  • Summary: Full Spectrum Warrior is based on a game commissioned by the U.S. Army to train light Infantry troops in urban combat situations. Soldiers are placed in a tense, hostile, and claustrophobic environment where they must complete a variety of military objectives. Players act as the Squad Leader, providing direction to Alpha and Bravo fire teams. The successful Squad Leader effectively uses cover in the environment and moves his fire teams in a coordinated fashion so they can protect themselves from possible attacks that could come from any direction. Full Spectrum Warrior puts you in the dirt with your men, where danger lurks around every corner. [THQ] Expand

  1. A game like no other. It almost rises above the definition of the word “game”, but you can’t argue that there is a lot of challenging fun and addictive gameplay to be found in this attractive package.

    The interface works a whole lot better on the PC, and if your machine is up to running it all maxed out, then it will look that much cleaner. All this aside, however, the game itself is intense and utterly engrossing.
  3. Probably one of the best tactical military shooters I've played. It's authentic, gritty and highly original in the way it was executed. And it requires you to use your brains for a change.
  4. It's beautifully simple, but also brings an element of tension as there's always a few seconds between issuing commands by tapping the left mouse button, and seeing them carried out on the battlefield.
  5. I just wish there was more of it to enjoy, and something has to be done about the multiplayer - it just wasn't enough. If ever there was a game that cried out for a sequel, Full Spectrum Warrior is it.
  6. Ample proof that thinking men are welcome in the modern army.
  7. More a glimpse into how a real Army fire team moves and engages enemy forces than it is a challenging real-time strategy game.

    "A game that makes sawing your own penis off seem like a worthwhile endeavor, just to avoid passing on the experience to any children you might've had. 10/10, best horror game I've ever played." Aug 19, 2011

    Who reviews a game 7 years after release and judges it by today's standards wow, please get a clue.
    Once was a great game at time of it's release, unfortunately has not aged well like most old games. Free copies now exist

    AaronD referred to this as "anti muslim american [sic] junk."

    Apparently, he doesn't like it when innocent people defend themselves against
    jihad.

    You know, Aaron, if you want less "anti muslim" sentiment, get your coreligionists to stop murdering people.

    No more beheadings, no more bombings, and -- Poof! -- No more hostility toward those who practice "kill the pagans wherever you find them" (Qur'an 9:5).

    A game that makes sawing your own penis off seem like a worthwhile endeavor, just to avoid passing on the experience to any children you might've had. 10/10, best horror game I've ever played.

    But at least it didn't crash.
