This modern warfare game title continues the trend of its predecessor by adopting the realistic graphics and gameplay in depicting the fictional civil war situation in Tajikistan, which is the plot of the game.
The game has fireteam of US Marines fighting insurgents of two types - Local Natives and Liberation of China in Tajikistan. There is an official connect between the creators of the game and US Marines and so the look, language used, uniforms etc of the characters is authentic US Marine.
The game will have players taking up the role of one of four distinct classes in US Marine fireteam - the Grenadier, Scout, Rifleman and Automatic Rifleman. The creators of the title have focused on giving a lot of personality to the fire team. They are four distinct characters with different backgrounds and personalities. They are meant for different roles hence all four characters have different styles of combat. You can change midway from Grenadier to Scout or to other any other character in a mission, bringing replay value to the title.
The game has modes like Campaign which has the extensive mission, the actual game. The other mode is Fire Team Exchange (FTE) Mode which has many mini missions under it. FTE comprises of missions like Rolling Thunder – Protecting Convoys, CSAR – Rescue Pilots, Last Stand – Defend Fixed Positions and Combat Sweep – Eliminate Enemy Forces. One can have 4 player drop-in drop-out online co-op multiplayer experience in campaign mode and single player in FTE mode.
Built on the Ego Engine, the game is set in a valley and all round one can see fantastic vistas. The gameplay and geography of the game changes as the players advance in the game, giving every level a fresh feel.
This title has been built as a mature and professional strategic shooting game with subtler depiction of blood shed and more emphasis on planning, artillery and missions.
