AC-130 Spectre: iSniper from above!
Originally recommended by a colleague, who said some of the missions were based on real missions in Afghanistan, this game by Triniti Game did provide me with shock and awe. Why? Because he himself was in the military and continues to keep tabs on current developments in modern warfare through friends, who are still serving our country. Perhaps it was because of this “insider” knowledge that, when I finally got myself to download the game and play it, an eerie feeling came over me seeing how the 3D night vision images of enemy units get scattered into tiny little pieces by one of three weapons available for the player to use. Basically, the idea that I was possibly re-creating actual events, in which lives were lost, gave me a bit of a guilty conscience. Yet, because of that same possibility, I noticed that I couldn’t put the game down. Plus, with the voice transmissions giving you directions and/or encouragement, you can’t help but feel like you’d be letting the team down if you don’t continue to fight. With over 10 missions and six levels of ‘medal’ achievement, there’s no doubt that you’d get your money’s worth as well as something to brag about among friends. Price: 99¢.
