4.0 out of 5 stars A Bright Cheery Cartoon of WWII March 21 2006
By Lisa Shea - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Outfit has you performing missions in World War II Europe. You're the Allies, out to stop a rogue German soldier who is causing trouble.

There are certainly a ton of WWII games out there on the market, and many of them are excellent. The Outfit doesn't try to reinvent the wheel. This isn't a dark, realistic, drama-filled game like some others. Instead it goes for a more cheezy, cartoon-colored version of WWII where you're having reinforcements drop immediately from the sky and are blowing things up.

Whether that's good or bad for you of course depends on your personality. I have to say I like the realistic games, but I also understand that every single game shouldn't be exactly the same. There should be room out there for different styles.

It's sort of an odd mix. On one hand the graphics are very nice - the detailed brickwork on the ground, the clouds drift in the blue sky, the mouth animation while people speak. On the other hand, it's like an Oz version of the world. The grass is a bit too green. The rocks are a bit too shiny. I expect a horde of little children to pop out from the shrubbery and start singing, "It's a small world after all!"

The sound ties in with the cheesy design. There aren't moody, realistic commentaries or orchestral music. Instead you get cliches like "They sure have big mosquitoes in this part of France" that you get to hear repeatedly.

There are interesting aspects to the game. You get to be one of three main characters, each with his own special strengths and weaknesses. If you die, you respawn at a checkpoint that you can choose and can rotate to another character. As your health fades, your vision goes to black and white. Your enemy slaying earns you money which you can spend to improve your situation. You can blow up buildings or just watch the blades of grass wave in the wind.

On the other hand, some things are odd here. Units don't reliably use cover. The ragdoll physics are sometimes good and sometimes extremely bizarre. Whoever chose the acronym "F-U" for Field Units wasn't thinking very clearly.

All in all, I would recommend people rent this one first. Give it a play for a few hours. It might be that this lighthearted take on wargaming really appeals to you! On the other hand, it might be that you really prefer serious wargaming and would rather justkeep playing Call of Duty 2. It's best to know which way you will go before you pay for a full version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outfit of Destruction Aug. 3 2006
By J. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm just going to give the nuts and bolts here.

The Outfit is not the same type game as the Call of Duty or Medal of Honor games. The Outfit more closely resembles old school shoot-em-up games like: Ikara Warriors, Heavy Barrel, and Mercs (I'm showing my age here). Lots of action, Lots of destruction, Lots of fun, but NOT realistic. The Graphics are amazing on a VGA monitor, the Sound is good, but not great (Repetitive), Vehicle controls are BAD, Animation is smooth and extremely detailed. This game is a great mindless buffet of carnage and mayhem. This game is NOT a historical or realistic take on WW2. If you don't heed this warning, you might be very unhappy with this! I myself enjoy the realistic games, but every once in awhile it is nice to just blow the hell out of things in a cartoonish manner. I feel that this game could have been done just as well on the original xbox. Anyone interested in this game should rent it first before purchasing. This type game is not for everyone, and the more discerning gamers might not be amused by it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good But Don't Expect The Best July 7 2006
By www.steveo2006.co.uk - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Despite what the other reviews might suggest to you - this isn't a 3rd person shooter. Much of the frustration that I imagine occurs from people randomly buying this is that they don't get that.

This is a tactical game played from a 3rd person p.o.v.. So it rewards things like setting up appropriate defences, initiative and learning the strengths of the characters (loosely all 3 characters have different attributes and weapons which include things like speed and purchasing objects). Played as a tactical game its lots of fun. You influence the battlefield by what you stratergize (e.g. call in airstrike to destroy that emplacement there, or use the points (their only resource, gained from killing people or getting your arse kicked) to call in a jeep to circle behind? You can influence the battle, but you cannot expect (ala mercenaries) to take an army on by yourself and win.

It is a good game - though not what you immediately expect. The singleplayer is frankly linear and grindable (you never actually die, just constantly respawn). Enjoyable for an hour or two but limited unless you gotta get all the acheivements.

Multiplayer varies completely on your connection and the standard of you and your opponents. good connection = sweet game. oh so sweet, especially with 6 players. Basically each player respawns with 4 soldiers every time they die. you also call down emplacements which are manned by soldiers. These soldiers are independent of you and run their own ai. depending on how you're playing, its possible to have spawned 4 soldiers, plus how ever many guns you've placed in the map, plus any soldiers left alive from your previous death = a lot, possibly over ten. multiply this by 6 and you realise why there's a problem with multiplayer lag and performance.

Smaller 1vs1 or 2vs2 games are more playable and lots of fun - outmanouvering your opponent to strike the death blow is tremendous fun and there are few issues with lag.

One major problem (acknowledged by the developers) is that the vehicles have really poor control. This didn't bother me too much, but it is frustrating. Oh and water kills you. bad bad bad idea.

4.0 out of 5 stars A SYMPHONY OF DESTRUCTION! May 30 2006
By megamaiden, irondeth - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I just rented this game but its outstanding, yes very cartoony, but it has striking features. like the very popular destruction on demand, were you get to order a veriety of weapons and vehicles, like sentury guns, to jeeps, to halftracks, to flame tanks- very cool, to modern tanks and alot more. There are three squad leaders with their own special weapons and ranks. you can form your own group of five, including you- and drive your squad through every terrain imaginable.

graphics are impresive but not as outstanding as the very popular COD2. this game is also not first person mode, which to some might suck. I'm actually thinking about buying this game, but I might buy battlefield 2. There both a equal amout of fun and destruction, in my opinion.

ALSO try battlefield 2, a great first person shooter.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Outfit Proves Games Don't Need all the Bells and Whisles to Be Fun April 2 2006
By Daniel Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a gamer unphased by all of the new hyped up games with next generation graphics and sound released by the major game makers. Who needs all these games with the state of the art technology if they aren't fun? Nextly, the The Outfit's graphics and sound is much better than some give credit. Maybe the people playing this game don't have a good sound system and display setup. When I play this game with my Harman Kardon 240avr, the bombs rumble my room nicely.

THQ impresses me with The Outfit. Combine War Craft II Battlefield 1942 and you have the Outfit. Bringing in the heavy artillery to smash your opponent is extremeley fun. Even better is seeing your friend's face as he's getting clobbered. If you like a good war strategy game that is incredibly fun and addictive, try The Outfit.
