Summary: I bought this when it first came out and I loved it. I really hope they make a remake of it and put it on the 360. Have Bohemian Interactive develop it because they are the masters of making real life simulation games like the ARMA series and the first Operation Flashpoint. If they made a remake of this game I would be the first person to pre-order. I really hope they make it for the new generation of consoles.
Summary: In most first person shooting games it is mainly about point and shoot. Not much else aside from maybe a story line. The reason that this game is revolutionary is because it not only has the shooting action that we all like, but strategy mixed in. In this game you lead a team of four marines. You have to make sure you lead keep them from danger and death or you will fail the mission . As the lance corporal your job is to keep your men safe while completing the mission.
Conclusion: Close Combat First to Fight is a video game title that says it all. This military game was almost everything that I hoped it would be. The little more that I was hoping for were more weapons to choose from since the U.S. Military have such a wide variety of weapons to choose from in its inventory. The more weapons starts off with the M4/203, both of the M242 SAWS, .30 and .50 caliber machine guns, and at least our own rocket launcher, the Javelin or the TOW 2.
Conclusion: If you are a fan of modern military first-person shooters, then you no doubt will be intrigued by Close Combat: First To Fight's false promise of delivering realistic, tactical modern war action with authentic military weapons and tactics. In this case, Close Combat: First to Fight focuses on a squad of Marines sent into Beirut to restore peace in the country.
Conclusion: Quite a good game, very similar in style to the "conflict desert storm" titles. Involves alot of postioning of your squad to ensure sucess, especially when doing any fighting inside buildings. Good atomospheric graphics although the enemy AI can be dumb alot of the time!. A good rental overall though, took me best part of 5 days to play through the single player campaign.
Conclusion: It's unfortunate when one finally comes face to face with something that he has wanted for quite sometime and it turns out to be less than expected. Fair enough that over time expectations can rise significantly, but I really don't think that mine rose that much. A highly realistic First Person Shooter was what was promised, and given that it is on the Xbox some pretty decent graphics were to be expected in the mix as well. Niether apply to this game.
Summary: First off, this game is ok, but nothing special. You team is sooo unbeleivably stupid. The graphics are Average, but not what you expect from an Xbox game. The packaging is misleading as on the back It shows excellent graphics and scenery which are noware to be found in the game. I purchased the game from Gamestation for 37.99, a crime when it is on Amazon for a measly 14 squids. It is priced correctly on Amazon for what it is,a budget game.

Summary: With a gamplay similar to the Black Arrow series this is a worthy FPS. Graphics aren't fabulous but do the job. Controller configuration is fine except that in order to run you have to double tap the left thumbstick upwards which was frustrating, I found myself trying to avoid running if possible.
