Black Hawk Down Demo & Impressions
I've always had a soft spot for the Delta Force series ever since my first online sniper fight. Folks liked to complain about the voxels but I always found they gave you a chance to actually hide instead of squatting in a bush and pretending the enemy can't see you like most games. There's a new Black Hawk Down demo out now and it clocks in at 132 megs. It contains a new single player map and a new multiplayer CTF map.
Thanks EA!Update: Read more for some quick impressions!
I just finished spending some time with the new Black Hawk Down demo and while the single player shows promise, the weak AI really hurts its chances come release day. The multiplayer though.. hoo wah! It has a very similar feel to the original Delta Force multiplayer but without all the pixilated voxels everywhere. Runs really well, looks good and best of all, there is some real cover to hide in! The net code seems very solid and the CTF works just as well as the earlier games.
If you like shooting people in a multiplayer environment, don't pass up this demo!
