  • Summary: Created under the direction of the US Marine Corps, First to Fight puts you behind the barrel of an M16-A4 as a Marine fireteam leader. Now it's up to you to lead your four-man team through the dangerous streets of Beirut in modern urban combat. In this first-person shooter, you can use the Marine Air Ground Task Force to call for fire and support from Cobra helicopters, mortar teams, other fireteams, tanks, and AAVs. Develop true military tactics such as laying suppressing fire, flanking enemies, separating leaders from enemies, and more. Expand

  1. The realism and authenticity of the game is amazing.
  2. I want to have fun when playing a game and that's just what First to Fight delivers: an action-packed FPS with all the adrenaline-pumping intensity you can ask for.
  3. With easy-to-get-into controls, fun mission scenarios and a highly addictive multiplayer mode this is a game that should not be ignored by those who have worn out their copy of "Full Spectrum Warrior" or "Rainbow Six 3."
  4. The game is not a bad outing by any standards, but it also just doesn't have the depth nor the sure fire power to hang with the other big boys that are already on the Xbox.
  5. Single player was only marginally enjoyable, but playing First to Fight on co-op mode is something you can do while your friend gets drunk, while you play some rock and roll in the background, and eat some pizza.
  6. An enormous let down in most regards. Many well done elements and innovative features are present in this title, but they just aren't executed well.
  7. Close Combat also includes co-op and deathmatch, but you'll only lose friends by exposing them to this trash. [May 2005, p.88]
