  1. As a solo game, Team Sabre is a bit lacking.
  2. At £19.99, this is a highly impressive add-on, and although it has only 11 new single-player levels, none of them is a walkover.
  3. Bad A.I. and no realism, but who cares? The nonstop rat-a-tat-tat of automatic weapons in hostile environments gives Team Sabre its charm. [Apr 2004, p.91]
  4. Anyone who doesn't already have BHD has been missing out on one of the best FPSs of recent times, and Team Sabre is just icing on the cake. [Mar 2004, p.112]
  5. Reasonably basic improvements.
  6. In short, if you own the original or a similar game go buy a copy you'll love it. Everyone else should keep their sanity by going out, buying a good book and reading it.
  7. The new missions are interesting, and the new weapons nice enough. Since this is a $19 addon you’re getting a fair amount of fun for your money.
  8. 74
    The longer sight lines make for more challenging gameplay, and the large servers allow a dynamic that makes every round a different experience. The single player game, however...it needs work.
  9. Team Sabre may not be realistic, but it's packed with explosions, wild gunfights, and quite a bit of fun--though it's also extremely frustrating at times, due to a limited save system coupled with some excruciatingly difficult gameplay.
  10. More of the same with a few bright spots. There will be good times, as well as frustrating ones - but with a street price of $17.99, it's not at all bad.
  11. When it works, it works really well and it's a better game than the original. Unfortunately, the expansion doesn't work well all the time. In addition to that, its single-player facet is not particularly lengthy even if it is a bit harder and has lengthier missions than the original.
  12. It’s an incredibly thin expansion pack, even considering the el-cheapo price tag.
  13. While it’s nothing spectacular and it won’t last you forever, it’s a far more appetising than picking up one of the older games in the series up on budget.
  14. It seems as though the game tries too hard to grab your attention. Like an annoying child, Delta Force: Black Hawk Down: Team Sabre forces you to comply by sheer redundancy.
  15. 60
    If you're a Black Hawk Down multiplayer junkie, you'll probably get your money's worth just from the three jungle maps. But everyone else should probably save their $20 until Novalogic offers something more substantial.
  16. First up is the AI, which, for both the enemy and your squad, is simply dreadful. [Apr 2004, p.66]
  17. As a pure single-player action game, the expansion is a mixed bag, but there's still some great gaming to be had with the whole "Black Hawk Down" experience. [May 2004, p.64]

    I've played every Delta Force game since the original - but Team Sabre has by far the poorest single player campaign of the series. I've played every Delta Force game since the original - but Team Sabre has by far the poorest single player campaign of the series. Enemy and friendly combat and pathfinding AI is weak. Both sides will shoot continuously into hills and walls and get trapped in corners. No one takes cover or has a sense of self preservation. Team mates will shoot anything that gets in their firing line (including you and other squadmates). I had to restart a mission because, even though all mission objectives were met, one of my teamates wouldn;t get in the helicopter to end the mission. I must have completed something in the wrong sequence. I've never played a game where shooting the gunner of an APC or hiting it with 3-4 rounds from an assault rifle will cause it to explode. You can throw hand grenades 400+yards. There literally is no need for the anti-tank weapons - simply take out armored vehicles with your trusty Colt 45 sidearm. This add-on had lots of bugs and felt like it was released incomplete. The original BHD was much better implemented. The multiplayer is the only saving grace. Full Review »
