    Interesting concept. Too bad the game lacks some polishing.

    This game can be fun if you don't mind too much the banal story. The story centers round agent Michael Throrton who must stop the launch of some nuclear missiles and does everything he can in order to do so. The RPG syst... Read Full Review
