  • Summary: Full Spectrum Warrior is based on a game commissioned by the U.S. Army to train light Infantry troops in urban combat situations. Soldiers are placed in a tense, hostile, and claustrophobic environment where they must complete a variety of military objectives. Players act as the Squad Leader, providing direction to Alpha and Bravo fire teams. The successful Squad Leader effectively uses cover in the environment and moves his fire teams in a coordinated fashion so they can protect themselves from possible attacks that could come from any direction. Full Spectrum Warrior puts you in the dirt with your men, where danger lurks around every corner. [THQ] Expand

    It dares to do something different by taking an otherwise pretty stale genre and cramming it with innovation and creativity.
  2. The online portion really helps give the game added replay and depth to an already deep strategy game.

    Respect the idea. Respect the delivery. Respect the difference between this and every other action title around. But whatever you do, don't buy into FSW expecting the most polished game on PS2.
  4. Good overall, and it deserves credit for being something other than just another military-themed shooter or strategy game. It's just too bad that it isn't more involving.
  5. It's just not quite all that it could be. [June 2005, p.80]
  6. Fans of swearing in video games will also be pleased, as the friendlies have a tendency to shout "F**k" and "Sh*t" at the drop of a hat. Now that's authenticity!
  7. Since it’s not really an action game, and since it depends so heavily on graphics and control to even get anything out of it, I’d recommend the PC version over the PS2 or the Xbox.
