Delta Force: Black Hawk Down is not based on the movie, or the book, but rather it is completely based of the 1992 Battle of Mogadishu. While trying to be different then average first person shooters at the time, the game had its shortcomings: the predictable AI, the toned down weapons, but most noticeably the color contrast. This would allow hidden enemies to appear, or the player wouldn't even see them. The game also splits into two different perspectives, one which is more of a tutorial mode, and the second which is actually gameplay, and campaign.
