Possibly one of the last true tactical shooters to be released.
SWAT 4 is a breathe of fresh air in a day and age of Call of Duty and countless clones trying to follow the leader. Ammo is limited, the enemies are a real danger, team-work and careful coordination and leadership of your team is an asset and a slow and steady pace is required to survive even the first few levels.
The guns, while at times feeling clunky, offer a level of realism in varying environments thriving in detail and atmosphere. Speaking of which, many weapons can be utilized in door-breaching and even non-lethal takedowns (Something that is very rarely used in games, especially FPS's). For an 8 year old game, the graphics themselves are also quite eye-catching!
There were times where I wanted to punch my screen, and other times where I wanted to punch my fist in the air after beating a level. SWAT 4 is a challenging game and is certainly not for everyone, but those looking for a real change from today's FPS's will find a lot of fun in this gem.
Give it a wonderful gander, it's a very rare example of a real tactical shooter :)

The game that practically started the 3D sandbox genre.
Well detailed and full of life at the time of it's release, the game was a hard, blood-soaked romp through a pseudo-New York City at a time where America and much of the world was experiencing untold Paranoia and Anger the likes of which the world hadn't seen since the cold war.
Reception from gamers was staggeringly positive and the negative response from rights-groups, politicians, parents and big-brother alike was out of this world.
GTAIII officially kicked off the GTA series as a best-seller with new methods of gameplay and atmosphere not many folks had seen before and a level of exploration that kept players glued to their controllers and PC's for hours on end.
But has it aged well?
After playing the previous games, coming back to GTAIII was a punch to the gut. I simply forgot how hard the game was and how wonky the car physics were!
And while the game offers a lot to do, the player is given buckets of money with not a whole lot to spend it on.
These little cons don't change that fact the game is a blast, even though most players today will be begging for a break from the hard difficulty and the wonky physics can ruin a mission at the last minute and incite rage in the most hardened GTA fans.
One hell of a blast down memory lane!

While it does have some nice touches in level design, there are some occasional bugs that may hinder the progress of most players.
Not bad, but not anything special either.

Not a bad start.
The level design is tight and the gameplay is tense, with close-combat zombie fighting and combine near the end.
It's a nice little mini-mod with a lot of action packed within, give it a go :)

A wonderful joke mod that does a phenomenal job lampooning modern military shooters.
Give it a go for some good laughs :D

A VAST improvement over the previous mod, with greater level design and firefights!
The mod is also substantially longer, with great atmosphere and a better focus on the story and just what the scientists in challenger deep were doing at the bottom of the ocean.
It does come with it's hitches, however.
There are frame-rate issues here and there, and the larger open areas make fights overwhelming at times and hard to navigate.
However, it is a great remake of the original.
Give it a go :D

While the level design looks okay for the most part, the mod itself is very short and VERY boring.
There is not enough weapons available and the combat was very dull with unnecessary cut scenes.
Only give this a go if you need a HL fix.

Challenging and well detailed, it's a shame this little mod wasn't continued upon :(

While the level design is VERY basic, the custom models and weapons from a mod released so long ago is something to admire, especially considering the resources modders had back in the day.
Not bad, and worth the download for curiosities sake :)
