A combination of Metal Gear Solid and Syphon Filter, WinBack has you as part of the Strategic Covert Actions Team (SCAT), who have been called upon to stop a terrorist group called the Crying Lions. Already the enemy has destroyed the Center for Space Research, and have taken over a high-security complex that houses the GULF Strategic Weapons System. You have three hours to take back the complex, before the system lets loose on the world.
