Storyline

North Korea seems to be opening up to the outside world under the rule of Choi Kim. However, his son, Choi Song, a top commander of the North Korean army, leads a coup that has the leaders of North and South Korea killed. North Korea descends into isolation, and it is revealed that it has exported nuclear material to outside terrorist groups. In retaliation, North Korea is overrun by outside forces and Song goes into hiding. But the threat is not yet over; Song has access to nuclear missiles and threatens to use them on the outside world. Each faction in the country has its own agenda: China seeks to annex North Korea, and South Korea has the same goal in mind. The Allied Nations (a parody of the United Nations) seeks to restore peace, while the Russian Mafia seeks to profit from the instability. All four factions are fighting the North Korean military. The player must work with each faction in order to find Song. Written by Sam

Excellent!

This without a doubt one of the best games I've ever played.

This game is not only full of explosive action but lots of opportunities. You can make money (which is deeply needed) in so many ways, you can destroy enemy vehicles, capture enemy key members, collect crates of nuclear codes or stolen treasures and take on jobs given by different factions.

You have a huge array of weapons and vehicles to use, including rocket launchers, tanks, machine guns and helicopters. You can also unleash powerful artillery or air-strikes such as bunker buster bombs, strategic missiles and even fuel air bombs.

Explore the cities, fields and hills of North and South Korea as you cruise along by land or air.

I can't see any cons, aside from the map sizes which may become frustrating when it comes to getting around without having to deal with mountains blocking shortcuts. Try this game, at least rent it and see what you may be missing as the best sandbox game of all time!
