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.

4.0 out of 5 stars SWAT 4 - could have been so much more. June 23 2006
By E. Fox
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Urban Justice? Jan. 29 2004
By Kenneth
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?)

5.0 out of 5 stars Think About It, Sept. 14 2003
By A Customer
Anybody who has played SWAT 3 will know what a brilliant and well designed game that was. So surely, we can only be able to expect better in Urban Justice. I HAVE SEEN GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE!!! Yes, I think it is at [...] where you can download a few minutes worth of actual footage from the game, it is not just a trailer or cutscene it is someone actually playing UJ. I expect that when it comes out in January, it will immediately become number 1 on the top sellers list. Go to various sites, read the reviews and think about what you have to look foward too.
