Ridley Scott’s Black Hawk Down gripped the public’s imagination with it’s edgy, bloody and downright terrifying portrayal of US intervention in the warlord run nightmare slum city of Mogadishu, capital of war-torn Somalia. Now Novalogic bring an interactive version of the true story to PS2.

Already a hit as part of the acclaimed Delta Force series on home computer, the PS2 outing features all the action that made the original a success. The US army spent 10 months on its doomed mission to the African country, and the game features missions based on the events in that time. Each of the missions has various objectives, and you’ll find yourself fighting in the claustrophobic close quarters of the lawless city and at a distance too, picking off threatening targets with a sniper rifle. You won’t have to do it all on foot though, as you can take comparative refuge in land vehicles and helicopters and unleash the heavy weaponry that the machines are equipped with. As you’d expect from a Delta Force game, the enemy boast cunning and realistic AI, and extra depth is added by the inclusion of tactics and scenarios supplied by experienced real-life special ops soldiers. You take the role of a specialised Delta Force elite soldiers, a unit so undercover that their existence is not even acknowledged by the US government. Armed with MP5 H&K sub-machine guns, or M21 sniper rifles amongst others, you’ll need to think on your feet to survive, and as well as the Black Hawk helicopters of the title, you’ll have access to rugged Humvees and the nimble AH-6 ‘little bird’ helicopter that can replace its rocket launchers with a rig for infantry to hang on to before being delivered for lightning attacks.

A debut for the Delta Force series on PS2, full online support is included, with the facility for a rather impressive 32 players to compete online. Go! Go! Go!
