  1. Frustratingly, the game’s on-rails sequences exacerbate its lack of invention, whipping up enemies that often inflict damage before their location is revealed. When a single rocket can end the game by killing you or your entourage, this tests the patience more than a prosaic shooter has the right to. [Aug 2005, p.97]
  2. 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.
  3. What originally was a high quality, entertaining game, has really lost its way and I can’t think of many people who would be happy spending $50 for it.
  4. A gargantuan disappointment. With so many delays, one has to wonder how they spent the extra time. It certainly was not on the torrent of problems facing the game.

    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!
