    The multiple teams, added tanks, verticality, precision fire, the stepped-up AI, and the much-needed multiplayer modes are all smart, value-added features. The game doesn't, however, advance much once you get going.
  2. Pandemic did everything they were supposed to do with a sequel, and Full Spectrum Warrior: Ten Hammers is a great game and a great follow-up to the original.
  3. The strategy elements and the point-and-click system bog the action down in this game.

    Realism in games isn't necessarily a good thing, as most players tend to be trying to get away from realism and into a fictional world.
  5. PC Format

    More expansion pack than full game, without the same level of challenge. [June 2006, p.89]
  6. The rigidly linear levels with obvious trigger points, the failure to evolve the basic gameplay and the newly random nature of the effectiveness of cover all conspire to devalue what was a novel and rather fun original.

    Some players will be creeped out playing soldier in a whitewashed mirror-universe version of an ugly war that's still in the headlines. The score is not being docked for it, but it's something that needs to be mentioned.

Game is great realtime tactics, controls are smooth. AI is bit of **** Playable characters are bad shooters sometimes, and sometimes they are also blind. For casual player bit of "strange" and if you are not interestet about realtime war tactics, its hard to love. But for real type of player this is perfect Expand

    Nice graphics, but flickering textures up to complete losses of sight in some situations are bad.

I played it on Xbox back in the day and loved it so when I had some spare cash and wanted something to play I picked up a copy off Steam for cheap. I fully recommend against playing this game on PC. On Xbox the game is well optimized and seemingly more polished. A reminder from the past that PC ports were usually just hacked together and thought of as second rate. On the PC there will be glitched textures and flickering glitchy text that sputters in and out which makes the tutorial next to impossible since the PC controls are so hard. You'll find your self holding down a combination of mouse buttons to confusingly navigate your squad. Buttons on the keyboard are seemingly randomly assigned to different tasks regardless of how easy they are to use. I tried using and Xbox One controller since I originally played this on Xbox and thought it'd be easier, however instead of using the Xbox controls they again seem to randomly assign buttons and of course it doesn't support Xbox 360/Xbox One controls so it just things each button is a number so I hope you have those memorized. Overall, the game is amazing but play it on original Xbox (or PS2, I've heard good things there) hardware. Expand

They gave up on the simplicity and usability from the first one. I haven't bothered to play past the first mission because the interface won't do what I want and end up getting myself killed everytime. Why bother? I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone. Expand

Меня хватило на одну миссию, как только я начал вторую, я не мог, просто не мог, эти перебежки ужасно скучны, эти перестрелки ужасно скучны, да и управление не очень. Expand
