If you remember the Splinter Cell, this game could be cataloged as a copy and paste of this well-known title. Actually what makes this game entertaining is its history since, although it is not the best of all, at least it is entertaining. Set in the 1980s, we portray an American reporter who visits the USSR for the purpose of getting a report that gives him the longed-for Pulitzer prize. I recommend to play it calmly and try to use ALL the arsenal of craftables objects you have, since trying to shoot everything that moves, will kill you constantly. In addition, it really is the essence of the game to stay in the shadows. On the other hand, its gameplay is not the best. Aiming at enemies is sometimes a torture when they are covered. Also, you can get tired of having to repeat the same part over and over again, since there are no automatic save zones, just at the beginning of each "chapter". Bottom line is the game had potential but bad coding kill most of the fun elements.
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.
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.
