The story is as cookie cutter as they come. A couple of special forces guys trot across the globe looking to put a stop to some nuclear danger. As expected, the story is just in place to have different locals in which to shoot lots of baddies and blow stuff up. Which is acceptable if the game can excel in other areas...but this one doesn't.
The main problem for me is I felt I was playing a mid-generation PS2 title. Weak graphics, glitches, poor controls, and boring level design. My friend enjoyed the weapons because he was running around with the rocket launcher the whole time, but I found them to be generic. Even worse the sniper was frustrating to use.
The co-op was the only thing going for this title. It's always fun to load up with a friend and just kill people without care. If you have a friend who wants to waste about 6 hours or so, and you have just totally run out of other games, this isn't a bad rent, and you can make fun of how dumb the game is while you kill away.
Looking back I might be a bit harsh, but for me, mediocrity is nearly worse than just a bad title. With a bit of dedication and care this could have been at least a solid game, but it just got the "pump-it-out" treatment and that ticks me off.
As old as this game is as of writing, it feels a good two years older. While there is probably no reason to write this review so many years later, there is darn sure no reason to rent this, as so many better games have come along in that time.

PS3 Physics and gameplay with PS2 Graphics

Back to the physics. I love the level physics due to thier realistic reactions. Unlike most first person shooters, when you shoot a crate in this game it breaks at the exact spot the bullet hit. If you shoot the corner of a crate only that corner is affected, likewise if you shoot it in the middle. Crates, boxes, and other various items don't explode from one bullet, its very realistic.
Blowing holes in a wall is unique as well. If an enemy is hiding behind a thin wall, you can blast a hole in the wall and nail him. For example each gun has different reactions to the enviroment. The pistol will cause a very small bullet hole if any, while the sniper rifle/machine gun will knock a hole big enough to see through and aim the scope of that gun through, the shotgun will blast an entire door down in one shot or a man sized hole in a wall with two shots.
This means that if you can't hit an enemy because their behind cover, you can destroy their cover with the right weapon or even cause the roof to come crashing down on top of them. The RPG/ rocket laucher, which is always carried by somebody, can blast open entire structures, very handing at removing those annoying rifle turrets position on a third story window. The Grenade Lauching is an ad on device for the machine gun and is great for clearing entire rooms quickly.
This game was disigned for Co-Op play at this is where it truely shines. Very smooth integration of levels makes two player Co-Op perfect. Worth playing
Shouldn't be called a "Conflict" game...

Instead of 4 characters and a variety of options with respect to armaments, you have two characters with fixed weapons. Instead of the expected 3rd person view, it's 1st person. Instead of decent dialog (or at least believable dialog) and ability to set the sound track, you have ridiculous trash talk and hokey music. Frankly there's not a thing about this game I can think of off hand that I enjoyed.
Putting expectations aside, even for a FPS it was kind of weak. Reaction time for most everything (switching between weapon types, turning on the night vision, or reloading) was slow. At times it seemed more like a survival horror/zombie game in the sense that only head shots seemed to kill the enemy. Finally, the AI was pretty lacking too, not only with respect to the enemy, but your partner as well. Frequently even though you give the "follow me" command your partner would lag a room or two behind... or occasionally storm into the next room before you are ready.
If you really like FPSs give it a try, maybe you'll like it, personally I decided to send it back after the third level. Frankly I'm going to wait, and hope, that maybe they'll come out with another Conflict game that lives up to the name. In the meantime I might just have to break out "Conflict: Global Terror" again to purge this experience from my system ;)
It's an Ok game.

they were weak. The people had block like look to them. Items in rooms had no texture.
ok. very smooth in movement. co-op is cool. scope view sucked no stabilizer button
good. very fast paced
I have came to the conclusion that the xbox is holding the ps3 back. This is a multi console game. They are held back xbox lack of storage space. I do undrestand it is the money factor of it all. but plesas we all don t need to suffer
