  • Summary: In the year 2050, the United Nations and NATO have been replaced by the United Peacekeeping Force. Freshly recruited to the ranks, you must utilise a range of ground and air combat vehicles (including fighters, tanks and armoured assault vehicles) to enforce peace around the globe.In the year 2050, the United Nations and NATO have been replaced by the United Peacekeeping Force. Freshly recruited to the ranks, you must utilise a range of ground and air combat vehicles (including fighters, tanks and armoured assault vehicles) to enforce peace around the globe. Dropship's unique gameplay is a new take on the action genre, where your tactical decisions influence the success of the mission. A tense plot of political intrigue must also be negotiated if you're to succeed. From the mountains of Colombia to the wastelands of Kazakhstan, Dropship will call on all your battle skills in the struggle for victory. [SCEE] Expand

    The transition from flying a plane to steering a four-wheeled armored truck to shooting a gun in first-person view is smooth, addicting, and, best of all, keeps the pace of the action consistent enough for you to be involved to the very end. [July 2002, p.74]
  2. Stunning visuals, spectacular gameplay, and a realistic plot.
  3. Innovative, exciting, and once you look past the visuals (which aren't really awful, just plain), a truly great game to play.

    In essence, as military combat games go, Dropship is the jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none kind.
  5. Much like the plane you pilot, Dropship isn't a very pretty or elegant beast; but if you want some good airborne action, it gets the job done. [August 2002, p.78]
  6. Not for little kids, senior citizens or the easily-discouraged, Dropship demands serious commitment and many hours before revealing its true worth. Once it grabs you though, Dropship makes "Ace Combat 4" and "Lethal Skies" come across as trainee rookie simulators.
  7. 60
    The occasional high difficulty will alienate most players, though for those who can take the heat, Dropship is a great buy.

The game tends to lean towards being unfair towards the player at times, but they are pretty few and far between. A unique game in a genre dominated by Ace Combat and similar titles. Worth a purchase. Expand
