  1. Sure, there are some flaws but you can have some good fun edging your way through the missions and the Co-op mode is a godsend.
  2. In a game where individual acts of heroism are as important as a coherent plan, one brilliant feature is the rewards system. [XGamer]
  3. 77
    A very accessible title that seems well tuned for play on the console.
  4. Full of strategy, tactics, bullets, and explosions, this title is a fun diversion from current squad-based shooters.
  5. Though the game does have its high points, a fair collection of flaws and technical shortcomings hold the game back from being anything but a second rate game for only diehards of the genre.
  6. Controls take some getting used to, but they're not bad in the end.
  7. The horrid controls as well as the soddy graphical design and the wretched artificial intelligence all make this title a rent at best.
  8. 70
    With plenty of frenetic crossfire, you’ll get more frustrated with the controls than with the Iraqis.
  9. The story and mission objectives are great, but the game isn't polished enough to let the good points shine. [Nov 2002, p.136]
  10. While the multiplayer modes are nice, poor targeting, underwhelming graphics, and erratic movement make this game a mere blip on the radar. [Nov 2002, p.144]
  11. 60
    The environments are large, and while this is good for gameplay, it puts a strain on the graphics engine. Frequent fits of slowdown occur in the multiplayer mode if the screen is covered with too much activity.
  12. Despite its flaws, it certainly puts up a good fight...though I'm sure you'll find it to be just another mission among the many you've completed before.
  13. The controls are a bit herky-jerky at times. [Winter 2002, p.106]
  14. The interface and poor control are bigger enemies than the game's Iraqi soldiers ever are, and in the end, this is a game you can surely live without.

    I had so much fun with this game growing up, one of the few great xbox 4 player co-op games where you can load up a armored truck with 3 of your best buddies and take down some bad guys. Full Review »

    Terrible gameplay. Not great levels. Dreamcast graphics. What else can i say.

    Horrible controls. Difficult to aim and I swear it's just got some bugs... very frustrating. If it weren't for the difficult controls, it would be a great game. Full Review »
