      I took it back the next day, what else do you need to know?

      To call this game dated now is no surprise, but it might hold more weight if I announce that when I bought it a few months after its release, I was pretty disgusted at the poor graphics and stiff gameplay, and returned it to HMV for a full refund the next day. While I enjoyed the first Delta Force game, this is a poor sequel that can't capture the same grittiness and ends up being more frustrating, and, of course, horrendously ugly to look at.

      The need for realism has grown even further in this sequel to the point where it generates a lot of anger. You can be killed by an out of sight enemy with one shot if the AI randomly wants to kill you just as you're about to complete the mission, and the game's falling damage is RIDICULOUS; you can die after falling maybe two stories...

      This is just a game that fails to satisfy at every turn; the campaign is a fun idea, but the gameplay is poorly executed, and while I'm usually no stickler for graphics, the visuals here are absolutely appalling (and were for the time, also). I'll admit that the gun sound effects are quite good, but what does that work for when the rest of the package is so poor?

      The quest for realism has sadly meant that this game has become too real for comfort or entertainment, and to be honest, do I really want a gun that works underwater? I just want a diverting shoot em up that isn't too challenging and quite fun, but this is infuriatingly difficult and designed with all of the enthusiasm of a slug.

      Generally I let FPS games slide if they're fun enough, but this is without a doubt one of the worst games I've played.

      good game for a good laugh

      Delta Force 2 is a classic game similar to Call Of Duty. Of course the fact that it is 10 years older at least than Call Of Duty means that the array of weapons, items and graphics are not as good as you usual expect. But hey, graphics aren't everything you know.

      The game involves a number of different missions that you can complete in single player mode. You have a range of weapons including a sniper rifle through which you can take down targets at hundreds of feet. The great thing about this game is the reality of your health. If you get shot with a sniper rifle in the head your going to die instantly. It does add an extra dimension to the game not being able to run around shooting your face off and taking 100 bullets before you drop.

      In each level you must complete different missions and levels are located in deserts, forests, jungles etc.

      The best mode to play is definately online multiplayer mode or through a LAN. Although the levels are quite huge for such a game the skill involved in fighting an opposing team is not to run guns blazing, you really have to think about what it is your going to do first.

      Good game for a good laugh.

      OLD GAME BUT STILL KICKING :)

      Delta Force2
      This game offers single player missions, ranging from deserts to artic conditions, good voice over telling you where the enemy are located and clear mission goals. Then you have the multi-player games which include deathmatch,team deathmatch,cooperative etc. also there are many squads that have formed from players within the game who have matches against other squads, create there squad websites/record stats. another FPS but considering how old this game is its still within my top 10,
      There is a good choice of weapons, including implaced weapons, grenades, rocket launchers etc
      So to sum this game up- great shoot em up, graphics need a tweek, great solo missions, brilliant real time multi-play, friendly family of players.
      A GOOD IDEA TO CHECK OUT OTHER NOVA GAMES YOU WONT BE DISSAPOINTED :)

        Disadvantages

        As a member of an elite US Special Forces unit, youre asked to enter close-quarter situations and deal surreptitiously with low-down hostage-takers and terrorists. Often airlifted in, sometimes under the cover of darkness and with just a handful of ground-hugging compatriots, you're usually too sly for the bad guys to even know you're there. Until you've fired your first weapon, that is, or lifted your head too high above whatever ditch, gully, or long tuft of grass you happen to be hiding in. And in this game, one mistake means a trip home in a body bag. Despite its emphasis on stealth, DF2 offers a huge arsenal of weapons, including satchel charges, machine guns, sniper rifles, various long and short-range explosives, and calls for artillery strikes. New for this iteration are the Heckler & Koch silenced .45 caliber SOCOM pistol, the "Master Key" M4 carbine/12-gauge shotgun combo, and various underwater revolvers and rifles. (How cool is that?) Even more impressive is the effect of real-world conditions on said weapons. Wind and gravity influences trajectories, powerful rifles penetrate tents and thin wooden walls, and large explosions kill anyone in close proximity. Not quite so realistic, however, is DF2's fondness for instant mortality. In short, you can kill a man in this game by shooting him in the elbow, and that just ain't right. DF2's artificial intelligence is not quite what I had hoped. To be fair, the game goes farther than most first-person shooters in this regard and enemy soldiers usually react to your presence by raising their rifle, taking cover and honing in on your blown cover like squirrels on a chestnut. But all too often they'll get just plain wacky. Mow down one guy and watch his partner refuse to move a muscle. Witness the folly of your comrade as he becomes snagged between two trees, continually running to nowhere. Hell, I had one dude bounce around on top of my prone f
        igure for a full thirty seconds before I shot him for being such an idiot. As I said, this is the exception rather than the rule, but such flagrant stupidity is enough to warrant strong criticism. If you use a 3dfx card, however, get set for a disappointment. Delta Force 2s volume pixel-based voxel engine won't take advantage of hardware acceleration of cards with a 16-bit Z-buffer, instead defaulting to software rendering. The upside to the Voxel engine is that the DF2 designers were able to render enormous environments with clarity to 1,000 meters. And what environments! The game is filled with hills and dales and buildings of every shape and size, a huge variety of foliage and water elements and more mobile ground and airborne vehicles than ever. Delta Force 2, while not all it should have been, remains an intriguing slice of tactical action that should please most fans of the genre.

        Delta Force is a first person shooter in which you are part of the ‘Delta Force’ Team to crack down on global terrorism, but this game is not like most games of the same type- there has been an effort to make it realistic, for instance when you get shot your dead, or second shot if you have a flack jacket on. There are lots of missions in places found the world, split into two campaigns. The graphics of the game are quite good but the max resolution is 800x600, which is not super for powerful computers, but it means it never jerks or lags. The game play is excellent on this game; there is a realistic feel about the whole doing everything from being stealthy through wetland marshes, to assaulting an artic base all great! The game offers a good range of weaponry including guns, grenades, rocket launchers, machine guns and sniper rifles, in the game you can only have four slots to carry weapons and equipment, but in multiplayer there are bunkers where you can change your kit. Multi-player Delta Force has to be one of the best net gaming set-ups around, all you have to do to play online with you game is to download the upgrade pack (about 45 mins – but its worth it!) and then you can just go to the net game option in the main menu of the game, it loads and you get a list of servers. All you have to do then is choose a game type, double click and it loads- then there you go, you’re in an online game! Start shooting! well to some up this game is definitely worth at the very least a look because if you like shooting games then this is a brilliant one to go for.

            This is 1 of 3 Delta Force’s to be made yet . I think this is the best 1 made out of all 3 Delta Force The story line to all 3 is the same, You’re a member of the US Army’s best – kept secret the elite Special Operations know as Delta force – This group is Specially trained to battle terrorism throughout the world. You have now been called into action can you handle the job. In October 1977, the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment- DELTA was secretly formed to deal with the growing threat of the world terrorism. T fort Bragg, elite Delta Force operatives, recruited mainly form the 82nd Airborne, Special Forces Green Berets and US Army Rangers, rigorously train in hostages, specialised reconnaissance and other counter terrorism techniques. Highly skilled in CQB (close quarter battle), armed with the best equipment, and able to infiltrate as civilians, Delta Force is ready to deal with the most dangerous world threats . You can conquer 40 levels on a 1person scenario or if you don’t fancy taking on the hard missions try battling the terrorists on quick missions. You Battle in all kinds of weather day, night, raining, snowing and foggy. In every mission there is objectives to do E.g. Eliminate all Hostile Forces at objective Bravo. To get to some objectives you need to go via land, sea, or air – use tall grass, water and rolling terrain to move undetected. Also their has been some new things brought on to the game guns, equipment, and fixed machine guns / grenade launchers. And also you can create your own level for 1 person or multiplier Try battling other people on online- games and try out for peoples clans on the game or even make your own clans. There is all kinds of games team/death match, team flag ball, capture the flag, king/ team of the hill, attack and defend, search and destroy and co-operative. There are 7 primary wepons on the game these are 1. m4 Carbins/shotgun 2. m249 saw - this is a good gun but some internet games dont allow them 3.Barret .50 Sniper Rifle 4.HK MP5 SD3 5.M40 Sniper Rifle 6.Under Water assault rifle 7.M4 carbine/Grenade These are the 3 secondry wepons 1.SOCOM .45 supperssed 2.SOCOM .45 3.HK P11 under water pistol you always have 1 primary wepon and 1 secondry There are also some other items that could come in handy while you are in a game 1.Law - Rocket takes out helecoperts and cars 2.Extra Ammo 3.Video camera 4.Satchel charges 5.Claymoor 6.LAr v rebreather 7.Kevlar vest 8.Ghillie suit

              This is an excellent real-time first person stealth shooter. it's a long title, but it deserves it! You take control of a crack squad of highly trained SAS officers. Before you undertake your missions, you must choose who will be used. You can split up to 8 characters into up to four teams. Chose from explosives, sniping, lock picking etc. specialists. Name a captain for each team, who will be responsible for others. Chose the kit that your men will have, from m-16's to pistols, grenades to flashbangs. Chose a uniform suitable for the job ie. camo, street or urban, and the amount of body armour they will have. Then move onto the planning. Perhaps the most important part of the game, create waypoints for you and the computer teams, and plan what will be done and when. Indicate the attack style in each area and tell them where to wait for orders. Now you are ready to go in! The AI is extremely good, with terrorists waiting behind doors, and snipers hiding in bell towers! Isuue orders for when to move on, and take out the bad guys, rescuing the hostages along the way. There are 12 levels, and different difficulties, ranging from fairly challenging to near impossible! Missions too tough? Grab a friend and play the co-operative setting, helping each other out in the single player missions. The playability and addictiveness of this game are amazingly high. Each mission needs top planning and a skilled player. It will have you hooked straight away, and will take ages to complete. The graphics are excellent the sound effects are realistic,. The background music is annoying though. Overall this is a great game, though I would say the PC version is better. Easily an 8/10!

              Delta Force two is a brilliant game for you people out there who have always thought them selves as a bit of a hot shot with the old m16 machine gun... The game is a first person shooter where you are a member of the Delta Force team to crack down on global terrorism and there are two campaigns around the world with a large range of missions in a lot of different sceneries. There is a story line to both the campaigns to do with groups of terrorists and one is about stolen viruses, which has the potential to kill millions. You are equipped with a good array of weapons and equipment in the game to deal with your situations and enemies. The multiplayer part of Delta Force two has to be one of the best set ups on the web; all you have to is download the upgrade and then just go to multiplayer in the menu and it automatically connects and you get a list of games you can join, that simple!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Delta Force 2 lets you play out all your military fantasies. In this First Person Shooter-type game you are a member of the elite Delta Force. Your mission is to take down the bad guys no matter what. No negotiations, no limits on lethal force, no pussy footing around. When a target appears, you take it down using every means available to you. The missions within the game are fairly straightforward and boil down to the essential order: Kill! The methods by which you do this are realistic and devastating. From the puny .45 to the awesome .50 cal sniper rifle, your personal weapons are fearsome and realistic. You can take the top of someone's head off with the .50 at 1000 meters. As for some of the more non-personal weapons, you've got grenades, LAW's, demolition packs, claymore mines, and a Laser designator for calling down precision-guided munitions on hard targets. All told, the weapons lend themselves to a rich environment that doesn't distract from gameplay at all. The campaign missions are fun to play if a bit farfetched at times. The missions themselves are rather ingeniously designed. You are a part of a team of commandos, but instead of attempting to code in a detailed AI or command interface for you to control your teammates, your character is given the 'point' position and your fellows are tasked to give you cover and provide a diversion to mask your activities. You hit waypoints that correspond to your mission orders and that will trigger their actions. Some people will cry foul, but it is perfect military logic. This is where my major complaint of the game comes in, though. You can choose your personal weapons and equipment, but your teammates stuff is hardcoded into the script and even worse, this prevents you from seeing what tools of mayhem they are carrying. The other complaint that I have is that the enemy AI is pretty weak. There were times that I would kill one guy on peripheral guard duty and the ent
              ire base would wake up and be on alert for me, but other times I could shoot a guy standing next to 3 others and they wouldn't react when their buddy went down in a spray of blood. The biggest stretch of unreality that is pervasive during the game is that you can see every enemy on the mini-map at all times, as long as one of your team can see them. On the other hand, in what I hope will become standard for all such games, DF2 comes with a headset/microphone combination to facilitate two-way communication with other players during multi-player games accessible through NovaLogic's web site. This works surprisingly well, and allows you to quickly coordinate actions with your teammates.

                I bought delta force 2 in January 2001, and it only cost me £12.99, but you may have to pay £19.99 for it now though. I believe this is excellent value for an amazing game. You are a member of the U.S Army's best kept secret: the elite special operations unit known as Delta Force. This unit has been formed to battle terrorism throughout the world. You are called into action, to see if you can handle the job! Delta Force includes completing lots of different missions, all with different objectives. You have to execute night and day operations, which means making your way through fog rain snow, and any other weather you can think of. There are quick missions which are pretty easy to complete, and the campaigns, which are harder and take longer. In the many different missions and campaigns, you have to approach your objective, which you have to do through means via land, sea or air. In the missions, you have to either reach somewhere, while killing many of your enemies men, or blow up rocket launchers etc. You have to be careful of your enemy soldiers as they hide in tall grass etc. The enemies men are not very good on the easy option, so you will find it very easy to kill them. To make it easier for yourself, you should hide in the tall grass, water, and roll over the terrain to sneak up on them and to catch them by surprise. You are given an array of weapons which you need to use to terrorise the terrorists. You can shoot everybody with a machine gun, blow buildings up with a grenade launcher, or even request an air attack. The weapons are excellent, and so is the equipment you are given. This equipment includes night vision goggles etc. If you become an expert, you can change the level of hardness. Also, if you think you can handle it, you can switch your team mates off, so you are given no help in the campaigns. There is a screen at the beginning where you can choose your soldier. You can change his he
                adwear etc. Also, it keeps your record of campaigns completed and also how many men you have killed on multiplayer, and how many people you have killed. Now onto the multiplayer. This is on of the best options on the game. You can play over the internet on Novaworld, and it is excellent. You can choose to go in a game which has been set up, or you can make a game yourself. The games can hold up to 50 players, but if you make a game, you can set up the maximum amount of players. During multiplayer, the winner can either be the person who reaches a certain score first, or the person with the best score after a time limit. Some people are experts at this, so it is very hard to win. I definitely recommend Delta Force 2, especially if you can get it for £12.99 like I did from Virgin Megastores. You will probably have to pay £19.99 for it though. It is very long, and very hard in some places. There are 40 missions to complete, so it will keep you entertained for hours. The graphics are quite good, and you use the first person view. You have to use the arrow buttons on the keyboard to move your soldier, the mouse to move your gun, and left button on the mouse to shoot. These are the default controls. I definitely recommend this game, it is excellent. If you think that it is too old for you, then you can always buy the newer version out. This is Delta Force Land Warrior. This is also an excellent game. Happy Gaming!!!

You are a member of the U.S Army's best kept secret: the elite special operations unit known as Delta Force. This unit has been formed to battle terrorism throughout the world. You are called into action, to see if you can handle the job! Delta Force includes completing lots of different missions, all with different objetives. You have to execute night and day operations, which means making your way through fog rain snow, and any other weather you can think of. There are quick missions which are pretty easy to complete, and the campaigns, which are harder and take longer. In the many different missions and campaigns, you have to approach your objective, which you have to do through means via land, sea or air. In the missions, you have to either reach somewhere, while killing many of your enemies men, or blow up rocket launchers etc. You have to be careful of your enemy soldiers as they hide in tall grass etc. The enemies men are not very good on the easy option, so you will find it very easy to kill them. To make it easier for yourself, you should hide in the tall grass, water, and roll over the terrain to sneak up on them and to catch them by surprise. You are given an aray of weapons which you need to use to terrorise the terrorists. You can shoot everybody with a machine gun, blow buildings up with a grenade launcher, or even request an air attack. The weapons are excellent, and so is the equipment you are given. This equipment includes night vision goggles etc. If you become an expert, you can change the level of hardness. Also, if you think you can handle it, you can switch your team mates off, so you are given no help in the campaigns. There is a screen at the beginning where you can choose your soldier. You can change his headwear
                etc. Also, it keeps your record of campaigns completed and also how many men you have killed on multiplayer, and how many people you have killed. Now onto the multiplayer. This is on of the best options on the game. You can play over the internet on Novaworld, and it is excellent. You can choose to go in a game which has been set up, or you can make a game yourself. The games can hold up to 50 players, but if you make a game, you can set up the maximum amount of players. During multiplayer, the winner can either be the person who reaches a certain score first, or the person with the best score after a time limit. Some people are experts at this, so it is very hard to win. I definitely recommend Delta Force 2, especially if you can get it for £12.99 like i did from Virgin Megastores. You will probably have to pay £19.99 for it though. It is very long, and very hard in some places. There are 40 missions to complete, so it will keep you entertained for hours. The graphics are quite good, and you use the first preson view. You have to use the arrow buttons on the keyboard to move your soldier, the mouse to move your gun, and left button on the mouse to shoot. These are the default controls. I definitely recommend this game, it is excellent. If you think that it is too old for you, then you can always buy the newer version out. This is Delta Force Land Warrior. This is also an excellent game. Happy Gaming!!!
