After it is complete, instead of going into the setup screen where you would normally setup your audio etc… it will launch the game. Then you enter the CD key before you start playing. Da Intro For all you, Special Ops Junkies this game is for you though you're not fighting international terrorists, but terrorists in your own back yard! The game is set in Los Angeles California 7 days before the signing of a Nuclear Disarmament Treaty. As the leader of D platoon, your job is to make sure nothing goes wrong leading up to it. Da Gameplay Swat 3 allows you to either participate in Single Missions, or Career Mode. The Single missions are good for practicing and getting used to the controls Especially if you're new to any of this. Career Mode features the bulk of the gameplay. However, you'll want to get used to the controls before embarking on a career. A possible exception being those seasoned vets out there who are ready to take on Swat 3's advanced AI. Career mode also allows you to customize your squad, and to place your own character in the action. Missions will take you all over Los Angeles, leading up to the signing of the nuclear disarmament treaty. Moving through the environment can be a hassle and sometimes sluggish. Nonetheless, with some tinkering with the game settings that can be fixed. Shooting is a little slow but if you use some tactics in the game then it shouldn't be a problem. However, once you get into a major firefight the situation can change drastically. Your overall effectiveness could also depend on what system you have. The artificial intelligence changes with every mission. It doesn't matter if you play the same mission, the AI will be different ensuring high re-playability. SWAT 3 utilizes the keyboard/mouse interface, which has become the standard interface for the majority of games. I have a Logitech trackball and it works great for setting up shots and looking around I recommend getting one but it isn't necessary to play the game. The one thing that I liked was how the hostages responded. Instead of running into the middle of a firefight they run and hide. When you handcuff suspects they talk tough or mutter under their breath about how you've just violated their civil rights…just like in real life. Da Graphics The game's graphics are stunning to every little detail. For instance when you're entering a house, store, and church, you actually think that you're there. One thing that make the graphics good in the game is the blend of photo-realistic locations in L.A. from houses to the control tower at L.A.X.. The motion capturing of the characters in the game (which is used commonly today's games) makes the movement of the game run smoothly. When in Career mode, you get to customize your character face, and your last name is inputted on the back of your flak jacket, and you can actually see, and read the name clearly. What adds to even more realism of this game is how the characters look like their part either as a Hostage, Terrorist, or a Member of your team. Which makes you want to play this game over and over again. Da Sound SWAT 3's sound was pretty good. If you're in stealth mode the music slows down and things get very quiet. However, once you go into Dynamic mode the audio speeds up and generates real intensity to the game. The voices are clear, as are the sounds of the bullets. Radio communication is also good. You can actually understand what's being said. When you're searching for hostages you have to listen for them. On one level, I was searching for a little girl and I could hear her crying from behind a closet door. Make sure you have good speakers for this one! Da Conclusion Swat 3 brings out the realism involved with being a SWAT team member, and it is especially good for those of you who are Special Forces fans. I would highly recommend this title despite the lack of multiplayer capability. Other than that it is quite intense, and enjoyable game.
