  1. A very fun team shooter. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking for some arcade team-based gameplay, which flows real nice and it’s addictive enough to keep you going till you finish the single-player portion.
  2. It doesn't cut it as a tactical sim or an action shooter, leaving you with a strictly mediocre title.
  3. If you like "military authenticity" but prefer button-mashing to tactical squad work, CDS is for you. [Jan 2003, p.110]
  4. Problematic gameplay and run-of-the-mill presentation.

    This game is honestly so terrible that it's incredible. I can completely understand why people would critically take this game for what it is and give it a bad review. However, I feel this is one of those cult games that just doesn't matter about flaws. This game is awesome/terrible! Collapse

    This is a really fun game. There are a lot of things that make this game fun, including challenging missions, interesting gameplay, and just all around fun. It is not really the best shooter game out there, but I think this game is actually pretty fun and deserves more credit than it actually gets. Expand

    Well honestly, Conflict Desert Storm is one of those games where i doubt it has aimed particularly high. It is a great squad shooter, and the graphics were pretty good when it was released. One part I did enjoy was the diversity of weapons. It made you feel like you had achieved something and you get a burst of excitement when you get to try out your new toy. Plus the AI were realisitic most of the time and were a challange when there is 4 of you and a dozen of them plus a tank.

    However, the story is very repetitive, as pretty much each mission after the training and 1st mission, is the same stuff in a different setting. I found the way to destroy a tank realisitic however it became extremely annoying when you run out of rockets in your rocket launcher and you have to send one of your guys with C4 to do the job, which usually ends up with him dying when you detonate. Also, not being able to pick up enemy weapons was a bit of a pain as well, especially when you run out of ammo with your rifle, down to your pistol and knife and there is still 1/2 a mission to go. The ammunition as well is an annoyance, as everytime you reload, no matter if you have even only fired one shot will make you throw away the whole clip,not just reduce that one shot from your main stockpile of ammunition like other games. It is an interesting game, with so much potential, however it just felt wrong in so many places. If a remake ever occurs, I would like to see an online mulitplayer with a more pleasurable experience and some new weapons, plus a better, more varying storyline for each mission and of course, modern graphics to give it that finishing touch.
