In a barely disguised version of the present, ongoing conflicts,
you lead your team against the forces of the insurgency, trying
to bring peace to a world gone mad...
first thing that you notice about this game is just how visually
rich it is. I haven't really played a game like this since
I had Black Hawk Down, which I found to be a very disappointing
game experience. This baby is in a whole different league
of its own.
Initially, the range of controls is somewhat daunting, but
worry not, as the first mission walks you through the major
commands that you will need to kick some insurgent butt. For
people like me who hates reading the manual, this is a god
send, however to get the best out of the game the manual becomes
what we really want to know is just what sort of cool toys
do we get to play with. Well you have your squad, which can
be used as a whole, or split up into buddy groups. The squad
can be directed to blow the bejesus out of enemy groups, lay
down suppressing cover or you can take over for a spot of
precision shooting. You control your four man squad choosing
their level of cover and you can even move them inside buildings.
If you really hate any of your squad you can send them off
for a bit of scouting. Running into trouble, no problem, during
the game you also have the options of either using mechanised
units or calling in air strikes.
like this are just begging to be played on-line and sometime
the single player game can suffer neglect, not so in Ten
Hammers, which provides an excellent gaming experience
in either multi or single player mode. Given that the original
program was developed for the military you just know that
the level of realism is going to be high and the game creates
a world that draws you in and keeps the tense heart pounding
action going strong throughout. The game ambience is further
enhanced by having an excellent soundscape.
a doubt the developers have proven that you can take an already
great game, in Full Spectrum Warrior and make it so
much better, though you're going to have to have a fairly
high spec machine to get the best out of the game. My main
games computer is only about a year old and it noticeably
struggled, at times, with the frame rate, even after I had
turned off all the other running applications. Still, I was
impressed enough with the game play, and the level of immersion,
to contemplate getting a copy for my Xbox.
your into squad based games you're gonna love this one, so
long as you have a decently spec'd machine.
