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.
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.

Pros: Looks impressive
Cons: Limited to 1 player game unless you have Live

To make matters worse whenever a new scenario was thrown at you i was dissapointed to discover that grenades were nearly always the solution.

Summary: I ordered this game before it was released, as I had seen it in a xbox magazine and the reviewers gave it a good review. I waited several weeks before it became available and it eventually came. When I played it, it was clear the graphics were probably the best and the most detail I had seen on a game ever. I remember I said to my dad, after only playing it on the first day that it was the best game I had on my xbox.
