayability.
the nes version was often hit with slowdown, and the graphics appear nicer in the arcade version. Don't know if there was extra content in the nes edition though
No. Its the C64 version people usually want. And thats for the music. Commandos music is the only thing, that is still, and will always be, relevant. The arcade version is surprisingly inadequate in that respect...I guess it was placed in such loud place, that I didn't hear the music back then. Heres the C64's music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrQuR1LHAVI
Heres the Nes version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2B76JAp8TNg
That music is pretty good for a C64. Quite addictive too.
