    BHD was okay. This is ok. but there is way too much b*tch sniping and waiting to spawn time. The spawn camping sucks, and none of the servers have friendly-fire turned on so the game gets boring quickly. It's okay, but there are other better games out there like BF1942, BF:V, Call of Duty.

    If you think Blackhawk Down was a great game, you obviously are not a picky gamer. To Joint Ops credit, it is a cut above Blackhawk Down. However, as with all the Nova Logic games, the feel is not as smooth as the venerated UT2004. Controls feel clanky, and the animations are average. If you are a diehard Bf1942 fan, then don't pass this game up. However, if you are a dedicated If you think Blackhawk Down was a great game, you obviously are not a picky gamer.

  1. What it does have, though, is rock-solid netcode and the most exquisite balancing and map design I've ever seen. [Aug 2004, p.104]
  2. It is much more suited towards the serious cyber solider rather than the ex-quake junky with its heavy dependency on tactics and planned strategies, and whilst it is far from perfect itself, the detail and depth offered in Joint Operations is quite exceptional to say the least.
  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.
