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.
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.
Historical Accuracy: 11/20
