    Joint Ops is a decent military-based shooter with a big gimmick. Frankly, it was interesting to see a hundred people online but the novelty is short lived.

    The graphics engine is the strongest point. This game is gorgeous to look at--but not quite as much fun to play. If and when players learn to get organized, it'll be a lot more rewarding, and hopefully Novalogic will even out the play balance issues before its inevitable sequel.
  3. When it works it works well and offers a very challenging online experience. The fun is hampered by both horrendous load times and the fact that you need a high-end system to coax performance from the engine. There are also some issues with unbalanced units, rampant camping, and the lack of any "functional" vehicles other than transportation.

    It does the hard stuff that most game neglect so well, but it either phones in or omits entirely the easy stuff. [Sept 2004, p.72]
  5. If you’re the patient and careful type it’ll suit you. Otherwise, you’ll have to put in a lot of effort.
  6. That game's big claim to fame is the size of its battles; 150 players can play on a single game map.

The things you can do with this game is awesome, Moding is easy, Map building easy. We even have a tournament which is great. Anyone out there who rads this and doesn't have Joint operations should try it. Full Review »
