In this game you play an anti terrorist agent with an aim, an aim to put one man, the ringleader of a powerful terrorist organisation, to his death, or in a very compact cell for the rest of his days.
This is a game that is fast paced, tactical and takes first person, real life shooters to a new level.
You are equipped with a variety of weapons, from a sidearm to a high-tech sniper rifle, and the ability to use any means to push forward into the game from the start.
The game play reflects almost every aspect of what can be done in real life, making the physics amazing, i.e. unloading a fresh shell, from your shotgun, into an obstructing doorway; slamming it to the floor.
Another example of perfect physics is the ability to smash a grenade clear through a window, killing the occupants of the room it entered in mere moments, and in explosive fury, whereas in other inferior games a grenade would merely ricochet back into the face of the thrower.
Yet another example is when reloading your weapon, everything behind the gun, as you look at it, goes out of focus, so the game world is as you would see it when focusing on a close object in real life.

The level begins right after the last, going across the country and world, to get your man.

I found this game highly enjoyable as I used as much of the surrounding area and cover to my advantage, and to the death of those trying to stop me (most particularly in sniper alley, it was a tight situation where you either moved fast or lost the ability to move)
The only part of the game which particularly put me off is the final level, after an intense fight with one hell of alot of enemies there is a highly annoying twist...

Which therefore annoyed me somewhat

Other than this, I found this game highly entertaining and visual.

Sounds pretty cool. And I like unfortunate plot twists. Especially if they involve a load of killing and unnecessary death.
