  1. This is not a game to be approached by the casual action gamer. There is a lot of strategy, planning, and even some character building required to achieve maximum effectiveness and mission success.
  2. Each crevice is likely to hold trigger-happy snipers, each road blocked off with mortar crews. Fighting is far more intense this way and navigating the streets of Baghdad can be a nerve-racking experience.

    It takes the realism high road and emphasizes the "tactical" and "squad-based" elements of its genre and forces gamers to adapt to its style and rewards those who do.
  4. Anyone who’s looking for a game where you can run around shooting everything in sight, look somewhere else. But if you enjoy war games, you should definitely check this game out.
  5. This title would have been better if the design was more polished and the controls were more sophisticated.
  6. Conflict: Desert Storm II isn't without problems, but it's not the worst squad-based game you'll ever play, and it's decidedly improved over the original game.
  7. For those expecting massive advancements or a radical departure from the original, this will come as a disappointment. A more honest, realistic assessment would be to treat this as a mission pack, and for those who do just want more of the same, you'll come away a satisfied customer.

    Conflict Desert Storm is a good squad based combat action game. If you are a fan of military warfare, first person shooters, or like games with action this game is for you. The graphics are decent. My game froze one time but that may be due to the Gamecube, same sitituation gamers had with Metroid Prime. Sound effects are awesome. The sound just the way an actual M-16 or other weapon for that matter would sound. Control takes some getting used too. It took me a while to get a feel for the controls. Slight mistakes could cost you or your crew their lives. Once you become accustomed to the controls the gameplay increases. AI isn't the greatest but that maybe because I started on the Easy mode. The game has three modes, Easy, Medium, and Hard. As for Gameplay, it increases with play. As you get used to the feel and play of the game, the game enhances in excitement and action. This game features a multiplayer for up to 4 players simultaniously. Communication and knowlege of equipment and control is key to squad success. This is an excellent game to get four players along and enjoy some squad based action. The play is easier then other comparable games on the market in the same genre. I rented this game and didn't expect much out of it. Mainly because of my experience with Conflict Desert Storm. This game, like most video game sequels, outperform their predecessors. This game has lot to offer for the individual gamer to the multiplayer one. There are lots of equipment, modes of assault, and delivery of weapons. Any gamer looking for a squad based action game should look no further. Collapse
