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

For all of these reasons, Ten Hammers should be a can't-miss game. Unfortunately, an unholy level of difficulty squelches the fun, and bullets will frequently find your grunts unless they're behind the most fortress-like of cover. Death comes frequently and from every angle - often from an unseen foe - forcing you to revert back to a previous checkpoint (of which there aren't many) and try again.

Perhaps the thought was to try and realistically recreate the intense moral danger our serving soldiers live with every day, but it comes at the cost of fun, and ultimately, aren't you are paying $50 for this videogame to entertain you?
