Did the first 2 missions... a very good tactical shooter, not a "military simulation", but definitely not no Battlefield or Call of Duty clone, this is a TACTICAL SHOOTER! I dare anyone to try and play it as a run and gun...

The graphics are good, maybe just under great, the sounds are some of the best ever... hearing the chain links from the SAW dropping onto the rock surfaces.. wow... Trying to sneak to a target zone, using terrian... then having something huge open up next to you tearing up foliage, dirt, etc etc... looking up to see it's a enemy chopper spraying a 20 or 30 mm (whichever, I don't know)... running like hell to some nearby woods to get lost... incredible... calling in artillery, big guns etc etc... being one team in many... yep, don't let the nay sayers fool you, this is a tactical shooter...

and yes their are problems/issues... don't like the controls and movements too much, kinda gets me dizzy, lol... keyboard commands are weird and different, and call it lack of understanding but I can't figure out and read that map, maybe in time... AI is good, better then any other shooter but still not perfect.

It's NOT the king of tactical shooters, but it is a tactical shooter folks... play it as it was designed and you will see.

now some screens from the first 2 missions... and DAMN I keep running out of ammo... hate that...
























OK... need 3 buddies! ;)

WOW, no comments or questions? lol either no one here is interested or you guys know everything... ;)

It's getting a little frustrating... mainly running out of ammo ALL THE TIME, reading and understanding the map and command menu, and AI control... not that those are game killers, maybe more time with it and I'll learn...

IE: I've attempted one part of the 3rd mission 5 times already only to be slaughtered, and thats on normal difficulty, lol... a big danger area to cross with no support or other type of suppression... your 4 fireteam members against about 30 bad guys... I run out of ammo every time, even on single shot... my AI has a M203 attached but for some reason won't use the damn thing... ya, 4 player co-op would/will be the BOMB. ;)

Thats it for my comments, till my review.

see ya TG.

Screens look nice. It's good to hear that it's not COD or BF2. Now is the ammo thing caused by needing more rounds to drop a target or just a lot of targets?

10-07-2009, 10:32 AM
a lot of targets and a lot of misses, lol... got 2 videos i made, going up at SimHQ later... I'm no longer a SM, so all the pop ups and ads here are keeping me away... so I'll see you on XBL, when ready to play. ;)

Looks really nice. Cant wait to play it.

Yea, the Dev's seem to be really hyping up the sounds. Good they were telling the truth :D

Can't wait till Friday till i get my hands on a copy.

If anyone's interested there is a live broadcast going on here:


It will be live for an hour or so.

Hmmm....good question. Which to buy is next.

10-07-2009, 01:50 PM

Maybe he doesn't want to play with you?..........

Someone contact Wave

He's been hyping this for months. So much so I thought he was working for them!

Yea...I understand you can't run and gun. But after playing first mission. The sprinting is weird. It feels like your sprinting on a treadmill. Exerting so much force and you only go so far :P

Also...The flight dynamics are horrible.

Its a good game in my opinion. It seems as though the distance markers are a bit off. Running 10m doesnt seem like you really are and sprinting does seem odd..
I have only played a bit of single player but it seems as your Fireteam never shoots they just follow you around. overall fun game and it would be much better if co op was possible at this point in the game. Whenever i try to join a server it gives me a connection failed
