Close Combat: First to Fight Previewed
8:16 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story
Gaming mega-site Gamespot has posted a hands-on preview of the Marine's answer to America's Army, Close Combat: First to Fight. Currently in development for the PC with Destineer and with Atomic Games for the Macintosh, Close Combat is designed to give players the experience of being a Marine embroiled in urban combat.
The game is set in Beruit in the near-future, after factional fighting tears the Middle Eastern city apart again. You are sent in as the leader of a Marine four-man fireteam. You will battle Syrian Special Forces, insurgents, and capture important enemy leaders. As you acomplish these missions, you will need to protect inoccents, as well as reporters and cameramen that often show up on the scene.
Gamespot had this to say about the save system in the game:
After you accomplish a task, the game saves the checkpoint, so that if you die you can restart at your last checkpoint, rather than starting the level over from scratch. This is particularly helpful, because even at the easier difficulty levels you'll probably die a lot. In addition to the checkpoint system, you can save the game at any point in the PC version, though we found the checkpoints to be fairly well placed.Head over to Gamespot to read the rest of the hands-on preview, and stay with IMG for any new information on the development of this highly anticipated game.
