    Just misses a top-shelf rating due to some nitpicky decision-making routines.

    To say that I was bored while playing this game would be accurate... The quintessential throw-away game. [Feb 2003, p.102]
  3. It does give fans of the genre something new to try, though many will surely feel as though they've played this game before.
  4. While the overall idea is innovative, the gameplay itself isn’t. However, there are a lot of missions to get through - 26 standard missions and 16 branching ones - so you won’t be finishing this in a weekend.
  5. There are plenty of objectives to complete and items to unlock, but ultimately the action can get a little repetitive and stale.

    What it lacks in substance, it makes up for in brilliance, and while we're averse to rewarding style over substance, in this case, we can't really deny the game's addictive appeal. [Feb 2003, p.73]
  7. It is hectic fun that's packed with (largely mindless) violence... It soon gets repetitive though with most missions involving similar enemies and following a similar structure. It is a good blast however.

    A nice balance of action and strategy, as well as a remarkable technical achievement. [Feb/Mar 2003, p.78]

    Nice graphics, nice cutscenes. The gameplay is similar to Gunmetal. The battles are big, feels like you are playing c & c generals in first Nice graphics, nice cutscenes. The gameplay is similar to Gunmetal. The battles are big, feels like you are playing c & c generals in first person flight shooter. There are plenty of levels to staisfy. There are some racing level etc to unlock in goodies menu. The codes for god mode are there. Plenty of combat vehichles and soldiers take the fight in the battle. You feel that there was strong effort made by the development team. Full Review »
