This is a tactical FPS produced by the National Guard. Don't be afraid of the "All but dead" popularity, this game is primarily for a single player.

The game-play is a mix of tactical and action. The character is able to withstand more bullets than I would suppose a normal human can take, and to help him out is an arsenal of near future weapons and gadgets.

It hasn't been updated for some time now, but remains a good game none the less. It has an OK campaign, and a fairly good multiplayer. At the beginning of the game your character, retired form the National Guard, finds himself in a terrorist situation at New York harbor. As a security guard you see the need to help. You end up being reinstated into the Guard and have to run about doing missions of national security.

In multiplayer things run smoothly, and it is fun. The only downside is that there is never anyone in the servers for you to play with. Another problem is sadly, not everyone can run this game because of its harsh system requirements.
