Did You Know?

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Berlin Contact: I seem to have lost my phone number. Can I borrow yours?
Cate Archer: I'm in the book. Under "police department".
Berlin Contact: Why must I be made to say such stupid things?

This game is simply awesome!!!
21 May 2007 | by 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.
