Classic FPS with a focus on realistic feel and open maps that give you considerable leeway on how to complete missions.

Even with the window title bar blocking the top 2% of the screen's gameplay - the only real negative for this package - this is enormous fun. One of my favorite games from quite a long time ago, a no-frills FPS with (very evolutionarily early) squad tactics. The more difficult missions will still pack quite a challenge, and the graphics bring back memories. Fairly revolutionary for its time, and runs silky smooth on Windows 10 / Alienware Alpha with no nasty compatibility difficulties. Try it, you may fall in love with it! Not beautiful, but she's got it where it counts... a perfect introduction to the Delta Force universe.

I personally enjoy playing this game, if only for the nostalgia of it. Time has not been kind to this title and it's hard for me to recommend it to people looking to try it now for the first time. But if it's on sale or you just have money to burn there is quite a bit of game here and it defianlty takes me back to when I played it originally if your looking for that nostalgia factor.

Delta Force is better than whatever dumb shooter you like from this time period.

In a world where Call of Duty was never tactical, Rainbow Six had tiny maps, and SOCOM had broken AI, Delta Force is the premiere tactical shooter of the late 90s. Imagine Rainbow Six, worldwide, on giant outdoor maps. The size of the maps, quality of teammate command, and loadout choices combine to provide encounters that are never the same twice. Each mission can be approached from any direction. You can run into bases and twitch shoot, or you can paint it with air strikes, or you can snipe everyone, or you can send your buddies to get seen so you can ambush troops in valleys. The choice is always yours with Delta Force.

Delta Force 1 and 2 use a unique raycasting engine that directly draws voxels to screen every frame based on what you look at. In laymen, this means the game has infinite draw distance and maintains a consistent framerate on machines with absolutely no graphics hardware. This game will run on anything, provided its windows.

The only bad thing I can say about this game is that resolution is hard-coded to the executable, and the highest choice is 1024x768. To my knowledge, there are no tools to fix this or enable widescreen. It's a shame, because the voxel art style can get in the way when 1 game pixel is 4 on your actual monitor, and you have to force your monitor into 4:3 to stop stretching.

Still a great game, highly influential, was doing things with giant maps that games like Tribes would later get praise for. Every shooter fan should get this if they see it on sale.

Old good game. Works on Win7 great. Still fun, but graphic is really old (800x600 fullscreen max).
-5 campaigns (40 missions) from desert mountains to snow island plains
-Customizable equipment (should I snipe or should I boom)
-Fight against enemy troops, armored vehicles and even choppers!
-AI controlled friendly Alpha and Charlie squads. Share fun.
-Stylish black chopper that take you on base after missions.

Back in 98' i went into a Store that was going out of business,and saw a rack with random software on it,i went over and dug around and found a Copy of Delta Force..

This was my first Coop PC game and it got me hooked on Networked Gaming!!

I Highly Recommend This game and those that follow in the series.

Graphics are a little dated, but a more thrilling and realistic spec ops shooter is something I have yet to find...

This is recommend but only if you are looking for a retro tactical shooter,if you want a game that has polish or plays like a modern game then this is not for you.

With guns that dont really move have recoil or look real, and most shoot outs taking over 100 Meters away you will hardly feel like you are in a battle.

But the gameplay is good,guns have real bullets that will fire and you can see them travel the game has 2 snipers 2 handguns and 3 full auto guns.

That being said the game is short and has only a handfull of levels that all take place in large boring fields.

If you want to play a good delta force game get 2 is has many many more levels and a handfull of more guns and now that you can only get 1, 2, task force dagger and land warrior together you have little reason to play this game because you have 3 other choices and they are all better.

But its retro and is so short that you might as well try it.

Works well on modern computers but has a few issues with starting up sometimes.

If it acts werid just restart your computer and try again,that being said if you cant play it then you wont be missing much because the second game is just all around better.

So if you want to get the boot camp for the other 3 games then play this one if the other ones get boring.
But if you want to get the boot camp for this game,dont its not worth it.

♥♥♥♥in' fun. This is how military shooters should be today. Great gameplay, fun scenarios that put you at a disadvantage and large, completely open maps. Playing this with Manowar in the background destroys.

An Extremely enjoyable semi-realistic shooter for its time. I bought the game again recently to play it purely for nostalgic purposes and its just as I remember it. Gameplay is really fun but good god the graphics didnt hold up. Due to the Voxel engine it uses everything is highly pixelated, especially when targetting enemies at a distance but in the end its more of an annoyance than a hinderance. But graphics aside, if your a fan of Novalogic games and old school games in general then this game is worth a shot.

Final Score: 80/100
