"Its Worth Playing"
As an elite member of the Special Forces, you've been chosen to bring the War on Terror home to the Middle East who would terrorise the free world. You must eliminate the Elzar Organisation and its leaders.
As most of the combat games the game uses the analog stick controls to control your Special Forces person. The game play is fun - while it can become frustrating if you're not used to playing with the analog sticks. Prior to starting a new game, there are three levels EASY (Beginner Level), Normal (Standard Difficulty) and Hard (Expert Difficult).
The story takes place somewhere in the Middle East. You've been sent in alone to prevent the Elzar Organisation from achieving their sinister objectives. In the process you must eliminate each and every member of the Elzar Organisation and anyone who deals indirectly with this terrorist organisation.
As you proceed further into the game, it will probably occur to you that you are actually in Afghanistan. Even though it doesn't mention anything about being in Afghanistan, indirectly while there are maps of the country posted on the walls. The modern warfare battlegrounds are from bomb-scarred city streets to nuclear bunkers and war torn palaces. The weapons include shotguns, machine guns, sniper rifles, explosives, rocket propelled-grenades, and more.
Whichever level you choose to play, you will have to do set objectives such as hunt down the leaders of the terror network, find the arms dealers to eliminating nuclear scientists. Even Elzar's leader.
The graphics are not highly done. Even with the sound, you hear more of the shooting and explosions than hearing anyone talking. The graphics and sound may not be top quality; they are both good enough to get the enjoyment and pleasure out of the game.
As for the Play Time and Replayability, it's wise to start at either Easy or Normal and once completed the game 100%; then you can try your skills on the Expert Difficulty. Is it worth playing again? It's worth playing the game on a harder level, because you'll become emerged into the game without realising it.
Yes it maybe a cheap game. It is certainly worth the small amount of money if you want to buy it and add it to your collection. As for renting it, you may be able to complete the game on Easy (Beginner Level) within hours depending on how much time you have to be playing the game. The characters resemblance is the closet thing you'll get to the real thing without joining the armed forces, especially if its located in the Middle East. While I haven't got a bad word to say about this game and would recommend it to anyone that is interested in action or shooting games.
Game play: 8/10
Graphics and Sound: 8/10
Play Time/Replayability: 8/10
