Other Fields
in the Area:
I have no played at any other fields, but judging from what my friends say and what I've seen of other fields, I'd say Commando is the best with Tactik in at 2nd.
Directions
to the Field:
There are directions on the site commandopaintball.ca. It's in Navan.
Review: Commando is the only field I've played at, but from what my friends have told me about PSI, Carnage, Tactik and JT's, Commando is the best, and it doesn't surprise me.

Strengths:
-Fields. Their fields are AMAZING. They've got so many that I haven't even played on them all. They have 4 urban settings (Army Base, Naval Base, Village and D-day) all of which are awesome. Tonnes of cover, two story towers, trucks, barrels, trenches, bridges, sandbags and pretty much anything else you can think of. I'll admit that the fields don't actually look like a village or a naval base in that the layout of the cover is based around gameplay flow rather than realism. However the cover you'll be hunkering down beside/in aren't pallet boards and plywood. They're large boats or trucks or petrol containers.
There are also a whole bunch of woodland fields (Hamburger Hill, Alamo, Death Valley and a couple others). Alamo is a large fort surrounded by fields with towers and windows in all directions. Hamburger hill has had the majority of the trees cleared so that line of sight isn't a problem, but it still seems like a densely wooded forest. It's a less intense and more stealthy field. I've never played on Death Vally and don't know anyone that does.

-Paint. Apperentely they used to use crappy hotbox paint and charge $40 for it, but now they've vastly upgraded to custom DXS paint. I'm not an expert on paint, but I've never had problems with it. Sometimes it doesn't explode, but I just keep shooting and that solves the problem.

-Staff. Holy crap the staff is awesome, especially Dave (the owner) himself. The staff is all very casual and friendly and aren't at all strict. They'll enforce the rules if they have to, but the generally just let you have fun. If you need to borrow something like a barrel bag or hopper or some oil they got no problem lending it to you.
Dave is amazing. I played two days ago and my dad's marker got a leak. Without any hesitation Dave opened it up, replaced the screws, oiled it, cleaned it and got it working to almost perfect condition, all free of charge (there was a little, hardly noticeable leak, but air is free so it wasn't a problem). Also on that day my dad went to buy some paint and Dave asked if my dad was a member. My dad said "I could lie to you, but no, I'm not". Just for his honesty, Dave gave my dad a bag for member's price anyways. On their D-day big game (which was awesome by the way) me and my dad's name had not been taken down for pre-payment, even though we had. Dave was like "whatever, I left a couple sheets at home" and there were no problems. Another time a couple years ago a girl was shot in the eye with a paintball gun. Dave managed to raise/give $5000 to the girl to pay for her semester's tuition because she couldn't work due to the fact she was blind in one eye. PSI and Carnage didn't provide anything.

Weaknesses:
Nothing really, except they're a bit disorganized. They're getting much better and improving over the years (they recently got a credit card machine). Their are no facilties except a little shack for registration and storage and a couple port-a-potties, as well as a firing range and a water tank for washing you stuff off. I personally don't mind the low key facilities, but I guess it would be a problem for some people.

Neutral:
Prices are the same as everywhere else I checked, except they give free air if you pay the green fee (some fields charge per fill).

I love Commando. I know Dave is always there to help me out if I need something or some equipment breaks, the fields are awesome, the staff is nice, and the people that play there are all great guys.
