Spec Ops is the first in a series of realistic, action-oriented, real-time 3D third-person games based on elite warfare units - with the emphasis on action and realism.

Using custom-built, proprietary technology (Viper), the first title is based on the U.S. Army Rangers. Your main objective is to control your team of Rangers and eliminate opponent targets while completing mission sub-tasks in the time allotted. Choose between stealth or all out war - it's up to you.
