Full Spectrum Warrior: Ten Hammers review

  • A fine military mental workout
  • Enjoyable narrative
  • Excellent multiplayer modes
  • It's fun-killingly hard
  • Why can't you save anywhere?
  • Nasty learning curve for newbies

The sequel, again set in a fictional version of the Middle East, improves on the original's cerebral take on military games, most notably by incorporating key command upgrades, like being able to order either team with the other (instead of having to constantly switch back and forth) and split your four-man groups into two-man "buddy teams." It also weaves a more interesting narrative, chronicling the lives of your eight primary soldiers through the accounts of a TV reporter doing a story on the squads. Profanity is put to excellent use, spicing up your virtual octet with a more rough-hewn, very human element. After all, most real guys use four-letter words liberally, too.
