The maps are huge and while the trademark outdoor focus remains, there has been an obvious move towards getting up-close and personal with the enemy while they are inside buildings. There are some glitches - sometimes you can waste ammo shooting at a far-away soldier before realising He's actually behind building's wall - but overall this is almost perfect. Can't wait to go multiplayer with this beauty! Lock and load, fire in the hole!

Overall, Delta Force: Land Warrior is an excellent edition to any fan of the genre. Although single player is weak, multiplayer is extraordinary and will keep players addicted for many hours.

Delta Force 3 macht einfach nur Spaß. Der Schwerpunkt liegt ganz klar auf der Action, nicht im taktischen Bereich. Alle Fans von Actionspielen und Shootern können ohne Bedenken zugreifen. Strategiebewusste Spieler sollten lieber mal die Demo vorher antesten. Die Grafik ist, bis auf ein paar Mängel, top. Leider muss der Spieler auf deutsche Sprachausgabe und Texte verzichten.

Ik raad iedereen aan om Delta Force Land Warrior alleen te kopen als je beschikt over een snelle internetverbinding want alleen online komt deze game tot zijn recht.

Game Over Online
Despite all the weaponry, I found myself wanting for more Delta Force staples, like some sort of flash-bang stun grenades, lifesavers in hostage situations, and smoke grenades to give cover when crossing wide-open spaces. Still Land Warrior is a fun, if very easy, single player game that can be played in tasty bite-sized missions as a break. But multiplayer games are where this game excels, working great with the game's inherently lethal nature and support for so many people. It's intense, it's chaotic, and it's something every shooter fan with a decent Internet connection should try. Lock and load, boys and girls, it's time to be a hero.

It was recently announced that Land Warrior will be used by the U.S. Military Academy to train soldiers in tactical combat and from playing the game, I can see why. NovaLogic has successfully combined the military universe and good 'ol fun for the third time in a row! If you enjoy the tactical genre or have an urge to get your feet wet, you'll find Land Warrior is just what you're looking for.

Delta Force bleibt Delta Force. Die Optik ist mager, die Gegner-KI knapp ausreichend. Trotzdem bringt Land Warrior wieder jede Menge Spaß: Die riesigen Einsatzgebiete sind ein Paradies für Sniper-Freunde; die actionreichen Missionen motivieren lange. Kurzum: keine Innovationsbombe wie Project IGI, sondern ein ausgewogener, unterhaltsamer 3D-Shooter mit Soldaten-Hintergrund.

Die Action-Kur hat der Delta-Force-Reihe gut getan. Es macht richtig Spaß, mit den Spezialisten in den Kampf zu ziehen. Mein Liebling ist der Scharfschütze, auch wenn er in Gebäuden oft den Kürzeren zieht. Schade, dass eben diese Behausungen so langweilig aussehen. Auch die KI der Gegner hat ihre Tücken. Manche Terroristen gehen in Feuergefechten nicht in Deckung und sind so ein leichtes Ziel. Seine größten Trümpfe spielt Land Warrior aber sowieso im Internet aus, wo die Jagd nach Auszeichnungen und Rängen ordentlich motiviert.

Beim Spiele von Land Warrior fühlt man sich wohl so wie ein altes Ehepaar: Alle Stärken und Schwächen sind lange bekannt, als Überraschung werden die Kartoffeln vielleicht mal gedünstet statt gekocht. Das Missionsdesign, das eigentliche Spielen - alles wie gehabt. Dank der Kombination von Voxelgrafik mit Beschleunigerkarten entfällt endlich der lästige Pixel-Look, das Zwischenspeichern während der Einsätze mindert den Frustlevel. Und doch zieht es mich immer wieder in den Bann: Nur noch eine Mission, dann gebe ich endlich den Artikel ab, versprochen. Was würde wohl passieren, wenn ich jetzt die Hügelkette besser ausnutze? Da stört die mittelprächtige Optik kaum, schon eher die Tatsache, dass 30 Einsätze fürs Genre zwar immer noch viel sind, aber deutlich weniger als bei den Vorgängern.

GamePro (US)
Overall, Delta Force: Land Warrior makes some definite strides in the right direction. The gameplay and graphics are much better than the last version of the game, and the tweaks to the gameplay are notable. If you're in the mood to add some strategy to your action gaming experience, Delta Force: Land Warrior is a good investment, especially at the $27.99 price tag.

GameGenie
Make no mistake about it; Delta Force Land Warrior is a multiplayer game. With shoddy AI, the single player element seems like an afterthought slapped on by NovaLogic so the third Delta Force installment wouldn't be pegged as an Unreal Tournament/Quake 3 wannabe. However, if you are a strategic multiplayer aficionado, Delta Force Land Warrior should not be missed. But for the rest of us, look elsewhere for an attractive strategic single player FPS.

Encore une fois, la série des Delta Force parvient à nous captiver grâce à des missions solo intéressantes mais surtout à un très bon mode multi-joueurs dont on ne se lasse pas. Allez j'y retourne !

Land Warrior bjuder på många nyheter, men de flesta av dem skulle ha funnits med i föregångarna. Tack vare den inte fullt så intelligenta AI:n blir detta ett spel som passar bäst över nätverk, men detta är inte alltid en nackdel. Om du är ute efter snabb och tanklös action är detta en bra investering. Är det dags för en LAN-träff eller har du tillgång till bredband? Då är detta spelet du har väntat på. Däremot kan det bli en besvikelse om du letar efter nästa generations soldatspel.

Offenbar hat Novalogic die ganze Entwicklungszeit in die aufpolierte Grafikengine gesteckt. Denn die schon in Teil 1 und 2 miese KI ist keinen Deut besser geworden. Was mich einzig motiviert hat, die Kampagne weiterzuspielen, waren die einfallsreichen, spannend designten Missionen. Dafür kann ich Land Warrior im Mehrspielermodus allen ans Herz legen, die eine Alternative zu Counter-Strike suchen.

If you really loved the first two Delta Force games (although you're suspect if you liked number two), and you just want the vastly improved multiplayer, you'll surely enjoy NovaLogic's latest outing. But if you were hoping that this incarnation would solve all of the past issues, you'll be a bit disappointed even with the new improved 3D accelerated engine.

GameSpot
Delta Force: Land Warrior is a compromise between the complexities of tactical shooters like Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear and the more basic designs of traditional shooters. Land Warrior is easy to learn, but there's enough subtlety and diversity to the weapons to maintain your interest. In fact, the huge arsenal is half the fun, the other half being long-distance engagements and sniping. The vivid settings of the single-player missions are immersive, though the missions generally aren't challenging enough. Multiplayer is frantic and fun, though not as sophisticated as it could be. If you want subtlety and complexity, Delta Force probably isn't for you, but if you want to mow down terrorists using the latest firearms in a variety of colorful settings, then this is your game.

Land Warrior doesn’t measure up to the accurate simulation of Rainbow Six nor is it the free-for-all shooting gallery you find in Quake III. Rather, it falls somewhere in the middle of the two. With its varied array of weapons and the huge landscapes to move around in there’s a little something for fans of either type of game. The single-player missions are fairly well done, although they aren't challenging enough in most cases. The multiplayer is frantic and fun, with faster play than true Special Forces simulators, but more realism than a straight frag-fest game. Even with its less than intelligent AI, the game offers more than enough high powered fun -- especially for those of us who favor playing the sniper. Watch for me on the multiplayer servers, I’ll have you my crosshairs.

Delta Force: Land Warrior laat te veel steken vallen om van een waardige opvolger te kunnen spreken.

Как ни крути, получается танк. Если обработать напильником, может выйти самолет. Но до этого еще миллионы лет эволюции.

Titles in the Delta Force series normally stand out for one reason or another. Delta Force: Land Warrior is no exception: This newest entry in the series continues the tradition of mild innovation beset by graphical problems. It also continues the more distinguished tradition of having some of the most entertaining tactical multiplayer around. While it may not have the nail-biting incremental movement of Rainbow Six or Spec Ops, the vast outdoor environments with rolling hills and ultra-varied terrain is a nice change of pace from the close quarters urban warfare prevalent in other tactical combat offerings. Though the rendering jitters can get annoying, the improvements to the overall visuals combined with the wide explorative possibilities make Delta Force: Land Warrior a solid game for anyone who enjoys modern tactical warfare on the PC.

All Game Guide
Multiplayer games can provide some strategy and team play that's lacking in the single player missions but, overall, Delta Force: Land Warrior is an arcade-style shooter with great graphics. If you like your games with less thought and more explosions, you'll have fun with Land Warrior. Those expecting another Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six will want to look elsewhere.

Gamekult
Quel dommage, vraiment ! Delta Force : Land Warrior s'avère excellent en multijoueurs, avec ses longues et intenses parties de snipe entre autres (arsenal aussi réaliste que diversifié), sur de vastes champs de batailles. De plus, avec l'éviction du voxel, la fluidité est enfin au rendez-vous de ce troisième volet du combat tactique/Doom-like. Par contre, Land Warrior est un désastre en mode solo au regard de son potentiel. L'IA quasi-inexistante des adversaires transforme les missions en simples balades/shoot 3D, gâchant le gameplay et, du même coup, une bonne partie du jeu. Bref, la suite de Novalogic s'apparente à une déception (trois épisodes plus tard, peu d'évolutions) et manque une fois de plus la place de référence à la quelle elle aurait pu prétendre...

DFLW single player mode sucks that much that it's pointless playing it on your own just like DFII. DFLW is something you would buy only if: a) You have less than 15 years (not even then, it's got too much violence), b) You want to prove it's not hard to be Rambo c) You want to play it in multiplayer mode. Well, I guess C would be the right answer. Here, in the offices, we spent only about 3-4 hours slaughtering each other, because we got totally demoralized by the pathetic single-player mode first (Yeah, we're Gooseman's bitches all right! Hey, at least we're able to admit it! -- Ed). NovaLogic should have decided to publish LW as a multiplayer-only game, and erase all the single player missions, or turn them into some sort of an over-elaborate tutorial... Delta Force might hide some potential if only the developers stopped faintly upgrading a pathetic basis...

LAND WARRIOR is a slight improvement over its predecessors, but still falls short. Given the improved stability, new graphics engine, multiplayer features, and interface tweaks, it should have been better. Unless you’ve enjoyed DELTA FORCE on Novaworld, avoid this game like the draft.
