| Does not effectively capture the intensity of the missions in Somalia
THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE PLAYSTATION 2 VERSION OF THE GAME.

As you probably already know, Delta Force: Black Hawk Down, is a first-person shooter based on the true events of American soldiers in Somalia.

The film captured all the intensity and the feelings of the soldiers. However, the game is supposed to simulate what it was like to be a soldier fighting in Somalia during that time. It does not simulate this at all. All the game manages to do is put you in the desert with a gun, alongside a team of soldiers, and sends you out to kill all the Somali militia before advancing to your next objective. There is no emotion from any of the voice actors, missions are extremely short, and it's extremely easy. Night missions do not require stealth at all, although the game advises that you use stealth, the enemy AI is always popping out of somewhere, allowing for easy kills, and your own team is constantly getting in your way, and will not offer medical support, or give you any extra ammo if fighting. You cannot drive vehicles, you can only carry one anti-tank rocket, there are no helicopters you can pilot...the only way you can ride a vehicle is by mounting a Humvee's 50 cal. Your team eventually tells you to get off and proceed by foot. Graphics aren't really anything you'd want to write home about either.

Although this game is really dull, it does have a few promising points. One of them would be the awesome multiplayer play. 2-4 player versus mode is extremely fun, and offer a wide selection of maps to play on. The maps feature armories, so that you can change your weapons without having to respawn first. The online is OK, unfortunately lacking PunkBuster, which would eradicate anyone who tried to cheat, but enjoyable nonetheless. Multiplayer Co-op isn't too bad either, although like single player, missions are extremely short, no driving vehicles, and no effort needed.

This game may appeal to you if you are a hardcore fan of the military, and military-associated games, looking for large online games (DF:BHD can support up to 32 players), or want to buy a gag gift for your gamer friend. Other than that, save your money for something else. I would recommend Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, it has everything DF:BHD doesn't, and it's cheaper too! Do not make my mistake! Rent this game if you really feel you need to play it!

4/10
