Product Description

From Amazon.ca

Looking for a tactical shooter that asks you to do more than charge a building, guns a' blazin'? With a focus on sparing as many lives as possible, SWAT 4 not only raises the stakes, it raises the realism to a new level. Choose your loadout carefully and only go lethal when all else fails and the lives of innocents or a squad member are at stake.

In SWAT 4, you're the leader, nicknamed "Boss," and it's your job to command three other specialists through a variety of missions in every corner of a perilous, crime-infested city. Your special weapons and tactics squad consists of basic specialist types, an Assaulter, a Breacher, a Scout and a Non-lethal Specialist. These specialists can be customized to your tastes, and you can pick weapons that suit your mission objectives and plan. In keeping with SWAT 4's focus on non-lethal, life-preserving engagements, you can choose weapons such as tasers, flashbang grenades, and a bean bag-hurling shotgun. Of course, many situations turn hot, and the baddies you'll face will be well armed, so there is a complete selection of lethal firepower, as well.

Your missions will focus on neutralizing criminal elements and taking as many suspects into custody as possible. How you do that is up to you, but the game demands restraint, stealth and an eye for gaining the tactical advantage over opponents. You'll use items like the "Optiwand" to look around corners and under doors to scout for foes, before rushing in and subduing a suspect with pepper spray, CS gas or, if things turn ugly, live rounds. Be careful, though; killing innocents will end your mission immediately.

As squad leader, you make the ultimate calls about whether to enter rooms, open fire, or retreat. You'll command three other capable comrades with the only goal of keeping people alive. SWAT 4's intuitive command system will have you giving orders and organizing your team effectively in no time. All commands are contextual, meaning the game provides possible options depending on the situation you're in. This allows you to make decisions quickly, because when lives are at stake and the action heats up, one thing you don't have is a lot of time.

The SWAT franchise is well known for great multi-player action, and SWAT 4 is no exception. You can play online in one of three modes, Barricaded Suspects, V.I.P. Escort, or Rapid Deployment. Each mode comes with unique challenges and makes special demands on your powers of cooperation and command. Keep a cool head, and keep the body bags to a minimum.

I am a big fan of tactical FPS. Games like Swat 3 and Raven Shield appeal to me. For some reason, I don't like Ghost Recon...but anyway, this new SWAT game, Urban Justice, seems to me from the graphics and the videos that I have seen to be the best game in the SWAT series, and maybe even better than Raven Shield or Splinter Cell. If you don't know the idea behind the SWAT games, you are a SWAT team member based in Los Angeles. The game takes place in a future only a couple of years of. For example, SWAT 3 took place in the year 2005. However, the weapons and environments are true to this day, with Glocks and M4s, you name it! Now, in the previous game, you battled a wide variety of enemies, from psychopathic soccer dads to evil doctors and nurses. This game looks like it will be heavily concentrated on busting gangsters, the type that you usually affiliate with L.A.-hoods, bling-bling, guns and Cristal liquor. You know, the ones that remind you of Eminem or 50 Cent. I am excited towards this new approach. In the game, there seemed to be plenty of weapons to choose from, and the graphics were great. The enemies and interiors were very well modeled, and they gave a great feel of a seedy, modern-day Los Angeles. However, the sound was iffy to me, but I don't think that'll matter too much. Overall, I am very excited for this new game. Also, even if you already have SWAT 3, pick up SWAT 3 TGOTY. It has about 10x more weapons and enemies and environments. And now, you have custom missions where you can choose more weapons and even change the color of your armor. Go get it, and keep an eye out for Urban Justice. Gamespot.com has great information on the game as well.

I've played SWAT 3 TGOTY....seems ok, where you can control 2 elements of 5 man team...... the thing that is lacking is the deployment of sniper teams.... I mean, heck, at least the old game Police Quest : SWAT allows you to choose the part of either sniper or element leader career path.
With the option of being a SWAT sniper would be great. That means, you can watch the element move in dynamic or stealth from high grounds.
The other options is to have the front man use those riot shield to protect themselves from bullets. Still here are the must for these game to shine:
1) delpoyment of snipers (players can take the role of sniper)
2) use of riot shield by element
3) use of several elements (5 man team x elements)
4) more hostage rescue, (ie, terrorist will kill the hostage if they see SWAT breaching etc.)
5) underground train, aeroplane or even jungle siege (i know this is not Rainbow six, but heck, wouldn't it be great to have this scenarios?)

I didn't expect too much from this game, but I was pretty surprised by the lack of AI from your team members. The gameplay becomes difficult because you have to deal with only taking one or two shots before dying, and having a team that won't shoot back unless they get a good few seconds to aim. Being extremely close quarters it is hard to get a good score on missions (which requires that you don't shoot to kill your suspects but instead use non-lethal means). This game could have been much better if it actually had a good SWAT advisor to tell how team members move through rooms and how effective flashbangs, CS gas, and non-lethal rounds are. I could go on about the potential of this game but I'll sum up: great features that with better AI and testing could turn out to be a great game.
