Commando was a massive smash hit in the arcades and the game that really put the now legendary Capcom on the map and inspired a string of clones and sequels.

It's classic drum driven music is now very well known but the question is which home computer did the best rendition of it?

Ah, so that's where that music is from. I've heard it at 8 bit lounge several times.

yes for me also..the others just didn't seem right or sound like the original Arcade music as closely as the C64 version did..so c64 version it is for me.

Its clearly a remix and sounds quite different, the ST version is the most accurate.

However I agree the C64 is the best one (for once!)
