  1. A great mix of tactical shooter and strategy based gameplay that, although fun, stumbles a bit due to the limitations within the game.
  2. It’s this lack of real replay and major feeling of linearity that I feel many will be turned off sooner than later.
  3. Oh, and one final message to the developers, a little note for next time-if you're not going to bother making your characters able to climb stairs, a good way to disguise this massively unrealistic shortcoming is to not put any stairs in the game! Something to keep in mind.

    From the wreckage of its weak structure and thinly spread action, the auspicious concept of Full Spectrum Warrior emerges a damaged, substantially broken vessel. Its strengths, however, are such that only a fool would dismiss it at this juncture.

    Lacks depth in all areas. In any given situation there are only a few options available to you. The game is linear and scripted which means that you can learn by trial and error. Events in a game of this nature should be randomized since that's how a war is experienced.
  6. While the graphics and overall presentation rock, the gameplay is hampered by a lack of depth, length and intricate strategy, leaving this warrior a few medals shy of the full spectrum.

    You move, you die... repeat. A game that makes you think about what you do before each and every step and is therefore tense as all hell. ThisYou move, you die... repeat. A game that makes you think about what you do before each and every step and is therefore tense as all hell. This is not a fun game, and is better for that. Full Review »

    The Game Play had a huge learning curve, i had to do about fifteen different things to get my guys to move 15 yards, The Realism is great, The Game Play had a huge learning curve, i had to do about fifteen different things to get my guys to move 15 yards, The Realism is great, and if you like a game where you just command and dont really do any of the fighting this one is for you. but if you like to hold the gun, then wait for something like Tom Clancy or Medal of Honor.
