Joint Task Force

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
For anyone that hasn't head of this RTS that was just released (12nd September), stretch your ears because it's one of the best (if not the best) RTS of the year. The marketting campaign of the company is known to be bad, hence you may have not heard of it; but what the developers lack in babbling, they make it up for their huts-down work.

JTF is not like CoH (Company of Heroes), you control spec forces that do anti-terrorist missions around the world. Something like SWAT in RTS, but way better.

I tried both JTF and CoH demos and i have to say that JTF has 100000000000% more detailed and smooth graphics; just look through a Harrier ****pit and you see that the guys actually modeled a real ****pit! Now, take that simple example and put it on all effects, maps (it's the first time i saw so sweet and detailed maps - what's more, you can make such ones yourself!) and units and you get the point.

Some of the features:

* Ragdoll physics (the game is actually made for AGEIA PhysX cards)
* Adverse weather conditions affecting gameplay
* Line of sight, height advantage, camouflage in/behind physical objects
* Levelling up of troops and ability to assign officers
* In-building combat (buildings are as detailed as the enviroment)
* Direct (3rd person view) control of units
* Licensed real-world weapons (no fictional/ nicknamed stuff)
* Nice variety of troops and vehicles, bombers and other stuff (ie. sattelite scan, Predator scan)
* Almost real damage/armor system (ie. sniper "one shot = one kill")
* Ammunition (excluding bullets) is not infinite, you must reload your vehicles with ammo and your soldiers can buy in-field secondary weapons (C4, AA, AT-4, Thermit, Grenades etc); mobile repair units is for these jobs
* Not another "build forces/factories" RTS; you order your forces (if you have the cash needed) and they are deployed in the field; transport chopper for troops and supply/ammo packs, air carrier for heavy vehicles (you need to control an airfield for this)
* PAUSE ability to set down your orders
* Jaws-down effects (just check videos, can't describe what Physics can do...)
* Fully destructable enviroment
* Fully interactive enviroment; steal cars, boats, enemy vehicles, use static guns etc)
* Clever AI (will take cover, prone, fire with secondary weapons if needed)
* Media coverage on most missions; your actions will affect your funds. Do everything "by the book" and you're ok, start blowing up civilian buildings/people and you'll end up fighting with stones and woods
* 5 different campaigns around the world, 20 missions with interesting scenarios
* Co-operative, Domination & Deathmatch MP games
* 3 MP factions
* Many storyline movies
* Motion-captured animations
* Map edittor

Get the demo from Gamespot and you'll remember me.

Finally, im looking forward to playing with or against you online; it's nothing better than playing with/against human players in such a game.

Oh, and don't forget to check the official trailers (not that much the "gameplay"-tagged ones) and reviews from Gamespot again; they really blow up some minds .
