This first-person shooting game is that is one full of action with stunning details.

If you're looking for a realistic game to play that involves shooting and combat, then this would be something to consider. It's a game that begins with action from the first steps you take. Most of the activity takes place in buildings that have crates and other supplies, giving you places to hide if you're careful.

You can play the game as a terrorist or as a member of the SWAT team. Each team battles one another during the game. It's sometimes best to play as a SWAT member so that you have access to some of the better weapons and so that you have a better feeling of taking down a terrorist. You do have the support of others who are playing online as this is the only way that you can play the game. There isn't an option for playing offline.

There are various objectives regardless of which side you're on in the game. You could hold hostages as a terrorist or need to shoot down a certain number of enemies as a SWAT member. The weapons are realistic, and there are several to choose from, most that are automatic. This option allows you to continue shooting at a rapid pace until all of the enemies are gone. You need to have a lot of teamwork in the game as this is how you will defeat the enemy. Develop a strategy early in the game so that you have a base to work with. If you don't have any kind of strategy, then you'll see that it's hard to get through all of the missions.
