5.0 out of 5 stars Best Online Only FPS!!!, 4 Dec 2004
This review is from: Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising (PC) (Computer Game)
I have been a massive fan of Delta Force: Black Hawk Down since it was released but never realised it's full potential 'til i got a Broadband connection and played it online. OH MY GOD!
So when word came out that Novalogic were in the process of creating a new game to be played purely online i got very excited.
Here's what's different about it...
1. Vehicles
ATV's, APC's, Littlebird's, Black Hawk's, Armoured HummVee type vehicles, Dhingy's, Gunboat's, Hovercraft Transport's..... They're all at your disposal to drive where you like and shoot at whatever you want. No more vehicles on pre-set paths like in BHD!
2. Map's
As big as you like, full of detail, very impressive design!
3. Player Capacity
As mentioned in previous reviews, there are servers with capacity for 150 players at one time which makes large maps less empty and small maps pure chaos! It's the most redeeming factor of the game in my opinion.
4. Constant Updates
If you have not played the game in a while and an update has been released, the game will not allow you access the game servers until you download the latest updates using it's own downloader. This is great as they're constantly fixing bugs and making the game more realistic.
5. Different Game Types
Team King Of The Hill, Advance & Secure, Team Death Match, Seek & Destroy, Co-op... these are just some of the game types that are available so there's always something to suit your gaming style.
So there's not much more that i can say other than BUY IT!!!
And i'm buying the Escalation expansion pack today so i'll review that soon.
Hope this helps with your choice!
