About the Game

The U.S. Army is the most powerful ground force in the entire world. The backbone of a ground invasion is the U.S. Army Infantry, and in the midst of combat, their skills, courage, and teamwork are put to the test.
While readiness continues to be the U.S. Army's top priority, how it goes about its business is changing. Full Spectrum Warrior began as a training aid for the U.S. Army to reinforce Army doctrine and team effort within the troops. It is the most realistic portrayal of Infantry-level urban warfare via unique tactical action gameplay. Players become the Squad Leader, commanding Alpha and Bravo squads. There is potential for danger down every alley, behind every window. Watch those angles folks, we've got a job to do here. Hooah!
  • Unique combination of tactical and action gameplay.
  • Authentic implementation of U.S. Army Infantry doctrine.
  • Simple control scheme lets you command eight soldiers in real time.
  • Squad equipment reflects real weaponry and equipment currently in use by the U.S. Army.
  • Immersive urban environments with danger around every corner.
  • 2-player co-op, each player controls one fire team.
  • Includes 2 exclusive bonus levels not available on Xbox.

I played the expasion pack for this game called Ten Hammers - which was really cool and I liked it - so I decided to buy the orginal one "FSW" and I'm not dissapointed at all. I recommend this game every person who like tactic games.

Full Spectrum Warrior is definitely showing it's age, mostly in the fact that it's barely functional on modern PCs and less that it didn't age well. You should save your $5-10 and go get a PS2 version if you really feel the need to play this game.

Too bad!! This game totally can't run right now. It has many bugs in new pc, in win7 and no one want to fix it. It should have a patch.

This is a very tentative recommendation. I really want to love this game to bits. It creates a really interesting small scale tactical experience that I've never seen in another game. It is not a shooter. Don't expect something like Conflict Desert Storm.

The problem is this game is fairly broken. There's horrendous performance issues and the sound is bugged to hell.

The performance issues are largely caused by the game constantly trying to contact a server that no longer exists. To find this you can add the following line to your hosts file: "127.0.0.1 fswpc.available.gamespy.com"

If you don't know what a hosts file is you probably shouldn't try to attempt this. It's a system file and that means it's serious business.

The sound problems have no simple fix. You'll just have to live with constantly glitched sound if you want to experience this game.
