Other Fields
in the Area:
I've played most fields in San Antonio and Austin.
Review: I want to point out what is different between this field and other fields in the area when it comes to SCENARIO PLAY.

There are a lot of reviews for this field that tell you about the staff, prices, fields, etc. I want to focus on scenario play because it stood out for me.

Most other fields have a problem with scenarios. The size and shape of their land does not allow for anything other than an oversized game of capture the flag. Two sides that start on opposite ends of the property, the whistle blows, and the teams run toward the middle and create a 50-yard line of sorts. This line may ebb and flow, but in essence it is a straight line. There is no flanking, no real strategy... there is only a big battle with a lot of guys to shoot. Worst of all, the existing smaller fields usually don't work well for a game that encompasses the whole property, and only a one or two of the 6-8 fields are used at all.

Tactical's field allows some more interesting play. Because of 1) the size of the property, 2) the high grass, heavy trees, and structures, and 3) the location specific missions game play can go from having a 100 on 100 man battle in the city to having a sniper creep undetected all the way behind the enemy base. Comms were used well to coordinate attacks and call for reinforcements (bring your own walkie). Flanking was not only used, but was a requirement to take certain structures. All in all, it felt much more like the real thing than any other scenario I've been played.

Another big plus, is that there is no down time for respawning. You get hit... you walk to the respawn zone... you are alive again. A little walking yes... but no 15 minute wait for the next game to start.

Is it perfect? No

Is it better than most? Yes

Would I go again? Yes

I give the field (based on my experience there) an 8 out of 10. Good stuff.
