    Post  Ryoken on Sun Sep 13, 2009 2:57 am

    What score does this game deserves from you? Follow this format:

    Single Player: 1.0-10 (Ignore this if you haven't played the single player yet)
    Graphics: 1.0-10 (Blur effects, Details and textures,etc..)
    Gameplay: 1.0-10 (Controls, atmosphere, realistic or just for the looks?)
    Multiplayer Experience: 1-10 (Title says it all)
    Sounds: 1.0-10 (Firing sounds, death sounds, grenade sounds, etc..)
    Replayability: 1.0-10 (Does this game somehow makes you play it? Does this game never gets old?)
    Overall: 1.0-10

    Since I created this thread, might as well go first..

    Single Player: 8.4/10


    I don't see any story in here. It's like a normal day for the SWAT team. But there are some funny moments in single player. The AI in single player are very smart. Suspects awaits in the dark corner until a SWAT member does something stupid. They also threaten to kill civilians. It's like your in the game itself! The SWAT AI isn't very smart. When they try to breach a room with armed suspects. one ends up getting killed because they take too long to throw the grenade in some areas. I also found out that SWAT sometimes kills civilians accidentally. Now we don't want to replay the whole mission again, do we? From other players, they experienced some SWAT members disobeying orders? I never experience that when I play single player. The missions makes players very serious with their orders to the SWAT team. The last difficulty are freakishly difficult because it has a limit on what score do you need to play the next one. You can't just go in and kill every suspect because you are a SWAT, you save lives. The missions are also very scary that makes the players feel the atmosphere of what kind of people are doing these days.. Every time I play Single player, it's like I'm playing it for the first time!


    Graphics: 9.3/10


    Even if this game is old, you know this game is great in graphics. Every detail in the game is fixed in a complex but very interesting ways. What I like about this game is the blur effects. The lights from the back of the kevlar vest of players makes me pause to appreciate it. The effects are what makes me love this game. Those effects like the muzzle flashes, wall fragments falling, the bullets falling from the guns, it's so realistic! The graphics are so awesome but it requires a very fast computer (For me I think..) The graphics are what makes you feel that you are in the game itself.


    Gameplay: 9.0/10


    The controls for the game are perfect just like in other FPS games that we have. The WSAD directional keys never gets old! The game is world-widely known for its realism. You can't just go rambo in the game and kill people without you getting shot. When you kill someone, it tooks about 2-5 shots to kill him. When you are holding a gun, you need to make sure it is accurate like in sniping. When running the accuracy is devastatingly poor. Can't say much about the gameplay. This game isJust one word that describes it all: realism.. So realism fans.. rejoice!


    Multiplayer Experience: 8.9/10


    Yup, yup. The multiplayer is great too. The game has modes like Coop, Vip Escort and Barricaded Suspects. I often see a lot of people very cooperative to each other. For example: When you are about to get arrested by the enemies, there is one who is hiding in a corner, ready to use a grenade to get you out of there and the two of you work together to arrest those guys. A great strategy like the Bait trap. There are friendly players online who are willing to give any beginners some tips to get better in the game. But the game has bad sides too. There are some very cheap weapons like the .45 smg where its accurate and deadly. There are glitches in here that can't be fixed.( I don't know if this is fixed in newer versions. Mine is 1.0. Can't be bothered patching it.) Multiplayer is cool, friendly players, few rule breakers, but it is all good.

    Sounds: 9.5/10


    This game is all about originality in sounds. All of the sounds in this game are brand new! The SWAT 4 sounds are known for its realism. The rifles, smgs, shotguns, this game give sounds the way it should be like in real life. The voice acting is top notch. This game is very LOUD so might wanna adjust the speakers for the game hahah! I can't say much about the sounds because when you hear it, you know what score it deserves.


    Replayability: 8.7/10


    Yeah this game makes you wanna play it every time because it is just like you are playing it for the first time! The single player missions are very complex. They position each suspect, each civilian differently and not always in the same place everytime you play it (Except for some objectives in the mission..) Playing multiplayer everytime is an awesome experience. Everything you will see might be a while before you forget it. Playing it with your friends with specific orders or tips is a BLAST that makes you want to do it all over again.


    Overall: 9.1/10


    This game is genius! I recommend this game to everyone. It has good singleplayer and a very satisfying multiplayer. This game isn't counter strike, you need to think before you act on something. There are a few flaws in here but it isn't very major. This is a SWAT game that is very original and has improved greatly from the older SWAT games This game is very fun for me and I'm sure it will be fun for you as well.


    Well thanks for reading this review or did you just scroll down...

    Single Player: 8
    Easy indeed. But i've always try sth different, like
    1. COLT python + pepper spray only
    2. Pepper Spray only
    3. Helmet + Gas Nade + Pepper Spray only
    4. Tazor + pepper Spray only
    5. Lethal gun only (but score 100)

    and i've learned alot from there. Not to mention the AI's aiming are as good as hackers.

    Storywise? Try a different game, nothing special here.

    Graphics: 8
    Decent, at least its not a pixel man running around. I simply dont like overdone graphics, it eats too much memory and causes lag easily. Not all players own a super PC ;[

    Gameplay: 8

    Definitely way better than Counterstrike, and require tactics. Good game.

    Not user friendly, however Gez did a great job on that. Need more patches or custom patches.

    Multiplayer Experience: 8
    the Multiplayer is great, i wud've rate it 9, but lack of antihack/dll injection shield updates/patches. But multiplayer requires more teamwork and tactics, which makes the game pretty fun too.

    Sounds: 9
    I cant play this game without sound. I like how the sound works, like when a player gets naded, they dont just show a system message or so, interesting anyhow. The sound also contributes to my gaming scores, one could play better if they can utilize the sound effects as their strategy.

    Replayability: 8
    Multiplayer especially, great experience. I dislike games tat can be won easily, i prefer tactical/strategical games.

    I have been playing for almost 2 years, i've known some playing as long as 4 years+. Even till today, Thers not alot of high ends graphic games that can keep my interest as long as this game.

    Overall: 8
    Hey pal, wanna go for swat4 after the drink? ;>
