Furthermore, there are no armor or health packs to help you out. This might be ok on the hardest difficulty setting, but not for easy. This might not be so bad if, as I mentioned before, all the terrorists weren't great marksman, but they are. Yes, even on easy. As if this wasn't enough, you can't pick up weapons
if they have a corpse lying on top of it, fair enough, nice and realistic you might think. WRONG, the corpse will often be protruding from a wall, as if it were a mirage! The deceased having fallen through it when you killed him. And, it also might only be a hand or a head that is blocking the gun, very frustrating indeed.
Graphically, this ain't too bad, without being knock-you-off-your-seat great, it's solid. This of course goes right out of the window when you start playing because everything is so damn sloooooooow! Multiplayer?
Unless you've got a real power PC, forget it, this makes the regular action look positively pacey! I have a mid range PC which was only bought in December and you'd think I was trying to use a 900mhz processor!!
Sound again is inoffensive, there's not much music to speak of and what speech there is is functional, if a little repetitive at times.
To sum up, this is far too flawed and bugged by today's first person shooter standards. It does little that other FPS's do, and puts huge demands on anything but the most up to date systems. It's a shame, because this is the sort of title of which I have a lot, and that usually I get a lot of playtime from. New World Order however, is frustrating enough for me to never want to play again after completing this review.
