    A genuinely fun game that only misses out by virtue of low production values. A multiplayer would have been fun, but apart from that it's got everything you could ever wish to encounter in a budget shooter.
  2. Whilst the game won't be winning may prizes for originality or longevity, it is a very solid action title with good gameplay and a level of physics that has remained elusive in other titles.

    These repeated cheap deaths make the sparse checkpoints and the lack of a mid-mission save feature all the more obvious. At least there are no load times between deaths. [Aug 2005, p.85]
  4. Sound effect glitches, endless enemy spawning and strange enemy placement, repetitive enemy types, and the always-entertaining getting-shot-at-through-walls feature inflict quite a degree of damage on Nemesis Strike's other more noble attempts.
  5. It's a trite and aggressively boring version of what a million other third-person action games have done. And even for its budget price, it's a pretty lousy value.
  6. However the length of the game is increased by the furiously frustrating trial and error game play and super accurate guards on occasion.

Special Forces: Nemesis Strike is certainly not one of them. Barrels of gasoline near almost every enemy, helicopters with life bar. In a strange way this game reminded me good, old-school 2d shooters, like Contra. You will have two characters, not at the same time, of course, but they will change each other from stage to stage. First one is a real bad ass spy, kinda Sam Fisher. Game process itself of course not as half realistic as Splinter cell, though I think its only for good. Our second character don't need to hide. Even appearance of his huge testicles make his enemies run in fear. Playing for both of these two appeared to be a lot of fun for me. The conclusion is: If you get tired from modern games, and all the realism developers try to put in them, you can relax for a while, shooting terrorists without making your brain work. There will be no complicated tactical decisions, and I can guarantee: you won't even think about storyline, because in this game, it doesn't matter. Full Review »
