"A darn good game"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I think this game came at a really unfortunate time. Overshadowed by Company of Heroes, JTF is actually a pretty darn good game. At first you might not get used to not having to build a base. Units are airdropped in in exchange for resources you earn by completing objectives. However where the game really shines is the micromanagement. Sure ‘micro’ is not for everyone, but I personally loved driving individual units (which you can do by alt-clicking a unit) and nothing beats annihilating other units, buildings and other structures with the beefy units like the M1A1 tank or the apache gunship.

Sure you don't get massive battles with thousands of units, but skimishes are the way of the future battlefield.

Highly recommended!

"MEH"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Take one pile of resources turn it into units and send it against another pile of resources turned units and watch the spreadsheet / ms excel fight it out , and its about as exciting as that. If you have advanced stratagy including pincer and flanking manovers forgetit the ai plays like a hyper active 2 year old just mashing all the build buttons at once to swamp you. I remember when rts stood for real time , and get this crazy notion stratagy. The sound and graphics are nice however. The ablity to sit back and plan a really good victory is all thats missing, i dont feel like i have won much of anything when it seems to revolve around how fast you can click the “build button”

"Pretty Good"
4 stars"

JTF – Joint Task Force Very well constructed game, easy to learn in 30 minutes and brilliant graphics and details. Maps are also well designed and thought out but 2 points did stand out for me which really made it more a chore to replay a mission if you failed than just carrry on. The first is the infantry movements and health dont do well against the tanks – not that they are ment to but just a slight tweeking would probably give better playability. It caused me 4hours extra than id have liked and lots of saving games midway. The second factor was the terrian and the use of Cover & Concealment: Their just seems to be a lack of initiative on the designers when it comes to cover and objects that can be physically used for cover, id like to have seen tank wrecks and vehicle wrecks used better as well as debris from the destructable environement being used in that way aswell. Otherwise its very enjoyable and a good break from the far too many WWII stategy games on the market. Nothing like Infantry LAW or RPG hitting a tank broadside!

Description

Since the end of the Cold War, the world has dramatically changed. The threats our military is asked to confront are vastly different from the past. We must not only prepare for the perils of today, but also develop capabilities that will ensure a robust capacity to deter and defeat future threats. Indeed, the dangers that confront us today were, in many cases, secondary yesterday.

"It is indeed tragic that diplomacy has failed, but there are times when the use of force may be legitimate in the pursuit of peace."

Kofi Annan, U.N. secretary-general, March 24, 1999.
