Even at ten bucks, there are better ways to spend your money. Even though the graphics are basic enough to play on a low-grade system, and multiplayer might offer some momentary diversion, I'd rather surf the bargain bin for some "oldie but goodies" that have gradually made it down to that section, rather than get a game that seemed designed for it. The feel of Delta Ops is several years out of date, with blocky graphics, simplistic animation and basic AI, even thought it has a surprising amount of realism and graphical customization. I don't think this could have much more appeal beyond some cheap LAN gaming, but even then, there are plenty of bargain-bin priced games that will offer more in this department as well.

Activision Value's new shooter, Shadow Force: Razor Unit, isn't even mentioned on the official Activision Value Web site. That's an implicit review you should probably trust, because, even judged against the somewhat threadbare standards of budget publishing, Shadow Force isn't real good.

Shadow Force: Razor Unit lijkt op het eerste gezicht een typisch budgetspel. Het had nog maanden van ontwikkeling moeten doorstaan, voordat het een acceptabel spel voor een volle prijs was geworden. Maar zelfs de titel budgettitel zou het niet eens mogen hebben, want de gemiddelde prijs van rond de € 22,50 is dan nog te hoog. Wacht maar rustig tot het spel voor onder de € 10,- verkrijgbaar is, of geef je geld uit aan de budgetversie van bijvoorbeeld Delta Force. Dan krijg je wel waar voor je geld.

Dans le petit monde très fermé du FPS antiterroriste, toute sortie est un défi, tant il est difficile de se démarquer de ce qui a déjà été fait. Le succès des versions successives de Counter Strike, qui dominent très nettement les parties en réseau, n’incite pas à la nouveauté. C’est pourtant à cette tâche, fort louable ceci dit, qu’Activision s’est attelé avec la sortie en juillet 2003 de Delta Ops Army Special Forces. Objectif atteint ? C’est loin d’être sûr…

There's really no need for this game to exist. For Activision Value to have essentially repackaged a bad old game as a bad new game is an obvious and despicable attempt to cash in on the recent military operations going on in the Middle East. Despite this, Delta Ops: Army Special Forces is an awful game that isn't worth your time or money. Avoid it at all costs.
We've seen plenty of FPS games here at Deaf Gamers and without a shadow of a doubt this has to be the worst. It's not that it isn't subtitled (it is actually) it's just that it doesn't look that good and what's worse it feels terrible so all in all you have a very bad experience from start to finish and there are a lot better things to waste almost five pounds on. The game is the usual 'you're part of an anti-terrorist organisation and you have to put a stop to global terrorism' routine. Whilst this is great in the Tom Clancy games because the developers know how to do it correctly here it's just a mess and completely uninspiring.

Une fois de plus l'argument de la gamme à petit prix n'est qu'une excuse pour essayer de rentabiliser une daube sans nom, peut-être la pire de toutes. Allez, une dernière fois, en 2002 et 2001 sont sortis NOLF 2, Jedi Knight 2, Return To Castle Wolfenstein, Medal of Honor, Soldier Of Fortune 2, Alien Vs Predator 2 et... Shadow Force : Razor Unit. Tous vendus aujourd'hui environ 15 euros. Cherchez l'erreur.
