  1. The single player game will hold your attention and you'll get more mileage out of it if you play on the harder difficulty settings, but the real secret to milking everything out of this one is the online co-op mode.

    Global Storm feels like the true heir to the Conflict: Desert Storm games in more than just surname, and remains a worthy war effort, despite there being other games that may do it grander or deeper. [Nov 2005, p.102]
  3. Until Pivotal finally delivers a game where the enemies don't run at you like angry suicidal goats, and teaches your squad-mates to find proper cover it's never going to be worth more than the 6/10 score we slap on it every single year.

    The action is satisfactory, and the multiplayer options are robust. [Nov 2005, p.148]

    The poor AI is inexcusable and very frustrating.
  6. 60
    Dedicated fans of the series will find a challenge, but the cumbersome controls and questionable AI remain most effective kill-joys.

    Conflict: Global Storm is such an improvement over the debacle that was Vietnam that it's amazing to think they came from the same developer. [Nov 2005, p.118]
  8. Like the previous games in the series, Global Terror offers some redeeming value as a shooter, but poor execution on certain aspects, such as the AI, keeps the game from distinguishing itself.
  9. A middle of the line squad based game that fans are going to get enough out of. Others won't be as impressed and may not make it through.
  10. Sadly, poor enemy and ally AI make for a frustrating action game that could have been better than this.
  11. 60
    For a budget-oriented game, it offers plenty of shooting gallery fun and big explosions, and the missions are pretty long. But in the end, the relatively rudimentary AI made me wistful for "SWAT" and "Hidden & Dangerous."
  12. Official Xbox Magazine

    What it lacks in hardcore squad dynamics, however, it makes up for with its funky soundtrack, detailed graphics, and semi-tactical gameplay. CGT is competent, but not outstanding. [Dec 2005, p.110]
  13. A fantastic multiplayer showing is belittled and stifled quite a bit by a rather disappointing single player mode. AI is this game's true failure which is a real shame considering the strides it has made in other areas.
  14. The most flexible and feature-laden Conflict game yet, with a particularly tasty co-op mode.
  15. A well balanced 3rd person action game that is surprising in length, multiplayer, interactivity, gameplay and graphics.
  16. For the fourth game in the series some of the main problems like team and enemy AI and dodgy controls should have been fixed long ago.

    This game is UNPLAYABLE! I couldn't play for more than 30 minutes. Ok, there is no cover system. That wouldn't be a problem if they didn'tThis game is UNPLAYABLE! I couldn't play for more than 30 minutes. Ok, there is no cover system. That wouldn't be a problem if they didn't stick you with AI as thick as bricks. Also, you can't let your partners die, and they just stand in the open shooting blindly, wondering why they've suddenly grown chest vaginas. This also wouldn't be a problem, if it didn't take a med kit to get them back up, so you will run out very quickly, and when you do, you might as well commit suicide because you're screwed. This game didn't even get the dignity of getting used as a frisby until it shattered. I just broke it into as many pieces as I could before throwing it and the box into the dust bin. Trust me, it's better in there than it is in any XBox. I'm sure the online is ok, but a game has to stand up on single player, because there are always factors in the way of multiplayer, like the cost of Live for one, and connection strength.

    You must be mad to not love this game. The single player does give great game play and with the xbox Live stats it really did make me keep You must be mad to not love this game. The single player does give great game play and with the xbox Live stats it really did make me keep going back to single player to get higher in the ranks and with the online co-op this must be the only game in which you are working to get above everyone esle but at the same time trying to help out your friends or random players new to the game.
