Conflict: Desert Storm

In my quest to briefly review and grade everything I play or do – I present to you the surprisingly playable, Conflict: Desert Storm.

Year Released: 2002

Developer: Pivotal Games

Publisher: Gotham Games

System(s): PlayStation 2 / GameCube / Xbox / Windows / Mobile

Type of Third Person Game: Military/Tactical

Problem protagonist is preventing: Just like the real Gulf War in 1991 – A US led coalition is retaliating against Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi forces occupying Kuwait.

Other notes:

Conflict: Desert Storm is the first game in the series.

Starts off in: Kuwait/Iraqi Border

Ends up in: Baghdad, Iraq

Protagonists: Your choice between American or British led coalition forces.

All in all Conflict: Desert Storm would be an unremarkable game if it didn’t feature such an ignored military conflict. The tactical aspect doesn’t hold a candle to the Socom series but if you can stomach the eye rolling chest pounding towards the end it’s a pretty entertaining and insightful affair.
