Excerpt: While not exactly a new game, CT Special
Forces was originally released nearly 2 years ago in its native lands
of Europe. I have personally been waiting for its arrival stateside
since I first heard of the game. If you, too, have been awaiting this
title, it's on the shelves now. So how is it?
Excerpt: A lone soldier treks through a snowy mountainside in search of a fiendish terrorist. The frequent blizzards are silent, and the pathetic layer of powder beneath him fails to so much as poof. As this unnamed grunt springs forth from a trench to exchange fire with his foes, he somehow lands in midair, causing him to take a volley of fire to the gut.
Excerpt: Most of the time, the GBA is thought of as 'kiddie' console. And because not many violent games have been released on it, but because only a few classics have (such as Doom 2). CT Special Forces is not much of an exception, as it features no blood or gore, but it gives you the perspective of being a Counter Terrorist. Through 11 levels you will fight for freedom of your country from terrorism, the USA.
Conclusion: Unleashing your arsenal on the terrorists is easier than you might think. The enemy AI isn’t that smart. If you’re shooting from a lower platform up at them, they won’t shoot down at you. It makes some sections very easy. I know the GBA probably isn’t capable of handling human-like AI, but they don’t even feign interest in the fact they’re being filled with holes.
