SWAT 4

 

Having played all of the SWAT titles from Sierra before, SWAT 4 maintains a good deal of continuity with its direct predecessor with an emphasis on methodical tactics and police realism. Everything in the game, from the controls to the radio chatter...

In spite of these shortcomings, SWAT 4 is still a very good game. No one has tackled this subject quite like Sierra has and Irrational has done a stellar job in preserving the look and feel of the predecessor while adding modern amenities. If you are...

SWAT 4: The Stetchkov Syndicate

 

SWAT 4: The Stetchkov Syndicate is a follow up to last year's SWAT 4 game, quite possibly the only police related title that will have you yelling things like hands up, down on the floor, and occasionally cursing at stubborn suspects and civilians....

Owners of SWAT 4 will find the purchase of The Stetchkov Syndicate a no-brainer. It expands on the original game with quality missions and offers significant upgrades to co-operative multiplayer. I still don't know why we can't enable artificial...

SWAT 4 - PC review at Thunderbolt Games

 

When I was younger, I wanted to be a police officer. I don't know why, but I wanted to be one. I think in preschool, it was just easy to pick a police officer as a career because I really didn't know what people did for a living or understand it, but I...

SWAT 4 preview

 

So far SWAT 4's multiplayer is shaping up to be quite fun. Keep in mind that the full game will have more gameplay modes besides the somewhat annoying VIP Rescue mode. Also the single-player campaign will no doubt be the highlight of the game itself....

SWAT 4 The Stetchkov Syndicate

 

Now with added police brutality

Noticeable improvements over SWAT 4 ; High quality scripting ; Refined team management

Few multiplayer servers ; The perversion of justice ; Occasional frustrating sections

A moment ago, we dropped a drunk for not cooperating. He folded his arms and refused to be handcuffed. It took a Tazer to the forehead to get him to oblige. Boy, the Stetchkovs picked the wrong SWAT team to mess with. Seriously, if we have no remorse...

SWAT 4 Game Review - PC

 

Every NPC found in the game, dead or otherwise, must have his position radioed back to the precinct. Those that are still alive and kicking must be cuffed, whether they're an enemy of an innocent bystander, and should you want a maximum score (more on...

SWAT 4 (PC)

 

SYNOPSIS: So often FPS games are all about who can tally the most kills, who can run around into a building an eliminate the most competition - an albeit far fetching reality for a video game. With SWAT 4 the stakes are raised - more often than not...

SWAT 4 Review

 

The SWAT games have seen some moderate success over the years, with quite a few developers contributing to the series. So far, Sierra's always tried to put a semi-realistic spin on things, focusing on police-oriented tactics and using the gadgets that...

Irrational Games' SWAT 4 delivers an interesting first person shooter experience that rewards superior tactics and patience above all else. Its visuals match its wonderful atmosphere, the gunplay's great, and the multiplayer options are extensive....

SWAT 4 PC Review

 

They move as silent as night, and are more deadly than an angry mafia member. SWAT, the Special Weapons and Tactics unit, are some of the most highly trained officers in the world. Developed by Irrational Games and published by Vivendi Universal, SWAT...

SWAT 4 is one of the most solid tactical shooters out there, but there are some problems. Irrational has developed a game that both veterans and rookies of the genre will enjoy fully if they can overcome a few missteps. You fulfill the role of a...

Product Specifications

Los Angeles: 2006. Gangs rule the city and crime's at an all-time high. As an elite SWAT officer, you must protect the lives of the innocent throughout 16 intense missions. There's no room for mistakes. Or mercy. What's it gonna be rookie? A pleasant summer evening on the Los Angeles Pier is ruined when police recognize James Fiero, a.k.a. "Baby James", wanted in a gang-related slaying. When confronted, Fiero opens fire, wounding three officers. As Baby James barricades himself inside an arcade with nine hostages, SWAT must respond. SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) is a tactical law enforcement unit organized to respond quickly to hostage rescues, barricaded suspects, and other emergency situations. More than four dozen accurately modeled weapons appear in SWAT: Urban Justice. Many are highly configurable, allowing you to configure the weapon's components (such as stock, suppressor, magazine, foregrips, lowers, flashlights, and optics) to a particular mission. The game's advanced ballistic model takes into account a wide array of bullet types, bullet weight, and material density within the game. Like real SWAT officers, you must be careful where your bullets travel, as they could pass through furniture, doors, and even walls and into unseen hostages on the other side! Not only will the weapons feel real, they'll sound real too. Over 40 widespread military, law enforcement, and civilian firearms were recorded at Gemtech's R&D facility specifically for SWAT: Urban Justice for the most authentic sound possible.
