Back of Box - Windows:
    OBJECTIVE: Use any means necessary to find and secure four stolen nuclear warheads. Track and stop the terrorist organization responsible for the theft before they can carry out their threat to national security. Dispatch as many terrorists, skinheads and enemy soldiers as necessary to complete your mission. Failure means more than just going home in a bag, it could mean global thermonuclear holocaust. And worst of all, you won't get paid. Failure is not an option.

    PARAMETERS: A story driven plotline unfolds through 10 covert missions that take you through the political hot spots of five continents, during 26 levels of "Action Movie" gameplay. Your arsenal includes a variety of ultra-realistic real-world weapons to help you succeed in your missions. Your enemies are numerous and determined, and a good mercenary knows that wits and intelligence are just as important as guns and ammo. You'll use them all to stay on the trail of the highjacked nukes.

    The revolutionary GHOUL rendering system works with an accelerated Quake 2 engine to give you faster game play with incredible detail.

    The military is ruled by government laws, regulations and standards of conduct. When a mission is too messy to fall within these codes, they call you.

    See breathtakingly rendered locations on five different continents. Meet interesting, exotic people from all over the globe, and dispatch them.

Press Release - Dreamcast:

    "Crave's First Person Frag Fest Delights"

    Los Angeles, CA - July 26, 2001 - Crave Entertainment today announced the shipment of their latest Dreamcast title, “Soldier of Fortune.” This aggressive first person shooter presents players with a variety of missions in which they eliminate the enemy with extreme detriment.



    The covert-operative missions pit protagonist John Mullins against a fanatical and deadly terrorist organization intent on mass murder and destruction. With stealth, skills, and an armory fit for a small nation, “Soldier of Fortune” will give players an experience like no other.

    “Soldier of Fortune,” brings 3D environments to life with 30 deadly international missions that run the gamut from speeding African freight trains to Russian chemical plants. The game’s precision shooting physics localizes damage: for example, a shot to the opponent’s shoulder causes the arm to fall off, while a shot to the leg leaves the target writhing and grabbing at the wound. It will require a quick trigger finger and a keen eye to make your mark.

    “Soldier of Fortune” for Dreamcast is rated Mature and is available now.
