  1. Everything from the menu screens to the game’s graphics has been revamped.
  2. Certainly isn’t a major departure for the series but the visible improvements and perfect additions make for an entertaining romp that’s decent enough.

    It's rare that a game with average sound, graphics and an uncooperative control system can still be enjoyed for hours at a time anyway.
  4. Mired by clumsy controls and spotty friendly AI, this sequel can't decide whether or not it wants to be a tactical realistic shooter or simply a run-and-gun arcade fragfest. [Nov 2003, p.114]
  5. As far as a war game goes, Conflict: Desert Storm II is fun and easy to play and it manages to be realistic without getting bogged down in its own intricacies. However, we did find the much vaunted AI to be flawed, which soured our overall enjoyment of the game.
  6. Conflict: Desert Storm II isn't without problems, but it's not the worst squad-based game you'll ever play, and it's decidedly improved over last year's game.
  7. Much of the disorder is unintentional. Like some half-assed high-school theater production, nothing works as it should and no one seems to be doing the right thing. [Dec 2003, p.202]

    Play this game with a friend and you will understand why I have given this game full marks. Yes the controls are a little quirky & the AI limited bu tthe joy of setting up a precise crossfire with four solidiers is second to none. This game is an improvement graphically & practically to the first one & deserves a try out for any TPS fans. Collapse

    Eh. It's good, but limited. If the game were BIGGER - more story, more Delta 'cloak and dagger' nonsense - then it might not become so stale so quickly. Expand
