Nostalgia Drive.

Bought it in Steam just to pay homage for this masterpiece, despite having a DVD copy of every game.
Actually still the best Tactical TPS series. Waiting for Desert Storm 2 and Vietnam.
And yup, Denied Ops is awful.
Morons whining about graphics etc, just shut up and play your CoD or smth


Also hate Global Storm for what they did to Foley >_<

The Good:
1: Unique team-based action shooter w/ skills and level setting.
2: Command your soldiers, or directly take control of him.
3: Many enemy units include: infantry, IFVs, tanks and choppers.
4: Choose your OWN way to complete missions, stealth or frontal assault.
5: Campaign based on true history.
6: Playable jeeps and IFVs.
7: Can call in artillery or air strikes.

The Bad:
1: Poor 3rd person control.
2: Not "action" enough.
3: "HARD" is too hard.
4: Enemies are very stupid.
5: Command system takes time to learn and familiar with.

One of the best squad based games I've ever played.

Lots of people might say this game is clunky and awkward. But once you learn to pass through some of the lumps, the game is rock solid. The game has a quasi-realistic atmosphere to it, you die quickly, but there's still tons of fire fights to keep you excited. The ability to switch between squad members is an astounding feature that I wish most games would have today. Level design is above par with most games today, open ended with no signs that say, "You must go this way."

All in all I'd recommend this to somebody looking for an old school solid 3rd person military shooter.

Although the PC version of Conflict: Desert Storm is actually quite inferior to the console version, it still stands as the greatest third-person perspective co-operative war-themed videogame to ever exist and I'm going to explain why in extremely thorough detail.

The ability to command a squad actually has significant value in this game. Because the squad consists of merely 2 to 4 unique soldiers, progressing through the game will actually have you grow a heavy attachment toward them (some more than others, due to either preferring a specific weapon set or merely for the personality of the character). For this reason, this game could be considered the original Team Fortress, and the game's sequels further elaborates upon their existing personalities.

As the squad is your most viable resource, you are made to take extra precautions to ensure the safety of every man. This is a very fun task as you are given almost literally complete control over everything your squad does. Don't want Foley to carry his sniper rifle for some reason? Give it to Bradley! Don't even want Foley to participate? Leave him behind! I must admit, the storyline and graphics are sadly not quite up to standard and could use some work, but in the end the gameplay is all that matters, and it more than makes up for the lack of creative in-game dialogue and pleasing textures.

The best thing about this game in my opinion is the freedom you're presented upon entering a mission. I've already explained controlling the squad, but another aspect that many other games don't seem to implement very often is the freedom to be able to tackle the situation anyway you desire. Whether it means trying to find and destroy every enemy vehicle and collect every weapon pickup, or merely sprint through each stage achieving the bare minimum, as long as you achieve the task one way or another it doesn't matter.

This game is great stuff, and I hope to see some of the other games in this franchise in the Steam store sometime, perhaps even with a more stable multiplayer mode or something.

Ahh!, this brings back some good memories. I played all of the Conflict series and enjoyed every one of them. They are squad based games with you in control of four characters. You can swap between the players via various commands. Great game play and considering this game is over a decade old decent graphics. Better than the early Tom Clancy games. Highly recommended. I hope to see the second Desert Storm game that had improved graphics and also the third in the series Conflict Vietnam (my favorite). The fourth was the best of the bunch w.r.t graphics, that was released six years ago and is called conflict Global Storm. The final one is Conflict Denied Ops which has been available for a few years on Steam; I don't consider it as part of the original series because you control only two characters. I'm surprised its taken so long to get this one on Steam. (I too have asked for these Comerie) :)

I played this game for a long time on the Xbox for a long time and then I found out that it was available on Steam. Even though cut-scene animation is pretty terrible, the gameplay is actually really fun. I highly recommend this to old-school and third person shooters. 8/10

Now this game takes me way back, I used to play it on PS2 not long after the console was released. and I must say this game has unknowingly shaped the course of shooters since. Although not as well refined as later Conflict games such as: Conflict: Global Storm but even so its game you should definatley play at least once.

Recommended if you like games such as:
Conflict (The other games in the series)
ARMA 2
Operation Flashpoint
S.W.A.T 4

Doesn't launch in Win 8.1 for some reason. It gets past the splash screen with all the logos before minimizing to the desktop. It keeps running but clicking on the program in the taskbar doesn't work.

Compatibility mode made no difference. Shame... cos this was all I played as a kid on my good old PS2, along with the rest the Conflict games (Apart from Denied Ops, I didn't like it).

Would still recommend it if you played the original and can get it to work! Good memories. Ah well, £5 that could've been spent on something that works, suppose you can't expect any better from a 12 year old game lol.

ohh, i remember the great desert storm series back in 2002 and yes i'm pleased that steam is selling this classic game or maybe 'cos i've complained about this game was not on the steam categories some while ago (hmm, perhaps they had listened this time...well done steam) ...lol, graphics looks rather dated now but good fun though.....highly recommended.
