Shadow Harvest: Phantom Ops is a third-person shooter set in 2025. The player takes the role of two special agents who hunt a mysterious arms dealer. Their quest leads them to places all over the world, e.g. Cuba and Dubai.
Both heroes enforce a different play style. Myra Lee is a stealth agent who uses various technical equipments to pass her enemies without being seen, most notably her invisibility suit and the crossbow with different ammo types. Besides the obvious killing function, special bolts can be used for other purposes such as distraction or to hide bodies. Of course Myra can sneak behind the enemy's back by using the cover system and neutralize them silently. Aron Alvez on the other hand prefers a more direct approach and shoots his opponents. Brute force however is no liable tactic because this game uses the traditional medi pack health system instead of automatic healing. Other reasons are the checkpoint saving system and accurate enemies.
In most levels the player can instantly switch between those two characters, but sometimes the used character is enforced.
