Apesar desse defeito, a ação é interessante para jogadores de todos os gostos, oferecendo uma experiência única no entretenimento eletrônico. Variedade e um elemento de competição são os dois grandes culpados que impedem "Full Spectrum Warrior" de se tornar um clássico. Mas encontrando abrigo entre dois gêneros que normalmente batalham pela preferência exclusiva de seus fãs, ele merece uma atenção especial.

If you didn't get to play it on Xbox, then it's easy to recommend this on the PC. The interface works a whole lot better on the PC, and if your machine is up to running it all maxed out, then it will look that much cleaner. All this aside, however, the game itself is intense and utterly engrossing. Unlike many games of this theme, it also has a very distinct sense of personality, which carries it forward when the deliberate nature of its pacing makes it start to feel a little onerous.

Meine Erwartungen der PC-Version von Full Spectrum Warrior wurden voll erfüllt. Der Coop-Modus im LAN oder über das Internet macht dabei besonderen Spaß! Die zwei Zusatzmissionen in der PC-Version sind dabei auch nicht zu erwarten. Ansonsten haben die Entwickler ihre Hausaufgaben gemacht und nicht nur eine schludrige Konsolenumsetzung zusammengeabstelt. Wer also etwas für militärische Strategiespiele übrig hat kann mit FSW nicht viel falsch machen.

I really did like Full Spectrum Warrior for its presentation and polish. It presents squad-based tactical combat in a way that's pretty fresh and interesting. The interface is easy to learn and mostly a cinch to use. Visually the game is near the top of the heap and the personality of each of the soldiers, while not constant, is a reminder that people actually do these kinds of things on a daily basis. The only real problem is that the game lets you have everything immediately and never really steps up the strategy and tactics into new and interesting territory. Creativity and style aren't necessarily an option. Basic puzzle solving is really all you'll need to get through almost every situation that you come across in the game. It's not necessarily bad, it just might not be what some of the strategy veterans used to more complex games on the PC are expecting. However, I still think anybody that picks Full Spectrum Warrior up at the store will have a great time while it lasts.

Looking back at my experience with FSW, I'm inclined to believe that this is probably one of the best tactical military shooters I've played. It's authentic, gritty and highly original in the way it was executed. And it requires you to use your brains for a change. I don't know what was wrong with this one on the Xbox, but there's not a lot of wrong with it on the PC. Aside from the wacky physics and some AI glitches, there are very little (if any) negative things that I could say about Full Spectrum Warrior. After you're done with the fairly lengthy single-player campaign, there's always the co-op and multiplayer, so there's plenty of replay value to be had too. I wholeheartedly recommend Full Spectrum Warrior to every single military shooter fan out there.

Wenn ich mit meine beiden „Fireteams“ durch Stadtschluchten ziehe, muss ich mir erst mal abgewöhnen, in Richtung Shooter zu denken. Denn mit einem Actiongeballer hat Full Spectrum Warrior nichts zu tun. Ich muss vor allem strategisch agieren, wenn ich die Missionen heil überstehen will. Wer die Kurve kriegt, bekommt eine erstklassige Militärsimulation geboten, die dank exzellenter Steuerung nicht in Arbeit ausartet. Mein Geheimtipp für alle, die mal anderes wollen als Taktik-Shooter.

Full Spectrum Warrior ist vielleicht nicht politisch korrekt, aber trotzdem saugut. Mir persönlich gehen die Amis eigentlich mit ihrem Machtgehabe auf den Sack und eine eigene Kultur haben die ja auch nicht. Dass mich dann gerade dieses Spiel bis zum Schluss fesselte, spricht für die hohe Qualität. Fürs nächste Mal wünsche ich mir eine längere Spieldauer und die Möglichkeit, auch Panzer und andere Fahrzeuge zu kommandieren. Es ist offiziell noch kein zweiter Teil angekündigt? Dann sollten die THQ-Typen dies gefälligst flott nachholen.

Wussten Sie, dass die US Army eine spezielle Version von Full Spectrum Warrior zum Training ihrer Soldaten einsetzt? Aber keine Sorge, auch wenn Sie nicht gedient haben, könnte Ihnen das neueste Werk der Pandemic Studios gefallen. Zur Freude aller Zivis werden nämlich weder militärisches Fachwissen noch Erfahrung im Umgang mit Waffen geprüft. Alles, worauf es ankommt, ist Grips und taktisches Geschick. Während der 13 Missionen feuern Sie keinen einzigen Schuss persönlich ab. Vielmehr besteht Ihre Aufgabe darin, zwei vierköpfige Trupps sicher durch die Hauptstadt des fiktiven Wüstenstaates Zekistan zu lotsen.

Full Spectrum Warrior rămâne și pe PC (la fel ca pe Xbox) un joc de referință. Este o abordare originală a unui gen care nu a avut parte de jocuri prea bune în ultima vreme. Este un joc tactic și antrenant, excelent realizat și care, mă repet, vă va oferi o experiență inedită. Merită!

Was so aussieht, kann eigentlich nur ein Action-Spiel sein. Ist es aber nicht! Full Spectrum Warrior vereint Action- und Taktik-Elemente in perfekter Balanche. Das ist anfangs etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig. Etwa wenn meine Mannen einen fünf Meter entfernten Terroristen nur deshalb nicht treffen, weil er gerade hinter einem Sofa steht. Aber wenn man sich erstmal vom reinen Action-Konzept verabschiedet hat, macht es einen Heidenspaß, mit einem Team den Feind zu beschäftigen, während das andere einen weiten Bogen schlägt und dem Feind unbemerkt in den Rücken fällt.

Still, nitpicky design and technical limitations aside, the 12 hours or so that you'll be playing the single-player game are almost always enjoyable, challenging, and entertaining. It's fair to note the game's limitations, and that allowing the player to do more with their squad rather than merely move them in groups of four might open up the tactical side of the game (as you can with basically any other squad-based shooter ever made), but so long as you enjoy FSW for what it is rather than what it isn't or what it could have been, you'll sit back and admire one of the most refreshingly original approaches to war-gaming there has been since the squad-based sub-genre first crawled out of the bunker six years ago.

Full Spectrum Warrior a tout pour s'imposer comme un jeu de tactique de référence grâce à un gameplay complet, réaliste et une interface de rêve. Le titre de Pandemic est l'un des plus immersifs qui soit, non seulement par cette jouabilité originale, mais également en raison d'éléments d'ambiance soignés. Malheureusement, le level design n'est pas à la hauteur, linéaire et n'offrant qu'une suite de situations dont la solution est par trop évidente. Le challenge n'est pas au rendez-vous, mais au moins "on s'y croit".

Bedenken ze eindelijk nog eens een leuk en vernieuwend spel, werken ze het toch wel niet helemaal af.

Nevertheless, there's no denying that Full Spectrum Warrior boasts a great presentation and a unique design. However, the gameplay itself just doesn't stack up quite as well. The campaign goes through the same paces until it ends abruptly after a little more than 10 hours, and it doesn't invite much replay value after that--not just because the missions play out the same way each time but also because you can't skip the cutscenes in between gameplay sequences. Most military buffs probably won't get past Full Spectrum Warrior's lack of gameplay realism, and they won't find much in the way of real depth, variety, or lasting appeal in it, either. So it says a lot for the game that, in spite of these admittedly significant setbacks, it's still ultimately worth checking out if you're looking for something completely different.

With its simple controls and even simpler tactics, Full Spectrum Warrior might be the world’s first beer-and-pretzels real-time strategy game. In fact, like the perennial barroom favorite Golden Tee, you can actually more or less play the game with one hand while holding a cold beverage in the other, As long as you’re not expecting anything more, there’s something to be said for that until it wears out its welcome about halfway through. Full Spectrum Warrior is an uncomplicated, pretty diversion.

Le concept de FSW me plaît beaucoup, mais il y a trop peu de combattants et pas assez de variété dans les tactiques jouables pour maintenir l'intérêt longtemps. Les petits défauts techniques et bugs d'interface deviennent alors très frustrants.
