With two sprawling single-player campaign stories, this game offers hours of entertainment. The first is set during the final years of the Cold War (1986-89), while the second is rooted in the fictional world of a second Cold War, set in 2025. The latter is characterized by robotics, cyberwarfare, unmanned vehicles and other mesmerizing forms of futuristic technology.
A particularly unique feature of the game is branching storylines, in which the player’s choice affects not only the current mission but the general course of the overarching narrative. These are known as ‘Strike Force’ missions. If a player ‘dies’ in a Strike Force mission, the storyline continues having recorded that loss, rather than permitting the player to continue from a previously saved checkpoint. This opens up the possibility for a multitude of different narratives, depending on the actions of the player.
Probably the main draw of this fast-paced first-person-shooter is its multiplayer mode which allows players to take the game online and battle other human players.
