Sword In The Sand*


quality: Star full.png Star full.png Star full.png Star full.png Star full.png
gameplay: Star full.png Star full.png Star full.png Star full.png Star empty.png pro: Small map, quick completion. Great training ground.
con: Not much differences in the terrain, some planes though.
user experiences: Great terrain to start experiencing the game. Has no sea level, which leaves something to experience in the (near) future. The map is crowded with targets and targets of opportunity. The final battle end up in zone 016,004 (blue force victory). Overtaking FARPS is a great strategy for a fast campaign outcome.
briefing: For ten years both Saudi Arabia and Yemen have been squabbling over the exact course of their mutual border, resulting in frequent armed clashes. As both sides re-arm with the sate of the art equipment from their respective superpower patrons the discovery of rich oil deposits in the disputed region escalates the tension. Finally, another confrontation on the border triggers one or both side to lose patience and the desert reverberates to the sound of helicopter engines as battle is joined over a 'line in the sand'.
