The recently released Global Operations has long been touted as a potential Counter-Strike rival, though its design owes at least as much to the
legendary Team Fortress mod and its offspring as it does to Counter-Strike. In the shadow of Global Ops' big marketing push comes another "ops"
game, Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror. In one sense, Tactical Ops is more of a true competitor with Counter-Strike than Global Ops is. That's because
Tactical Ops is essentially just a clone of Counter-Strike, built around Unreal Tournament instead of Half-Life. The basic game design is strikingly
similar in almost every important way, and while Tactical Ops has some strengths, it isn't nearly as well honed as its model.
You'll earn money for achievements such as killing enemies, finding evidence like bags of coc aine, and completing mission goals. At the
beginning of each new round, you get to trade your cash for new gear. Tactical Ops offers a good selection of the tools of the trade. Helmets,
bulletproof vests, and pads will afford some protection from all the bullets buzzing around. You'll get to buy high-explosive, smoke, flash-bang, and
concussion grenades, though the latter aren't that different from the HE grenades. Everyone gets a default flashlight, but it's pretty dim. Happily,
you can also buy night vision goggles, which are useful on the many dark map sections. Does anyone play TacticalOps? Its a pretty good i recommend you
buy it Thanks.
