There's a brief slide-show introduction to the story line. Terrorists want their leader freed so they took the president's daughter
Mission One: Downtown and providing police backup. Everything is timed. Bad guys are identified by a red flash over their heads, good guys by a blue one

Bad guys are everywhere. Shooting upwards is much harder
The first part of the mission is over.
When supporting the police is complete the player progresses to the next phase

Every part of the game is timed. The player can extend time by taking out bad guys quickly, but if you can do that do you need extra time.
There is night sniping to be done too.
This shot is taken from the rolling demo that kicks in if the player does not press the START key at the beginning of the game.
