  • Summary: (Also known as "CT Special Forces: Fire for Effect") You belong to an elite force fighting against global counter-terrorism. Your team is made up of two crack agents poised to react to any threat. Stealth Owl is an infiltration expert, whose skills are accuracy and skydiving. Raptor uses weapons of mass destruction and favours close combat. Your main objective is to dismantle the NEMESIS network and retrieve the stolen technology. But by changing the chemical properties of certain proteins, the terrorists have made their fighters much more aggressive. The weapons used in-game are the result of scientific research: amongst the varied arsenal are electromagnetic bombs and holographic gadgets to destabilise your enemies, LCD corner-shot machine guns, heat-seeking rocket launchers, drones, infra-red vision, sonar vision, etc.; brace yourself against the blast of each explosion, more real than reality!

  1. Earned itself a 16+ rating, but anyone over that age will find this game too childish. [July 2005, p.94]
  2. Whilst the game won’t be winning may prizes for originality or longevity, it is a very solid action title with good gameplay and a level of physics that has remained elusive in other titles.

    There's stealth gaming, action gaming, two very different main characters, and maybe they should have just pared things down a little here and there, tweaking, polishing, and cutting what plain didn't work.
  4. It's a trite and aggressively boring version of what a million other third-person action games have done. And even for its budget price, it's a pretty lousy value.

    There are games which trying to be realistic. Special Forces: Nemesis Strike is certainly not one of them. Barrels of gasoline near almost every enemy, helicopters with life bar. In a strange way this game reminded me good, old-school 2d shooters, like Contra. You will have two characters, not at the same time, of course, but they will change each other from stage to stage. First one is a real bad ass spy, kinda Sam Fisher. Game process itself of course not as half realistic as Splinter cell, though I think its only for good. Our second character don't need to hide. Even appearance of his huge testicles make his enemies run in fear. Playing for both of these two appeared to be a lot of fun for me. The conclusion is: If you get tired from modern games, and all the realism developers try to put in them, you can relax for a while, shooting terrorists without making your brain work. There will be no complicated tactical decisions, and I can guarantee: you won't even think about storyline, because in this game, it doesn't matter.
