In late 1993, the United States launched dual military operations in Mogadishu and Somalia. Delta Force Operatives and Army Rangers were sent in to capture Somalian warlords and restore order. Experience the intense combat of Operation Restore Hope in this groundbreaking first-person shooter. As a Delta Force operative you must participate in a number of daring and intense raids against the oppressive Somalian warlords in and around Mogadishu. Are you up to it?
As the game begins, you find yourself in the middle of a huge conflict armed with your rifle and charged with the task of with eliminating any enemy that attacks you. It may feel like you've been thrown in the deep end in the beginning, but you'll quickly learn how to get around, take cover and fire your weapon accurately using a mouse and keyboard.
Black Hawk Down comes with the usual arsenal of weapons, dozens of levels, and a fine set of multi-player options, but it's the new AI system that makes it a better game. Enemy troops and units now react accordingly to your actions and will in many cases attempt to hunt you down.
Set in locales such as the treacherous South American jungle and some of the most remote islands of the Persian Gulf, Team Sabre once again casts you as a member of the Delta Force Team and charges you with a variety of high-profile tasks, such as taking out a mountain stronghold, infiltrating enemy oilfields, and capturing a chemical weapons convoy.
There are a total of 10 new single-player missions, set across two new campaigns, as well as the introduction of a host of new weapons, such as the H&K G3A3, the H&K G36E and the H&K PSG1 Sniper rifle. New transport appears in the form of a MH-53M PaveLow IV helicopter and a RHIB Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat, and a new feature means that you can now play selected missions as a British SAS soldier.
Let's not forget the multiplayer aspect, as these games are so much more fun when experienced over a LAN or the Internet. Team Sabre adds a total of 30 new maps across which you can attempt to assassinate your mates, as well introducing Mod support for building your own multiplayer battlefields.
