Delta Force 3 - Land Warrior: If you want to mow down terrorists using the latest firearms in a variety of colorful settings, then this is your game.
When most other shooters had you locked indoors, hunting for power-ups as you fought fantasy creatures, Delta Force helped usher in the hard-core tactical shooter. Delta Force and its sequel focused on relatively realistic Special Forces actions. Single shots could kill, stealth mattered, and you could engage targets outdoors from extreme distances. While marred by weak enemy artificial intelligence, the new third installment, Delta Force: Land Warrior, builds on this formula. It introduces a new graphicsengine, some of the latest military firearms, and 30 colorful single-player missions. In real life, Delta Force is the US Special Forces unit that carries out the most difficult and sensitive counterterrorist and commando operations. In Delta Force: Land Warrior, you can play as five different Delta Force operatives, each with his or her own specialties. Characters have detailed backgrounds, and they're pretty interesting; for instance, heavy gunner Pitbull was a heavyweight fighter from the Bronx, while Gas Can, the resident demolitions expert, is a good ol' boy from Texas. These characterizations have little bearing on gameplay, but each character's special abilities do: One is a swift swimmer, another can hold heavy weapons steadier, another is a superb knife fighter, and so on.
