    An Old Gem. One of my all time favorites.

    Man down! Man down!

    Just in case anyone is wondering, this review is based off of the GOTY edition. The difference that I can tell in GOTY is that you can choose between a 5 man "original" mode or a 10 man "GOTY" mode career. The things tha... Read Full Review

    Old, but still very enjoyable squad based shooter.

    Swat 3 Mini-Review

    Swat 3 is one of those games that ages very well due to the gameplay, since the game is a simulation it did not capture the PC gaming market like Halo or Max Payne in it's time, making Swat 3 more of a cult classic. ... Read Full Review
