Condition of the Boxes are horrible

Jack, Amazon
17 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought two as gifts & they must be returned. They look like they have bounced around in a clearance bin for 10yrs.If ever I bought a game in this condition it was $0.25-$1.00 yet they charge $5 for this. Can't tell you about the gameplay since it must be returned unopened.

Obscene Language Cheap Cinematics

Review, Amazon
19 June 2011
  • Summary: I do not recommend the game. 1. I played for 15 minutes. The obscenity "GD" was used twice. Using obscene language unnecessarily and frequently detracts from the positive viewpoint games can be in. Example: teaching people about military tactics is a positive aspect of games given defending people is something to be proud of so long as the cause is just. Some games meet the need and value of being educationally entertaining.

Won't work on computers that play most games just fine.

Steve, Amazon
24 September 2009
  • Summary: Pretty shabby! It would install but it would not play because it needed some obscure video card feature. Most EA games and a lot of others work fine on our machines, but not this one. Beware!

"Fussy on specs."

Lionel, Mighty Ape
13 February 2006
  • Summary: Very hard to find a computer that it will run on as the game is so finicky on its hardware requirements. Not impressed as I have tried to load it on three different computers that supposedly are in excess of its requirements. Only to have it fail to install on two out of three machines. On the third machine it installed but kept crashing so often it is useless as a game. Very disappointed.

"Hope it runs"

Hilda, Mighty Ape
13 February 2006
  • Summary: Yeah, you need to be careful of this one. I have a 3Gig P4 with IGig of 533 RAM and 128MB 6600GT PCI-e video card and the game, even patched, kept freezing and crashing ( this same machine runs Doom3, Quake4, HL2, FarCry etc without any issues and on high settings). Atari response to my queries was pathetic (install DX9.0c -DUH!) and then non-existent. Atari get 0 out of 10 for service. Beware.
