Gamers fight through 15 intense missions -- utilizing advanced training and stealth techniques and a vast array of weaponry -- in order to destroy key Iraqi targets and ultimately put an end to Saddam’s reign of terror.
"With Conflict: Desert Storm, gamers will experience the awesome power of a squad of elite commandos as they easily control each member of their four-man team in the battle against Saddam,” said Jamie Leece, President of Gotham games. “The game immerses players in an ultra-realistic warfare environment, placing them in situations where they must employ true military tactics in order to complete the missions.”

In order to present the most realistic depiction of the intense ground war in Iraq, Gotham Games recruited Cameron Spence, a former high-ranking SAS officer who served in Desert Storm, as a technical consultant. The result is the most authentic experience in modern combat gaming with stunningly rendered desert and urban environments and complete control of a four-man squad of elite combatants.
