A first person shooter that uses tension to improve gameplay.
Delta Force: Xtreme is a first-person shooter that was made by NovaLogic. It is the seventh title in the series and it moves away from the type of game that Delta Force: Black Hawk Down is, and goes for an older series' style gameplay. There are three campaigns that take place in Peru, Novoya Zemlya and Chad.
You Feel Small
One of the more unique elements of the game is that you feel small. Many times you play games of this ilk and you feel like a magpie in an ants nest, yet for some reason this game makes you feel as if you are in a large and almost empty setting. You can be inside a village and not be sure if there are people in the house over to your left because it is too far away.
It adds a feeling of tension, and the fact that people do not jump out and start shooting right away will only add to that atmosphere. There are plenty of times where you may throw a grenade through an open window of a house you are sure is empty, only to go in and see three bodies on the ground from the blast. They were in there waiting for you to leave or enter the building; they were not hanging out of the windows like many first-person shooting games, nor were they charging at you without a care for their own survival.
There Are Plenty Of Fun Elements
The missions where you get to play with an automatic rifle and a sniper scope are fun. Even though your targets are far away and many times all you see are stick figures falling down, it is still oddly rewarding. Snipe them out, move in closer, snipe them a little more, move in close, get near to building and blast until everything that was moving…isn’t!
The music is very serious sounding and the sound effects are a lot of fun. The banging and crashing sounds of weapons and vehicles is very fulfilling on a user experience level.
Is It Any Good?
What is great about the game is how it differs from other FPS games. For example, it doesn’t have enemies running at you like with some of the Medal of Honor games, and the enemies may have trouble seeing you or hitting you, unlike FarCry where some enemies see you if you poke a toe from behind a wall.
- Great, epic and bombastic music
- Plenty to play around with
- Realistic combat in many parts
- Feelings of isolation and tension are used very well
- It would be nice if there were more diverse things to do
- The graphics could still use improving
- Is different from other FPS games, but not by enough to make it special
