'SWAT: Global Strike Team' (PS2/Xbox) - Screens

The GST is made up of specially selected SWAT officers and ex-military personnel who have shown the ability to adapt to and overcome any situation they encounter. Like the U.S. SWAT organization, SWAT: GST is a life-saving institution whose mission is to uphold the laws of its operating country, so all efforts must be made to use only necessary force.

You are Mathias Kincaid, a former member of the U.S. Army’s elite Delta Force turned SWAT: GST element leader. The elaborate storyline focuses on you and your two teammates: Tomi Ono, a veteran sniper, and Anthony “AJ” Jackson, expert technical specialist. After assuming control of Kincaid, your objective is to command Ono and Garrett through several diverse missions while maintaining the tactical upper hand over your opponent. This means using the environment, the latest gear, the most advanced weaponry, the element of surprise, and anything else you can get your hands on to succeed. Using the full capabilities of your other two teammates is essential to mission success. In one mission, for example, you are given the task of eliminating a number of suicide bombers, which requires the use of the sniper to immobilize the suspects and the tech expert to diffuse the bomb.

Command Tomi and Jackson by issuing orders using either the intuitive controller interface or the optional voice recognition system. This allows your team to move quickly and effectively, making even complex maneuvers easy to perform. The optional microphone will take advantage of the expansion slot on the Xbox controller or the USB port on the PS2.

SWAT: GST will also be fully accessible to those who are new to the first-person genre by giving you the opportunity to use Beginner or Advanced control systems. You will also have the ability to play in Career or Arcade mode. Career mode follows Kincaid and his team from basic training through five chapters (21 missions) linked by a powerful storyline. Gamers can also team-up with a friend and battle through 10 multiplayer only co-op missions. If working together isn’t their specialty, they can choose the Deathmatch option and fight head-to-head.
