    Situation critical. Murderous extremists have taken innocent Americans hostage in a jungle stronghold. The valleys echo with salvos of gunfire and the whir of chopper blades.

    As leader of Operation Wolf, you are the hostages' only hope for freedom. You've got to blast your way in, hit the terrorists hard, and get out - fast. The enemy forces have you outarmed and outnumbered. To survive, you'll have to outfox them.

    Expect howling action and arcade-quality realism. In Operation Wolf. Where you've got a fighting chance in hell. But that's all you've got. From Taito.
