    Even better than the original! The game features more, better looking textures, maps, weapons and more! The graphics seem to be somewhat improved and the gameplay is more balanced out. Perfect game for any gamer! Worth the buy! Just NOTE that you will need to buy "Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising" before you can play this one. ;)

    Most underrated game of all time, still playing after 5 years, every Sunday in 100 to 160 player organized Battles. Custom maps every week. Best bang for your buck.

  1. Helps make the Joint Operations experience an interesting and engaging one, though be prepared to face a noticeable learning curve and some frustrations at first.
  2. My experience on NovaWorld was much better this time around. [Jan 2005, p.143]

    Although hit detection has been spread to body zones, making it so that a sniper can't shoot your foot and kill you, motion capture isn't as satisfying as ragdoll, especially after "Painkiller," "Half-Life 2," and "CS: Source."
