Boots on the ground!
This is the first in a little known but reasonably long-lived series of military shooters that offer a very different experience to Battlefield and Call of Duty. This one isn't the greatest game in the world, as it has aged rather poorly, mainly due to issues with its engine and the controls, so it is far from being a must play. The game thrusts you into the boots of an elite Delta Force soldier and charges you with completing a series of challenging and arduous single player missions which aim to be at least a bit more realistic than most such games. As is usual for such things, you have a range of weapons, from pistols to submachine guns, grenades and mines, while your missions take you to a variety of exotic locales. There is also a multiplayer mode, but good luck with that, so you are pretty much stuck with the single player and this is where the game really does fall down in today's climate. Delta Force was undoubtedly impressive back in the day, but after nearly twenty years this is starting to look a little rough. The visuals aren't bad when you're looking at static screenshots but once it all starts moving, you realize the detail comes at a price, and that is that the game runs so slowly it becomes almost unplayable. The controls too are awkward and very sluggish, making missions a chore rather than truly exciting, although the weapons do handle well and there is a greater sense of realism in certain parts than is the norm. Unfortunately though, at the end of the day this just isn't much fun any more.
