    Not a bad game. Could be better. The lag is horrible for a game that was touted as having virtually no lag. The graphics are well shy of what other shooters have done. The Campaign isn't that fun. Some maps are so small that Spawn camping (Although you have like 3 sec invincibility) becomes a serious problem. When it starts to lag too much you get a "This Game Session Is No Longer Not a bad game. Could be better. The lag is horrible for a game that was touted as having virtually no lag.

Some maps are so small that Spawn camping (Although you have like 3 sec invincibility) becomes a serious problem. When it starts to lag too much you get a "This Game Session Is No Longer Avalible", thing right across your screen which makes it difficult to snipe, sometimes when it lags like that you reload over and over and over, did I say over? Its a decent game, a game for being as old as it is should have been priced at 29.99. If I had a choice right now Id pick up Ghost Recon 2: Summit Strike over this just for the better gameplay less lag and great price tag. Expand

    Online is solid,50 players is insane,in a good way.single player isn't so solid.graphics are blah,lag is blah,and gameplay is super blah,I was so tired of all the World War 2 games,so I expected a little more out of a game,which features a war/conflict that was'nt so famous,this ones defintely a renter.

    Alright, nothing special, and then again, nothing too bad. Worth the online play. BF2 still reigns.

    Good game, very good online. The only thing this game lacks online is actual missions (like in SocomII). The whole respawn thing gets kinda repetitive.

    This game is so revolutionary! It's the only broadband game to ever play like it's on dial-up. Now that's never been done before. 50 players my ass! It can barely handle 10 without locking up or putting the laggy message across your screen so you can see nothing. Graphics are terrible, sound and animations are of PS1 calibur. Spawn points are the most unthoughout spawn This game is so revolutionary! It's the only broadband game to ever play like it's on dial-up. Now that's never been done before. 50 players my ass! It can barely handle 10 without locking up or putting the laggy message across your screen so you can see nothing. Graphics are terrible, sound and animations are of PS1 calibur. Spawn points are the most unthoughout spawn points ever. Even worse than GR2's spawn points. Weapons are innaccurate unless you're a bastard sniper. Even the so-called dedicated servers lag like a PS2 game with dial-up customers on it. I guess they're dedicated to lagging and not working for more than 5 minutes before locking up. Just stay away from this failure or you'll be sorry when you have 40 kills and the game session just magically ends and you lose all your points and kills. What a waste of bandwith this game is once you actually get into a game online, which takes at least 10 minutes each time. This game should have died on the PC where it belongs. And they asked $50 for this $10 garbage bin game. Expand

    If you're not an Xbox Live subscriber then steer away from this like a marine-filled armoured truck would steer away from a street full of RPG-wielding Somalians. If you're into your shooters and fancy a change, you might just like this - it's no Halo 2 but it has real charm and personality, once you settle into the flow.

    In order to get any challenge or satisfaction from Rebellion's dustbowl shooter, it must be tackled on the hardest difficulty setting right away; only then will Black Hawk Down demonstrate any of the depth or well-implemented tactical elements it has to offer. [Sept 2005, p.110]
  3. Having enjoyed limited success on the PC, this console port comes off a bit uninspired, plagued by dated visuals and poor enemy AI.
