Description

You are the commander of an elite mercenary team. During a mission in Angola, you've been abandoned by your high command. You must complete with the mission with your remaining mercenaries, make your way out of Africa, rebuild the unit, and eventually find out who set you up for that fall, and take revenge...

Shadow Company is best described as Jagged Alliance in 3D. Command your mercs (up to 8) on missions and take on the different opponents. A full arsenal of weapons and ability to drive vehicles sets this game apart from others.

Trivia

Even the armed mercs like to shake their bottoms to the hot Latin rhythms. In one of the first missions, taking place at the Swampy Island map: when lowering the camera to a working tape stereo, you'll hear part of Ricky Martin's song Livin' la Vida Loca.
