Cold Winter


Some games are going to get kicked around in the press like a hacky-sack, and honestly, it's through no real fault of their own.Cold Winter is a first-person shooter in a period of time where it can often seem like every other game that comes in for...

If you can get over all of that, which isn't easy, you might enjoy Cold Winter. I've been following it because of the story for its singleplayer mode, which was written by Warren Ellis, but it's got a few other things going for it.

Cold Winter - PS2 review at Thunderbolt Games


These days, it seems every new entry into the saturated first-person shooter genre has to have some kind of gimmick in order to try to stand out from the crowd. Whether you're talking about F.E.A.R.'s slow-motion, Half-Life 2's Gravity Gun or Riddick's...

Cold Winter


Cold Winter is basically what a James Bond game would be like if Sierra held the license instead of Electronic Arts. While the game is acceptable, it's hardly a polished effort and provides adequate reason to feel good that EA does indeed hold the Bond...

Simple, straightforward shoot-em-up game play ; Environments are nicely interactive, if not exactly useful

Lots of nice ideas fail to be incorporated meaningfully into game play ; So much of this game feels so generic – like a poor man’s James Bond ripoff

Cold Winter opens with a scene of the hero of our piece getting tortured and eventually rescued. Consider it prophetic. Unless you don’t mind fairly bland but straightforward and really graphic shoot-em-ups, Cold Winter soon begins to torture you … but...

Cold Winter


Cold Winter trips most spectacularly with it's graphics. They're not bad, they're just not up to par for the rest of the game. Pretty average FPS environments and the guards have a habit of blending in with their surroundings until you're right on top...

Cold Winter - ps2


but there is virtually no stealth in the game. The enemy is quick to spot you and relentless once they do. And even though one of your earlier missions has you installing spy cameras to protect your safe house, that is about the extent of any gadgetry

Cold Winter Review


It's not pretty, but Cold Winter is quite an enjoyable first person shooter.

Complaints aside, Cold Winter is one of the greatest PlayStation 2 first person shooters ever made. It's got a good story, great controls that feel right, more gore than the NJ Parkway has road kill (and that's quite a bit) and some nice subtle...

Cold Winter Review for the PS2


Grab a jacket.

Detachable limbs; Decent A.I.; Easy and straightforward

No challenge; No rewards; Faulty multiplayer; Generic gameplay

If you've read this far, you can imagine that Cold Winter is not going to get the highest grade from me, either. The game's a breeze, which might appeal to novice gamers and people for whom achievement is more highly-valued than challenge, but doesn't...

Cold Winter


Look out James Bond, there's a new British secret agent running around, but he doesn't have your penchant for vodka martinis, loose women or tuxedos. While you may be saving the world from a nuclear disaster and stopping terrorists, this isn't your...

Unfortunately the game is too linear and the graphics and sound departments did as much wrong as they did right. The multiplayer isn’t much to speak of when compared to other games on the market, but the single player experience offers an intriguing...

Cold Winter on Playstation 2


Cold Winter

Even the audio is a bit underdone, and gunfire doesn’t sound different in enclosed spaces from how it sounds out in the open and helicopters may become nearly inaudible depending on which direction Sterling faces. Overall, Cold Winter is a fun game...

Product Specifications

There is nothing so cold as death. You are Andrew Sterling, a disavowed agent caught in the cat-and-mouse manipulations of a shadow intelligence agency. To facilitate its mission this agency now pervades all aspects of politics, national security, and the highest echelons of human society. You must fight through a complex web of intrigue, double cross, and sinister global interest. Cold Winter brings an intensive FPS experience to the PlayStation 2 based in the clandestine world of spies and counter-spies, unique in its emphasis on gritty realism and attention to story detail including detailed weaponry and true-to-life spy gadgetry and realistic human combat interaction with visual representation of body damage in detail. Built from the ground up for the Playstation 2, inspired by the best of the FPS genre, and offering new innovations in advanced AI behavior, real world physics, and online multiplayer for console, Cold Winter is set to create the console shooter that is as good, or better, than its PC counterparts.
