Summary

A reaonsable concept, marred by a terrible game engine and pointless gameplay.

The Good

I really don't like Delta Froce. Quite frankly, I find it hard to understand why anyone would like this game; other than the relatively new concept at the time, it hasn't got anything good in it. Play Rainbow Six instead.

The Bad

The game engine is a DISASTER. I don't understand why they stuck with a voxel engine when 3D hardware was already available, and even years before there was Quake, with its terrific 3D engine. This engine really ruins what might have been a great game, but currently the game is just this: terrible. It is slow, and I mean SLOW (I'm talking about around 5 frames per second at the lowest resolution it would allow (640x480) on my trusty Pentium 166 with Voodoo 2) and looks disgusting (the entire game has a sickening green hue).

As a result, the controls are a disaster, and gameplay is the same. This game is literally unplayable.

The Bottom Line

Crap. A basically good idea which was poorly executed, to say the least.
