The orders interface ; Excellent graphics ; Squad AI is a cut above most

The enemy AI lags behind ; Linear levels remove the game's strategy ; Less to do in co-op mode

TVG has been waiting eagerly to get our hands on this title for ages after seeing the early code, as well as interviewing the team, Pandemic Studios

Full Spectrum Warrior is one of the smartest and most informed ways we have seen in creating a realistic setting/atmosphere in a game and this offers so much more than you can possibly image. It’s both convincing and you become fascinated by the...

Based on a military simulation used to train soldiers in the US Army, Full Spectrum Warrior brings the extreme realism of urban combat to your Xbox like no other. Nominee for six prestigious awards at E3 2003, Full Spectrum Warrior was looking to be...

Originally commissioned as a combat training simulator for the U.S. Army, Full Spectrum Warrior is certainly unlike anything else you have played on the PS2 before. This is mainly because the game retains most of the original Army simulator portion...

This title has dominated my days and nights recently since I first threw it into the PS2. With the amount of games that I am privileged to play, it's actually not that many that hold my attention as much as this one has. What's it about? Well let me...

And you thought every war game was a gung-ho blast-fest.

Despite feeling a little detached at first, FSW reveals a surprising amount of depth and offers a decent, long-term challenge. There's no doubt that the more gung-ho gamer is going to be rather disappointed, but if you're willing to give it a try,...

Does Full Spectrum Warrior live up to the hype? How could it? Most games don't, we must remember that this game has no equal, with very little on the market to compare it to, Full Spectrum Warrior is a unique breath of fresh air to the genre.

Product Specifications

Full Spectrum Warrior is based on a light infantry-training simulator for the U.S. Army as a tool to reinforce Army doctrine and squad tactics amongst troops. Full Spectrum Warrior is a squad-based, tactical-action game that delivers the experience of squad level command in the heat of battle. The product was developed with expertise from University of Southern California's Institute for Creative Technologies, which worked with Pandemic to bring state-of-the-art technology to the game. Designed to simulate today's challenges of urban combat missions, Full Spectrum Warrior delivers a level of realism and accuracy that has never been seen in a military-based game.
