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.
Pros: Great grahics, quality sound, very realistic
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...
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.
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.
Excerpt: Something that has to be said about full spectrum warrior is that this aint going to be what you expected i bet many of you will think you run around blasting people well wrong this game is about making decisions.The characters are based on americas army....
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.
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.
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.
Pros: Looks impressive
Cons: Limited to 1 player game unless you have Live
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!
