I cant comment on the single player game, because i have never ever even bothered to play it, i dont like single player games for P.C's thats what consoles are made for however i love my internet and local LAN games.
This game is what we all play on a thursday night after college which is a blast. At first i didnt quite like it since im a huge rainbow six raven shield fan.
But after some much needed training i fell in love with the multiplayer game i cant get enough i even get my gf to play me at it :D
In multiplayer mode you first have to create your gaming profile this includes your name, your character style (miliatry or rebel) then you weapon choice.
Now you see your weapon choice fits in with what sort of character you have chosen if your a sniper you get a choice of sniper rifles (for the record the barret is the best) a secondary weapon like a pistol and then extras like claymores (leave those minds behind you and watch people walk right over them) there are other ones like medic, cqb and gunner with similar options based on their character.
Once you start setting the game up there are a number of levels to choose from, most of them are very large so its a good idea to have about 10 people playing or you might spend the entire game finding the others. There are different game options like deathmatch, team death match, capture the flag and take and hold.
Death match sees every player against every player and the person to kill the set number of kills or kill the most before the time runs out wins.
Team death match is similar to death match but your in teams the computer puts you on a random team but you can change if two or more people want to swap sides.
Capture the flag sees two teams pitched against each other where you must steal the enemy flag which is in there base, this involves team tactics and quick thinking, the team wins with the most captured flags.
Take and hold there are set key points on the map and both teams have to fight for them and then hold them for long as possible the team that holds them for the longest wins!
Now once you have set all these options up you can begin playing the game (i forgot to mention that you can turn of time and set it to any number of minutes, set the kill limit or turn that off, turn of friendly fire so you cant kill your team mates thats a few options there are some more) the game is a first person view (this means you can see your gun and not your character).
The keyboard controls are perfect for a FPS this allows you to move around quickly and easily, change weapons and so on with out finding out that while doing so you was shot!
You have zoom functions on some guns but not all which is a shame, the sniper rifles have auto adjust which means that it sets the elevation for the bullet so you dont have too, this saves alot of time!
The game world looks amazing for such a early game, theres some great cover on levels such as long grass, trees and even buildings, each level as some AI controlled vehicle that you can use like a helicopter, hummvee and even gun placements on the level, this can be fun having two people in helicopters having a fire fight!
The game its self as very few glithces so you shouldnt really find your self blaming the game when you die, not like some other games.
This game is a perfect mutliplayer game a must have for any online people!
I've played many of the Delta Force games and having seen the Black Hawk Down film I was curious about the Delta Force game.
It's certainly better than the previous DF games but it follows the same standalone style and I would have liked something new in this setting, a storyline would have been nice. The problem with this format is that although you feel a sense of accomplishment having completed a mission once you reach the end that's it. There's no story discovery for you to be satisfied with at the end, just mission completion.
Almost all of the time you will be in a team which is very useful, your team won't just sit back and let you do all the work. They're there to help you out and that's exactly what they'll do.
Despite the lack of storyline which is common in DF games, you don't mind that it's missing in BHD whereas in other DF game you do miss it. BHD is so immersive you won't even notice the lack of a storyline until you look back on it.
Gameplay and graphics are more than good, sound is also pretty good. There's some replay value due to multiplayer which could have been improved if you could control vehicles. The lack of storyline I don't actually feel was much of a negative. Overall a very good game.
What can i say, form the moemnt my dad introduced me i have become a bit chubby since i have been playing it 24/7. the reality is unbelieveable so much that it has been found on the pc's of some army personnel and by the look of the success in iraq i would say it has improved the american army. The online capability of the game is great with over 20+ novaworld servers to choose from there is hundreds of custom servers for you and your friend to build and make maps to battle on. I was never one for considering a career in the army but because of dfbhd i might just consider a career change.
Introduction - In our house we enjoy playing a good game on the computors. Having 5 of them, all networked and high spec we are able to have a great gaming experiance and although we don't consider ourselves gaming experts, we do know what we like and what we don't. Delta force-Blackhawk down is one of those games that we do thoroughly enjoy. This military based game, set in assorted towns or hill land, is based on the army V. terrorist scinario. Utilising weapons realistically based upon U.S special forces weapons, gives this game an extra edge lacking in some similar games. Whether playing strategic missions or shooty-up free for alls, the basic scenes are the same, with the facility to incorperate upto 16 players. Technical Information - Needed - 700mhz processor Graphics 32meg 128 meg memory Wants - 1.4 mHz processor 64 meg graphics 256 meg memory Supported graphics cards inlude - Navidia TNT2, Gforce series, ATI radion series. Direct x - Version 8.1 The sytem requirements are unusually far lower than you really need to have a descent game, having just the basics will leave your game jerky and your graphics struggling. Playability - My first impression of having played the game was the fact that it is very engrossing and hours can pass you by as you feel you don't want to put this game down. The soldiers move fluidly and accurately in multi player mode, though in single player mode it can be jerky unless running on an incredibly high spec machine. The selction of weapons is fairly good,and make for good gaming when coupled with the maps and soldier movability. The addition of moving vehicles and helicopters that you can enter use adds another angle to an already good game. Maps - When it comes to playing a multi player death match (if it moves...kill it) there is only a selection of 6 maps ava
ilable. The same can be said for other types of game, with the exception of co-operative games, where sadly no maps are available. The saving grace on this point is the fact that the maps available are complex and very deatailed. The game also comes with a map editor as standard, making it easy to alter or create your own maps. Creating them is relatively simple, combining all settings and structures available in the preformed maps. These created levels are great as they can be joined by third parties easily without problematic downloads. Graphics - If you have a high powered, top end graphics card the graphics are superb, better than the majority of similar games. However for lower spec cards the resolutions and other options have to be turned to the lowest settings just to play a relatively smooth game, thus making the visual effects vey poor. Extra Information - The sound is excellent, especially if using EAX (special gaming sound effects). A 600k+ modem is really desirable for a descent online game, as less than this causes very high pings, resulting in poor and jerky play or disconnection. Mods - Although as of yet, there are no official mods available, a few unnofficial ones can be found. For instance one called "master add on" which gives you tha ability to play i.p to i.p. Something the game in it's basics is lacking in. This is the only way around running through Nova logic (games server) to play online games. Problems - The suggested system requirements needed for the game are way too low. Even running on a 1.4 Athlon DDR, with 1 gig memory and gforce ti 64 meg graphics card, hits points in the game where it struggles to keep up with the game play.This game is very processor hungry,and benifits from top end hardware. Primarily any online gameplay requires you to play through their own server Novalogic, but this can be overcom
e, as prev iously mentioned by a mod.The Novalogic server can be very problamatic as it is often "down" when buisy. Summary - A great game,especially for online gaming,although very resource hungry and not without its annoying glitches.Well worth a play if you like war or shooting games. ~ ~ ~ Thanks for reading ~ ~ ~
