    Short summary describing this game.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Spec Ops: Ranger Elite is a third-person squad-based tactical shooter released on April 29th, 2001. This was one of the last in the Spec Ops series before it took a 7 years hiatus.  
    The game, as aforementioned, is play from a third-person perspective. The player takes control of the squad "leader," and one back-up squadmate. There are  five different soldier types, which include rifleman, sniper-recon, machine-gunner, grenadier, and close-combat fighter. Each class may be customized with varying weapon and item loadouts, M16 assault rifles, M249 machine guns, grenades, satchel charges, medkits, and more.
    The squad commands in the game consist of conventional tactical game staples, such as "Follow Me" and "Move Up." The player may also command his partner to target enemies and to use or setup explosives.
    A two-player split-screen is in the game for some cooperative action with another player. The whole campaign may be played with a friend locally. 
    Ranger Elite was released to poor reviews and acclaim. However, the budget price tag made the game appealing to those that wanted action and squad tactics for a cheap price. Obviously, the game was successful enough to prompt two more entries in the series before it was discontinued.
