    Swat 4 is apparently easier to get into but isn't quite as dedicated as the third game.

    I've been trying to figure out where to buy 4 for a while.

    SWAT 4 is damn amazing.

    I was told SWAT 3 was better, but I bought it off GOG and I respectfully disagree. Maybe it was the nostalgia factor for whoever suggested it to me. SWAT 3 is really dated.

    SWAT 4 is a must-have for anybody who likes Rainbow Six. Personally, I think SWAT 4 is what Rainbow Six should have been.

    Swat 4 is an amazing 4 (or 5?) player co-op game. Especially great for small lan parties!

    Swat 4 is an amazing game, but that said I find it's only really worth it if you can find 2-3 other people to play it co-op with.

    Swat 4 has a nice, lengthy campaign and plenty of mods after that. Co-op multiplayer is also an amazing experience. Iirc you could have 2 teams of 5 players that come in through each entrance. Really unique, and the graphics are really good considering how old the game is.

    SWAT 3 is really dated.
    The only thing dated about SWAT 3 compared to 4 is the graphics. It's a lot more tactically accurate. AI squad members check their flanks, do the 'slicing the pie' maneuver when making an entry, every individual squad member covers a part of a room and they cover unsecured doors/pathways/corridors automatically.

    The voice acting in SWAT 4 seems like it was made to fit the standards of angsty teens. Voice actors trying to sound badass way too hard while in SWAT 3 the acting is much more believable.

    The animations in SWAT 4 look so cartoony and it looks way out of place seeing how SWAT was well-known for being more of a simulator rather than a tactical shooter.

    In SWAT 3, bullet decals are realistic. If you'll look you will notice entry bullet holes are a lot smaller than exit bullet holes in walls and etc. That's pretty cool seeing how the game was made in 1999.

    In SWAT 3, using the flashlight gives away your position.

    When a team clears a room, they automatically throw in a light stick at the doorway to inform you that it is clear so you don't have to repeatedly search everywhere.

    SWAT 3 is just as good as SWAT 4 if not better (which it is).
    Don't say you 'respectfully' disagree and provide some asshole generic reason "It's dated" when you probably only played it for 10 minutes

    He didn't say it was terrible, all he said was it was dated

    and it was his opinion on them anyway, i heard from more people that they are both good games

    honestly you sound pissed off for no reason what so ever

    Well I respectfully disagree, it was too dated for me to get into it. Yeah I only spent about 30 minutes playing it, but some games don't age too well. I think SWAT 3 is one of them.

    He didn't have to say it was terrible for me to carefully explain how wrong he was.

    Just because it was his opinion does not make him invulnerable to disagreements. And it wasn't even an opinion, it was a statement backed up with a shitty reason.

    I'm not pissed.

    So someone can say it's dated and that's an asshole reason?

    and you can say if someones opinion is wrong?

    i think your views are fucked up badly

    It's not like he said 3 was shit, or like you and give out each reason why one game is better than the other

    but as long as you think your right then i guess i can't explain how stupid you are

    SWAT 4 was a fantastic game. But I never got into it because the numbers of buttons you have to press.

    Maybe it's just me though.
