"Don't bother with this game"
1 stars"

What a disappointment this game is. Quite UN-realistic combat. Real soldiers don't stand around in the open getting shot at waiting until you give an order – how pathetic the A.I. is in this game. If you want a simulation of how NOT to practice tactics this is it.

"Fun, but more puzzle than action"

If you buy this game, make sure you understand what it's all about. It's not an action game (but it can be fast-paced at times). It's about thinking and tactical planning.

Personally, I got tired of the single-player quite quickly, but playing cooperatively with another person (and using voice over IP to communicate in realtime) adds a whole new dimension to the game.

I'd just like to stress again – make sure you know what you're buying. Try the demo if you're unsure.

Also, setting the game up to play through a firewall is insane – up to 10 ports may need to be opened on both peers (and it's not really documented anywhere). I'll include those I needed to open:

UDP 6112 6500 279­00 27901 29910 TCP 6667 28910 29­900 29901 29920

I'm not sure all of those are necessary and I wasn't about to spend another hour eliminating them individually. In the end, it only worked in one direction anyway. Certainly not a firewall-friendly game.

This was my first exprience with squad based games. All I can say after playing this – bring em on.

Description

Persuasive in peace. Invincible in Combat. The U.S. Army is the most powerful ground force in the entire world. The backbone of a ground invasion is the U.S. Army Infantry, and in the midst of combat, their skills, courage, and teamwork are put to the test. Full Spectrum Warrior is based on a game commissioned by the U.S. Army to train light Infantry troops in urban combat situations. Soldiers are placed in a tense, hostile, and claustrophobic environment where they must complete a variety of military objectives. Players act as the Squad Leader, providing direction to Alpha and Bravo fire teams. The successful Squad Leader effectively uses cover in the environment and moves his fire teams in a coordinated fashion so they can protect themselves from possible attacks that could come from any direction. Full Spectrum Warrior puts you in the dirt with your men, where danger lurks around every corner. Note: This game is not sponsored or endorsed by the United States Army. Features:
  • Unique combination of tactical and action gameplay.
  • Authentic implementation of U.S. Army Infantry doctrine.
  • Simple control scheme lets you command eight soldiers in real time.
  • Squad equipment reflects real weaponry and equipment currently in use by the U.S. Army.
  • Incredible AI brings the soldiers to life.
  • Immersive urban environments with danger around every corner.
  • Rules of Engagement simulate real-world conditions and alter the difficulty level.
  • Engaging objectives keep your soldiers on their toes.
  • Realistic animations for squad members, modeled after a combat veteran who is also an active-duty Sergeant in the U.S. Army Rangers.
