    And to top it all off, Lockdown features Lifetime channel–style scenes that do their damnedest to to make you think of your squad mates as real pals instead of the "meat shields" they really are.
  2. It’s still above average and the multiplayer modes are worth investing time in if you’ve enjoyed them before.
  3. Beyond the P.E.C. mode and faster gameplay, not a whole lot has changed since Black Arrow, which disappoints even the most meager expectations for change.
  4. Though Lockdown is still a worthwhile shooter, its overall feel may leave longtime fans wondering if the developers have finally strayed too far from the game's roots.

    Given the spotty AI, the crummy animations and slightly-above average graphics, it's hard to get excited about much in Lockdown be it offline or on.

    Maybe with better graphics and gameplay, Lockdown would have stolen some of "Ghost Recon's" thunder. As it stands, it's a notch dumber, and a notch less fun, an average urban shooter plays FAR better when your opponents are human. [Oct 2005, p.82]

    It's a lackluster, repetitive experience that will only appeal to the most Clancy-crazed gamer. It's not terrible or broken, but I've been doing the same thing, with the same problems and frustrations, for years. [Nov 2005, p.141]
