A third-person shooter in which three American soldiers led by Capt. Walker are sent to Dubai in order to recover whoever remains of an infantry unit, the 33rd Battalion, until they decide to take action against the militants situated in the city. As they progress, however, the logistical and ethical complexity of their objective deepens, and their perception of themselves, and their enemy, is put into question.


I don't know how this game was licensed but it's a Masterpiece in narrative writing.
A German Studio developing an American plot set in Dubai environment.
Its the only darkest and terrifying game which doesn't count in psychological horror genre.
Haunting arts and visuals with some of the best environments in a shooter game is quite Rare.
Gameplay is the weak point here,not that bad but not that good.
Enemy AI is like deadshot on hard mode but the Squad commanding feature helps alot.
Depth of gunplay is very minimilistic.
This game needs a sequel,which again won't be happening just because how controversial it really was.
Everything was 10/10 except the gameplay mechanics.
The hidden meaning of how far can you go to become a hero but becoming a villian without even knowing yourself.

Its dark, really dark.

This game's gameplay wasn't ground breaking at all for the time of its release, but it's the story that really drags you in and makes you not only understand that choices have consequences, but also why war should never be glorified.
