Description official descriptions

The Outfit is a World War II game that, unlike many other games in the genre, focuses almost entirely on destruction. While you will usually need to take a tactical approach to gameplay when on foot, you will earn points called "Field Units" that can be used to buy equipment like tanks and gun turrets to destroy Axis soldiers. You can simply buy equipment by using the Y button on your controller in conjunction with the left thumbstick button to select an item to buy. As such, the game developers call The Outfit "destruction on demand". The equipment you buy with Field Units will initially be occupied by AI-controlled soldiers, but you can replace whoever is using the equipment so that you can have some fun blowing stuff up. Sporting a fully destructible environment, almost everything in The Outfit can be blown up.

You can play as one of three characters. Tommy Mac can take lots of damage before dying, and comes equipped with a flamethrower and machine gun, but equipment will cost him more Field Units than other characters. Deuce Williams comes equipped with a rocket launcher and pistol, and doesn't need as much Field Units to buy stuff as Tommy does, but he isn't nearly as strong as Tommy. JD Tyler is the most accurate of the three, sporting a sniper rifle and shotgun, but unfortunately he will die with one shot, so he must take an extremely tactical approach to gameplay.

Good Fun

The Good
One of the first true next generation games for the Xbox 360, you can destroy nearly everything which makes the game longer than it needs to be, one of the levels you can destroy a whole town if you decide to. The acting within the game is hilarious at some points with good clean humour. The AI can be very intelligent especially on the harder difficulty levels but still has the fun factor to keep the game fresh and exciting. The mechanics in the game are very intelligent as you can destroy the landscapes and there is instant transition from the weapons and vehicles that appear throughout the levels of the game. The graphics being considerably new to the next gen era are still very clever and clean looking especially in the High Definition cut scenes and run smoothly through the game. The sound quality being in full Dolby Surround has a massive effect to the gameplay and as being such an early game comes accross quite impessively. I personally found the single player to be very humourous and thought intriguing. Each level changing the speed of play and sometimes being caught un-aware of what is coming next was great fun.

The Bad
The multiplayer function is very hard to find a match, with it being a near launch game, not many people are playing this online now and there was terrible lag when you do get a game as it is normally against someone out with the UK. There was a recent update for the game but no massive difference was made to the gameplay online.

The Bottom Line
A great singleplayer game that shows how far things have come in the Xbox 360 game planet. Way ahead of it's time for the single player but multi player leaves a lot to be desired.
