I just finished playing Commandos 1 and Desperados: DOA. As you know these two games are entirely 2D with beautiful maps. This genre Stealth strategy games is somewhere lost in the market and people usually don't see many games like these two.
Now, I tried further parts of Commandos and Desperados but they have shifted to 3D maps unlike the original, classical one? This new design hasn't been much popular in the market. This is not my personal opinion but many people on sites like IGN, youtube say the same thing.
Why don't the developers stick to the original 2D maps and scenes which created ripples in the market, which was loved by all. Why do they shift to 3D always because I've seen this happening in almost all strategy games like AOE etc
