Bo Hopkins plays a nuclear terrorist in the video clips which are inserted into this Playstation game. The video footage is so grainy it is hard to tell who the actors are. John Marzilli plays the General, and he does a good job as a sinister character. Marzilli has played very few roles but he usually does an excellent job as a villain. Antwon Tanner plays Hack, and he is the character that is usually popping up to tell the player what the next step is. His voice also provides tips and information during the video game.

Moon Bloodgood is a dark-skinned oriental female who plays Naja the Counter-terrorist in a few of the early video clips. Naja she doesn't do much except jump around and complain about her military support. I just saw that Moon Bloodgood is featured in Maxim magazine's May 2005 issue and she looks very good in the photos. However she cannot be very young when you consider that this video game was made in 1997. Maxim quotes her as saying that her greatest regret is that when she was at a nudie bar, she kissed a stripper and the stripper did not reciprocate the feeling.

Susan Turner-Cray plays the role of a reporter who is also a counter-terrorist agent. She appears in various clips making news reports, and she wears some pretty cheap polyester wigs (blonde, red hair, possibly more). Otherwise she is pretty forgettable. Philp Tan is Hwong, who is mainly a character in the first scenario, but his voice is used for all of the Asian characters who shout various insults at the player (helicopter) and cry for help, etc. I found most of these video clips annoying because they interrupt the flow of the game. Antwon Tanner as Hack, John Marzilli as the General, and Philip Tan as Hwong and all the Asian characters added some interesting depth to the story. The rest of the cast did not have parts that were very well integrated into the video game, so their roles and video clips are pretty useless unless you are a big fan of Bo Hopkins, Susan Turner-Cray, Moon Bloodgood, James Donovan, or Jim Ward.

As far as the video game is concerned, it is pretty good, considering it is old school 1980s/1990s video. There are not many old school helicopter games, and this one has excellent controls in the first two scenarios. There are three scenarios and each one has several missions. The first two are in jungle locations and you can choose from a couple of helicopters, a harrier and a hydrofoil and various weapons. The last scenario is set inside a city in North Korea, and you have to do most of the missions in a TV News helicopter which has no weapons except for a machine gun which is hard to shoot accurately. You also cannot shoot many of the targets or else the game ends due to civilian casualties. That makes it hard to find the extra lives and special weapons. The North Koreans keep adding weapons, tanks, and missile systems to shoot at you as you fly around in the TV News helicopter and it takes forever to blow up anything with the machine gun. So the last set of missions ends up being very boring. It takes hundreds of rounds per enemy tank, etc., and you have to be constantly looking for more ammo reloads, more gas, and more armor since the TV helicopter is getting shot to bits very quickly.
