Description

In Combat: Task Force 121, you are a member of the elite Task Force 121, the US military force responsible for the capture of Saddam Hussein. You are tasked with taking out a group of Marxist rebels intent on destabilizing the unnamed region. The single player game takes takes you through an oil rig, dense jungles, a refinery, shanty towns and an exotic island.

This FPS is very much a multiplayer oriented affair. The game supports up to 16 players over Xbox Live, system link and Internet (PC). There are 10 weapons to use, 10 multiplayer maps to explore and seven modes of play: deathmatch, team deathmatch, capture the flag, king of the hill, team king of the hill, last man standing, team last man standing and VIP escort. There is also an offline training mode that lets you compete in deathmatch against bots. The straightforward control scheme, well balanced weapons and interesting maps make for some quick, dirty and fun multiplayer action.

There are even much better budget titles in the genre than this pathetically bland run-n-gun shooter. Xbox Spartan_234 (422)
