Description

Shadow Ops is an Unreal engine powered, action-driven first person shooter set in the near future. As the player, you get to play a delta force operative who has to stop the creation of nuclear weapons by tracing a substance called Red Mercury.

The gameplay is driven by action and scripted events, trying to give the player the feeling being part of a hollywood movie. The surround sound effects made by Soundelux, who also did the sound effects for the Black Hawk Down movie, add to this. The Xbox version can be played on Xbox Live with up to 16 players.
