  • Excerpt: When i first saw this game, i thought, wow i gotta have it! my first thoughts were that it was an FPS (first person shooter), but i was wrong. You control 2 US Army fire teams through, many missions. At first the game is very addictive, but then, you realise how easy it is, and how boring the missions are. I stopped playing it for some while, but now i have started to play it again and i am really enjoying it.
  • Pros: Great grahics, quality sound, very realistic
  • Cons: Boring missions, Third person perspective

  • Excerpt: I am a big fan of war games - as my list of X-Box games reviewed shows but I had on several visits to game pondered on purchasing Full Spectrum Warrior but decided against it. All doubts were cast aside when I saw it in the pre-owned bin for only £8 - alarm bells should have started ringing that the bin was only full of this game - this really should have told em something but it didn't - I could weep at my lack of common sense at times.
  • Pros: decent graphics  -  good sound effects
  • Cons: boring missions  -  third person perspective  -  very easy to complete

  • Excerpt: The first thing to get through your head is exactly what type of game Full Spectrum Warrior (FSW) is. This is a third-person tactical combat game set in an urban environment that shares more similarities to a real-time strategy (RTS) title than an action game. There is no God-like perspective which most RTS titles use, but the primary focus of FSW is to control two US Army fire teams (and occasionally a third) through various hostile settings in the fictional Middle...
  • Pros: something different
  • Cons: not halo

  • Excerpt: This was the very first game I bought for x - box and I must say that initially I had mixed feelings about the game. To be honest at first it didn't really appeal to me because I was expecting a totally different game. I was looking for a slick, first person arcade type shooter but what i got was totally different. Therefore Full Spectrum Warrior sat on the shelf for quite some time until I picked it up again a week or so ago.
  • Pros: Graphics and sound .
  • Cons: Repetitive game play .

  • Summary: FSW is a team based strategy game that was (allegedly) based on a similar programme used to train real soldiers in the US army. The game play itself is heavily strategy based. Running around with all guns blazing won't get you very far. In fact it get you to the end of the first street. The main thrust of the game involves positioning your teams, two groups of four, into covering positions so you can get a clear shot at the enemy.

Great presentation, no variety

  • Summary: Full Spectrum Warrior has a huge 'wow' factor by virtue of the great 'shakey embedded cameraman' style footage during play. The graphics manage to really capture and replicate typical coverage you might see of Fallujah on CNN. Behind this the game is very, very weak indeed, but the shallow wow factor is so great, that it almost makes up for any other lack of depth the game has.

  • Excerpt: Initially I was pleasantly suprised by this game being very much strategy driven, having expected something of a shoot-em-up (Conflict desert Storm Style). However as I played through the tutorial I became very annoyed with the 'gung-ho' things the soldiers in your squad constantly shout out. Every time you send your squad on a move, be it two meters or a mile they shout out things like 'let's go, move out' or 'alpha team let's rock'.
  • Pros: Looks impressive
  • Cons: Limited to 1 player game unless you have Live

the most realistic urban combat game ever!

  • Excerpt: This game was mainly being made for the US Army but its also been released publically(though with some weapon "secrets" removed). It's purpose is to train light-infantry troopers in urban combat behavior. And it does this very realistically! This game is as close as I have ever seen a videogame come to the real thing. You don't play any of the soldiers but you can give orders to them kinda like a strategy game.
  • Pros: very very realistic !
  • Cons: takes time to get used to .

  • Excerpt: Full Spectrum Warrior marks the beginning of a new genre in gaming; it’s unlike any other game out there, combining the squad based tactics of titles like Ghost Recon and fast paced strategy. Unlike other team based shooters out there, in FSW you don’t actually take direct control of your troops but instead, move them around the map with a context sensitive cursor and giving them fire sectors telling them which direction they should shoot in.
  • Pros: A third perspective real - time strategy game !  Not many of those about !
  • Cons: The missions are like puzzles .  Once you know how to 'do' them, they're done .
