Special Forces Team X

Special Forces: Team X is developed by Zombie Studios and is an online third person shooter that is multiplayer only which also has some very cool stylised cell-shaded graphics. It's also quite bloody as well! However where the title does come into its own is the ability to create over 100 multiplayer map combinations with just 9 unique maps with some decent customisation options for your characters as well. Interestingly enough, Special Forces Team X has no story, it's just team A versus team B. Some story would have been nice.

In terms of gameplay options, it features modes like Team Death Match, Hot Zone, Capture the Flag and Control Point with objectives to complete or just kill kill kill. Gameplay is quite similar to Gears of War with its cover system and shooting mechanics. Unfortunately the gameplay of Special Forces Team X seems very buggy at times and unfortunately frustrating when it comes to online play.

It appears that the formula to re-spawn players is random which means you can re-spawn in some of the most inappropriate places. Another downside to the game is the amount of players in the game and on more than one occasion, I had to wait for some opponents to join which is a shame. For me, it feels like Special Forces Team X is a BETA as there was clipping issues and some camera issues.  Really strange.

However some things are interesting such as the random map generator which puts the players in new and unfamiliar locations. Creating strategies is almost impossible as you don't know where you'll be placed. This does help against camping but the re-spawn factor interferes. The game does contain a levelling system which allows you to customise your characters and weapons. This is done by collecting experience in the game. All in all, Special Forces Team X, although quite affordably priced is just too much of a mixed bag to be great. 

Graphically, Special Forces Team X is a funky looking game with its cell-shaded type effects and over the top violence during the battles. With that said, Special Forces Team X is quite a violent looking game. Unfortunately the backgrounds are a little bland as are the smoke effects. The audio department works okay but at the end of the day, Special Forces Team X feels like a budget game gone bad. Maybe some more testing would have created a more playable game.
