24: The Game
Description official descriptions
24: The Game is an action-adventure game based on the Fox TV series. Set in between Seasons 2 and 3 of the TV show, the game allows you to play as Jack Bauer, Kim Bauer, Tony Almeida, Michelle Dessler, and Chase Edmunds with all of the actors of the TV show coming back to reprise their roles through voice acting. The game contains many missions ranging from 3rd-person shootouts and sniper missions to puzzles and interrogation sequences. Written by one of the writers for the TV show, it serves as a bridge to cover many of the missing elements from the TV show between the season 2/3 gap.
Playing as the TV show's various characters you’ll take part in a action-adventure experience, shooting your way through terrorists, playing puzzle mini-games where you'll defuse bombs and work with various counter-terrorism unit programs, and even interrogate suspects till they crack and give your the information you want to know. You'll know what it's like to step into the shoes of LA's finest CTU agents as yet another large conspiracy unfolds.

The voice acting. Almost all of the cast signed on for the game. Keifer does Jack Bauer better than any amateur voice actor could. Another good thing about this game is the character models. They look picture perfect to their television counterparts. Another good aspect of this game is switching between characters. I liked the ability to play as other people besides Jack. The targeting system is similar to James Bond: Everything Or Nothing, which was also a good game. The minigames like the sniper missions and interrogations give the game some needed variety.
The driving missions control like a tank being driven by a mentally retarded duck. There's quite a few of these within the game, so be prepared to throw your controller at the TV screen. The second is pacing. This game can feel really dull at times. Melee combat needed a little bit more work before they released the full game.
The Bottom Line
A nice game that is for hardcore fans of the show, and also a good way for people who have never even watched it before to experience 24. If you can get past the driving sequences, this game is a good way to blow the 8 hours that you could have used to do something important.
