STAFF REVIEW of Conflict: Desert Storm II : Back to Baghdad (Xbox)

Conflict: Desert Storm II : Back to Baghdad Box art A recreation of Conflict Desert Storm 1 with some improvements. You'll take command of a 4 man squad (including yourself) and must tough it through a slew of campaign levels. It's a great game if you like to run around and pop Iraqi's and just let the auto-aim do the job... but hardcore gamers WILL look else where, as did I.


The game can be played in 3rd or 1st person view. In 3rd person view, it's much easier to let the autoaim take control and hold down your trigger. Before you know it, you've cleared out the area. You're also able to issue commands to your squad members. Have your teammates hold their fire, drain their mags, hit the ground, follow you, or go whereever you're pointing. They're not too smart, either, but they get the job done... most of the time. Enemy AI only do a few things; shoot, run, and die. Fairly simple, not challeging, and very boring. Hardcore gamers, RS 3 is your game.


Eh, it looks a tad better than CDS 1. Ragdoll physics have been added and are a VERY welcome addition. Characters show physical harm when hit, and take some awkward positions when dead. The ragdoll physics are no where near RS3's level, but they're nice.


The sound is the most annoying. Period. Teammates will repeat the same thing over and over. Gun shots show no variations, and everything is very monotonous. An average sound investment at the best, but it could be a lot better.


Suggestions:
Target hardcore gamers. A simple lock-on and shoot system (even if AA is off) doesn't make the best game.


Overall: 7.0 / 10
Gameplay: 7.0 / 10
Visuals: 7.0 / 10
Sound: 7.0 / 10
