In an overheard conversation, two security guards talk about a new TV series called "The Prisoner", starting "next week". Since The Prisoner (1967) started airing on October 1, 1967, this would put the game in that time frame. See more »


When going from a level taking place in the present, to a level taking place in the past (.i.e.: A flash-back level), she maintains the exact same amount of health from the previous level, despite taking place 9 years earlier. See more »

Inge Wagner: I demand an explanation.
Magnus Armstrong: [Slurred] 'splanation for what?
Inge Wagner: Heinrich tells me the girl is still alive. Perhaps you did not understand my orders.
Magnus Armstrong: Yer orders? Ha! You don't give me orders.

This game is simply awesome!!!
21 May 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This game is just awesome. I could have given it full marks but the first level "misfortune in morocco" didn't impress me. Except that the game was a cool ride. I felt like a spy all the time.

AI is simply gr8 and they do respond to the sounds you make while walking and even the gun-silencers have some limitations giving it a real-like effect.

Guard conversations are highly funny with some adult humor. But sometime those conversations make you feel for the guards and you don't feel like killing them and that's the beauty of the game.

I had predicted the end villains/moles as soon as they were introduced in the game so didn't felt much of a suspense (because i played soldier of fortune 2 before, it had a similar storyline.. so you need not worry).

Sometimes, you also get a feeling of half-life while playing this game specially when you battle sharks with a crossbow and have steam coming out of pipes..

So, a really good game with a brilliant AI.. strongly recommended.
