    Absolutely tears up the modern-day war zone and even one-ups the "Battlefield" stranglehold in many areas.

    When it all comes together, Joint Ops is a great game that offers a solid combat experience on a scale far beyond anything in the "Battlefield" series. [Sept 2004, p.74]
  3. Any military FPS fan will absolutely love this game. The graphics and sound are top notch, and the multiplayer experience is second to none. For a MSRP of 40 bucks and no subscription fee, any fan of the genre will consider this a must have and well worth the money.
  4. When it really gets going, it's an exhilarating game of modern combat, albeit one that's also weighed down with some bugs and gameplay issues.

    Is Joint Operations better than "Battlefield 1942"? Yes, if all the pieces come together. But without good players backing you up and a well-populated map, you're screwed. [Oct 2004, p.96]

    Entertaining online war, in the shadow of beastly "Battlefield 2." [May 2006, p.96]
  7. That game's big claim to fame is the size of its battles; 150 players can play on a single game map.

    Dont listen to the reviews in the yellow. No functional vehicles besides transportation? I got bombarded on the beach by boats with grenade Dont listen to the reviews in the yellow. No functional vehicles besides transportation? I got bombarded on the beach by boats with grenade launchers, bombed by helicopters and mowed down by APCs the first time i played! horrendous load times? 20 seconds most....no more than call of duty and definitely less than UT2k4! But enough about that. The best part are the Co-op missions, because for the first time in any MP game ive ever seen, the squad tactics work and there is always someone of each class. If everyone goes sniper or runs around fragwhoring, you dont accomplish anything. In particular, try Operation Gothic Shield if you get the game. It's one of the most fun gaming experiences ive ever had. The day and night cycles, the sunset, the crickets, JO really makes you feel like your there. Expand

The huge sprawling battlefields and really exciting gameTill this day this is one of the best multiplayer shooters out there, no question. The huge sprawling battlefields and really exciting game play makes this a fun experience. Strategy is key to this game, not a run n gun like COD etc. What I love most is that many of the servers have battles that have an almost unlimited time limit so you can technically play this game for hours on end with the battle still raging when you finally log off, unless of course one team captures all the checkpoints. I remember playing one battle that raged for 15 hours once, HA. The graphics are dated, but what do you expect from a game 10 years old? WELL worth buying, even today, the expansions are fun too, and their are TONS of mods for this. Also, check out the taunts.... they are hilarious. HOOO RAAAAA!!!! Expand

    BHD was okay. This is ok. but there is way too much b*tch sniping and waiting to spawn time. The spawn camping sucks, and none of the servers BHD was okay. This is ok. but there is way too much b*tch sniping and waiting to spawn time. The spawn camping sucks, and none of the servers have friendly-fire turned on so the game gets boring quickly. It's okay, but there are other better games out there like BF1942, BF:V, Call of Duty. Expand
