  1. The most important thing is that SWAT: Global Strike Team is just a damn fun game to play. I must say that I am a little disappointed about not being able to play online but the extra downloadable content through Xbox Live does help ease the pain.
  2. The presentation and setting aren't always quite up to par, but that's forgivable when the game's underlying action is so solid.
  3. The game is literally begging for a random scenario generator. Truth be told, creating one shouldn't be too hard either.
  4. The campaign missions do get a little repetitive.
  5. Just plain average. It’s not a terrible game; just that this has been done so much better in many other games.
  6. There are neat touches: you've got infinite ammo, brilliantly, and inhaling gas leaves you with a temporary cough that ruins your aim … but it needs a few more tactics to make it more than the sum of its admittedly solid parts. [Christmas 2003, p.116]

    O.k. so rainbow six beats this game to a pulp but this game is easier to play and get into and is a great game for beginners in the genre.

    SWAT: Global Strike Team is a game which seems to have been terribly underrated by a lot of reviewers. To call the voice recognition (you can give vocal orders to your cohorts) a gimmick is somewhat unfair as it does help immerse one into the game. Anyway, is a light gun in a game such as House of the Dead a gimmick? It's much the same scenario; something to make a situation you're never going to get into somehow more convincing. It works well. Additionally, the way there are separate missions for co-op and single player is marvellous and entices the player to play through in both modes. Overall, SWAT is probably going to be one of those games which goes pretty much unnoticed but deserves a lot more credit than it will get. Expand
