In my quest to briefly review and grade everything I play or do – I present to you you the 2005 spy thriller, Cold Winter.
Year Released: 2005
Developer: Swordfish Studios
Publisher: Vivendi Universal Games
System(s): PlayStation 2
Type of First Person Shooter: Spy
Problem protagonist is preventing: Some maniac that somehow reaches the conclusion that the only way for people to not use nuclear weapons is to use nuclear weapons…on them.
Plot was written by well known comic book writer, Warren Ellis.
Starts off in: China
Ends up in: Your typical secret base in the Himalayan Mountains
Protagonist: Disavowed Mi6 secret agent, Andrew Sterling
Sterling is caught spying by the Chinese, arrested and tortured. Mi6 cooks his employment record not to risk a international incident but a friend saves your ass. Of course that leads to them needing a favor from you but what else can you really do? Get a job at 7/11? Like where would the guy go? He doesn’t *TECHNICALLY* exist.
An a-little-above-average first person shooter worth a purchase at a discount price
