Overall: Delta Force Black Hawk Down is the pc game turned console game about the tragic events in Somalia during the Clinton regime. The game has a story mode and is available for online play. Yet, I have yet to meet anyone playing online have you? It's a shooter, it's a war game, and it's not half bad. However, that means the other half is bad. Listen to my logic.........
Gameplay: The gameplay was as straightforward as it gets. Mission based events that simulate the happenings in Somalia. It turns out the game does a good job of depicting the feeling of war and being ambushed from anywhere and by anyone. I guess for me I felt as though I wasn't vested in the game at all. I had no attachment to a character. It was just shoot these guys Unknown soldier and if you die we'll get another to shoot them who looks just like you. I guess that what I was missing. In war it seems kinda personal that you're fighting for your life and killing people in the process. I wanted to feel some of that. I want to tell you about the online play but for the brief time that I played the game I didn't meet up with anyone. So you guys tell me.......
Graphics: This game is noticeably old. It is easy to tell that maybe back in the day it was hot stuff graphically but nowadays it's just blah! Everything looked lifeless, colorless, dusty if you will. Maybe that's how it was in Somalia I don't know but I didn't like it.
Sound: Now the game does well here. The sounds of the weaponry are remarkable. I worked a turret and man it was so loud it was frightening. I could just imagine hearing that racket and trying to run from the inevitable bullets headed straight for your hindparts! Sound check, 1,2,1,2 good.
Suggestions: None really as I'm sure they will not do this again. However, if they try to bring back a game from back in the day, touch it up a little bit more and add some character and you'll have a hit. The Ugly truth: rent for a break for Halo2, and return it on time.

Overall: Lead your team through missions similiar to the encountered by US Special Forces in Somalia. Gun your way through 16 single player missions, Co-op modes and Xbox live modes.
Gameplay: As far as using the controls, this game is good. Easy to use and configuration is well planned out. Single player mode is where this game shines. Although at times it seems targets die too easy,even from leg shots, maps are wide open and you never know who is around the next corner or sniping from a building. I dont know if its me, but I cant quite but my finger on it, but all I can say is that this game is missing something. Its good, but I thought it would be better. Xbox Live is a joke, who thought up how to spawn? Dropped in the same spawn point 5 times and dying from campers is a joke. Auto-spawning, lag and inaccurate shooting make this game online very weak. If I had to say what its like, its a cross between Halo 2 and Counter Strike. For all the delay time fixing, should have scraped the online and rebuilt it.
Graphics: I expected more in this dept. Graphics seems kinda first gen gameish. By now, I expected clear visuals with smooth flow and I get cropped grahics and shooty flow. Another area that could have been worked on.
Sound: Sounds are very good, one area this game is actually good. The music along with the background sounds blend well. Makes you feel the pressure of the situations.
Suggestions: If you have any thought of making another game, you really need to put more effort into it. Look, for all I am dumping on this game, the single player mode saves it. Its not the best I have seem, but surely not the worst. Im just frustrated with all the delays and anticipation and I get something that IMO wasnt very well thought out, online that is. Completely retool your online play, delay with loading, what a joke. Spawning, joke. Maps seems too small for 10 people, never mind 50 like you claim. Cant get into vehicle and use them, come on! Concept of the game is great, if you plan on a second for X360, you really need to rework graphic, online play.
