Take command of a multinational squad of wartime specialists and go behind enemy lines to accomplish dangerous but crucial missions. Initially reminiscent of Pyro Studios' popular Commandos series, Nival Interactive's Silent Storm transports players to the battlefields of World War II and charges them with the responsibility of leading a small group of expert operatives to complete a series of level-based objectives. Unlike Commandos' real-time action, however, Silent Storm offers turn-based play, with a tighter focus on the precise execution of well-planned tactics.
Available operatives vary considerably. The game offers over 40 male and female characters of different nationalities that may be developed as the player sees fit, in one of six professions and with more than 50 possible skills. Mission areas and weapons are also designed to authentically represent the World War II setting. Missions are non-linear, with multiple possible solutions, and two separate campaigns allow play for both the Axis and the Allies. True 3D graphics, real-time lighting, and destructible environments help add to the realism of Silent Storm. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
