  • Summary: The world's most deadly fighting force is back in all new multiplayer combat Delta Force: Xtreme 2 (DFX2) for the PC. The sequel to Delta Force: Xtreme is supported by the NovaWorld Community, a multiplayer network that provides smoother, faster and seamless gameplay for up to 150 players per game. With 10 single-player missions and nine co-op missions within two campaigns, players immerse themselves into the Delta Force experience by battling enemies in Asia. Now available for download from www.novalogic.com, Valve, Direct2Drive and RealNetworks and at retail locations nationwide, DFX2 carries the recession busting price of just $29.99 (MSRP). DFX2 offers intense military gameplay in stunning 1080p Full HD and Dolby 7.1 Surround sound, and with game servers placed strategically around the world, the NovaWorld Community provides the gameplay that fans demand. Featuring 20 content-rich multiplayer maps, DFX2 supports five of the most popular game types: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Team King of the Hill, Capture the Flag, and Flagball. Each detailed map has something for everyone, from large, vehicle heavy battlefields to small, intense engagement zones. In addition to the feature-loaded multiplayer experience, gamers of all skill levels can mix it up in two heart-pounding single-player or co-operative campaigns where players assume the role of a Delta Force operator sent to Asia to bring a drug cartel and former Soviet mercenaries to justice. The NovaWorld Community allows every element of the gameplay, from the enhanced ballistics to the innovative in-vehicle spawn system, to be carefully coordinated to support a fully balanced experience where teamwork is deadlier than individual firepower, and in DFX2, intelligence and creativity are rewarded as much as fast-twitch reflexes. The game also ships with a powerful MED level editor, which will allow gamers full utilization of game assets to create their own levels, including additional multiplayer game types.

  1. With its archaic graphics, dull missions and a flawed game balance, only the multi-player part saves this game from being a total disappointment. But that alone can't justify its existence.
  2. This "xtremely" forgettable first-person shooter doesn't excel at anything.
  3. Xtreme 2 succeeds as a budget game - it just doesn’t cater to any audience in particular. A lack of focus is the overarching problem with this decent budget title.
  4. 48
    The only thing that's "xtreme" about this game is how extremely mediocre it is. The missions are uninspired, the authenticity is lacking, the servers are under-populated but, hey, at least it looks dated, right?
  5. This game’s failure was perfectly described back in 1865 by Lewis Carroll: "Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!" You can't stop the progress.
  6. A general lack of polish that makes me wonder if NovaLogic even care about the games they make any more. [Dec 2009, p.74]
  7. Boring and repetitive, even in multiplayer. [Sept 2009, p.68]

    This is a step up from the original DFX as already mentioned with more guns to choose from and some awesome maps. I have always liked Nova games for the bigger maps and playstyle. You can't beat the price and I'm sure all the servers will soon be full, and you have all kinds of different "battlle tactics" to choose from in each map!!! there's something for everybody So what are you waiting for???

    I downloaded Delat Force Xtreme 2 from d2d. The download was fast(less than 1hr). For a fps game it has everything I want. The maps are endless worlds that you can navigate through. The guns look and feel "REAL". I have met many new gamers to play with. If youm think you are a good shooter, try this. I am getting better and having a blast. I'm doing this review because I had to tell others. Expand

    Well, it had problematic controls, graphics that aren't half as appealing as Battlefield 1942, bland gameplay and limited options. I was disappointed. Expand

    Granted, I haven't tried out the multiplayer aspect (nor do I plan to judging by others impressions of it), but this is perhaps the most generic shooter I have come across in quite a while. The first 'warning sign' which the user will notice as to the quality of the game is that there is no real support for widescreen resolutions, despite being a widescreen option in the graphics menu. This was initially surprising due to nearly every new release game supporting it for the past two years, however a look at the graphics engine quickly explained why this so. Put simply, the game looks like it came out five years ago even on the highest settings. Trees are cleanly cut in half when shot at while identical, badly textured enemies abound. This wouldn't be an issue were it for the gameplay itself being of decent quality, however it is not. The enemy AI is as basic as that of Doom, with the enemies either standing still and shooting (and missing) at the player or running in a straight line towards them, thus making them incredibly easy targets to pick off. There is no recoil in the weapons nor are they even any interesting. Hence, it is possible to merely run forward and shoot at any enemies one encounters without worrying about taking any damage; the one time I did was from an enemy only a meter or so away. The overall feeling is that of playing any generic FPS with cheats turned on; as a result the game has a complete inability to build or maintain any tension or intensity whatsoever. That said, I did have some minor fun with it occasionally, in a 'so bad it's good' kind of way. However, the lack of any challenge in the game means that it gets incredibly boring quickly. Having reasonably enjoyed both the original DF and Black Hawk Down it seems as if this series has finally gone down the drain after circling it with Xtreme, with this one being so bad I was humoured by it.

    Graphics are from the 90's. Bad playstyle. The beta was bad... this is worse. For alll the Nova lovers out there... Nova said "Gotcha" for this purchase. Early Nova games were classics.... this one is too.... classically BAD! Save the $... there are way better fps games out there right now (and more coming) to spend your hard earned cash on. Expand

    NovaLogic, you really need to stop making these low budget crappers for just the ultimate fanboys of the delta force franchise, as it is truly getting old and no one is going to buy this crap. Ai is non-exsistent, terrible graphics and next to no new content. You have really pulled the last straw this time... Not even a graphics update since the old DFX back in 2004? This game is worth $5.00 retail and for me, that is still too much. Expand
