I saw this game was cheap on Bundlestars and it reminded me of the SWAT and old Rainbow Six games, and it very much is like that!
There’s a bit of a weird thing in that you cannot play a campaign right off the bat, you only really can play single missions. These start off with the kill houses, much like those in Rainbow Six that could be used for practice. Although it looks like all missions are playable in single-mission mode.
In this mode you level up your handsome team of dapper career savers, and once they’ve gotten sufficiently good at killing people you can start a campaign, and unlock different abilities. I haven’t gotten to that part yet though.
Tutorial wise there’s not much to it, some basic movement modes and the rest you discover as you go along.
The Killhouse 1 mission went like a smooth buttery rollercoaster ride so I opted for something that looks a little more… exotic.
On the left of the briefing screen there are a bunch of challenges, completing it with a single man, without pausing, or with a single plan.
You can left-mouse click and drag a movement command, the white dot is the movement target. If you can use Control-right click you can set the look orientation whilst moving(as opposed to looking dead ahead).
In this case I’ve selected a locked door which gives me some options.
Here I have selected the spy camera and told number two to move up and look north.
The spy camera is extremely useful, it leaves red outlines of hostile targets.
It also gives us some more options when clicked on a target, you can also see on of the hostages to the left.
Our motley crew is busy lockpicking. Hopefully nobody on the other side of the door hears it… I honestly have no idea.
The left team is first in, and a gunfight ensues quickly.
This is not the result I was hopeing for…
The Plan-B team sets up quickly with fresh renewed vigour and decides to bang a flash into the adjecent room after they’ve taken care of the scally wag that wielding a AK-47.
If you loved the planning stage in Rainbow six then this game is totally worth getting, played it only for 25 minutes but there’s a few good hours of content in it, with a ton of extra maps in the workshop. Like CS-Office Am I going to play this Barry? Yes you are other Barry, yes you are.
