Shadow Ops is an Unreal engine powered, action-driven first person shooter set in the near future. As the player, you get to play a delta force operative who has to stop the creation of nuclear weapons by tracing a substance called Red Mercury.

The gameplay is driven by action and scripted events, trying to give the player the feeling being part of a hollywood movie. The surround sound effects made by Soundelux, who also did the sound effects for the Black Hawk Down movie, add to this. The Xbox version can be played on Xbox Live with up to 16 players.


Shadow Ops: Red Mercury Windows Almost off the bridge, that barrel on the left explodes if you shoot it.
Shadow Ops: Red Mercury Windows He's rubbing his eyes because he got extinguisher fumes on them. Either that or he was on that computer for way too long.
Shadow Ops: Red Mercury Windows Fighting on the rooftops. If I had this view I'd have patio furniture up there.
Shadow Ops: Red Mercury Windows Staring down the barrel of a gun.
