This is the first game in the prolific Terrorist Takedown series. In most of its levels it plays like a rail shooter, where the player has to take down enemies with machine guns and rocket launchers mounted on helicopters or HMMVVs. Sometimes the player controls a stationary gun. When controlling a machine gun, a "heat" meter is shown and if the gun overheats, the player has to wait for it to cool down until it can shoot again. The vehicles the player is in have a damage meter at the screen's bottom left.

In some other levels, the player controls a helicopter from a third person perspective with unlimited ammo. The helicopter is controlled with both the mouse (for direction) and the keyboard (for height).

The game comprises 16 missions.
