Commando [Jaguar CD – Cancelled]

Commando [Jaguar CD – Cancelled]

Commando is a cancelled FPS that was in development by Microids (also known as MC2-Microïds) in 1994 / 1995 for the Jaguar CD. There are not much more info on the game, and in the end it was canned for unknown reasons. We could speculate that it was never released because of the failure of the Atari console. Celine was able to find a screenshot of Commando in CD Consoles Magazine issue #5.

    Pure speculation on my part, but i’d guess developers/publisher took 1 look at how the stock Jaguar was doing at retail (i.e very badly) and knew the Jag CD was going to have such a small user base to try and be sold to, they’d never recoup any investments made in a Jaguar CD and killed the project stone dead.

    Atari thinking that dropping the price of the Jaguar to a price where it was the cheapest entry-level ‘Next Gen’ system at the time, so people would flock to it and then buy the Jag CD rather than buy a saturn or Playstation was rather pie-in-the-sky thinking.

    Here’s the marketing blurb that apparently went with it:

    Commando by Microids. Take an in-depth, first-person perspective into the
    trenches of 64-bit warfare. As the Officer in Charge of a team of crack
    commandos, you’ll experience all the rigors of gritty jungle combat
    through the eyes of a real soldier as you patrol, set ambushes, destroy
    key structures, rescue personnel…and ultimately win one for your
    Commando team. Jaguar’s sophisticated animation and audio processors
    bring you front-line combat so real, extended play may cause flashbacks!
