Description

Essentially an FPS set in the Ghost in the Shell universe, the game features four playable characters: Major Motoko, Batou, Togusa and Saito. Each character has their own intricacies and stats, lending a slightly different feel to the game depending on who is chosen. Also available are four different Tachikoma mini-tanks to take along on the mission, each with its own stats and personality.

The single player mode takes you through a brand-new chapter in the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex saga. A terrorist group has stolen valuable documentation detailing an historic uprising in the Far North. It then becomes your job to get the documentation back, and to discover the reasoning behind the theft.

There are four ad-hoc multiplayer modes available split between Free for All or Team deathmatches using either the regularly playable characters or the Tachikomas (you cannot play with a mix of character/tachikoma). Multiplayer gameplay is limited to 6 total players in one match.
