Editors' Review

This combination of real-time strategy with tactical action wows at the beginning with is graphics, but already in the demo the gameplay becomes quite repetitive. You command a squad of eight US soldiers on missions in Middle East urban areas. Full Spectrum Warrior does have an atmosphere of US army. Voice comments, top-notch graphics, and realistic weaponry add to the mood. We were impressed by the in-game tutorial, which familiarizes you with the game s mechanics. However, the gameplay doesn t feature much variety. A typical mission is a linear consequence of fights, where your enemies will hide behind cover and shoot with assault rifles or throw grenades, while your soldiers will hide behind cover, too. To defeat fortified enemies you can flank them, throw fragmentation grenades, or cheat them with smoke grenades. Soldiers hiding behind objects or a corner of a wall are completely invulnerable, and it is best to place them there to attract enemy s attention, while another soldier of your team crouches from behind and cuts them in half from a close distance. Full Spectrum Warrior features a nice control system: you move soldiers like in real time strategy (though the camera is bound to your team) and you can always see if the position where you are going to move your soldier is behind cover or not. Also, your soldiers are quite smart and save you form micromanagement. Full Spectrum Warrior is a good game for all tactical action and RTS fans, though this 300MB demo may be too much a luxury to load.
