Remember coin-op classics such as Smash TV, Mercs and of course Commando? Well, Wolf of the Battlefield runs along the same lines. Charge across top-down battlefields rescuing prisoners and laying waste to an army of insurgents using those tried and tested dual analog stick controls.

In co-operative three-player this is a nostalgic blast, but single-players will grow bored quickly despite a wealth of weapons, vehicles and bosses.
