3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Concept but Issues with Implementation January 27, 2007
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Joint Task Force lets you control tanks, infantry, harriers in more in a variety of battlefield situations.

The graphics are reasonably good here. Trees get knocked over when you roll over them in your tank, snow falls down onto the dusted battlefield, flags flutter in the breeze. Clicking on a unit shows you circles around them indicating the range of the various weapons the unit holds. It makes strategizing your next move relatively easy.

You can zoom in and out with great ease, and either do map control on your own or set the camera to follow a group. You have a few formations your units can move in, and infantry can 'go prone' if there's no cover around. There are numerous vehicles lying around - military and civilian - that you can hop into and drive.

You can skirmish in random setups with factions, maps and units that you want to practice with, and you can do full campaigns where you take on pre-set objectives. There's also online gameplay if you want to take on other humans.

There are "heroes" in this game which inspire your troops and order in new weapons and items. Each also has special skills - for example a weapons hero might let you repair vehicles more readily. Reinforcements get dropped off via helicopter and you actually get to choose up to X units that "fit" in that helicopter.

On our system the units move quickly and smoothly - the problem lies with the lack of strategy needed - but the high level of micromanagement necessary. Normally you can just plow ahead at the enemy forces, but every unit needs continual reminders of what they are supposed to be doing. There isn't a lot of cover or other types of advantages on many maps, meaning it ends up being a mass-up-and-go assault.

You can capture flags (i.e.

4.0 out of 5 stars a must have for RTS game fan September 28, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a must have game for RTS fans it has an amazing graphics and compared to other RTS game that you could finish by collecting as much resources and getting gazillion troops and doing a kamikazi attack, on this game those tactics won't cut it. you actually need to think here in where to position your men and vehicles and the JTF community is topnotch no snobs and screaming noob on your face they're helpfull and that goes to the developers aswell (they actually read the forum).

The only reason i gave the game 4 stars is there's a few thing that needs to be ironed out in the game and a few addition options needed but i suppose not every game is perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit slow, very crazy, uber fun March 19, 2007
By JazzCat
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was quite a good buy. Aside from stunning graphics, the gameplay is excellent, much more tactically oriented than many other games. And act5ion comes quite thick (escpecially in skirmish mode, where it may actually come a little TOO thick)

I reccoment it for any RTS fan, but if you aren't an RTS fan, maybe you should pass it up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice effects, horrible realism October 7, 2006
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
If you like nice graphics and cool effects - go for it. If you are looking for realism, well don't. Since when does an Abrams need three hits to crack a BMP? And since when does an Abrams tank shoot only as far as city block is long?

If you want the 'real thing' stick to the old 'Close Combat' series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not your average RTS July 14, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I LOVE This game.period. The gameplay is amazing, even if i comes with a pretty steep learning curve. The graphics are phenomenal. The story line is great, and the actual game dynamics and usable items etc are almost endless. GREAT GAME!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple game October 6, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I played this game for a few weeks for hours every other day. I found it was pretty simple to kill the enemy just by taking the airfield and defending it while gradually building up your forces between each wave of attacks by the enemy. It was fun to fight against 3 AI forces but it was easy just to defend the area you start out in while the other 3 forces took each other out,all the while you build up your tanks and call in strikes on the remaining forces repair trucks and missile trucks. I thought the graphics were pretty good but I'm not sure what the standard for RTS games is because i have only played a few. I didn't have any problems playing it offline but i was never able to actually play it online but i blame that on my internet provider since i have many problems with online games because of them. I would say for $20 this game is worth a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow but very interesting September 27, 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game a few days ago and so far, It's been really interesting. I am a huge fan of C&C games and this one is quite close but a bit more realistic. You actually run out of amo and you need to call in supplies which ads to the "excitment" of the game.

Go for it... It's a good game.
