Cross Fire is a first-person shooter game that includes action sequences taking place on realistic battlefields. Fans of Call of Duty, Counter-Strike, and similar games will like this one just as much as those other games.

Though the download and installation times for this game are a little long, many players don't mind waiting because they love playing it so much. The first time you play, you need to choose a side to join. You can play as a SWAT officer from America, an OMOH soldier from Russia, or an SAS officer from Britain. The character you play will determine your overall story line and the type of weapons you can choose. While you can change characters later, you generally want to choose one you feel comfortable playing for the first few levels.

Cross Fire is an online multi-player game that asks you to choose the type of game you want to play before selecting a battle to join. Team Death Match puts you on a team and asks you to play against another online team. Instead of bringing you back to life after you die, the game only ends when one team eliminates all the players on the other team. You'll usually find more people on the Team Death Match servers than the other servers.

Search and Destroy is another option. This level gives you a series of objectives that include specific items and locations you must find on the map. You'll get points each time a teammate destroys one of those objects. The game also includes an elimination mode that asks your team to slowly eliminate players on the other team and a ghost mode. In ghost mode, one of the two teams play as characters covered in cloaks. Instead of using guns, they use knives to dispatch other players. If you play on the other team, you must kill those cloaked characters before they can kill you.

You start out at a lower rank, but the game lets you move up through the ranks as you complete missions and score more points. It's much easier to advance through the lower levels than the upper levels. You may notice that some servers operate slower than others and that you can only gain access to some levels and weapons through game points that you buy with real cash. If you can get over those flaws and the somewhat outdated graphics though, you'll find a fun and challenging game in Cross Fire.

Pros:

  • Can play on standard computers and does not require a gaming rig
  • Features lots of weapons
  • Can play on multiple servers
  • Has four game modes
  • Challenging enough for all players

Cons:

  • Graphics are a little outdated
  • Requires spending real money to unlock some levels and weapons
  • Some games take longer to load
  • Not all servers are as active as others
  • Takes time to move up through the ranks
