Description

A military sim in which you play an infantry soldier. The focus here is on land warfare: you, your feet, a few weapons and some back-up. While there is a wide assortment of weapons from which to choose, you of course can only carry a limited number at a time. You can, however, drop your weapon, and pick up your enemies'. Numerous characters and a broad mission assortment provide for countless hours of action-oriented entertainment.

Trivia

East Timor

One of the scenario's is located in East Timor (Timur Timur) which has since then gained its independence and is now known as Timor Leste.

In the scenario, the player is to defend against East Timor 'terrorists', long before Indonesia was even remotely connected to terrorism, as known now through dubious government-sponsored *cough* Islamic terrorist operations. Though it should be known that East Timor is predominately Catholic and does not operate outside of the East Timor region, so historically not really much 'terrorism' going on.

The scenario also includes some minor voice-overs from the East Timor terrorists, though not really something an Indonesian of any tribe would actually say in real-life: if the player shoots at them, they will scream "ibu...ibu" (mother...mother) or "aduh...aduh" (ouch...ouch). It should be also known that speaking Indonesian was not particularly popular at that time there, being the third language after Portuguese and local tribal languages.

German version

In the German version the blood effects and death cries were removed.
