Close Combat: First to Fight Reader Review - 9.5
Sergeant AR 15, IGN Entertainment

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.
Summary: O.K. a realistic military shooter that incorporates the true to life tactics of the US Marines currently in Iraq and Afghanistan. Well it is unfortunate when one has to give only 3 stars to not only something that sounds so good on paper, but something that he had also been waiting for for quite some time. Allow me to explain: Think back to the PC, and then think of the Delta Force games, pretty bad aren't they in comparison to modern day combat games.
Summary: if you like fullspectrum warrior but thought that would make an ace FPS then look know further this is no average FPS rather than dumb ass bots jumping out and shooting they will seek cover to wipe out yo ass and same with your men they will use all cover available to kill the enemy...... .....but if you thought that rainbow six was hard cause of the lack off life then look away now but all else hall ass and click order..... ....hoooyaaa...
Summary: I'm a great fan of Military shooters and this is probably the closest to perfection that I have played. Take the control style of Rainbow Six 3 fuse it together with Full Spectrum Warrior for toughness and imagery and you have Close Combat. Narrow alleys, opening doors, enemies on all levels and some great set pieces. this is eart pounding stuff topped with that rare thing of online LIVE co-op play. This is a hot game, no walk in the park but not impossible.
