SWAT 4 Gameplay Movie 8
Score distribution:

  1. Simply put, SWAT 4 is just about the best tactical shooter available. Its outstandingly realistic and gripping play delivers everything a tac-sim fan craves. Now, if you'll excuse me, there are more perps in need of cuffing.
  2. I will say, though, that the vibrant, stylish graphics and unique gameplay will have me choosing a night of SWAT 4 over "Counter-Strike: Source."
  3. 90
    They've managed to make non-lethal tactics both important and fun with great sound bytes, exciting tactics, and a good selection of weapons.
  4. For fans of the realistic tactical shooter genre, SWAT 4 is a definite must have, marking the rebirth of a series out of its own ashes. It was a 5 year wait, but trust me, it was worth every second of it.
  5. No one has tackled this subject quite like Sierra has and Irrational has done a stellar job in preserving the look and feel of the predecessor while adding modern amenities.
  6. 80
    If Irrational is able to speed up the player speed just a tad so that run speed and player movement is faster, if server admins are able to control the abuse of non- lethal equipment, and if server admins are given remote server control, then SWAT 4 would be just as spectacular for Multiplayer.

    A true 'thinking man’s shooter', then, and one that can be enjoyed by all those capable of engaging their brain before pulling the trigger. [June 2005, p.109]

    Great game. Unfortunately there's no official Multiplayer but LAN is still playable. I highly recommend it to everyone.

    Скажу честно, прошел до 11 миссии, но это просто капец, интеллект своих партнеров просто ниже плинтуса, если ты пройдешь миссию, то реальноСкажу честно, прошел до 11 миссии, но это просто капец, интеллект своих партнеров просто ниже плинтуса, если ты пройдешь миссию, то реально ощущения просто отличные, но печаль в том, что не ты прошел миссию, своими усилиями , а потому что ИИ партнеров хорошо сработало, и не тупили, в игре отличная атмосфера, и геймплей рили не плох, но игра морально и технически устарела, и я не про графон, противники то крутые то полные болваны, а самый бесячий момент, в том что с террористами, не может быть никаких ультиматумов, и это не тактический шутер, еще раз повторюсь,тут работает случай, если все хорошо сработает и твои партнеры сделают как ты сказал, то миссии будут проходиться с первого раза, но они идиоты, и тупят, а самый бесячий момент, в том что если ты убьешь террориста, а он просто убегал от тебя, то с тебя снимут очки, за то что ты не дал им шанса сдаться. Вообщем игра плоха во многих аспектах, но есть и отличные моменты, такие атмосфера и погруженость.
    П.С. но лучший плюс игры в том, лично для меня, что если игра г"вно, то лучше бросить и не парить себе мозги.
    П.С.С. обзор такой рваный и местами глупый, сделан специально, как и игра, она глупа и дурная.
