  • Summary: It's early 21st century and the majority of the world's countries have created the International Corps for Peace, an organisation dedicated to bringing about world peace. However, not all countries are keen to be involved and these persist in generating conflicts through the organisation GHOST. A secret organisation, which warrants only the economic interests of its members without any attachment to morals, GHOST, does not hesitate to create crisis situations with the goal of destabilising the world-wide equilibrium and endanger any chance of peace.

  1. It’s overly confusing without even rewarding the diligent player with a satisfying payoff. There is no, and we mean NO, sense of satisfaction in victory.
  2. You shouldn’t be buying Combat Zone for its graphics, or the sound. You should really be getting this one for its gameplay. Thankfully, it does not disappoint in this respect, nor in the sharpness of the AI exhibited therein.
  3. The passion, excitement and horrors of war elude Conflict Zone.
  4. An entirely average game. [Dec 2002, p.158]
  5. The camera control is difficult to use and the button layout requires a PHD to master. [Jan 2003, p.42]

    Technically flawed in a myriad of ways and far less superior to just about any RTS on the market, Ubi Soft's PC turned DC to PS2 effort is an unfortunate waste of time.

    The whole game is embarrassingly shoddy. From the glitch that prevents sound from playing during the opening cutscene, to the finger-cramping control scheme, Conflict Zone fails to ever become fun.

    This game is the bomb after a close consideration i would go with GHOST over the ICP mainly because they are easy to control and can have more units but when i want a challenge i change i suggest that newbies try the GHOST team AFTER! trying the turutorl but those F@%$*@% criDICs cant tell a good game they are way to up tight if there was no cridicts this game would be a best seller because it is so addicting F#$% the corporate World!!!!

    I have some problems with the game, (like how the people's mouths keep moving even after they are talking.) But overall it is not a bad rental or buy if you can find it cheap (real cheap) it's 2003 now and i think this game is still pretty fun. hard, but fun. Expand

    Something desperately lacking on console systems are indeed RTS titles. Conflict Zone fills that need, for now, anyway. Given the $20 price tag, CZ is worth the coin for those newbies/dabblers in the RTS realm. Although the controls take some time to master, it's definately not a flawed control scheme by any means. If you are expecting Command and Conquer: Generals, you will be totally bummed out. Of course, C&C is a $50 PC title for hardcore RTSers with serious caffeine addictions. CZ is as pick up and play (yet still feels like an RTS) as you can get. Not everyone has the time or patience for a full blown RTS title. The single most annoying aspect of CZ is the audio. sometimes it cuts out completely in the middle of a campaign! The soldiers/units annoyed the hell out of me repeating the same 3 or 4 phrases over and over and over. As for the complaints about the goofy or disturbing FMV sequences, who cares?! FMV's don't make or break a game for me, probably because I'm not one of those people who watch RPG's. Oh, sorry, I meant to say, play RPG's. Expand

    my esteemed companions and i found this atrocious piece of excrement to be tedious, underdeveloped, and ecruciatingly unrewarding. i can hardly say i was compelled to save a beaver from an ogre while my seemingly braindead siblings wondered around in a state of confusion and i was being bludgeoned to death. this game was a prime example of selling crap to the masses to prevent them from doing playing anything remotely decent which might hold they're attention long enough to prevent them from buying more. the disturbing violence in this game doesn't quite reflect the CHILDREN'S BIBLE STORY element, and the plot was a repetitive piece of waste, and our time would be better spent on DDR.
