IMG Reviews Myth II: Green Berets
11:33 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a review by Andrew Martin of Green Berets from Take 2 Interactive, a real-time game of squad-based tactical combat powered by the Myth II engine.

Here's an excerpt:

Green Berets takes place during one of the flashpoints in the Cold War between the US and the former Soviet Union, more specifically, our police action in Viet Nam. The game is ten levels long, featuring a commando unit behind enemy lines. The cast of characters in this game from level to level for the most part remained the same. The characters included an A-Team captain, three Green Berets, a medical sergeant, and a weapons specialist.

After completing the installation, the player is required to go through boot camp. As the name indicates, this is the training level. The narrator's humor is quite similar to the dry wit of the original Myth II's training narrator. For example, in Green Berets, the opening line the narrator says, "do exactly as I say, or die horribly." In this level you learn how to control some of the more unique aspects of Green Berets.

During boot camp, you become more intimately acquainted with some of your character's special abilities. Such as grenade launchers, how to lay and detonate C4 charges, how to call for re-supply drops, and how to effectively use your medical sergeant.
