Conflict Desert Storm II: Back to Baghdad Review
9 February 2008
Conclusion: Conflict Desert Storm II isn’t a title that is going to blow anyone out of their La Z Boy, but it does have the ability to make a person sit in it for awhile and get into the decent gameplay. A lot of the Xbox crowd won’t be able to cope with the dumbed down AI or the hazy graphics in this title; those that will put up with it are the folk who realize that this is still one of the best military campaign fighters available on the Xbox and a really nice 4 person title.
Excerpt: Conflict: Desert Storm II - Back to Baghdad is a third person action game that emphasizes squad level tactics between four operatives of the U.S. or British armies. Back to Baghdad is a follow-up that uses the same graphics engine as its predecessor. It manages to eliminate some but not all of the inconsistencies and annoyances from the former title.
Excerpt: For those of you who are deciding whether or not to run for the presidency in America, this was the war you should support; the recent one is the one you should be opposed to. While Back to Baghdad doesn’t deal with the material that we see every day on CNN or BBC, it is still a poignant reminder of what happens today. And no doubt, its release is rather timely. The original Conflict game sold well merely on the rumors of a war with Iraq.
Excerpt: In 1991, the US and the armies of the world, backed by the UN, came to the aid of Kuwait by attacking Iraq and the armies of Saddam Hussein. This is the setting for last year's Conflict Desert Storm title. Despite the first title receiving mixed results, a sequel was developed and is now available. Conflict Desert Storm II Back to Baghdad is set once again in 1991. If there are future versions of the franchise, I guess they may include the current Iraq conflict then.
