Soviet Strike

In 1991, the U.S.S.R. (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics); boasting the largest military force in history, suddenly and unexpectedly collapsed. Since that time, the fallen empire has lain lifeless -- a rich corpse waiting to be picked clean. Now, a sinister ex-KGB general codenamed Shadowman directs a flock of vultures to swoop in from all parts of Eastern Europe and claim Russia's nuclear warheads and weapons of mass terror. With these "wars of liberation", Shadowman intends to shake democratic Russia to its foundations, bringing about a return to the Cold War... or even worse. Soviet Strike is the fourth installment in the Strike series and the first for 32-bit consoles. Once again, this is a shooting game where the player is in control of a combat helicopter, this time guiding it through 41 deadly missions across five unique 3D worlds, from Crimea to the streets of Moscow or above the Black Sea. This installment introduces a brand new "Living Battlefields" feature, where the enemy troops, their tactics and vehicle responses will adapt to the player's actions as they progress toward their objective, sometimes triggering events without waiting for the player to be on site.
