A Must Have Game,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SWAT 4 Gold - PC (Video Game)
I love this game more than any other game I have for my computer. I have never had so much fun playing a computer game. Swat 4 Gold also includes the The Stetchkov Syndicate expansion . Since it is an older game the system requirements are not that high.
In this game you play the role of a SWAT officer who lead four other officers through many situations ranging from a High-risk warrant to taking out terrorists. The game itself is so much fun to play and very frustrating at the same time. It is fun because every time you start the level the criminals, hostages, and wounded civilians are randomly placed around the map so no play through is the same. You are also equipped with an arsenal of weapons and tactical equipment to use against the criminals.
Even though this game is very fun it is also very difficult. You can be killed in around 1-5 shots based on where you are hit. Depending on where you are hit affects how your character operates. If you are hit in the leg, you move slower and if you are hit in the arm your aim isn't as accurate. Bringing what I feel more realism to the game. Though this game is tough, nothing is more satisfying than beating a level that that you had so much trouble on.
Multiplayer is also really enjoyable, all are team based. Barricaded Suspects has a criminal team and a swat team and you earn points by killing each other or swat arresting the suspects. Escort VIP has you protecting one player from the criminals. Rapid Deployment has your team disarming five bombs placed around the level along within a time limit. And finaly co-op where you and up to four other friends can play out the story based missions. In the expansion you can do this as well as play custom missions made from you or other players.
If you can deal with the frustration over this difficult game you will find this game extremely fun. I highly recommend this game to any gamer, and it should be a part of your collection.
