Steal weapons. Improvise gadgets. Evade capture. Uncover the conspiracy.

The Story:

On the run and fighting for your life, you are freelance journalist Matt Carter. Twelve hours after arriving in Moscow for a routine story, you've been stripped of all possessions, beaten unconscious and thrown into the KGB's political prison. Caught in the midst of an international conspiracy that aims to control the U.S.S.R., you are now on your own behind the "Iron Curtain". Using only recovered weapons and improvised gadgets, you must now evade and eliminate special Soviet forces and defeat the conspiracy or risk being either killed or sent to a remote Siberian prison camp.

Key Features:

  • Spy on your enemies through walls with the powerful and deadly X-ray camera
  • Complete missions in multiple ways: Stealth or Brute Force - the choice is yours
  • Interactive non-linear world: Accomplish objectives in multiple ways - find hidden paths, combine in-game elements to create weapons and traps, or silently eliminate opponents
  • Explore authentic recreations of real Soviet locations including: Lenin's Mausoleum, Chernobyl, the Kremlin and the KGB's Lubyanka prison

You get what you pay for. It's really just a bland version of Splinter Cell with a hilariously cheesy plot. Pay the extra $5 for one of the older Splinter Cells if you want a better game.

It's no bad game. Like maybe 6.5-7/10. But be aware that it's a way outdated (made in 2005), and even then it wasn't able to compete with Splinter Cell.
Why buy it? Well, it's cheap, and it's spy-story stealth game. You can pass without killing, by fabricating your own devices like rubber bullets, silencers and ether mines from a junk and using cool x-ray camera to look behind, well, almost everything. Oh, if you remember old James Bond game, Nightfire - sorry, it's not That cool.
Just keep in mind that there are great games for this genre, like NOLF or Deus Ex, and there are some mediocre and generic, like this one or that JB Nightfire I've mentioned. Best of luck for you, anyways!

I have to confess, this game was just a ridiculous amount of fun. It felt like I was interacting in a cheesy spy novel, and it did a good job at it. Well, this is a third person stealth/action shooter. The first six to eight levels are more stealth oriented, but once the Russion Special Forces, (spetsnaz) are sent after you, you can pretty much kiss stealth goodbye. It's all shooting from there. It implements a system where you can collect gadgets lying around like rags, alarm clocks, plastic bottles, cans, chemicles, ect. and McGyver them into cheep tools for temporary use. For example, you can use a plastic bottle and rag at the end of your barrel for a cheep, disposible silencer. You can also make explosives, paralyzing chemicle agents, and other completely implausible but fun innovations. But not to worry. It is a very easy system to pick up with very little learning curve. The story is told through a series of comic book-like cutsceens between missions with corny, voice-acted Russian accents that, (in my opinion) adds a lot of charm to this game. I found myself drawn into it and empathizing with the characters. Also I loved the ending! This game is cheep, the controls are very good, the graphics are great for 2005, there is a quicksave system as opposed to a checkpoint saving system, and I ask you: what other game allows you to have a shootout inside of Lenin's tomb? This game has a lot of atmopshere and I highly recommend it. Honestly, if there is anything even remotely negative I can think to say about it, it is that the character moves kind of slow, and has a lot of wide open ground to cover. The sprint system only works for a few moments before your character gets tired and has to rest, so traveling while sprinting isn't too much faster in the long run than walking. Traveling from one side of a map to another can be a bit tedious. But this is a very minor complaint. This game is a definite winner.

Cold War is a 2005 made, parodic stealth action game. It is some kind of 3rd person view No One Lives Forever with hand-made gadgets which starring a journalist. It was really good first. I even planned to recommend it to you, but then, i got bored because of some problems and changed my mind. There are some summarized pros. and cons. below:

Pros
+ Story is interesting enough
+ Graphics are already outdated but it isn't ugly at all.
+ Some unique attractions like gadget crafting and X-Ray camera

Neutral
No widescreen support. Control scheme a little bit weird and dull, but somewhat useful as well. Especially setting your walking speed with mouse wheel is a good idea. Music is OK but repetitive.

Cons
- Stealth is a little bit dull. You can't do so much actions for best stealth results. Furthermore, at the last half of the game, say goodbye to stealth.
- Characters you control can't run. They pretend to do so but they seems like they are taking a stroll on the park. Any NPC runs well though.
- Aiming is bad. You can't change shoulders while aiming, so, time by time you can't see the target properly.
- You're playing on same locations over and over again.
- Planting gadgets like mines is deceptive. You have to stop the desired plant location first, then you have to highlight the gadget on the menu and left click to insta-plant.
- Background sound effects are annoying.
- A frustrating bug on Meltdown level ( spoiler: When you try to stop meltdown in Chernobyl, you have to press two buttons and start the crane, right? Be careful, you have to use these buttons first or else... you can't use crane again. That means you need to restart the level. )

After all, it worth for $1,25 but don't expect too much. Especially after the last half, quality of the game started to decrease in my humble opinion.

First, don't mind my record times. I played it while offline.

I give this game 7/10. This game seems to be stealth game but in later levels you can play it like Call of Duty and the stealth system in this game is not good too. The good things about this game are twisted and excited story, many creative tools that you can craft them and I like idea of camera that can use as weapon as well plus the fact that main character is reporter making this idea is very creative.
