  • Summary: For almost two hundred years now, the French Foreign Legion has attracted adventurers from all over the world. One of them is Claude Boulet, a 26 year-old Parisian, brought up in harmony with tough street rules. The Legion was where he found his place, and it led him straight to the hellish African savanna. A revolution inspired by the African Revolutionary Group erupted in Ivory Coast. The FDSC government forces, and the European troops supporting them, were overwhelmed by a surprise attack. As a result the enemy possesses an impressive armory. Even worse is the fact that the rebels have taken over a transport of radioactive waste on its way from nuclear power plants. They now have enough material to create several "dirty bombs" that could threaten European countries. The risk of nuclear attack has forced the international community to intervene immediately. France has reacted the fastest by transferring the elite 13th half-brigade from Djibouti to Ivory Coast. Among the several hundred men is Senior Corporal Claude Boulet. Based on tests of character he has been appointed to lead the most difficult operation of the war. Never, in his darkest dreams, did Claude expect the trouble he found himself in. From now on he will always associate Côte d'Ivoire with the war path he had to tread in the defense of freedom and democracy. [City Interactive] Expand

  1. Sure, it's not a long game, the graphics aren't great and there are problems with the AI, but the game is so much fun to play that none of this really matters, especially not for the price tag.
  2. The driving model is so bad, it makes you wonder if anyone involved has ever been in a car. [Sept 2008, p.117]
  3. Overspeed is in all aspects a low budget copy of the Need for Speed game series. Lack of money means no licensed cars, poor and empty environments and obsolete technical design. The only reason to try this game is for the simple yet enjoyable multiplayer mode. [Sept 2008]
  4. Chronically poor AI and a lack of challenge aren't the only problems Code of Honor suffers from. The levels are highly linear and feel artificial, with areas boxed in by fences, barbed wire and impenetrable bushes.
  5. The level of professionalism in this game can be summed up by the fact that they haven't even bothered to translate all the text. [Oct 2008, p.73]
  6. Civil war that's harrowing for all the wrong reasons. [Sept 2008, p.91]
