The SWAT: Global Strike Team is an offshoot of the U.S. SWAT organisation. Made up of specially selected SWAT officers and ex-military personnel, the unit's remit is to supplement the income of the US SWAT establishment by taking on private jobs from countries and companies. All of the SWAT GST members have proved themselves in the field. They're adept at protection, hostage rescues and search-and-destroy, and you'll be controlling three of them through a variety of situations in this explosive new FPS from Argonaut and Vivendi Universal Games.
You'll be stepping into the standard issue, steel toed combat boots of Mathias Kincaid, formerly a Delta Force operative, now leader of the SWAT Global Strike Team. The engaging storyline centres around Kincaid and two teammates: a sniper and an expert technical specialist. You'll need to make use of the full team's abilities if you're to succeed in SWAT GST's 21 challenging and diverse missions. Recovering sensitive materials, protecting VIPs, defusing explosives... it's all in a day's work for the SWAT Global Strike team.
The element of surprise is often crucial, so you're best off keeping a low profile much of the time, using the shadows as cover and disabling CCTV cameras and security systems. You can even drill into walls and plant fibre-optic cameras to assess the risk of an area. As well as nifty gadgetry, you'll naturally be packing a fairly awesome arsenal of weapons, including blowguns, throwing stars, shotguns, .50 caliber sniper rifles and more besides.
When you've fulfilled all your mission objectives in single player mode, you and a friend can opt to play co-operatively through 10 multiplayer-only missions, or just blast each other to pieces in Deathmatch mode.
