Söldner: Secret Wars is a military-based shooter set in the year 2010. Warfare is now fought using teams of Special Forces operatives who travel the world looking to quell potential hotspots. As commander of a Special Forces team, players have control over fellow squad members as well as helicopters, Harrier jets, and light armored vehicles to ensure their missions are a success. A dynamic campaign system allows key decisions, victories, and failures made during previous operations to influence subsequent missions, with players having the opportunity to outfit their team with new weapons as the game progresses. Completing missions earns players cash, which can be used to purchase more than 70 types of armaments.
While the game is primarily played from a third-person viewpoint, players can switch to a first-person perspective at any time. Available moves (outside of shooting) include the ability to jump, crouch, and lay prone, with the amount of damage received influencing a character's overall movement. Objectives are sought out using both a mini-map display and radar, and characters can be equipped with night vision goggles and similar technology to help isolate targets. Up to 32 players are supported via LAN or Internet, with multiplayer games offering hostage rescues, bomb runs, team deathmatches, capture the flag, and other customizable options. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
