Description

In the Moscow of the early fifties, MGB lieutenant Gleb Suvorov stumbles across a conspiracy to eliminate Iosif Stalin using a hijacked nuclear bomb. Having gotten into the way of the high ranking militaries behind the plot, Gleb has to fight his way through the Moscow subway and several other subterranean installations to try and reach Stalin's bunker, where the bomb has been planted, in order to save the leader of Russia and countless innocent inhabitants of Moscow...

Taking the role of Gleb Suvorov, the player utilizes a varied armament - from a trusted combat knife to sub-machine guns, the well known AK-47 assault rifle or the not-so well known PTRS-41 anti-tank rifle - in classic FPS fashion to get the job done and survive to tell about it.
