    Turn the difficulty up and accept that it's not Rainbow 6 or Halo and you're in for a decent tour of Somalia. No, it's not much like TimeSplitters either and I'm sorry that shanty downs in an extremely poor country aren't very varied. I'd say that's because their shanty towns. It does, however, follow the Blackhawk Down story very well.

    Decent character models and some nicely rendered desert locales. Your squad members are virtually useless except for tossing you the occasional ammo and providing some health. Enemy AI is inconsistent and soundtrack is annoying-voiceovers become especially repetitive ("Hell of a shot!") Overall, entertaining and better than MOH EA but not a game with high replay value.

Personally, I'm looking forward more to SOCOM III and COD: Big Red One. Collapse

    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. If that's not enough carnage, you can also engage in 32-player (50 on Xbox Live) online deathmatch missions, which is technically twice the bloody chaos of "Halo 2."

    With a harrowing 16-mission single-player experience, and monstrous multiplayer arenas, this disc is worthy of your hard-earned per diem, grunt.
