Covert missions take you through hostile environments where only your expertise in stealth, tactics, and firepower will ensure the success and safety of your men. Your missions are as unpredictable as they are dangerous: from vital scud-hunting missions deep within enemy territory to highly secretive rescue and assassination operations in Baghdad itself.

  1. Sure, there are some flaws but you can have some good fun edging your way through the missions and the Co-op mode is a godsend.
  2. In a game where individual acts of heroism are as important as a coherent plan, one brilliant feature is the rewards system. [XGamer]

    A very accessible title that seems well tuned for play on the console.

    With plenty of frenetic crossfire, you’ll get more frustrated with the controls than with the Iraqis.
  5. The story and mission objectives are great, but the game isn't polished enough to let the good points shine. [Nov 2002, p.136]
  6. While the multiplayer modes are nice, poor targeting, underwhelming graphics, and erratic movement make this game a mere blip on the radar. [Nov 2002, p.144]
  7. The interface and poor control are bigger enemies than the game's Iraqi soldiers ever are, and in the end, this is a game you can surely live without.

    Very good. The team control system is very well executed. The whole thing just seems 'right'.

    Bought this game a couple of days ago and it is excellent. The graphics and audio are abslolutely spectacular. The ability to control a squad Bought this game a couple of days ago and it is excellent. The graphics and audio are abslolutely spectacular. The ability to control a squad is so good and so much fun to do, you'll find yourself sending out orders even when you don't have to! Your squad members gain experience and skill levels for how they perform on the battlefield. The game also keeps stats for every member for that mission as well as total missions completed which is a nice addition. The game has 2 main flaws which is why I took a point off for each flaw. First, the controls are very "weird". They DON'T suck they just could be much better especially in the 3rd person mode. The target automatically goes back to the middle of the screen making it VERY hard to aim in that viewpoint. You'll have to switch to 1st person to get better aim. Also, 1st person mode is TOO CLOSE. It almost seems "zoomed" into the game. They should have backed off a little bit showing the gun and your arm etc... The SECOND FLAW is NO DEATHMATCH option. I have no clue what the hell they were thinking. The co-op mode is excellent but it would have been fun to have a deathmatch mode where you can control squad members to ambush your friend. :-) All in all a very good game and a must by for a shooter fan.
