I'll skip the bloody details. I'll avoid talking about how your entire team gets wiped out in the introduction storyline, and how your character is forced to go underground, calling in contacts from the CIA and other sources to gather the resources to strike back against a terrible threat. Delta Force: Urban Warfare, takes the Delta Force games where they've never gone before, into the urban environment. The missions plunge you into a single player storyline the likes of which have never been seen' outside of the twenty dozen first person shooter storylines that get released each year. Simple and not very compelling, the story serves as window dressing to get you into a realism-based FPS. Warning: Watch out for the loading times.
In this FPS, you carry a primary weapon, a backup weapon, and a collection of accessories' and that's where the realism stops. Enemies can be stopped with just a few shots, but tend to radio in before they die, calling for a backup. That'd be all right if it didn't seem like the supply of guards was limitless. Although it advertises the ability to stealth through a mission, that's a next to impossible goal, and the AI is so poor it's hard to fail out of anything other than sheer stupidity.
Similar to all of its cousins, the graphics in Delta Force are remarkably poor. It might be a reflection of my support of next-gen gaming systems, but I don't think that older consoles like the PSX were ever really designed well for FPS titles. The audio is okay as the sounds are obviously aimed at being modeled from real world weaponry, and the game features a little bit of good music from a band.
All in all, I didn't find much to get interested in. Delta Force is just another sub-par title that will blend in with the rest of the mediocre games released this year.
