Full Spectrum Warrior
Published by: THQ
Developed by: Pandemic Studios
“The US Army is the most powerful ground force in the entire world. The backbone of a ground invasion is the US Army Infantry, and in the midst of combat, their skills, courage, and teamwork are put to the test. While readiness continues to be the US Army’s top priority, how it goes about its business is changing.
Full Spectrum Warrior began as a training aid for the US Army to reinforce Army doctrine and team effort within the troops. It is the most realistic portrayal of Infantry-level urban warfare via unique tactical action gameplay. Players become the Squad Leader, commanding Alpha and Bravo squads. There is potential for danger down every alley, behind every window. Watch those angles folks, we’ve got a job to do here.
A unique combination of tactical and action gameplay. Authentic implementation of US Army Infantry doctrine. Simple control scheme lets you command eight soldiers in real-time. Squad equipment reflects real weaponry and equipment currently in use by the US Army. Immersive urban environments with danger around every corner. 2-player co-op, each player controls one fire team”.Xbox

“LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures takes the fun and creative construction of LEGO and combines it with the wits, daring and non-stop action from the original cinematic adventures that enthralled audiences everywhere [Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade].
With a unique tongue-in-cheek take on the original adventures, LEGO Indiana Jones follows the escapades of Dr Jones through the jungles of South America to the mountaintops of India. Fans can build, battle and brawl their way through their favourite cinematic moments, from Indy’s entanglements with snakes to his dashing boulder run”.Xbox
