    If you have the option I would strongly suggest getting either the Xbox or the PC version. This game was designed for a more powerful system and while the PS2 certainly tries its best, Full Spectrum Warrior isn't all that it can be.
  2. True, it can be maddening at times not having direct control. But if you want a game that strikes a more happy medium between direct involvement and squad command, I can highly recommend "Star Wars Republic Commando."

    It's just not quite all that it could be. [June 2005, p.80]

    The PS2 conversion of the puzzlish war game tries its best, but the game is just too big to conveniently fit inside a console. [July 05]
  5. 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!

    It's just a shame the actual game isn't more like the deeper, more realistic 'Army Mode' extra found in the Xbox version and not the limited, linear one we have here.
  7. The soft-focus haze of the original has inevitably suffered due the PS2’s lack of hardware anti-aliasing and indeed, the watery recreation here simply makes the low-res textures and dull palette look muddy and indistinct.
  8. 60
    A messy port of the year-old Xbox version, bearing disappointing graphics and sound.
  9. If you’ve played "Brothers in Arms" you will no doubt find Full Spectrum Warrior a less refined, more plodding title.

    Good game. Very cool. Keeping cover is key. It has a steath type feel to it. You move more methodically (strategically). It really gives you Good game. Very cool. Keeping cover is key. It has a steath type feel to it. You move more methodically (strategically). It really gives you the feeling your in a real war. I read reviews complaining about the "frame rate". It's really not an issue. The only time you realy notice it is when you send your troops long distances. Even then, it has a war gritty type of look to it. I highly recommend this game. If you like squad type war games - check this out. Full Review »
