Just a little while ago any multiplayer game allowing more than a couple of dozen people to play in the same game, at the same time, was something pretty special. Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising though allows for a mind-boggling one hundred and fifty people to compete at the same time in a subscription free, lag free, graphically stunning next-gen battle simulator.
The games rather obvious inspiration is EAs Battlefield series, but whereas Battlefield Vietnam proved to be a rather disappointing cash-in, Joint Operations is all-new and a more genuine attempt to carry on the idea using the latest graphics technology. Set during a fictional modern war the game features maps that are up to fifty square kilometres in size (although there are smaller ones if youre playing with less people) and a host of vehicles to help you cover the terrain including every possible permutation of helicopters, jets, tanks and boats. Like many such games Joint Operations is classed based, which means that you can choose to play the role of a large number of specialised soldiers, including standard riflemen, engineers and medics.
Although it does almost nothing that is original by upping the scale of the battles and the graphics Joint Operations becomes an entirely legitimate successor to Battlefield (at least until Battlefield 2 is released next year anyway). As with EAs games there is no real single player mode to speak of, but as long as thats not a problem for you this is hard not to recommend. --David Jenkins
Joint Operations takes gamers to Indonesia in the near future where the country is on the verge of disintegration. Gamers can play as either a member of the multinational Joint Operations Force or as a member of a powerful Indonesian separatist group. Teamwork is essential. Both sides are equipped with their own unique variety of modern weapons and player-controlled land, sea and air vehicles to achieve their mission objectives and ultimate victory. Terrains range from beautiful coastal islands to misty, dense jungles, all adding to the intense and chaotic atmosphere only experienced in large-scale, multi-player combat over the Internet or LAN.

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...
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!
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!
This game is great fun, its got it all with one caveat (*) - massive maps, 150 player rooms (lag free too!), useful but not indestructible vehicles, player profiles (medic, gunner, sniper, engineer etc.)
When I bought this I didnt really know what to expect, I played H&D2, CoD and FarCry, but no other FPS before those, this is better I would say (though CoD has some good mods - Revolt namely.)
I cant compare it to BF1942 or BFV but its the best I have played so far.
* - If you dont play online the this game probably wont deliver for you.
The online side of things is were all the action is at. There are many massive maps with tons of vehicles to keep the action running at a fast pace. You can either work alone or work in a team with other online players via the squad interface. There are a few issues with the initial release of the game such as low fps (frames per second) when playing with lots of players online (on some systems) and also some minor bugs which will get ironed out as patches and updates are released.
Overall this game is definatly my favorite online multiplayer game and is definatly better than the likes of the battlefield series. If your a serious online gamer then this is a must have!
novalogic has changed its attitue towards its customers, being more focused on novalogic than customers, if you think you have the best internet speeds in the world you can be proved wrong novalogic servers are riddle with lag server updates make things even more worse and game updates get absolutely stupid. novalogic use a program called punkbuster this is no longer in use but you still need it as the game wont run without it and as all ties were cut with the makers of punkbuster before vista came out there will be a few modifications you need to do before you can enter a server first you need to find the punkbuster vista patch and implement it into the novalogic file in you program file for joint operations. if your thinking of buying this game for the first time i recomend you know whats in your pc and what you have running within your operating system the system requirements for this game is bare minimum and bare minimum is impossible to play with not a joke its fact the game does support nvidia, ati chipset motherboards but you'll be playing on bare minimum and with internal system lag again impossible to play joint operations with. joint operations does seem to dislike norton security antivirus and macafee,and avg and avast running while your in game they seem to cause system lagg and connectivity issues to the servers. another issue is contacting nova for tech help there is none the telephone number in the booklet is now an obsolete number and turning to the novaworld forums for help is like getting blood out of a stone the support e-mail address is still in use but you dont get a received message back or a reply to your question or query if you do get a reply your one in about 0.5% of those who does get an answer. as with all games there are cheaters (known as hacks) report them via the forums and you get ignored by novalogic there are verry few novalogic moderators left and these do not moderate this game. but that said nova will have a clean out once in a while about every 4 to 8 months to ban a few cheats. another downside is that when you register your game you become a silver vip member of novalogic if you want to upgrade to gold it will cost you money £12.99 dont be fooled that upgrading gives you higher status within novaworld comunity it doesnt and novalogic will treat you the same as a silver vip. over all when the servers aren't laggy and you can find a server with people in them to play against it is 100% addictive adrenalin pumping action once youve learned how to shoot and spot enemy and dance like MJ (GOD REST HIS SOUL). there are many bugs glitches to the game wich are extemely annoying nova tries to fix them with update patches (oh you have to update the game as soon as you install and register the game) but things just get worse or you dont notice a thing that theyve done except make the game more compataible with higher resoltion monitors. and this review dont just apply to this game either it goes for all novalogic games including the upcomeing delta force extreme 2 its alwready release in the usa and there cheaters in it alwready and no nova moderation. all in all novalogic is struggleing they dont have customer service skills and the servers are emptying slowly due to people moving on to better more customer focused developers of top games i soon will be following.
