Conflict: Desert Storm Pivotal Games / Sales Curve Interactive, Take Two 2002

Desert Storm is a tactical shooter, set in Iraq. The game is set during the first gulf war back in the early 1990s and has ideas borrowed from the book Bravo Two Zero and other real missions from the war. One fights either for the Delta Force or SAS and in teams with up to 4 combatants who have different specialisations (i.e.: explosive, sniper's guns or machine guns). As your troops gain more experience, they will gain ranks and upgrade their skills. As their skills get better, the more effective they become at doing their job. A campaign exists of 14 missions which contain for instance, bridge attacks or hostage rescues. You can switch from first person to third person view by the press of a button. You and your team are sent on missions with specific objectives, whether it be to infiltrate a base, destroy a SAM site, or assassinate an opposing general. You can both control your men individually and send them orders. Your men can be ordered to attack, retreat, follow, stay, and do many more things. If the mission requires it, you must drive tanks and jeeps around while your squad mans the guns on the vehicle. There is also the ability to play up to four player co-op with friends, with each person controlling a soldier in your squad. At the end of each mission, if you performed well, your men are awarded medals for their bravery. If you work hard enough, you may even be able to earn the Medal of Honor. Desert Storm is a console conversion and its console origin still is clearly evident. Improvements for the PC version seem to be in short supply and thus Desert Storm is not free of frustration for spoilt PC users. Indeed, it is playable but offers also nothing new or innovative, but only good entertainment with light console atmosphere.
