Game description

Steal weapons. Improvise gadgets. Evade capture. Uncover the conspiracy.

On the run and fighting for your life, you are freelance journalist Matt Carter. Twelve hours after arriving in Moscow for a routine story, you've been stripped of all possessions, beaten unconscious and thrown into the KGB's political prison. Caught in the midst of an international conspiracy that aims to control the U.S.S.R., you are now on your own behind the "Iron Curtain". Using only recovered weapons and improvised gadgets, you must now evade and eliminate special Soviet forces and defeat the conspiracy or risk being either killed or sent to a remote Siberian prison camp.

Key Features:

Reviews for Cold War

MacGyver + Splinter Cell

In this game, you play a journalist, who covers real conspiracies, like the real story behind Chermobyl... In it's heart the game is a Splinter Cell clone, with some interesting ideas on it's own. The graphics are not great, but you spend most time in the dark anyway. The enemies are pretty dumb, and the controls are a little weird, but workable. What made this game memorable for me, was the story, and especially the way you can create your own weapons and gadget to distract, and disable your enemies. The game reuses a lot of levels, to the pont, that i think there is only like 4 of them, that you have to play through like 12 times, and the enemies are not that varied either, yet this game never ceased to be fun for me. If you liked older stealth games, I recommend this hidden gem for you too.

Not that bad as you may have guessed

Judging by the screenshots this game seems like Splinter Cell rip-off, but after giving it a go I have to say, that it is actually a pretty decent title. Of course, you shouldn't expect much, as it is a budget game, but still, it can offer some enjoyment. Even the graphics and audio are pretty good, considering a low budget. The gameplay is a stealth/shooter game, set in an era of Cold War (who would have guessed?), and it REALLY reminds of earlier Splinter Cell games. As the protagonist, Matt Carter you will have to spy, shoot and stay in the shadows. What was funny - the main character seems to be a perfectly-trained assassin, while being a journalist... Also, keep in mind that this game DOES NOT have automatic saving... I will repeat myself - it is not a bad game, especially with that price.
