  • Summary: Set in Somalia in 1993, Delta Force – Black Hawk Down is based upon and around the Operation Restore Hope and Task Force Ranger campaigns and follows members of the elite Delta Force and US Army Rangers as they participate in a number of daring raids against the oppressive Somali warlords in and around Mogadishu. Using the original PC version as a basis, British based developer Rebellion is redesigning the game specifically for the PS2. As well as a redesigned single player mode, Delta Force - Black Hawk Down will also have several brand new multiplayer features, including 32 player games online. NovaLogic has also teamed up with the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. A portion of the proceeds from the PS2 version of Black Hawk Down will be donated to the foundation. The SOWF provides college scholarship grants, along with financial aid and educational counseling to the children of Special Operations personnel who were killed in an operational mission or training accident.

    With a harrowing 16-mission single-player experience, and monstrous multiplayer arenas, this disc is worthy of your hard-earned per diem, grunt.
  2. A decent first-person shooter but it's based on the two-year old PC version. In this day and age of military, quad-based, tactical shooter, Black Hawk Down is a bit of a disappointment.
  3. The online support for 32 players might be enough for some to gather their money’s worth, but if you desire a challenging tactical shooter then there are certainly better choices on the market.
  4. An average and slightly dated shooter with an interesting background story. The PS2 version is inferior, I would not even dare call it the same game. [May. 05]

    You're pretty much just playing CTF and running around like a maniac. Once that gets old, BHD will get thrown into the closet.
  6. If more time had been spent polishing the graphics, enemy intelligence, animation and, erm, just about every other aspect of presentation, the good ideas could've had a chance to shine. Sadly, instead what we have is just another bloody war game, and not even a very good one at that.
  7. While not a spectacular failure, Delta Force: Black Hawk Down is just another ho-hum first-person shooter, offering a big multiplayer canvas but little else. I wouldn’t call it as unattractive as a live grenade, but I wouldn’t go jumping on it, either.

    This has pretty decent graphics and for those who compare it to others games..... just don't. It follows the story line fairly well. Hoooah!

    For the PS2 (an aging console) I was rather impressed. Could do better with online map selections and downloads.

    Save your money for Socom 3. I would only rent this game not buy. Those other people who rated this game a 10 obviously haven't even played it.
