  1. Everything in this title borders on barely functional, from the blurry graphics (no, that isn't Vaseline on your TV screen) to the imprecise targeting. [Aug 2004, p.96]
  2. The graphics aren’t going to wow you either with less then impressive textures, animations, and just plain graphical quality. The audio follows suit with scripted voice acting and a lack of sound effects that would make WWII come to life.
  3. It has the most idiotic aiming scheme in any WWII game.

    Combat Elite: WWII Paratroopers is a...well it's a decent game. I've certainly seem better but at the same time, I've seen far much worse. SoCombat Elite: WWII Paratroopers is a...well it's a decent game. I've certainly seem better but at the same time, I've seen far much worse. So I'll give it a bit of leeway in terms of my rating of it. The system may be clunky, what with Germans shooting you off screen. As well as a basic RPG element that really doesn't belong there. But the game is still fun, it'll keep you busy for quite a while, maybe even for a second playthrough. But this is weighted down by the issues above, add in a confusing mission layout, what with missions lasting anywhere for twenty minutes to like, twenty seconds. As well as basically useless allies in combat and a generic story.

    While it isn't the best game, Combat Elite: WWII Paratroopers gets a 6/10 from me. It has a few fun elements to it, but the overall bad system lowers its score. It's only above five because it kept me busy, I played through all three characters yet I wanted more. Fun but flawed game.

    This game is a fantastic WW2 game. Perfect for the begining gamer but to easy for the advanced. Since I am begining in this genre I give it a 9.
