You are the commander of a squad of Army Rangers deployed into Somalia during the famous "Black Hawk Down" incident of 1993. Make your way through a fortified oil tanker, towns, villages and desert landscape infested with rebels intent on destroying any US presence in the area. Command your squad with commands such as hold position, cease fire and engage. Railgun enemy forces from a helicopter and heavily armed Hummer. The game culminates in an attempted night time rescue of the downed Black Hawk personnel.
