Supreme Leader: Cold War

ablegamers.com
22 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Supreme Leader: Cold War is a very intense game. It's the only game in recent memory in which I had to read the PDF instruction manual in order to know what to do. This is in no way a bad thing; it simply reminded me that we can take certain things for granted in this day and age.

  • Excerpt: It's hard to remember what games were like before 'stealth action' started to arrive on the scene. A huge proportion of games in many genres have seen 'stealth elements' creeping in, to the extent that they have become second nature to many gamers.

  • Excerpt: Splinter Cell was a very good game. It provided solid and oftentimes revolutionary gameplay, all wrapped in high-gloss presentation. This overall quality led to it being something of a hit, and it was followed by two sequels in three years, an exceptionally quick turnaround for such high-profile...

Splinter Cell fans will be in for a familiar experience in Cold War, a competent but unremarkable stealth action game that puts you in the middle of a Soviet conspiracy.

  • Summary: Cold War is a stealth action game that owes a debt to the popular Splinter Cell series, from which it borrows its third-person perspective, as well as its interface and many play mechanics.
  • Pros: Decent stealth action mechanics, along with some neat gadgets to play with, Storyline keeps you guessing and throws in a few good surprises
  • Cons: Enemy artificial intelligence is predictable but isn't believable, Not much variety or interest in level design, Little lasting value

  • Conclusion: The only “feature” the game pulls off with any grace is the X-Ray camera that you acquire early on. Using it you can look through walls and other solid objects and see what is on the other side – the graphical touches here are great.
  • Pros: Looks nice, Has a few nice ideas
  • Cons: Feels cheap, Never lives up to its potential
